I've Finally Seen: THE INCREDIBLE HULK (2008)

My brother and I watched The Incredible Hulk from Netflix yesterday. I was a fan of the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno show, but otherwise am not wild about the Gamma Green Giant. I tend to lose interest in live-action-and-CGI movies if there's too much CGI, and because the Hulk is so much larger than life, CGI is a must.

William Hurt and Tim Roth made great adversaries for the Hulk. Edward Norton and Liv Tyler did not annoy me as Bruce Banner and Betty Ross. I enjoyed the clip of Bill Bixby in "The Courtship of Eddie's Father," Lou Ferrigno's cameo as a security guard, and the use of Joe Harnell's iconic TV score "The Lonely Man". Marvel really put its stamp on this movie, and that more than anything else interests me in a sequel.

Now that Liv Tyler has made the jump to comic based movies she should try out for the lead in Joel Silvers Wonder Woman.
