First, the woman who made Tank Girl was going to make it as a film. (huh?) Never happened.
Then HBO was going to make it as a series (yay!) with the guy who made Daredevil (boo!). Never happened.
That's not the Hulk. That's a tall and muscular green Euro-model.
This is how the Hulk should look
Thicker, and squatter, and more monstrous.
. . . your enjoyment of a big dumb super-hero movie is hampered when the superhero doesn't precisely match the vision in your head of what he should look like.
Is there any show on TV as sweet, gleefully silly, and pretty to look at as Pushing Daisies? This show, which will likely be cancelled soon if reports are true, is just delightful, and a wonderful case of many elements (the acting, the music, the dialogue, the costumes) working perfectly together towards a very specific vision.
I am a bit behind on My Name Is Earl, but still enjoy it very much. The actors just give off such a palpable sense of the fun they are having that it makes the show fun to watch. And I also like to keep tallies of who is winning in the war of dirtiest jokers - it or Two and a Half Men. Earl's are certainly more clever.
The Office has become, as Sepinwall or the AV Club noted, can't remember which, one of TV's most affecting romantic comedies ever. Who would have thought. Taking the emphasis on the now-together Jim and Pam away somewhat by focusing on the potential for Michale to find happiness with a one-click more well-adjusted female version of himself was just genius.
I watched two-thirds of the first Kath and Kim and deleted it. Wretched.
I have yet to watch an ER. Casualty of too many late nights at work. I still hope to catch up though.
I've seen just two episodes of Life on Mars so far, and am actually quite digging it. The actors are good, the sense of time and place is excellent and (so far) they are balancing the mystery of how (or if) he time-traveled with the 70s cop stories nicely. I'm intrigued to see where it goes.
The Simpsons is both a shell of its former self and good for a laugh. I'll take it.
