@Marvel: Dear Russo Brothers, you done #Hulk dirty.

Posted on Updated on

I can’t take credit for my post title. It was actually my son who made this comment after the movie. I just borrowed it. Anyway, I don’t think I need to make this a lengthy post to get my point across.
After 2 subpar solo #hulk movies, the #avengers finally got the Hulk right with #Ragnarok also adding to the awesomeness that is the hulk. Then the Russo brothers happened and with the snap of their fingers they wrecked everything about the hulk. And they did it without the gauntlet.
I sat through a 2hr40min infinity war movie only to see a couple minutes worth of the hulk early on getting his ass kicked by thanos.
To say I came out of that movie dismayed is an understatement. I rationalized it in that hulk had alot of on screen time in ragnarok and I was totally convinced he would get his payback in endgame. That didn’t happen. The rumours were confirmed and in endgame, hulk became Professor Hulk. I will be honest I didn’t know what to make of it. It was weird hearing Ruffalo’s voice in the body of the Hulk. What I also didn’t expect was the nonsense that came along with him being professor Hulk.

If I was dismayed coming out of infinity war I really don’t know what word to use after sitting through a 3hr movie and witnessing the destruction of such a great marvel character occur before my eyes.
That scene where he grudgingly smashed the top of the car and barely tossed the motorcycle. WOW!!! Horrible. So Hulk now is a lover, not a fighter? Ridiculous! And finally to witness an epic battle scene versus Thanos where a significant amount of heroes took a shot at him and there is NO HULK AND THANOS SHOWDOWN!!!! What in the fucks, fuck is that all about? How does that not happen??? Pure and unadulterated fuckery is what it is.
Even in the comicbook world as Professor Hulk, he never shied away from a confrontation. Never. Hulk deserved a better sendoff. He deserved to finish with a bang! He was done in dirty. There is no better way to say it.

PS: the fact that his snap using the gauntlet brought everyone back does nothing to appease me. Nothing. Noone will be able to convince me this was the proper storyline for this iconic hero.

Sunday morning coffee with a little musing: Captain Meh-val

Posted on Updated on

When it was first announced that we’d be getting a Captain Marvel movie starring Brie Larson I was very excited. Today, I really don’t know why. Growing up I never followed Ms Marvel nor prior to this movie had I watched any movie starring Brie Larson and I know she has a long list of accomplishments.

I don’t let any reviews or opinions sway me from going to watch a movie. Having said that the negative tweets leading up to the movie admittedly got me worried. However I made it a point of not reading the actual article attached to the tweets.

As I do all the time, i went to see captain marvel the first weekend it was released. To my surprise, the cinema was half empty. It could have been due to the time of day but still. There really isn’t much to say. The hype machine was definitely working overtime for this movie. I came out of the movie feeling kinda meh about it. It had some moments but for the most it is underwhelming. And honestly I could care less who the lead is.

Two of my favorite super heroes are Hulk and Spawn. Both Todd McFarlane and Ang Lee brilliant in their own right but those movies. What. In. The. Hell. Am I right? And to boot I am getting an uneasy feeling already about the next #Spawn movie.

After watching Captain Marvel I made it a point of watching youtube reviews and it’s crazy how much hate there is toward this movie and Brie Larson. By both men and women. There’s no doubt Brie shot herself in the foot with those ‘white men’ comments. She also tried to play down and even come across like she couldn’t remember exactly what she had said during an interview with a white man who literally mansplained to her how it was all overblown. That must have gone over well with Brie. Lol.
Anyway, everyone has an opinion and some I agree with, some I don’t. That’s how it works.
It was made clear from the get-go that this movie is a feminist movie but as a female reviewer put it, it wasn’t necessary to dumb down the men just to get the point across. And yes, there are some scenes where I just rolled my eyes. On the flip side, these same scenes were critiqued by a male reviewer as terrible because ‘what man would say that?’… uh, I don’t know what hole this guy is living in.

There are a couple things that irk me heading into endgame. Endgame should be about the original avengers but the timing of Captain Marvel makes me think that she’ll come in and be the answer to everything. The other thing is that annoying bit at the end of Captain Marvel that leads you to believe that the avengers initiative started with Carol ‘Avenger’ Danvers… bullshit.

I would love to see Hulk pull the stunt he did with Thor but on Captain Marvel just to bring her down to earth a little. 😁

@Marvel #infinitywar: forget Waldo, where the F**K was #Hulk?

Alright. I have waited a week but now it’s time to vent.. So potential spoilers on the way. I think the post title says it all. Literally if you blinked you missed the Hulk in Infinity War. He may have been on screen for about a minute and I think I am being generous.

This was me after the movie and although the ending was all sorts of WTF… I was also disturbed and disappointed with how the Hulk character was handled.

For 2hrs19mins and 30 secs or so I was wondering when I’d see the Hulk again. So here’s my take on this…

I am assuming the lack of screen time in infinity war has to do with the amount of screen time Hulk had in Ragnarok. What isn’t acceptable though is how little time he had. As well, how Hulk was treated.

The whole thing is messed up. So I am supposed to believe that because in those whopping 30secs he lost to Thanos that somehow Hulk was afraid to come out and ‘play’ again. On the one hand in Ragnarok we get to see a Hulk that is starting to talk although child like so.. It’s feasible to buy into him being scared to face Thanos again. On the other hand, the INCREDIBLE Hulk, a SUPER HERO, the mightiest of heroes is scared??? Say Whattttt?

Let’s get this straight… up to this point Hulk was able to take out the Abomination, handled Thor, was able and willing to take on the wolf and surtur in Ragnarok but now he refuses to take on Thanos because he ‘lost’ in a maybe 30sec encounter? BULLSHITTTTTT!!!! In the meantime the likes of all the other heroes, even Black widow and a teenaged spiderman take on Thanos and family without hesitation. So Hulk is painted in a cowards light? Unacceptable!!!

What I hope for is that in Avengers 4 Hulk is given a bigger role and that payback will be a bitch!!!!
