    Do you think people are going back and watching/appreciating "HULK"?

    Nope, it will more less be seen as a bloated hiccup in his career. I doubt he's that fond of it either seeing as to how he nearly stopped directing over it. I think he took the negative and mixed responses quite personally.

    as much as i would like to see Ang's take on Abomination, i doubt it. Just get Alex Proyas and they'll be fine

    I at least think that people are now willing to give Hulk another chance. Whenever i watch a movie i enjoy, i always look who the director is, and if i havent seen any of his/her previous movies, i look out for them. I'm sure there are many more people like that in the world. I think (and hope) that more people will now give it another chance, and i think some will.

    Ang Lee is popular again, because he made an extremely hyped up film that is going to be behind The Pacefier in terms of gross?

    If they are watching Broke back they won't care about the Hulk. He'd better stay far away from the sequel to the Hulk, and I've heard he won't be doing it, I'm sure Marvel and Universal know he screwed up the first big time. I'm so tired of people making excuses for that moron. He ruined the Hulk movie Nuff said. That was not how the Hulk should've been done. Some long drawn out boring crap.

    please shut the f**k up... if you knew anything thing, you'd know he came in after the script was done, you'd know that Universal didnt let him do most of the things he wanted, you'd know the final film we got was a mix of Universal wanting a film like spidey and Angs' Hulk.

    I think Hulk could be made better with a re-edit, but I think that every hero must have an equal antagonist and that is why Hulk suffered.

    Well many people here like the way the movie turned out, i'd take Hulk over FF any day. I'd rather have something long and drawn out instead of a quick happy slap popcorn movie.

    I'm actually quoting you to comment on your sig, but I'll say I hate the Hulk movie...

    Anyway, the line from firefly... I can't remember what movie it's from or even who says it but someone beats up someone and the one guy says "I thought you were just gonna scare him" and the other one says "he looked scared to me". Firefly STOLE that ****! I wish I could remember what movie it's from.

    I think that Ang Lee's HULK will be viewed as Joel Schumaker's BATMAN & ROBIN. While the two movies are incomparable on a level of quality or film making, they will both be viewed as mistakes or blunders by respected directors. Much like playing Batman, Catwoman, and Terl are just viewed as blunders for respected actors George Clooney, Halle Berry, and John Travolta.

    There was a variation of the line in Robocop 2, when Cain killed that fat cop guy, is that what your talking about?

    Comparing those two movies are like apples and oranges. Ang Lee is a gifted director. Schumacher is hit and miss.

    When exactly? Hulk was released three years ago and that hasn't happened.

    Put me in the camp that would hate to see Ang Lee anywhere near a super-hero movie ever again. For whatever reason...The Hulk was horrid. (Yes...that's right...I said "THE" Hulk....not "Hulk".)

    If Ang had nothing to do with the Hulk not talking again....with choosing Nick Nolte to screw up every scene he was in....with making the Hulk grow so ridiculously large by the end of the movie that he looked like Mighty Joe Young...then I'll forgive him.

    I would like to see one director get the fact that the Hulk can talk. He is NOT a mute.

    I will admit that I rooted against Brokeback at the Oscars just because Ang screwed up the Hulk.

    Hulk did talk, and he talked when he needed to .. what the f**k was he going to say when he was getting chased by Helicopters and Mutant Dogs?... He was never in the position to talk himself out of anything, you think Talbot would have listened when he was trying to drill a hole in Hulk's face?... you think Ross would has stopped if Hulk had said anything?... Nick Nolte did over act, thats true, but then again he is playing and mentally screwed up character, maybe thats what he was trying to show.

    He talked in a dream. Two words...wow.

    How about "Leave me/Hulk alone!" or "Get away from me/Hulk or I/Hulk will smash you!!"?

    Perhaps he could have had something to say to Betty instead of staring at her with a sad look on his face.....like a mute would? Crack open a Hulk comic for clues as to when the Hulk has things on his mind he wants to say. He doesn't act like someone super-glued his lips together, that's for sure.

    And I believe I've seen more than one action movie where they manage to have the hero say something in action scenes. Are you saying Bruce Willis should have not talked during Die Hard? Heck...even Arnold had lines in Terminator and Conan. And we can't have the Hulk say something?

    That TV show truly was the worst thing that could have happened to the Hulk.

    I think Nolte was trying to show how painfully bad an actor can look in a role. Gotta give him credit...he pulled it off.

    do you realize that the lines you just said that Huk should say sounds ******ed, really, i hate the way Hulk talks in the comics sometimes. to have the hero say stupid one liners and the end of some action scene is crap, its old. Hulk didnt have a sad look in his face when he was with Betty, go watch the scene again, he was happy. You cant compare Hulk to guys from Die Hard and Terminator. Hulk was fighting with machines and animals in the movie, what the hell was he going to say without sounding stupid?...
