THE COMPLETE FILM CRIT HULK ARCHIVE

May 30, 2012

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CLAMORING FOR A GOOD HULK-ARTICLE ARCHIVE.

AND RIGHTLY SO.

HULK KNOW THIS COULD BE EASILY REMEDIED BY REDOING THE SITE, BUT TO BE BLUNTLY HONEST, HULK DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO DO THAT RIGHT NOW (HULK BARELY HAS ENOUGH TIME TO BUY UN-HULKED SHIRTS). AND BETTER YET, HULK LIKES THE BY-SUBJECT FORMAT OF ORGANIZATION BELOW SO MUCH BETTER THAN CHRONOLOGICAL LISTING.

HULK WILL UPDATE EVER MONTH OR SO.

    I actually saved all of these word document and called it “The Lexicon,” along with other important film articles (GDT’s New Yorker profile, David Foster Wallace on Lost Highway, etc.)

    • Nick said

      Ha! I’ve done the exact same thing..
      What other articles have you compiled? I tend to include interviews with directors as well, Fincher, Spielberg etc

    Goldmine. Somebody needs to get all Doctorow up in here and start self-publishing e-books.

    Re: the issues of sound and why to go to the theater– I recently got to see a screening of Beasts of the Southern Wild in a theater with a great sound system, and that is definitely one to see in such a context. The sound is amazing.

  4. You’ve been busy, Hulk. Keep up the good work!

    It’s a shame the Bond series never continued, I went through the archives sometime back and was disappointed Hulk never shared his thoughts on On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Mainly because it’s my favourite Bond movie but I feel is often unfairly maligned.

      IT’S HULK’S FAVORITE TOO! SOMEDAY HULK PROMISE TO PICK UP THE SERIES. HOPEFULLY WHEN HULK LESS BUSY!
