The Return of the Return

posted by on August 1 at 13:30 PM

The box office for the second Hulk, $132,742,865, finally passed the box office for the first and better one, $132,177,234. How I hate Ed Norton.

And that's, hmmm, that's a 538475382389286% higher gross than any film you will ever make.

considering the value of the dollar has been in steady decline over the past year or so, i'm pretty sure if you adjusted those figures for inflation, the first one has a higher box office yield.

Did you ever see Fight Club? Are you high or something? Edward Norton rules, I'm deleting you from my RSS reader.

@3

So what? Did you see The Painted Veil? Did you finish it? No. You didn't. Because if you did, you'd be in a fucking coma.

Idiot.

I saw on a blog that Ed Norton plans on remaking all of Ang Lee's films...

But, have either of them surpassed what they cost to make?

Somewhere in the ether, Bill Bixby is crying.

the world didn't need a first Hulk movie, let alone a remake 5 years later.

what we need is a fucking Dr. Strange movie that's faithful to Steve Ditko & Gene Colan's imagination.

How I hate Ed Norton.

Is that because he's not a hot, scantily clad woman you can post about and then feebly link to some screed about the state of Zimbabwe?

I liked your review for the first film Charles.

Personally, I think the television series was the best of the Hulk. He's not really a great or complex character - dude gets made, then rages - so the campy series actually was more fun to watch than either of the films.

Edward Norton's version was so far superior to Ang Lee's, that much like the Star Wars prequels, as far as I'm concerned, it doesn't exist. Gamma poodles! Fucking gamma poodles!

ed norton is good. i have never seen a bad performance by him. therefore i must raise an eyebrow at your seemingly irrational hatred for him.

It's because Jennifer Connelly wasn't in it... which I understand that substituting Liv Tyler as Betty isn't fair, but still... it's a Hulk movie. Not Labrinyth.

I will never watch an Incredible Hulk movie until someone credibly explains to me how a pair of blue jeans can stretch from normal, to the size of a two story building, and back again without bursting a seam, zipper, or button.
