HULK ASKS A FAVOR – GO SEE ATTACK THE BLOCK

July 28, 2011

SO HERE GOES.

HULK GOING ASK A FAVOR. HULK KNOW IT AN IMPOSITION, AND MAYBE EVEN PRESUMPTUOUS, BUT HULK NOT ASK FOR MUCH. TO BE HONEST, THE MERE FACT THAT SO MANY PEOPLE READ HULK’S BLOG MAKE HULK FEEL ALL WARM INSIDE, SO YOU CERTAINLY DO NOT OWE HULK ANYTHING BY ANY MEANS… BUT HULK GUESS THAT WHY IT A FAVOR.

HULK GOING ASK THAT, IF AVAILABLE IN YOUR CITY, YOU GO SEE ATTACK THE BLOCK THIS WEEKEND.

HULK ALREADY REVIEWED FILM AND HULK THINK IT A MASTERPIECE. (CAREFUL THOUGH, IT GET A BIT SPOILERY DOWN THE WAY).

CALLING  A FILM A MASTERPIECE DEFINITELY SETTING UP SOME UNFAIR EXPECTATIONS AND HULK WOULD TOTALLY UNDERSTAND IF YOU NO THINK IT A MASTERPIECE. WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT THINGS WE VALUE + RESPOND TO WITH MOVIES AND HULK HAPPEN TO VALUE TRANSCENDENT GENRE FARE. SOME DON’T. THAT FINE.

BUT YOU WILL STILL LIKE THE MOVIE. THAT FOR SURE.

IT WILL NOT BE LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE YOU’VE SEEN.

IT WILL BE DIFFERENT.

AND IT WILL BE GOOD.

AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, YOU WILL SEE THE SAME THINGS IN THE MOVIE THAT HULK DID. A WONDERFUL FILM THAT SEAMLESSLY BLEND GREAT STORYTELLING, OUTRIGHT HILARITY, SOCIAL COMMENTARY, AND HORROR. EVEN THE SCORE AMAZING. THE FILM FIRE ON ALL CYLINDERS. AND MAYBE YOU’LL AGREE.

HULK KNOW COWBOYS AND ALIENS OUT THIS WEEK AS WELL AND HULK KNOW THAT “THE BIG HOLLYWOOD MOVIE WE ALL SUPPOSED TO SEE!” LOOK, HULK LOVE IRON MAN JUST AS MUCH ANYONE. HULK WANT SEE INVESTED HARRISON FORD TOO.

BUT HULK ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE THAT MOVIE WILL NO BE AS GOOD.

AND IF IT SUPER-IMPORTANT TO YOU TO SEE COWBOYS, THEN HULK URGE YOU TO SEE BOTH FILMS. HULK KNOW MOVIES COST A LOT OF MONEY. HULK KNOW IT BIG TIME COMMITTMENT. HULK TRULY KNOW. BUT HULK GOING TO DO IT AND HULK ALREADY SEEN ATTACK THE BLOCK. BUT HOW OFTEN GET CHANCE HAVE TRULY GOOD “MOVIE WEEKEND”? BESIDES IT, FOR LACK OF BETTER WORD, “IMPORTANT” TO SEEK OUT THE MOVIES THAT HARDER TO FIND. RIGHT? IF WE SUPPOSEDLY CARE ABOUT GETTING GOOD MOVIES IN OUR LIVES, IT VERY IMPORTANT.

SO HULK KNOW IT ASKING LOT.

HULK ASSURE YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN THIS MOVIE BEYOND THE FACT HULK THINK IT GREAT AND WANT SHARE IT.

THAT WHY HULK ASKING FOR A FAVOR.

CHEERS,

❤ THE INCREDIBLE F-IN’ HULK

      That’s my problem also. It isn’t showing anywhere near me as in the cultural wasteland I inhabit Real Steel is arthouse.

      I’m a big fan of Joe Cornish and of course Edgar Wright and Nick Frost but I doubt I will get to see Attack the Block any time soon.

      Bugger.

    Hey, Hulk…ATB was phenomenal. One of the best film I’ve seen in a long time, and my friends agree.

    Amazingly efficient storytelling/screenplay and great characterization. Halfway through the film I was slighting it for the fact that I still didn’t really like most of the protagonists, but then realized there was a situational sincerity to it and that it was kind of brilliant.

    Super 8 isn’t in the same league. This is a great film.

      HULK GLAD YOU LIKED!

      AND YEAH THE INITIAL, DISTANT TREATMENT OF THE KIDS TOTALLY ON PURPOSE. AT FIRST THEY’RE ALL MASKED/SIMILAR LOOKING/POSTURING (LIKE WHAT SOCIETY THINKS OF THEM). THEY PROJECT THE AIR OF TOUGHNESS AND THEN THEY START TO LITERALLY PEEL BACK THE LAYERS (LITERALLY MEANING THEIR CLOTHES) AND YOU GET TO SEE WHO THEY ARE. IT STARTS WITH THE SCENE IN NICK FROSTS APARTMENT, THEN THE QUICK LITTLE BITS WHERE THEY STOP BY THEIR OWN APARTMENTS, THEN BY THE END THEY ARE COMPLETE AND TOTAL HUMAN BEINGS. SPECIFICALLY MOSES, WHO IS REALLY THIS TRULY DAMAGED ALPHA MALE KID WHO EQUALLY CAPABLE OF GOOD AND BAD.

      HULK COULD REALLY WRITE A WHOLE PAPER ON THE SOCIOLOGICAL THEMES OF ATTACK THE BLOCK.

  3. My brother and I have been in a tizzy over ATB since before Hulk reviewed it. The trailer and the pedigree are both pretty outstanding. Then your positive review just added fuel to the flames. amazingly, even though i live in a city of over one million people, it isn’t playing here. is this thing a limitef release or something? i would think distributers would recognize its box office potential.

    I saw ATB due in no small part to your hype, Hulk. Thanks! Total pleasure and so obviously not a result of two years’ suit monkey studio development.

  5. DJM said

    Wow, just, wow. I read one of your other ATB posts and went and immediately bought it on Amazon Instant Video.

    You’re right, its a masterpiece. Even when I expected there would be an attack or an alien hitting the dumpster or something, the pacing STILL managed to hit it so I jumped out of my skin as they dropped it in just the right place. Amazing.

    Best thing I’ve seen in a long time, worth the $10 for sure, and tomorrow or asap I’ll have to watch it again on the big flat screen in the living room (had to watch it on the laptop due to child-rearing related constraints).

    You were right in the other piece about the music, it was wonderful and completely carried the action along.
