Hulk & Wizard World Philly

Just got back from the Marvel screening for "The Incredible Hulk", and I gotta say damn... there was a whole lot of badass in that movie! They definitely turned up the action and intensity for this Hulk. The acting was great, I loved the story of Bruce Banner and where he was living in the beginning. Getting to see Marko's hulk come to life was a trip as well. I think my only real beef with it was that some of the CG looked a little rushed and too artificial. Whether you liked the first one or not, if you go back and just watch how the hulk's character was animated and look at the textures of things like his skin, hair eyes and such, it was damn near flawless. It's just too bad his color was so distracting that most people mistook neon skin tones for bad CG. Either way if you dig comic book movies this is definitely a must see. It was a lot of fun, you get all the kick ass one on one brawling action you want out of a Hulk movie.

I said I'd post some pics from Philly so here are a few.
