Default Re: The Official 'I Still Love Ang Lee's Hulk' Thread - Part 1

Why is there a "page 4" button when there're only 3 pages?

When I first heard about the movie, I was thrilled, really looked forward to it, I love the Hulk and was really excited for the news. Seeing it in theater the first time I hated it, don't remember anything I initially liked about it other than being a Hulk movie. Hearing about a reboot starring Edward Norton was a thrill, when I saw the reboot I was so happy I saw a Hulk movie I loved and had fun watching, TIH still is my favorite Marvel movie

Viewed the Ang Lee movie a few times in this year, and it grew on me, it's one of those movies I came to appreciate more as I grew older, and even more as I delve more into Hulk's comics, Peter David's run in particular. If there is anything I disliked then and still dislike about the movie it is "The Madder Hulk Gets, the Larger He Becomes", not a fan of this size shift

David Banner is a blend of two characters, the father Brian Banner with his "I made you a monster, I have to kill you" motif, then being taking away, and Banner working under Ross for the military before Bruce grows. And then with his beard and the "They take everything from you" motif I find Maestro persona adapted. I like the depth shown in Hulk seeing him after Bruce hulks out his first time, then remembers as David holds his face, that short moment said enough about Hulk in his first time out

When Hulk was in the foam, and Glenn wanted to cut him and take a sample, Hulk anger enlarging him had a focus on his eye, it was designed as a Herb Trimpe drawn panel

Wow, what a blast from the past this thread is!

And yeah Spider-Aziz, I have been saying this for years but Hulk seems to be benefitting greatly from age and re-watches, I remember loving it when I first saw it anyway, but then when I got the DVD I couldnt stop watching the movie, it just grew and grew on me, and even now I still try and watch it at least once a year.

I'm just here to say that this movie is still high up on my list. Of course the awesomeness of Avengers and TDKR may push it out of my top 5, but it's still in the elite comic movie category of my favorites.

I think Ang Lee did a terrific comic book film. It has drama, the casting as well as the acting performances are really good, it has an interesting story, it has a few great action sequences (hey, a film doesn't have to be packed with action to be good, right?).
Overall, the first Hulk film is quite serious. This really suits the character. Hulk isn't supposed to be a fun adventure, does he?

I also like the second film. The Incredible Hulk is a serious film too, but is has got more action as well. The darker elements that are within the two adaptions, makes Hulk a much better cinema character than Fantastic Four. But things can change when we get a F4 reboot that makes the characters justice. They need a more mature approach. Just sayin'

Not sure that is actually true. It has more Hulk vs. supervillain action, though.

Its kind of a toss up, in my mind: well done action versus a boring supervillain, or poorly done action versus a good supervillain.

It always baffles me when TIH fans act like it was a giant success and Hulk was a giant failure. Two films with virtually the same box office gross and critical reaction, yet everyone turns a blind eye to TIH's failure or just blames it on Hulk.

A highly contestable point. Hulk 2004 had great flaws, but it also had great virtues.

Yeah, of the two Ang's was definately the more humane Hulk and you could easily tell what his Hulk was feeling in any given moment. I actually didnt mind Hulk having few lines in Ang's movie because his facial expressions told us what he was feeling anyway.

Damn, its been a while, will have to watch this movie again soon.

Same here, if Ang's Hulk effected anything with tIH (which I dont think it did) it would have been the opening weekend, if TIH was so good, WOM would have propelled it to better BO after returns after that, it didnt, hence the movie simply wasnt that good to have the masses telling others to go and see it.

VERY contestable, for me, though I like both, Hulk is the much better movie.

Man, I missed the 10th anniversary for this movie by a month. Wanted to resurface this thread at a more fitting time
Oh how time flies, and how I think I'm going to watch the movie celebrating it turning a month over 10 years

It has been 10 years. I didn't realize that. I still love it just like when I first saw it. It's crazy this came out the same summer that I graduated high school. It doesn't feel like a blink, but it happened pretty fast. I have the DVD, but I thought about getting the steelbook blu-ray just because it looks cool as hell. If they came out with a 10th anniversary blu-ray I'd be on it.

You know what I find amusing? Ang Lee's film had Gen. Ross destroy a deserted military town without harming civilians. The Avenger's Fury didn't want to nuke Manhattan.

But the Man of Steel film has the U.S. military bomb Smallville while it was still populated.

Who's got the better military leaders, eh?

Hulk was one of the first movies I re-bought when I got a blu-ray player, it looks amazing on BD and I still love the hell out of it.

I've been thinking about picking up the steelbook, but haven't because I already own the Bluray. Is there anything new on it worth double dipping?

They used bullets in Man of Steel
Fury told his leaders not to nuke the city, they went ahead and did it

And they failed with the nuke, thanks to the Avengers and Nick Fury. They have the better military leaders.

That nuke is one of two reasons I think Iron Man is the star of that film, the other is him stopping the hellicarrier from falling after Loki's minions attack

Watching the movie right now, and for the first time I'm wondering what happened to Mrs. Krenzler? Why did they not show more of her? Is there an extended release with more on her?

I don't think she was that important to the story, other than being someone for the audience to think was Bruce's mother. To add weight to the whole "repressed memories" thing.
