The Incredible Hulk
The Plot: The Hulk is back! Did you miss him? No? Me neither.
Is it worth eleven dollars?: I’m not going to lie, the movie looks action packed and is getting good reviews already. But really, was Ang Lee’s Hulk so bad that it warrants a remake as little as five years later? Of all the recent superhero movies that sucked, why remake the only one that was sort of interesting? It might not have been your typical summer blockbuster, but for fuck’s sake, Eric Bana fought a giant poodle! What more do people need?
This film should take priority in terms of Marvel remakes.
Where is it playing in Brooklyn/New York?: United Artists on Court Street, Cobble Hill Cinemas, Park Slope Pavilion.
Is it worth eleven dollars?: Everyone is talking about M. Night making his first R-Rated film. Who cares? My guess is that it’s going to suck and be more violent than his average films. First of all, I have read the spoilers for the film. While I’m not going to reveal what exactly is “happening,” I can tell you that it’s really stupid. He tried to release special footage of the film, but it just made him look desperate and Mark Wahlberg look like the worst actor in history. My only hope is that Zooey Deschanel emerges unscathed.

Is it worth eleven dollars?: Herzog has been in the news more recently for being one of two psychopathic directors involved in a fight over Bad Lieutenant. I haven’t heard much about this documentary to be honest. But, given some of his past experience, I’m sure it’ll be worth seeing.

The Plot: A group of mumbling hipsters go on vacation and plan a horror movie that starts to come true.
Is it worth eleven dollars?: Definitely. The last Duplass Brothers movie was the emotionally taxing Puffy Chair. This looks like a very interesting horror concept from some of the pioneers of mumblecore (this could be called mumblehorror). The reviews confirm, this is definitely worth checking out.
Where is it playing in Brooklyn/New York?: I can’t seem to find that out. I’ll update when I do.
The Plot: Guy Maddin tries to relive his childhood in Winnipeg by casting people to act it out in his soon to be former apartment.
Is it worth eleven dollars?: Yes. This movie looks balls out crazy, but fascinating. I was upset to miss Brand Upon the Brain when it came out last year, but I’m going to be sure catch this in theaters. People are already saying it’s fantastic.
Where is it playing in Brooklyn/New York?: IFC Center.
Eraserhead is the midnight movie at the IFC Center, and 2001: A Space Odyssey is playing at midnight tomorrow at the Landmark Sunshine.
