Quote:I would flip the Hulk and Punisher movies. Like new Punisher better...and did not think 1st Hulk was horrible, though tit was just as good as thenewets Hulk. In fact it was stupid the call it a re-make...it would so easily have been easy to call it Hulk-2.
Could have, but considering the PR the first movie got they had to distance themselves as much as possible. I did not think it was an aweful movie either, just not that great either. Most people think it is a joke though so they had to seperate it the best they could.
To each there own, I just know the new Punisher came off way to comic booky to me. I know that sounds wierd but in the movie I should not feel like I am watching a comic book, make it into a movie.
I can understand why they felt they had to distance,,,but if you look at the numbers they did about equal (Hulk 1 and 2). So in hindsight they should have listened to me...lol...especially since the 1st one ended with him in a 3rd-worldish country in hiding and the 2nd one picked up in a way that would easily have melded and not made us watch any more origin story telling...or talk about why he is on the run etc,,,
As tot he Punisher...I wasnt really crazy about either of them...I guess the only thing I liked better about the new one was it was more non-stop action...so I didnt have to pay as much attention to what I thought was weak story-telling in both movies.
