Anyone else looking forward to seeing this movie? My boys and I got some free tickets to see this on a 11:30pm screening on Thursday this week. So I am definitely excited.

I never touched a Hulk comic when I was younger and dont know much about the whole story but some of the latest previews have looked tight.

Also all of the reviews so far are saying it is definitely worth seeing on the silver screen.

I heard that the CGI Hulk wont even show up until about 40 minutes into the movie, but I guess when he does, he rips **** up!

I just hope this movie doesnt totally ruin all the other comic book characters like it did with the X Men and especially Spiderman. WTF was that movie all about?! Good lord

Yeah I am, at 1st it looked like a crap movie, but apparently it's heavily character and plot based. From what I understand you don't really start to see any CGI stuff until like an hour has passed in the movie.

Dude, you though Spider Man was good?! HOly $hit that was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Right up there with Pearl Harbor.

Spider Man was pretty cool, Pearl Harbor was ok for the battle scenes but the rest of it was terrible. They involved the romance crap too much into the story. Hollywood always has to do that. I'd like to see 'em do a remake of the 'The Bridge on the River Kwai' and try that. They'd have a 'P.O.W. - Japanese nurse' love triangle goin' or something.....:rolleyes:

Spider man rocked... oh well no accounting for taste I guess.

I do agree on Pearle Harbor though. Allthough the actual attack sceenes were incredable and as an ex-squid myself some of that hit a little close to home (drowning sceenes do that to us) at least we know that they can still make a good war movie nowadays without the extra romance crap thrown in as evidenced by the masterpiece that was Blackhawk Down.

Oh, and as for the topic of the thread.. yeah, I'll likely go see the Hulk, but I'll wait untill I get a chance to read the Hollywood.com review, me and the guy that does the reviews on there have a tendancy to agree 90% of the time so I usually take them at face value as all he cares about is was it an entertaining movie.

So you have not read many Spiderman comics have you. They were as full of "romance crap" just like the movie was as well as the X-Men. Hell in the comics Jean Gray went from Cyclops to Wolervine and back again and again. Both movies were pretty much true to the comic books.

-Pearl harbor did have a crappy plot. I mean the guy goes on a train in NYC to go to England? WTF?

-I didn't like Blackhawk Down, JMO but Michael J Durant said it was inaccurate.

-I'm definitely seeing the Hulk but Spider-man was only so-so. They should have casted him better.

Then you're not much of a Spider-man fan bro. I grew up reading the webslinger, and for the most part, the movie was dead-on accurate, right down to the smoke trails off the Goblin's glider.

X-Men was excellent also. Have you read any of these comics??

They cast him perfect. They were going by the original Spider-man, and Peter Parker was a total geek. Toby was perfect for the role.

Oh, I liked the comics of Spiderman and Xmen when I was younger growing up, but the movies just seemed soooo ****ing cheesy. I mean the dialogue between Tobey who might be the most annoying actor in the world and Dafoe were so embarrassing to watch.

Did you guys honestly like the Green Goblin's costume?! God Lord, it looked like it was right out of a Power Rangers movie!

I would of liked to see Matt Damon play Spiderman. He can play a complete nerd (Talented Mr Ripley) and also play a badass (Good WIll Hunting, Bourne Identity). Willam Dafoe was great, but man did that costume suck!!!!

I hope they include Venom or Carnage in one of the sequels. The Spiderman comics that featured them were my favorites.

I absolutely hated Xmen the movie. There were thousands of ways to make those Xmen movies better. Add sentinels damn it!
The two Xmen movies should have been straight to the video store or straight to TV movies...they had no business being on the silver screen.

But to each his own...

Matt Damon as Spiderman would have been a travesty that would have ripped the very fabric of time and caused the end of all life as we know it.

As for Goblin's costume, they made it a little more modern, yes....but when it comes to a man flying around on a mechanical bat throwing pumpkin bombs at people, his costume being cheesy or not is kind of a moot point, no? ;)

I watched the cartoon all the time when I was younger and he might have been very smart even nerdy but he wasn't a sissy who couldn't act. The GG's costume was bad;it looked like a green Iron Man. Some of the dialogue was bad and unnecessary. The GG trying to convince Spider-man to join him? WTF? And I'll never forget the scene of people throwing garbage at GG and GG standing there and taking it. Why didn't he throw a bomb at them? Anyways, that's JMO. This is getting :topic:

Agree about Damon.. I mean.. okay, Ben Afflek was able to pull off Daredevil (I was plesently suprised) but Damon playing Spiderman?

Excuse my while I go vomit on a copy The Talented Mr Ripley.

I thought the X-Men movies and the Spider-Man movie were great. You have to give and take when it comes to appealing to a wide audience, they weren't making the movies for one person. The appeal of Spider-Man is that he is a regualr person/nerd in high school that gains the ability to be "Amazing" but has to deal w/ the responsibility that the power brings--- remember the mantra "with great power comes great responsibility." I think Tobey McGuire (sp) fits the nerd part fine. There was a time where Marvel movies were just plain crap--The Punisher (better version coming soon) Captain America, Fantastic Four (never made the big screen, thank God.) But now they've got movies that are bringing in the bucks--starting w/ the Blade movies, X-Men movies, Spidey movie(s) DareDevil, and the list continues. I'll go see the Hulk, one of my favorite characters since a young age. I think the CGI beefs peeps will have, will be different w/ a big screen treatment though.

I saw some of it and it was lousy. Didn't resemble the actual hero/vigilante.

www.superherohype.com is a good site for superhero movies/TV.

Warning: Some spoilers.

I thoroughly enjoyed Hulk. It was a good balance between Greek Tragedy and action movie. Sam Elliot and Nick Nolte gave very good performances and, as expected, Jennifer Connelly was HOT!!! :tongue: Plot, drama, good acting & directing were all found in this movie along with a surprise supervillain. The transactions from scene to scene were annoying at first but I began to like them. The movie played like a live action comic. A rare summer movie living up to it's hype. Overall, I'd say this is possibly the best super-hero movie ever bar none.
