Hulk bad. Every four year old I know wants to see this movie, thinking it'll be feel-good like Spiderman. But think about it, the premise of the movie is that the cool special effects only happen when he's angry. So we have ultraviolence and rage, torture, fierce hulkdogs tearing flesh out of the "hero", a ridiculous coincidence in the plot, and long boring bullshit scenes. We left early.

Italian Job good. Not as well plotted as Ocean's Eleven, but the dialogue was good, Seth Green rocked royally, and Charlize Theron has gone a long way toward redeeming herself for appearing in the Astronaut's Wife. It was funny, and the Mini Cooper S chases are awesome.

  • I'm glad I read your review. It only confirms what I suspected - a massive CG fest. I was pretty sure I wasn't going to go see this movie and now I'm sure. I'll be passing on Charlie's Angels as well.
  • Italian Job good. Not as well plotted as Ocean's Eleven

    In both cases, are you talking about the remake, or the '60s original?

    Having seen it, would you say that the world needed a re-make of The Italian Job?

    • I haven't seen the original of The Italian Job, but I own both versions of Ocean's Eleven on DVD and would have to say that I far prefer the newer one. Mind you, that may well just be because I'm a product of the modern world and love all the high-tech gadgetry involved. I suspect I'd feel the same way about The Italian Job if I saw the old one.
      • The original version of "The Italian Job" is wonderful, but impossible to find. I was first told about it by an English acquaintence [ashleypomeroy.com], but it took a year or two from when I first heard about it, until I exhausted all the local Blockbusters, until I finally got my library to transfer over a copy from another library fifty miles away. (My understanding now is that it wasn't available on DVD because the remake was on the way, and when it makes it to DVD the original will be thrown in -- which means I'll be gett

        DO NOT LEAVE IT IS NOT REAL.

  • I never liked the concept for _Hulk_, comic or otherwise.

    The weird hero movie I want to see this year is _League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen_.
