Fantastic movie.
It was based on immortality incorporated by Robert Sheckley who was my favourite science fiction writer as a child.

Fantastic movie... 10 out of 10 plus a wonderful soundtrack by Wendy Carlos.

I saw that movie in theaters on opening day. Blew my mind with just how futuristic it looked. Nowadays though, it's so hard to make anything out! The CGI was really, really limited.

Whereas the latter movie plays things too safe and doesn't have any real standout moments, Ang Lee's take on the character is a fairly unique specimen of a movie. A lot of people dislike it due to not having as much action as one would expect and for having a ridiculous fight scene involving mutant dogs, but I like that it delves into the idea that the Hulk is comparable to a bewildered animal rather than just a badass who smashes things. If nothing else, I'd say it's worth watching for the editing, which is often bizarrely mesmerizing and helps the movie feel like more than just another early noughties superhero flick.


I love the honest trailer of the film... "Hulk... INTROSPECT!"

I also agree that Waterworld was pretty good.

Super Mario Bros. is a B movie masterpiece. I love it to death, and the cheesiness only adds to the charm. Who cares if it isn't a faithful adaptation when the movie is so fun?

I think that a "faithful" Mario movie would probably be an unreasonable expectation, but it wouldn't have killed them for it to have, oh, literally anything at all to do with the game. But even on its own terms, I don't see a "fun" movie there. It's as labored, overbearing, and ugly as Batman & Robin. (As for that movie, I'm convinced that anyone who defends it by connecting it to the '60s TV show has not actually seen the '60s TV show. Nothing in that zippy, snappy little program even begins to resemble Batman & Robin's revolting spectacle.)
