The Incredible Hulk!

 

Honestly, I was never a big Incredible Hulk movie fan but I grew up with the comics. The big mean green monster is one of my favorite, along with the superman comic series. When I saw Lou Ferrigno’s movie version of the hulk I cringe, that is not the hulk I was expecting, then I saw Eric Bana’s version. despite a decent CGI, Honestly, I was disappointed. I have been following the comic version of the hulk, and the more you read the comics the the more you see what the movie lacks. 

I went to see the new Incredible hulk movie today. Starring Edward Norton, I was expecting another disappointment yet I have to see the movie. So as the movie began, I was a little apprehensive. I was hoping for a better plot this time but I am also careful not to hold my hopes high. As the plot unfolds, I began to relax, it’s as near to the story line as it could get.

 Unlike the Eric Bana version, the new hulk movie did not put the fixated Gen. Thaddeus “thunderbolt” Ross in the center of the movie, Instead, they let the Hulk face a bigger villain in Emil Blonsky a.k.a abomination. It adds to the thrill of the movie, at least the hulk could play the part of an underdog and the writer did not rely on  having the hulk smash as many tank as he could to sell the story .

 It also answers one of the greatest mystery in the Incredible Hulk story. That is to understand why on earth does the pants stay where it should be when the rest of the hulks clothing is shredded into strips every time Bruce Banner turns into the Hulk. On the movie, Banner uses stretchable material twice his normal size for a pants just in case he turns to the green monster. 🙂

 Adding twist to the story is the cameo appearance of the Iron Man at the end of the movie. well maybe, not the Iron Man persona but Tony Starks. At the end of the movie, Starks approached Gen. Ross in a bar and said the they are putting together a team.  What team?

 If you have seen the Iron Man movie and was patient enough to wait in the theaters until the final credits have rolled, you will understand what I am saying. at the end of the credit roll, the movie shows Tony Stark going home  only to fine someone waiting for him, this is how the final dialogue went.

Tony Stark: Jarvis.

 Jarvis : [distorted] Welcome home, Sir

[Tony notices a figure by the window]

Nick Fury: “I am Iron Man…” Think you’re the only super hero in the world? Mr. Stark, you’ve become part of a bigger universe. You just don´t know it yet.

Tony Stark : Who the hell are you?

[The man walks into the light]

Nick Fury : Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Tony Stark: Uh-huh

Nick Fury : I’m here to talk to you about the Avenger Initiative.

 

The avenger initiative is refering to The Avengers, A team of superheroes much like the DC comic’s Justice league. The Avenger’s is the Marvel Comics version. The cameo appearance of stark in the Hulk movie is part of the effort to establish the so called Marvel Universe.  Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk might just be the beginning of things to come.

Walang magawa sa bahay. Dinampot ko yung inaamag nang diyaryo sa ilalim ng lamesita. Pinagpag ang alikabok sa papel. sumandal sa sofa sabay tingin sa front page. Pohta…mukha ni Gloria. Umayos ng upo. Binuklat and diyaryo sa bandang gitna. Holdapan dito, patayan doon. tarages iba na talaga and past time ng mga tao ngayon. Nakakasulasok, nakakainis ang mga balita. Perepareho ang tema ng balita araw-araw iba-iba lang ang pangalan. kaya tuloy nakukuntento na lang ako sa inaamag kong diyaryo. kahit ilang siglo na ang nakalipas mula nung bilhin ko ito, okay pa rin. palitan mo lang ang pangalan ng mga pinatay at pumatay, ang nagnakaw at ninakawan. ang mga pulis na holdaper…eerrr.. ang mga pulis at mga holdaper pala, current events na ulit ang laman ng diyaryo ko. 
  
 Sa may kalagitnaan ng diyaryo, may balita tungkol sa panukalang ipatupad ulit ang Death Penalty dito sa Pinas. Ayos, kahit papaano may gud news sa diyaryo. dapat nang matagal ibinalik ang death penalty na yan eh. para medyo nakapag-umpisa na tayong magbawas ng ilang demonyo dito sa lupa. pero siyempre hindi rin maalis ang mga pro-life movement na humaharang sa panukala. Hindi mo rin sila masisisi, may rason din sila kahit hindi ako sangayon minsan. Sabi nga ng hinayupak na si Annie, kaya daw may kulungan para mabigyan ng chance na magbago ang mga nakagawa ng krimen. minsan baluktot na katuwiran yun. hindi lahat ng kaso eh, shoplifting lang o di naman kaya eh jaywalking lang. kung ganyan lang ang mga kaso okay lang ang preso. Pero kung ang kaso eh, murder o mas masahol… rape o di naman ay pedopilya, hindi na makukuha sa preso yan. hindi ako sangayon, kahit isumbong mo pa ako kay father. 
 
Kaya dumadami ang krimen kasi parang sobrang linient ng batas. Sabihan mo ang rapist ng “hoy pohtanamoka… 30 years ka sa preso ngayon with hard work” siguro ang isisagot niya sayo eh “carry lang” tarages. Sabi nga ni Ra’s Al Ghul; Crime cannot be tolerated. Criminals thrive on the indulgence of society’s understanding. 
  
Kung tutuusin mas maayos-ayos na ngayon kesa sa dati. Lethal Injection na ang ginagamit. Hindi tulad dati na electric chair o firing squad. Kung ako lang ang masusunod, and dapat sa mga pedopayl eh ihawin ng buhay tapos ipakain sa buwaya.walang kapatawaran bwahahahaha.
 Minsan parang ang rason pa ng iba para harangin ang pagbabalik ng death penalty eh dahil hindi daw makatao. paksyet. hindi makatao?!!!! tangenang yan. ang kaso eh gang rape, pagkatapos pagpasapasahan yung babae, pinagsasaksak pa. tapos pag hahatulan sila na tutusukan ng karayom na may lason ang tawag ng mga ultra rightist eh “hindi makatao” naknang bibeng duling.  
 
 Anyway…have you heard of Autoerotic asphyxia? ito yung orgasm habang sinasakal ang tao. habang humihigpit ang pagkakasakal nagkakaroon ng oxygen deprivation sa utak causing hypoxic euphoria resulting to sexual gratification. una itong nadiscover nung usong uso pa ang lynching. napansin na yung ibang binibigti ng dahan dahan eh nagkakaroon ng erection o kadalasan ay orgasm. tanungin moko? ano naman ang kinalaman nito sa death penalty? ang sagot? bakit hindi na lang death penalty by strangulation ang isabatas dito sa pinas para sa nga nagkasala ng rape at pedopilya. Naliban sa mura ng gastos dito compared sa lethal injection (na gumagamit ng chemical) or electic chair (gumagamit ng kuryente… natural, electric chair nga eh! bobo!). dito tali lang ang katapat. Hindi na siguro magrereklamo ang mga ultra right civil right groups. biruin mo, isa sa mga rason kaya nagawa nila ng krimen ay sexual gratification tapos mamamatay sila na sexually gratified. di ba?
