Hulk Re-watched

October 19, 2008

Well thats the fourth time I have now watched the Hulk, And it’s still as impressive as the first time. One small thing that it’s taken me four watches to acknowledge. Emile Blonsky aka the Abomination in the film is Russian Born and brought up in the UK. Serving with the Royal Marines he was seconded to the United States for their special mission. Ok so far, but the scene where he is in full dress uniform talking to General Ross, quite clearly shows him in a US army uniform. Now when your seconded to another countrys military you wear your own uniform. Error or Lazy editing you decide

Anti-Smoking Facists start on comic books and films

June 12, 2008

the following is taken from newsarama

If The Hulk thought Abomination was tough, how will he handle 27,000 anti-smoking advocates?

In a press release issued yesterday, the American Medical Association Alliance — the volunteer arm of the AMA — took Universal Pictures to task for the depiction of a cigar-chomping Gen. Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt) in The Incredible Hulk.

“Shame on The Incredible Hulk for unnecessarily adding smoking to a sequel that would have been just as exciting and believable without it,” alliance president Dianne Fenyk says in the statement. “Universal Studios and the other Hollywood studios should be especially embarrassed for using comic book movies, which they market to children and know youth will want to see, to promote tobacco.”

The release points out that the Gen. Ross in Ang Lee’s 2003 film didn’t smoke. The group also cites the elimination of smoking from Marvel comics by Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada after his father died from smoking-related lung disease.

The AMA Alliance is encouraging its members to spread the word about the smoking in The Incredible Hulk, and to pressure Motion Picture Association of America and Universal to remove smoking from youth-rated films.

So the butcher asks, what next for the anti-smoking facists who decide what libertys we can and cannot have, nick fury with out a cigar, wolverine with out a cigar. Hero’s who can’t drink, Iron Man watch out they are coming for you

“Sorry Sir, It’s irresponsible for you to be serving in any capacity as a hero seeing as you drink”

Bah bunch of do-gooders
