It seems to me that they don't understand the book's CURRENT appeal. The Hulk that Stan Lee was trying to create was something akin to a modern monster story. The appeal for me in those days was exactly the fact that this Banner guy turned into an unpredictable monster and had to suffer for it. That was interesting human drama.
Some did, yes . . . but others moaned and said later "I so knew he was going to say that at that moment."
Speak for yourself. I have absolutely no need to be that violent.
That's debatable. There has to be some sense of suspense for the protagonist's well-being.
Again speak for yourself.
Yes to the former, not so much to the latter. We may foolishly want to overcome society's limits, but most of the people who do that are in jail. We should want to work together as a society to determine which limits are going to work the best for keeping things balanced (a message of the movie actually - Banner needs to balance or come to terms with his "limitation" not destroy it completely).
And that is why Abomination/Hulk battles get really old really fast.
When were pissed, yeah.
You're scaring me. I have no desire to get that analogously violent with life's frustrations.
Godzilla is symbolic of the bomb! No damn wonder the Japanese don't root for him! Ever notice his breath is radioactive!! Godzilla is a cultural narrative response to a horrific event for the Japanese. Look at the pattern.
Radioactive terror destroys city.
Japanese army brave, but useless.
Japanese people humbly rebuild, knowing that the radioactive terror is still out there . . .
Did I just describe a Godzilla movie or WWII?
