HULK AND THE CINEMA OF EDGAR WRIGHT – A HISTORY

December 8, 2011

HULK AND THE CINEMA OF EDGAR WRIGHT HAVE A DECADE LONG RELATIONSHIP.

CRITICS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IMPARTIAL, BUT SOMETIMES THESE HISTORIES MATTER.

RECOLLECT IT ALL HERE…

  1. “THUS, THESE FILMS ARE SEAMLESS CREATIONS, FUNDAMENTALLY CONCERNED WITH BASIC HUMAN TRUTHS, BUT ALSO SERVING AS EVOLUTIONS AND COMMENTARIES UPON THEIR RESPECTIVE GENRES… AND THEY PULL IT OFF NO MATTER HOW MUCH RANGE THOSE GENRES MAY HAVE.

    AGAIN, HULK CAN’T REALLY THINK OF ANOTHER FILMMAKER WHO REALLY DOES THIS.”

    I think the Coen Brothers have been doing this recently, but not throughout their entire careers. Ang Lee, too, possibly. (We will ignore the giant misstep that was his attempt at an action movie in Hulk.)

    When will Hulk give us a comprehensive Storytelling 101 post? Teach me, Hulk!

  3. Excellent article! I lose so much time to your writings, but I gain a lot from an intellectual standpoint.

    Have you written at length about Scott Pilgrim before? My main criticism is the rapid pace… It’s very energetic, but I’d rather stop and get to know the characters more, etc. (much like the books). Just because you *can* squeeze so much into one movie doesn’t mean you should.

    Besides that, how about Envy Adams? She just sort of disappears, her storyline never to be resolved… Which is a shame since the parts she’s in (including her song) are so great.
