Picks tight up with Banner in S.America trying to find a cure.
"The Incredible Hulk" was a box-office bruiser, yanking in $54.5 million over opening weekend and laying to rest the stigma of his unappreciated big-screen adventure five years ago.

The new movie is not a sequel to 2003's "Hulk" but, in Marvel's terms, a reboot. Fans found the earlier movie too dark and brooding. CNN.com entertainment.

I saw the new Hulk.

Yeah, it does re-write the Eric Bana version. The rebooted story is basically covered in the opening credits, with Ed Norton testing himself and going green and freaking out and heading off to Brazil to avoid being used by the military.

It's a decent film, actually. I think fans of the comic will like it a lot more than the previous one.

As a huge comic book fan especial Marvel Comics I thought there was a lot in for the fans. From screen shots taken right from the TV show to creating two of the Hulks best villians.

AC, I think it was 2 things regards the Liberty-Head; I had seen that particular bit over & over on the adverts, so perhaps it lost it's shock value, and when I was watching the film with me mates, and it came rolling down, there was much scathing-ness about it's relative size to the people i.e. that the head was a lot smaller than it should have been.

The first 'oh my God' moment at the parasites dropping off the creature?

Maybe it's because I am the DON at Resident evil games and having played them to Death, to me the parasites dropping off just was not OMG for me, it was definitely an interesting moment, but It did not raise my pulse much honest!

The night-vision switch (if there ever was a shit-your-pants moment, that was it)?

again, the switch was good, but I thought hte 28 weeks later switch was better.

The race to the helicopter, (maybe you were too busy yawning to notice how absolutely spectacular that entire sequence was)? Not to mention Hud's final stand-off against the creature?
and the take off against the creature

LOL! we were a bit doobied-out by then, but it would be fair to say I wasn't yawning, but I just wasn't being thrilled by it.

I just watched the end again before writing this post, on it's own, the ending isn't too bad, but still in my opinion, you had to get through the rest of the film before you can get to the end, and it just wasn't for me. Grumble Grumble!

MSHL the Dharma thing was one of the limited good things about this film!

The Liberty Head is to scale. It really is that small. Like it or not, the dimensions were accurate.

BTW, you know at the very end of the film. . . I mean the very end, when it cuts back to the couple at the fair. . . There's a brief shot of the ocean and, just to the right of centre, something drops from the sky and makes a little splash in the ocean. . .

I didn't know that much about the Liberty Head until that night, and I believed them when they said it was actually a restaurant inside!

Ok so conceded with the size but not the shock!

I had to watch that bit about five times before I saw the thing hit the ocean!

We all missed that when we watched it, and I am sure so did many others! is that supposed to be the thing arriving? is that a set-up for follow on movies? I hope not! Very Happy

But cheers I am ashamed to say I did not spot it!

Dunno what it was. I missed all the online viral campaigning the film had before its launch - but from what I can gather since there was some issues about some company doing deep drilling in the ocean. And the thing that dropped in the ocean was potentially a satellite of some kind.

Maybe the deep drilling cracked open a fissure, something got out, and then the dropped satellite with some kind of weird microbes on it met with whatever came out of the fissure and created a mutation. . .

Or maybe it's nothing of the sort.

I did find it interesting on the DVD documentaries, however, that they considered the creature to be basically a panicking baby, only wreaking havoc the way it was because it was alone and scared and confused.

If that's the baby. . . Me no wanna meet his momma! And me definitely no wanna meet his papa!

S'OK.

I'd been waiting for an opportunity to use that Graphic.

Maybe we just need a Cloverfield thread... with a poll...

Did it suck?
or
Did it really, really suck?

OK, then... follow-up question:

What about Star Trek?

a) It will suck.
b) It can't suck, because Abrams knows the fans will castrate him.
c) Abrams knows the fans will castrate him, but it will still suck.
d) Everything we know about the upcoming Star Trek movie is a big lie anyway, right down to a fake cast list on IMdB, so the movie won't suck, and in fact it's actually about Janeway and the Voyager crew.

That's true... at worst, it'll be a trade. For every bit that's off canon, there will be amazing effects that will blow any previous Star Trek movie out of the water. Without a doubt, this will be the best Star Trek movie ever, in terms of movie-making... even if the story doesn't make sense.

I can't take full credit, I found the pic that already had the ears and eyebrows on Zachary Quinto.

Occam, what was that you posted? Here at work (where just about everything is blocked), there's just a big blank space in the middle of you message.
