Excited about The Avengers? Afraid it’s going to be crap? Don’t care, but love superheroes? Look no further than Marvel Month, where Alcohollywood reviews and creates drinking games for the five superhero movies of the characters soon to join forces in The Avengers!
This week, Marvel Month continues with the Edward Norton version of The Incredible Hulk! Completely stylistically divorced from the 2003 Ang Lee disaster, this movie replaces the often-obtuse but intriguing character explorations of the previous film the most straightforward, inoffensive comic book movie you could imagine. You may not end up reexamining your daddy issues, but you’ll have a fun, breezy ride, if that’s what you’re looking for. Co-starring a perpetually fish-lipped Liv Tyler and a CG-cartoon-muscled Tim Roth, The Incredible Hulk is by no means incredible, but it’s fairly entertaining. In the meantime, sit back, make yourself a couple of smoothies, and Hulk out to our review and drinking game!
