I watched "The Incredible Hulk" today. Most people slated it, but I actually quite enjoyed it. Great action sequences and a really impressive helicopter shot of a favella.

Nice.

Yeah, that opening sequence is almost too good a piece of cinematography for a dumb superhero movie... but happily the dumb superhero movie is very good too.  To anyone who didn't like it, I ask: did you see Hulk smash stuff?  A lot of stuff, much of it military hardware, and some in inventive ways?  Uh-huh.  Therefore it was a good Hulk movie.

I really liked that film too. There is a bit of an obvious line in it where Norton's vision lost out to the producers' vision of what the movie could be, but it's well worth a watch nonetheless.

Indeed. The final fight is as good as any superhero battle I've seen. And Roth post super-soldier serum gives a nice taste of just how cool Capt America could be...

That said, having to watch it half a dozen times in a couple of days with my youngest son has soured it for me somewhat...

You were hoping for the Edward Norton version, weren't you?  :)

Whatever happened to those sticky lemony sandwich-type biscuits? You've just reminded me about those, and I haven't seen them for years.

I WANT ONE NOW!

I don't like jammie dodgers, they're too dry. I much prefer jam sandwich creams!
STRIKE !!!
