GO TO THE MOVIES THIS WEEKEND (A LOT)

Hulk joins Devin in a plea to get your butts in theater seats this weekend.

GO TO THE MOVIES THIS WEEKEND (A LOT)

QUITE HONESTLY, HULK IS HAVING A BIT OF A CRISIS RIGHT NOW... BECAUSE THIS WEEK THERE ARE THREE MOVIES COMING OUT AND HULK ADORES THEM ALL.

HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN? HOW DO WE GO MONTHS AND MONTHS WITH A FEW CHOICE OFFERINGS AND THEN GET THE FIGURATIVE GOODS ALL AT ONCE? HULK'S NOT SURE. PERHAPS BECAUSE HOLLYWOOD DOESN'T SEE "QUALITY" THE SAME WAY MOST OF US DO. PERHAPS BECAUSE THEY DON'T SEE HOW THREE MOVIES COULD ALL BE IN COMPETITION. BUT IF YOU REALLY LOVE MOVIES. THERE ARE THREE THAT ARE SO WORTH YOUR TIME...

SHORT TERM 12 - HERE'S HULK'S REVIEW. IT'S A MASTERPIECE IN EVERY SENSE. A SMALL MOVIE THAT PROVES THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS SMALL MOVIES. AND DO NOT MISTAKE IT FOR SOME FLUFFY INDIE FEEL GOOD STUFF. IT EARNS EVERY SINGLE MOMENT BY BRINGING US THROUGH THE TRENCHES OF HUMANITY. HULK ADORES THIS MOVIE WITH EVERY FIBER OF HULK'S BEING.

THE WORLD'S END - THIRD CORNETTO! REALLY THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH, RIGHT? AND EVEN THOUGH YOU WILL GET YOUR STEADY STREAM OF PITCH PERFECT EDITING AND HILARIOUS GAGS, IT IS A RATHER DIFFERENT ENTRY FROM THE TRIO IN SOME WAYS AND REALLY PUSHES THE CENTRAL CHARACTER TO SOME INTERESTING PLACES. HULK'S REALLY CURIOUS TO SEE HOW PEOPLE REACT. AS OUTWARDLY COMIC AS SIMON PEGG'S PERFORMANCE CAN BE AT TIMES, WATCH THE WAY IT'S CONSTANTLY MASKING A REALITY. IT MAY VERY WELL BE HIS BEST WORK, WHICH IS CERTAINLY SAYING SOMETHING.

YOU'RE NEXT - IT IS QUITE SIMPLY THE KIND OF HORROR MOVIE HULK ADORES. IT'S DARK WITHOUT BEING CYNICAL. HUMANE WITHOUT BEING ON THE NOSE. A BLAST WITHOUT BEING A JOKE. THEY JUST NAILED IT. AND MORE IMPORTANTLY THAN THAT, WHEN IT SLOWLY REVEALS WHERE THE INTERESTS OF ROOTING LIE, IT INSTANTLY BECOMES ONE OF THE MOST FUN HORROR MOVIES IN YEARS... THINK BLOODY HOME ALONE.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU HAVE THREE MOVIES LIKE THIS?

HULK'S ADVICE? SEE THEM ALL.

AFTER ALL, WHAT'S SO BAD ABOUT A GREAT WEEKEND AT THE MOVIES?

<3 HULK

UPDATE: THE SITUATION IS EVEN MORE DIRE! TURNS OUT THAT BLUE JASMINE IS EXPANDING AND AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS AND DRINKING BUDDIES ARE COMING OUT TOO. HULK HASN'T SEEN ANY OF THOSE THREE SO CONSIDER THAT BEING REMEDIED!
