DAMNING WITH PUNY PRAISE
While I’ve never liked the Hulk as much as, say, Meryl Yourish, I always thought it was a good character. And, unlike Meryl, I actually liked the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno Incredible Hulk TV show from the 1970s, even with “David” Banner. What can I say–I liked him enough when he wasn’t angry to put up with the name change and the lame Hulkness.
But the Hulk movie is getting awful reviews. The most succinct of which is from Jay Solo who writes:
I predict Hulk 1 will be to Hulk films, if they do more, what Star Trek the Motion Picture is to Wrath of Khan.
Ouch! Jay Smash puny movie.
Speaking of Meryl, she answers the age old question: why are the Hulk’s pants always purple and why don’t they rip off like the rest of his clothes?
