Do you know what's coming?
- (Found July 2, 2008 ) "Hancock" is a fantastic superhero movie despite never having had a comic book. Will Smith is great as the misguided hero while Jason Bateman and Charlize Theron make an excellent supporting cast. It has some hilarious comedy, some great action, and a few surprises that fortunately haven't been ruined by the commercials and trailers. But keep the kiddies at home this is a grown-up's comic book movie.
- (Found July 2, 2008 ) Like the show, this is an unrealistic fairy tale about how imaginary women in New York behave. Anyone who hasn't seen or doesn't like the show probably won't have very much interest in the movie, but those who love the show shouldn't be disappointed by the shenanigans their favorite ladies can get up to when given 135 more minutes of life.

- (Found July 2, 2008 ) Come for the big green monster, stay for Edward Norton, the great Marvel Comics cameos, and the Hulk TV show references. This is the Hulk movie that audiences thought they were getting in 2003. Score 2 for Marvel Studios!
- (Found July 2, 2008 ) "The Incredible Hulk" is a vast and noticeable improvement over Ang Lee's movie--at times on par with the first "Spider-Man" movie--but some of the original movie's problems are replaced by new ones, but none that completely ruin the enjoyment every time the Hulk comes out to "SMASH!!!"

- (Found July 2, 2008 ) "Get Smart" is a nice afternoon diversion. There are no big laughs to be had, no matter how hard it tries, but there are lots and lots of chuckles, and that's probably good enough.
- (Found July 2, 2008 ) As hard as it might be for "Wanted" to break away from the "Fight Club in the Matrix" comparisons bandied upon the comic, it's the highest compliment to say that "Wanted" is the R-rated action movie we've all been waiting for and Wesley Gibson is the hero we all want to be.
- (Found July 2, 2008 ) It's not often that you find 'post-apocalyptic' and 'delightful' going together in the same sentence, but they're essential to describe the deceptively artful new film from Pixar, where everything, even the ruined remains of Earth, is proven to be beautiful from the right perspective and optimism grows like a small little vine that refuses to die.
- (Found July 2, 2008 ) While one probably can't recommend either of these movies to anyone they even remotely liked, "War Inc." is only slightly better by the fact that it has some modicum of intelligence behind it, even if most of its clever ideas fall short due to the bad writing and awful performances across the board. "Postal" is almost worth watching because it's so unbelievably abysmal that you can't believe any filmmaker, let alone one as hated as Dr. Boll, would deliberately make light of such subjects in...
