I WANT THIS DVD!!!!!!

almostunbiased 7/28/2009 6:51:57 AM

I know a lot on here tore this movie up, but if you throw away all the comics and enjoy it for what it was, it wasn't that bad of a movie.  I still had problems with some things, but I was entertained.  I'll probably buy this.

Wiseguy 7/28/2009 7:41:46 AM

It's still a must have for any true fan.

This was my most heavily anticipated film of the summer. Obviously it didn't deliver to the expectations but I thought it was still enjoyable. My expectations had been tempered a bit months ago when we got the first pictures of Liev and yet he had nothing or very little to do with the shortcomings

Darkknight2280 7/28/2009 7:54:41 AM

Yeah i will be buying this on DVD instead of blu-ray.

xenomorph 7/28/2009 8:03:14 AM

Will the DVD also include a GOOD version of the film?

littlemikey979 7/28/2009 9:02:00 AM

I wonder if Target stores are going to be selling the movie with a special case like they got for the other Marvel movies.

Riddick316 7/28/2009 9:46:12 AM

I liked it so I'll get it on Blu-Ray. I have a Sony 32" 1080i,but when I get my 40" 1080p all my dvd's and Blu-Rays will really rock!!!!

spiderhero 7/28/2009 11:08:07 AM

Will probably rent it so my wife can watch it. Otherwise...meh.

Xchampion 7/28/2009 11:26:21 AM

I particularly liked the movie even though they butchered almost everything in it. I know that sounds crazy but its the truth.

Spiderhero - Why do you hate your wife?
