Double Feature, Half the Price

I was having a shitty day.

It did not go as planned in any way, shape or form. My options for entertainment were limited, and it was hot.

The idea was thrown out there to go see a movie. I figured I’d go see Iron Man as I was meaning to see that anyway. The Incredible Hulk was mentioned as well.

So while looking them up I figured how I could scam the system and see both!

I went and saw the 7:05pm Iron Man and… infiltrated …the 9:20pm showing of The Incredible Hulk.

Iron Man, excellent movie. Robert Downey Jr. does a great job of portraying Tony Stark. It seems the arrogance needed to pull the role off came naturally to him. It is imperative that you stay all the way until the end of the credits as well, there’s a bit of an Easter Egg hidden there!

Now, having stayed until the absolute end (seriously, the other 15 people that were in the theater had left) this enabled me to casually walk out the door. And since none of the highly motivated teenage employees were around, I just strolled into the 9:20pm showing of The Incredible Hulk, which happened to be going through the now standard 10 minutes of commercials.

As for the Incredible Hulk, I liked it a lot. I never saw the Ang Lee version (due to the fact that I was told it was shit and from what little I saw made me believe that) so i could not compare the two unbiasedly. But this version is definitely good and worth seeing. Nods were given (as is standard in Comic book movies) to the necessary players; Bill Bixby (R.I.P.) was shown via a scene from an old TV movie he did, Lou Ferrigno played a security guard, and Stan Lee made his standard cameo. And the Easter Egg for this movie came at the end before the credits, so you don’t have to work so hard for it.

As for these Easter Eggs, let’s just say that there are three more movies that will tie together a final movie that is set to release in 2010. And if you’re paying attention, well, you’ll figure out what that movie will be! 😉
