My Thoughts:
Now this is what the first Hulk movie should have been!
It stays more closely to the Hulk the general movie audience associate the Hulk with: The TV's Incredible Hulk with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno.
It pays a lot of homages to it. Beginning with the opening credit which serves to tell the origin story everybody is already familiar with, by using the opening of the TV show as a template. Then we have such references like the "Lone Man" music playing and the fall from a helicopter (reminicense to "The Death of the incredible Hulk").
Also this hulk has finally a more suitable size. It may be that in the comics he is much bigger, but here they go a good middle ground between a really big Hulk and the Lou Ferrigno's Hulk. Okay, this is also a Lou Ferrigno Hulk because he provides the voice for him. I think it's a nice touch.

Metro, a review by addicted2dvd



Metro
Mega-star Eddie Murphy (The Nutty Professor, Beverly Hills Cop series) teams with Michael Rapaport (Beautiful Girls) and Michael Wincott (The Crow) in this wildly entertaining, action-packed hit! Murphy plays Scott Roper, a fast-talking, wisecracking, on-the-edge hostage negotiator whose offbeat-but-winning style has made him San Francisco's top mediator! Roper will say...and do...absolutely anything to get his man. But when it comes to face to face with a psychotic killer who's playing a lethal game of cat and mouse, he's finally met his match! Don't miss the excitement as the always amusing Murphy packs Metro with outrageous action that has critics and audiences cheering!

My Thoughts:
This is another movie I have had in my collection for a very long time... but it seems I have only watched the one time. I wouldn't say this is the best Action-Comedy I ever seen... but it is definitely enjoyable. I liked most the characters... there was lots of fun scenes... but I think there could have been a bit more comedy in the mixture for this one.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

"Due South" marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Chinatown

Once again another episode I enjoyed quite a bit. I liked the fact that the female cop that has a thing for Fraser have a bit of a bigger part in this episode. And I had to chuckle at the wolf being mad a Fraser as well.
