AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 29 2012 12:59 PM EDT

I could say more about it, but I think awesome sums it up enough.

And I'm picky. ;)

AdminNightStrike April 30 2012 8:11 AM EDT

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 30 2012 8:54 AM EDT

Release date looks to be May 4th in the US, according to MetaCritic and a couple TV ads I saw...

MetaCritic has it at a 77/100...that's very good, especially for a comic-book sort of movie. Spider-Man 2, for example, a well-regarded film, ended up at an 83/100 on MetaCritic...

I'm gonna see it this Friday!

QBRanger April 30 2012 5:38 PM EDT

May 4th it is:

96% fresh!

If anyone has already seen it, would they recommend 3-D? Usually 3-D movies make me dizzy, but I was wondering if it enhances the experience.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 30 2012 5:42 PM EDT

I saw it in 3D, and plan to see it agian in 2D.

Some of the fight sequences were a bit, jumpy, and I'm hoping the 3D is the cause of the problem.

(I'm not a big fan of movies converted to 3D post production, unlike movies made in 3D, like Avatar)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 30 2012 5:44 PM EDT

There was one massive bonus for 3D though.

Scarlett Johanson. ;)

BestNUB April 30 2012 5:46 PM EDT

Oh yeah, I forgot she was in it. :)

Just got my tickets for Friday. I gotta say, I'm excited. I'm disappointed in the choice of Ruffalo as Banner (I liked Norton a lot) but excited none the less. :)

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 1 2012 7:52 PM EDT

I do not think they could have picked anyone besides Norton as Banner and I would have been happy. That being said I do not expect it to bring the movie down, only keep it from even more levels of awesome that I am sure Edward Norton would have provide.

I think it came down to money and the fact that Banner probably gets less screen time than all the other heroes.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 2 2012 3:55 AM EDT

I was just as sceptical. But these concerns will disapear when you see Ruffalo on screen. ;)

That he was the first Banner to be motion captured and actually played the Hulk (who was voiced by Lou!) does wonders for the role!

j'bob May 6 2012 2:57 AM EDT

Ruffalo did a decent enough job. He played the brilliant scientist well enough, meh, maybe I'm just biased. But as said already, he did not bring the movie down. That would have been nearly impossible for all of the EPIC AWESOMENESS that filled the screen for nearly 2.5 hours. Wow.

If you see it in the theatre I will say just this. Do not leave until the movie is over. COMPLETELY OVER. as in ALL the credits are done. Ya know what, just wait until they start sweeping up and the employees are like "really dude, that's it".

BestNUB May 6 2012 3:07 AM EDT

This movie was awesome. The Dark Knight was the best superhero movie but it was very dark. This was probably the alternative to that style of movie but still makes it work well, much more lighthearted.

For us, the Teaser came before the end of the credits. ;)

Adminedyit May 6 2012 7:29 AM EDT

Took the little guy (10) to see it Friday night. We had a blast.
The movie, for being a comic book adaptation, was very well made I thought.
Looked over at him a few times during it and he was nothing but eyeballs glued to the screen with a piece of popcorn in hand half way between the bucket and his mouth. Good times.

j'bob May 6 2012 11:17 AM EDT

GL, so you saw BOTH teasers....as in TWO seperate post movie clips? ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 6 2012 1:42 PM EDT

There was a second?

Bah, Guy who saw it the night before said there was only the one. I'll CM you the one I saw.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] May 6 2012 7:07 PM EDT

Just saw it yesterday and I absolutely loved it. We were going to wait till after all the credits rolled to leave but then we saw the first teaser and figured that was it, now that I know there was a second teaser I'm kinda disappointed we didn't stick around just in case. :(

Honestly I didn't think I was going to like the movie at all, I honestly had no desire to see it, but it was my friends bachelor party and that's what we did earlier on in the day before we began the festivities later on that night. I was pleasantly surprised.

Plus.. Scarlett Johansson.. need I say more?

j'bob May 6 2012 7:37 PM EDT

I should say, in a way not to spoil anything... that only one clip was an actual "teaser" ...meaning, hinting at something possibly to come.

the last clip after the credits and everything was more... just for fun.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] May 7 2012 4:31 AM EDT

*Darth Vader voice* "Nooooooooo!"

Must see the clip after the credits.. even if it was a just for fun thing.. >_> we totally should have stayed.

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 7 2012 2:15 PM EDT

Watching the movie I noticed that the majority of the time I had some stupid grin on my face and could not stop smiling out of pure enjoyment.

Ruffalo did do a pretty good job and in many ways this movie did a better job telling Hulk's story than either Hulk movie ever did.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 7 2012 2:28 PM EDT

The Hulk got the two best comedy moments in the Movie. ;)

QBRanger May 7 2012 2:46 PM EDT

The Hulk got the two best comedy moments in the Movie. ;)

yep. Piss in your pants funny.

Just an amazing movie. Almost 2 movies in one.

And I agree. Ruffalo did a great job as the human part of the Hulk.
