Movie Review: The Incredible Hulk (2008)

Eyeroll Moment: He’s been hiding out in Brazil for over a year, *knowing* that he’s on the run, and he doesn’t have *any* boltholes planned for when the US military shows up?

Boys vs. Girls Moment:
(dumps contents of purse) “Basically, we can’t use any of this, ’cause they can track all of it.”
“Well, my lip gloss — can they track that?”

(What does Elizabeth think is necessary for going on the run? Lip gloss. What does Bruce think is necessary? Well, pants would be nice.)

Thing I Most Want to See in the Avengers Movie: Connecting Bruce Banner with Tony Stark’s hair stylist. I had high hopes when Betty cut his hair, but it didn’t seem to help at all.

Best Shout-Out: purple pants!!!

Silliest Science: (and I’m ignoring *everything* that went into the essential “plot” of the movie) That when Stan Lee drank the tainted soda, doctors actually thought to scan him for *gamma radiation poisoning*. Uh huh. That seems likely. (Hey, this old guy just collapsed. Could be a million reasons. Hey, I know! Let’s scan him for some obscure form of radiation that we have ZERO reason to think he’s been exposed to!)

Favorite Line:
“It is a long way uptown. I think the subway’s probably quickest.”
“Me, on a metal tube, deep underground, with hundreds of people in the most aggressive city in the world?”
“Right; let’s get a cab.”
