    Midnight showing last night.

    I loved the casting, Hurt did a great job, Liv Tyler was a great Betty, and Norton was a perfect Banner. Doc Samson I'm still a little iffy on, but Tim Blake Nelson for Samuel Sterns was genius.

    Also, they had all these throw-backs to the show, as well as the obligatory Ferrigno/Stan Lee cameos. They played the Lonely Man song, the green eyes when he's changing, it was all very reminiscent of the TV show which I loved.

    I really, really enjoyed it. It was everything a Hulk movie should be. Lot's of action and good geek-out moments. I liked it better than Iron Man as well.

    +1 for Hulk > Iron Man

    Iron Man is full of fancy gadgets and whatnots but Hulk is just full of smashing :bowdown:

    I liked it....up to the point where Betty Ross told him to Stop. :wtf: Why would that dumb bitch tell him to stop; and hes still alive and breathing when Hulk ran away, who knew what the abomination will do after that.

    I think it was an easy way for them to keep the Abomination alive while still having a brutal fight. Fuck I want to go watch it again.

    Just got back a little while ago- very cool movie. The Stark cameo was a nice touch as well.

    Im pretty sure it was the right decision to cut it. The movie dragged a bit in the theater version....I hate to see an extra 30 minutes of it, let alone 70 minutes.

    But of course everyone will disagree because Norton is a god, blah blah blah.

    It would have been an additional 20-30 minutes, not 70. They pushed for a 2h 15min cut and afaik the movie was just under 2 hours.

    And yea, Norton = God, so it probably would have been awesome.

    I thought it was a nice yin (smash) and Iron Man's yang (thought provoking).

    Loved it. Not quite Iron Man, but fuck... a damn good summer for comic book movies.

    Tim Blake Nelson as Samuel Sterns was a great casting job... I just loved how he was a mad scientist, but entirely nerdy.
