The Incredible Hulk
So the other day I wrote in to the Hulk website and asked for an exclusive interview with the Hulk. Surprisingly he responded to my email by saying he doesn't grant in-person interviews "due to insurance reasons" but he would do an IM email interview session. He said he preferred to handle it this way anyway because he's often misquoted... and misunderstood.
We became IM buddies and chatted it up! I saved the IM session!
Here it is!!!
kingtodd5000: Hi Hulk!
HULKLOVAH: HELLO! :-)
kingtodd5000: So is this Bruce Banner or The Hulk I'm talking to?

HULKLOVAH: FEH TO THAT ONE! THAT ONE WAS FOR GIRL CROWD! I SAY NO ANG LEE NO ANG LEE BUT NO ONE LISTEN TO HULK IN MEETINGS! PEOPLE JUST NOD AT HULK LIKE HULK OPINION NOT MATTER...
kingtodd5000: Yeah last Hulk was a misfire! But this one is seriously really good! And I think in terms of superhero movies it had some over the best action scenes I've ever seen!
kingtodd5000: My mouth hung open a bunch of times cause I was so blown away by how coolio it looked! And fun!!! WAY FUN!
HULKLOVAH: HULK BLUSHING! HULK DON'T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH COMPLIMENTS!

kingtodd5000: Hey Hulk can I ask you a personal question...
HULKLOVAH: UH HULK OK WITH THAT...
kingtodd5000: Very personal question.
HULKLOVAH: HULK LIFE AM OPEN BOOK.
kingtodd5000: Ok. Here goes.
kingtodd5000: What's your hulk penis look like? Is it like hulk big?
HULKLOVAH: IT AM IN PROPORTION WITH HULK. NEXT QUESTION.
kingtodd5000: Have you ever... had sex?
HULKLOVAH: HULK HAS CLYDESDALE GIRLFRIEND. NEXT QUESTION.
kingtodd5000: Do you make doody?
HULKLOVAH: YES OF COURSE HULK MAKE DOODY. NEXT QUESTION.
kingtodd5000: Is it green?
kingtodd5000: Hello? Hulk?
kingtodd5000: Is your doody green?
HULKLOVAH:: IS THIS AM FOR HOWARD STERN? AM I BABABOOEY NEXT?
kingtodd5000: No Hulk these are legitimate questions!
HULKLOVAH:: NOT LEGITIMATE! YOU ASK DOODY QUESTION! THAT NOT LEGIT! GET BACK TO MOVIE OR INTERVIEW OVER.
kingtodd5000: Ok Ok..!
kingtodd5000: Well, there's not that much to say about this flick. The action carries it a lonnng way-- and obviously Robert Downey kicks Ed Norton's ass in terms of acting. And Liv Tyler looks like she's always about to cry. She's whatevery too. And sure there's definitely is a dumb dumb factor when it comes to Hulk in general. No offense.
HULKLOVAH:: NONE TOOK. HULK KNOW LIMITATIONS.
kingtodd5000: But I think this movie is getting itself grouped in with 'whatevery' superhero movies and being sold way short! I think it's being dragged down by the last Hulk fiasco. OOH btw and I really dug your arch enemy too. The Abomination! Dig it! He looked scary and weird...
HULKLOVAH: HULK THANK
kingtodd5000: So... anyway... Back to the doody question...
HULKLOVAH:: HULK WARNING YOU
kingtodd5000: Ok ok! Jeez! Just one more question for you Hulk...
HULKLOVAH:: IT NOT ABOUT HULK DOODY?
kingtodd5000: No. I swear.
HULKLOVAH: OK THEN. SHOOT.
kingtodd5000: Umm... when you have 'special personal time' by yourself.
kingtodd5000: You know... that time when you might yknow... make yourself happy?
kingtodd5000: Y'know that time you might be like stressed out or whatever and you're by yourself
kingtodd5000: and you do a certain "relaxation technique"
kingtodd5000: Do you know what I'm talking about?
HULKLOVAH: YES. WHAT AM QUESTION. HULK PATIENCE VERY THIN!!
kingtodd5000: Do you have to be careful that you don't rip your penis off?
HULKLOVAH: HULK SMASH!!!!
Three Good Things About this Movie
- The action was seriously great. There's probably three major action
sequences and they all rock.
- I especially dug the very respectful and coolio handling of Ferrigno.
- The last scene gave me tingles for Marvel to get cracking on the movie that can sink Titanic.
Three Bad Things About this Movie
- Ed Norton has surprisingly become a take him or leave him kind of guy.
- Sometimes the CGI looked all distractingly CGI-ish.
- There's always those annoying comicbook logic strays that distract.
All in all I walked out of this movie near shocked by how much I dug it. It's not a great movie but it was way more kickass fun than I expected. There was something about this movie that matched up so nicely with the Hulk as a character. Smashingly good. Fast paced. Extra heroic. Bouncy... And sadly, often misunderstood.
