I may break down and see the Hulk too but Ed Norton is far from my favorite person. I don't really like watching him although I think Tim Roth is amazing.
Well Andrew, M. Night`s last movie I did not like. However, From what my sources have said, I`m willing to give The Happening a shot. As far as the Hulk goes, I was wondering why the guys at Marvel Comics made another Hulk in the first place. Its not like its the Hulk II, or a sequel. Though from what I have been told, it supposedly starts from where the first Hulk left off.

But to me, it seems like an indictment to the first film. Like, it was not that good, so lets make another. I agree though, that the first actor should have been given a shot to play the Hulk again. He played Hector in "Troy."

It did pick-up from where the other left-off. I thought of the first movie as more character building than anything else. This new one had a plot and a real bad guy for the Hulk to fight. I liked it much better.

I skipped Indiana Jones and Hulk but Iron Man was great. The Happening was to be my other summer film but I guess I'll skip it. Care to comment...
Just saw it. It was as bad as the reviews said. Save your money on this one.

Andrew,
Why don't you like Edward Norton?
He is one reason why I would see The Hulk. I think the actor, producer, director, screenwriter is very talented -- twice nominated for Academy Awards, Golden Globe winner, as well as winner of many film critic association awards, etc. He also seems perfectly cast as Dr. Bruce Banner. JMHO
Tim Roth was good in Rob Roy, though I can't think of a single other memorable performance.

I hear you. I`ve heard nothing but good things about the Hulk, and you just confirmed what I heard about it picking up from the first one.
But, I was told who showed up at the end of the movie!! That is amazing!!
Will that spoil the movie for me though??
