Geez, can't we even mention "Hulk + Ang Lee" anymore? Always this tired "I hate it! vs But I like it!" debate.. Let´s all just face the facts here; "Hulk" is a MOVIE. And with movies, there are differing opinions.. Live and let live!
That's a bit like praising the fastest three legged horse.
Neither is perfect, but I will at least agree that the Ang Lee film is not nearly as bad as one might think from all of the badmouthing it has gotten. I was on board with it right through to the "final confrontation", which was incredibly anticlimactic. I will stand pat with my HD DVD, but it is good to see it arriving on BD with at least an upgrade to lossless audio.
I thought it was kinda funny that the new hulk movie failed to do better then the first movie with all of its talk of being a better movie.. maybe people are just not fans of the big green guy of either version. I did get a chance to meet the original hulk at a convention. Lou F. that was cool. Jacob
To be fair, though, if you were able to factor in the people who didn't see the 2008 version specifically because they felt burned by the Ang Lee version, the 2008 version had the potential to gather considerably more box office.
That's kinda stretching it in my opinion. It could just as easily be that there are way too many comic book movies being produced these days. When even a lover of comic book movies, like myself, says this it might be time to start mining some new medium for film ideas.
