I'll never understand why Ang Lee's The Hulk was so ruthlessly pilloried. While the end of the script had its issues, the comic-style visual presentation of the movie was brilliant. Ed Norton's re-boot of the franchise wasn't up to the earlier, high standard set by Iron Man, but it was still an excellent adaptation of the fearsome Marvel hero. The Strangers was a stagnant, mostly bloodless torture-porn variant. Avoid! I'm not sure that Kevin Smith is much of a filmmaker, but he is a brilliant, extemporaneous speaker. Even if you're not a fan of his films, check out Sold Out. Why can't Family Guy and South Park just get along?

As the Obamapresidency looms, I'm starting to wonder how people plan to make fun of him. Anyone else getting a strong Calvin Coolidge vibe from him? I mean, he is one laconic motherfucker and laconic doesn't really feed comedy. I can see him saying, "I like to laugh as much as the next guy...but seriously, healthcare costs are spiraling out of control...people are having trouble...making ends meet--". Thankfully, our lame-duck president always provided plenty of material for the funny. I'll say it--the original Incredible Hulk series sucked balls. If you're going to be a busty college girl, you may as well be X-Posed!
