    It's Friday, sunny and I don't want to be in work, so now time for another vote.
    I'm not too sure about either the Hulk or T3. I was quite looking forward to the hulk, but the trailers have put me right off and from something I expected to be great, I'm not looking forward to it - it's a story that could be a great film but I don't think it will be.
    On the other side, I was dreading T3, I thought it would spoil the series and just be an expensive way to prove that arnies past it, but from what I've seen heard and read about it I now think it's going to be a good film. Maybe I've just fallen to the marketing machine, but I'm really looking forward to it. So rather than which we're looking forward too most, how about voting on which we think will be the biggest dissapointment ??

    Bit of a "the glass is half empty" kind of person aren't we?:D

    Personally I think they'll both be crap, so I guess my glass is completely empty:zonked:

    The Hulk is getting some good write ups and I for one am looking forward to seeing it. T3 also look good. Why don't you wait until you've seen these films and then decide?

    My expectations of Hulk are low enough that it will be hard to be disappointed. On the other hand, the last two Terminator movies are two of my favorite movies so (even trying to be sensible) my expectations of T3 are way too high.

    Already had this happen this year. X-Men2 expectations low, happily surprised. Matrix Reloaded very high, bit disappointed (but still enjoyed it).

    I voted for T3, but in retrospect, I'll probably be more disappointed with Hulk. I expect T3 to be utterly awful, so it won't be much of a disappointment. My expectations for Hulk are pretty low, but I still expect some entertainment value.

    Yes... slow Friday = pointless response from me :)

    T3 looks ok, but far better than the Chuck.

    Having seen the Hulk, I am certain that T3 will be the poorer film, by far...

    I never understood why that was a pessimistic view, to me ‘Half Empty’ means I have had the pleasure of half all ready and have an other half to go, whereas the ‘Half full’ has only been given a half (the poor sod).:confused:

    Back to the films: I cannot see how the story would progress with the Hulk as he destroys things yet you are supposed to take his side.

    As long as the good guys are destroying bad guys/bad things, surely that's how most heros work?

    The Hulk film has a much more complex backstory than, say, the Spiderman film and you do 'connect' with what he's doing. In fact, you pretty much have to be on his side. It's some of the fully human characters in the film that are the real monsters...

    Agree juboy,having seen this aswell,I can only say how slow the film progresses is bad(20 mins too long)
    The acting is strange,as it looks like eric bana was hardly bothered(maybe the directors fault?)The CG's are not bad but seem rather out of place in this type of slow building film-if it had been more action orientated from the start,like x-men it would have been great.
    5/10:lesson: must do better!!!

    Eric Bana doesn't exactly shine. After seeing him in Chopper I fear he may never reach that level of acting again though. I've mentioned on another forum that the scenes between Bana and Connelly are less 'real' than some of the CGI Hulk's acting.

    Mind you, I bet the Hulk will easily out-act Arnie in T3 :laugh:

    I still prefer the film to Spiderman and X Men though - although I guess it's closer to the first 15 minutes of the first X Men film than the typical superhero movie fare.

    Must admit my expectations are high. Ang Lee directing this kind of movie has my curiosity piqued...

    BE CAREFUL HERE..............I'M TRYING NOT TO GIVE TOO MUCH AWAY !!!

    Overall............i did enjoy the movie.
    However, the first half hour, or the introduction, was exactly that, half an hour..........too long. This could have been shorter.
    To be honest i expected the CGI to be better, not that it was bad, i just expected more. There are some good action pieces.
    I couldn,t quite take to Bana,s character.......bad casting / directing maybe ?
    The last half hour or so got a bit silly ( yes i know ) and almost a cartoon into film, ( if you,ve seen it you,ll know )

    Tis still worth seeing at the cinema, big screen, blah, blah, blah.

    My rating 6 / 10

    Cheers
    Kev

    at tonights charidee premiere at the Empire Leicester Sq.

    Ang Lee was there and gave a short speech before the film and Eric Bana, Josh Lucas and Jennifer Connelly briefly wandered up to wave at everyone.

    I too thought the film was too slow in places and far too unbelievable in others. Why spend ages trying to set up credible characters and follow it with totally "incredible" looking action pieces?

    Some cool Comanche helos and F22 Lightning fighters amongst the military hardware on show though...

    IMO not as good as Spiderman, which I was still not a big fan of, and certainly not as good as X Men 1 (haven't seen X2 yet!).
