So, I saw the Hulk movie a while back and something's really starting to worry me about it.

I think it's a really good film, but it seems to me that they're advertising it the wrong way. The trailer is all action, and the film is anything but.
Don't get me wrong, the action in the film is great, but it takes up about 30 mins of a 2 hour 20 movie!

On top of all this, you get the obligatory Burger King meal, further encouraging kids to go and see the film, and I think all you're gonna get is a cinema full of very bored children.

Perhaps I've got it all wrong, but it just seems a bit off mark to me.

I shall give it a miss. I enjoyed The Hours, and About Schmidt, but the trailer of The Hulk film didn't really appeal to me. This week's offering in the original soundtrack (not dubbed) in Aschaffenburg was A Guy Thing, and I gave that a miss, too.

One film on offer each week isn't much, but it's better than nothing!

Thank you Barry Norman !! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Although I have not seen the film version of the Hulk, I have seen the adverts and movie trailers for it.
I was not impressed enough to go and see it.

As I am someone who watched and enjoyed the original TV series with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferringno, I can't get my head round this new animated Hulk he seems more like the cartoon version.

THe original Hulk was far better, the new one seems to be twice the size and can fly, talk etc
The original was a bit more (dare I say) realistic and believeable.

Or perhaps I am just an old f*rt !!

Getting back to the film itself

despite all I said about it and against my better judgement I went and Saw HULK (2003 Version) at the cinema last night
(Out on a school night!!)

I have to say I was disappointed with it, the effects were good but spoilt by the Cartoon like CGI Hulk.
I Found the flim took a while to get going and then after the initial discovery by Mr Banner that he could change into this Green Monster, I thought the film lost the plot a bit.

For those who have seen it what was all that arty farty stuff with split screens all about ?

Why did Hulk get bigger the more he got angry ? at one point he must have got to about 150 foot tall !

What the hec was that at the end with his father turning into somesort of electrical storm?

And Hulk Dog's .........please!!

Give me the old series from the late seventies/early eighties anyday.

.........Did see the trailers for Terminator 3 though and this really looks worth a watch.

Particularly if you are a fan of T1 & T2

It's a few years since I read the comics, but I seem to remember this being an important characteristic of The Incredible Hulk.

Thanks Colin
I never read the comic's, I only based that on my expirience of watching the TV series where the Hulk just got to one size.

I take that particular comment back then . <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

I guess you just stuck to Shakespeare, Milton, etc., or perhaps you also read some Austen, Hardy and Bronte?

Err No
More like Beano, Dandy, and Roy of the Rovers etc
and of course in later years Viz

Hmmm of course I am far more intellectual these days!! <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

In the comic, the hulk changed size often, although mostly this was to do with the artist's rendition rather than any affect of the gamma radiation.

I didn't mind the size change, he only grew to about 15 ft.

As a kid, one of the things that put me off the tv show was the fact that the Hulk was so weak compared to the comic, he had trouble lifting cars in the show, but could lift mountains in the comic. The film reflected this somewhat, he threw tanks around like toys and jumped for miles (he didn't fly as earlier pointed out, but jumped vast distances)

I do agree that the end was crap, as were the hulk dogs, but overall, I liked the film.

As for the split screen, I think it was Ang Lee's attempt at making the movie seem more comic like.


I also quite liked T3 by the way, although, again, I thought the ending lacked somewhat and there were several glaring errors in the plot (the giant magnet scene immediately springs to mind)

There are still some good movies to come out this summer, you MUST go see Pirates of the Carribean, it's the best blockbuster movie in ages! Bad Boys 2 and the league of extraordinary gentlemen were both good too, and I can't wait for Underworld. Vampires vs Werewolves and Kate Beckinsale in rubber, yum

Can't say any of them make me want to go to the flicks. I just can't wait for Lord of the Rings-The Return of the King.

My sister can also remember The Incredible Hulk growing bigger in the comics when he got angry. He also became even more inarticulate. I hope I don't have to search the loft for my comics to prove it!
