The Incredible Hulk: It was one of the most spectacularly awesomely bad movies I’ve seen; at times, the whole audience was giggling and starting to make jokes.

When Sandman first appears with his power, I couldn’t help but lean over to Sam and stage-whisper “Ow… I’ve got grit in my eye.”

It was all downhill (er, uphill?) from there.
The Parker dance number was, um, the most spectacular moment of the whole movie.
Man, memo to Sam Raimi: no more movies by committee, okay?
I can’t rate it right now, ’cause I’m too tired, but I’ll write like, something about it tomorrow.
What an awesome night!

Incidentally, Curse of the Golden Flower is a great movie, and we get to see Chow Yun-Fat being all evil. It’s a lot slower than your typical martial arts movie, so if all you really want to see is ninjas kicking ass, you’ll probably have it skip the vast swathes of character and plot development that lay beautifully between the fight scenes. Excellent female characters, unbelievable sets, and Chow Yun-Fat: hoo, baby. Even old and grey and evil, he’s still a damn fine man.
