Default Re: TIH vs. Ang Lee's Hulk

One would assume any Hulk fan's check list would have Hulk being portrayed as an actual character high up on it as well as both Banner and Hulk relating to/hating each other. IMO, both films failed to do that very important thing and I'd go so far as to say that's the single biggest obstacle to these movies being successful with the G/A so far. Other superheroes are still characters even when they put their tights on. But so far with Hulk(in live action) the moment Bruce changes then the character goes into limbo and all we have is an FX/action scene. And no body language BS will ever be able to adequately replace dialog from the Hulk(and 5-6 spoken words throughout the film just comes off as an insult to the character and not even close enough to really count).

Much as messing with the 616 origin irritated me, THIS is what really always got my goat.

2018 Movies so far:
1. Incredibles 2 (A)/2. Avengers: Infinity War (A)/3. Chappaquiddick (A-)/4. Ready Player One (B+/A-)/5. Upgrade (B+)/6. DeadPool 2 (B+)/7. Black Panther (B+)/8. Rampage (C+)
