Will Hancock deliver?

I am wary about the action/scifi film Hancock because there is this The Incredibles vibe to it (albeit of the grittier variety). But that won't stop me from seeing it, since I am a fan of any film/TV show/comics that deal with superheroes. Here's the trailer of the upcoming movie.

Hancock is scheduled for release on July 2, 2008.

The Incredible Hulk is back!

I can't wait to watch The Incredible Hulk. I'm a big fan of the comics, especially World War Hulk series. The previous Hulk movie (featuring Eric Bana) was a fluke. I am fairly confident that Edward Norton will be more effective in portraying the scrawny Bruce Banner. Too bad I won't be able to watch this right now.

The Incredible Hulk opens today. Click here for the movie's official website.

Movie Review: Kung Fu Panda

During the past two years, I have been shunning animated movies (particluarly, of the 3D variety) because it feels like the new ones do not provide anything new to the table.

Good thing, the animated movie Kung Fu Panda does not disappoint.

The movie is about Po the Panda, who dreams to be one of the great kung fu masters. He was picked by the head kung fu master as the dragon master (the chosen one, so to speak) to fight their village's greatest enemy. Other kung fu greats bristled at the idea, since Panda had no kung fu skills whatsoever.

The movie has awesome graphics from start to finish. The plot is solid, and the there is light humor throughout the film. The voice actors (led by Jack Black) did a superb job in giving life to the animated characters. Over-all, it is such a good film that you will forget that you are watching an animated movie.

Needles to say, Kung Fu Panda is a must-see summer movie.
