That's strange, everyone keeps asking me exactly that a lot these days :)

He he. They couldn't. It was an adaptation, right?
(see Spiderman: They had to edit out all chunks of the myth, and even 
mixed MJ for Gwen Stacy in the bridge scene).

"Hey, Hulk, you whimp!"


"OK, I take it back".


You know what? I think you're right, the script was er... plain.

But I said Ang Lee did an honorable job, didn't I? The screen-splitting 
ideas, taken back from older films (first Abel Gance in his Napoleon 
back at the beginning of the 20th century, and of course all the sixties 
mannerisms like the Thomas Crown Affair), are well done.

The filming is nice, and all in all I spent quite a nice moment.

Although, of course, that's not one of my favorites of all times. Did 
you se me say so? Come on nagrom! Talk! (putting a police flashlight if 
nagrom's eyes)


Comics adaptation? Batman returns, by Burton. This had the exact 
pathos/mythos combination one would expect.
