Anyone else concerned that the transformations will be like the 70's Hulk show?

    I kinda am. Sure, it'd be a nice throwback.

    But it will look corny. I just hope the transformations are dark and painful looking, yet badass.

    Yes. I'm concerned it'll be completely awesome.

    The transformation will be cool. I don't know why people ask such dumb questions. They know they are making a big budget Hulk movie and need to fix what they screwed up before.

    It'll be cool.

    Of course it'll look good. I'm saying what if they add the high pitched music and the close up of his eye?

    If the movies can't base this more directly on its original content, then what does it say about the source product?

    In spite of its cheper elements - the clothes ríp-off closes and stuff - there´s an element of the TV show´s transformation I REALLY love when you suddenly see Banner´s eyes change and they move in that freakish frantic way, it´s a lot creepier and more effective than any of the transformations in the Ang Lee movie IMO.

    I agree with this. I think it had to do more with Bixby's acting ability than anything else. In particular the pilot episode, that first Hulk-out was extremely well done. Once that tire finished pissing him off, that scream was priceless. The buildup and tension were the things the TV show did well that I think the first movie got away from a little bit. If they can bring that element back, I'll sure be happy about it...

    Completely agree. I like the idea of this movie borrowing some elements from the show, and the transformations were one of the strong elements. If we can get the white eyes and some cool sound effects, I"ll be happy enough.

    In Ang's film, you got Bana moving alot, hunched over, smacking the floor, walking around, screaming with an angry face...

    In the TV series, all it had, & all it needed, were his eyes going white, the music, his facial expression being more surprized than pissed off, & him hardly moving at all... In just that brief period, you feel he's really struggling, more so than Bana walking around gradually growing & smashing stuff... I wouldn't want the transformations to be exactly like the TV show, with the close ups of his arm, then his chest, then his foot, ripping through his clothes... But I'd like it to have just that moment, when he's totally lost it, & it closes up on his face, & bamn! You know whats coming... I found that terrifying when I was a kid, & the hulk is supposed to b terrifying...

    Plus they would pitch down Bixby's voice if he happened to say something during the transformation. That was always great.

    If they did throw that in, at least with the first transformation, I think a scene like that could send chills up a lot of the older movie goers spines.

    Not that I think it'll be anything like the 70's transformation, because that would've been bad. Just bad.

    Two transformations from the TV Show I like a lot are; when Banner transforms whilst changing the tyre in the Pilot, that was really cool. I think the rain added a lot to the transformation to make it look more scary and such.

    The second one is in the episode when Banner meets that other scrawny Hulk guy. Right at the end when Banner has a cure but that evil Hulk destroys it and you have Banner crying and in pain whilst transforming, you really felt sympathy for Banner then. One thing Ang got wrong in his movie as you didn't really feel his pain or nothing in the movie apart from the first transformation maybe.

    It is the Banner aspect I think they are going to use from the TV Show, not the Hulk side of the story. And I think they are only gonna use the white eyes for the transformations from the TV Show.

    Woah, you guys have to be careful...all these positive comments are sure to break the Internet.

    Don't you know that what you're supposed to do is damn to hell any and everything that has to do with the TV series and decide months in advance that the movie will completely suck?

    And you call yourselves comic book fans.

    :woot:

    I agree. I am thrilled that the transformations will be like the 70's Hulk show.

    Don't worry about it. It will look cool. It's not as if the transformation is a difficult effect to pull off nowadays. If anything you'll get the white-eyes and the shirt-rip as an homage, but the rest'll be awsome.
    Get ready, we're gonna have a good time.
