Who reads FILM CRIT HULK?


Recommended Posts

I have been reading this guy who calls himself FILM CRIT HULK. He writes "Hulk"-sized essays in all caps, and he gives some of the most thoughtful film commentary, so much so that I learned many things, like why Michael Bay really sucks (hint: it's not because he has a lot of action in his films), what makes the Bond films so interesting, and other stuff

Anand, 

 

FWIW, you can find some discussion of Film Critic Hulk in a couple of past threads. Ones I know of include the Les Misérables (2012) thread and the Man of Steel (2013) thread


My own feeling is, as much as FCH obviously knows about cinema, the Hulk persona doesn't work more often than it does. Perhaps the schtick would work better if most of the essay were written by Film Critic Banner, with FCH only sometimes erupting into the piece.

Oh, that's brilliant.
