Ang Lee's Hulk is better than Letterier's.
I liked both Hulk movies but Leterrier's was better. Its the Hulk. You want to see him smash ****. That's the whole ****ing point!! You guys are crazy

I also saw Splice last night with Adgy and my peeps.
I've come to the conclusion that I didn't like it, 20 mins into it and I realized why I never had any interest in seeing it. Horror is not my thing. The acting was fine and the effects were really good but the action/story was pretty predictable. I particularly didn't like the way scientists were portrayed as quirky, oddly dressing, amoral, yet "hip" rogues with autopipetters and petri dishes. I know it's a movie but apparently the idea of ethnics and science doesn't exist. They had made semi amorphous penis blobs and everyone was alright with that.
The sexual content in the movie was surprising, I didn't expect much of it since I was expecting this to be a "science experiment gone bad, gets lose, and starts killing people in the lab" type of movie. I've never been so traumatized over sex in a movie since Ang Lee's Lust Caution (although no freak genetic hybrid is every going to top the horror I experienced seeing Tony Leung's ****ing balls bopping around to and fro).
Adgy told me that the movie was supposedly funny from what the reviews said but, I didn't really laugh. I was slightly embarrassed at one point because he was laughing the loudest during an intense part of the movie - and I think he was the only one laughing while everyone was shocked or grossed out.
I think the only funny thing about the movie was that I kept of pointing out how the "monster" looked like Bjork. Basically I would say Splice is like Species meets Bjork.
Is Splice Venus as a Boy?
Interesting film. And the music RULED! Muddy! Howling Wolf! Etta James! That music makes me happy!
I am amused that Etta James was annoyed with Beyonce playing her. I think that started with the time when Obama asked Beyonce to sing "At Last" at his inaugural. Seriously, Etta James is still alive and you could have just have asked her to perform that song, Obama, shame on you.

Either way, good movie.
Now, I am far from a genius or an intelligent person for that matter, but like Banner, I am a nerd, and when I was young, I dreamed about being some simple cretin overpowered being who would strike fear in those who were harassing me for being different. And that's why the Hulk is my favorite Marvel character up to this day. Because beneath my pretentious "look at me I can cite Foucault and Derrida" lies that insecure teenager who wishes could be that primitive strong being that can scare people and force them to leave me alone.
I over analyze comic book characters, but, um, well, that's because I believe they are modern myths who speak to some of us.
