Scientist Bruce Banner (Eric Bana) has, to put it mildly, anger management issues. His quiet life as a brilliant researcher working with cutting edge genetic technology conceals a nearly forgotten and painful past. His ex-girlfriend and equally brilliant fellow researcher, Betty Ross (Jennifer Connelly), has tired of Bruce's cordoned off emotional terrain and resigns herself to remaining an interested onlooker to his quiet life. Which is exactly where Betty finds herself during one of the early trials in Banner's groundbreaking research. A simple oversight leads to an explosive situation and Bruce makes a split-second decision; his heroic impulse saves a life and leaves him apparently unscathed-his body absorbing a normally deadly dose of gamma radiation.Acclaimed Oscar-winning filmmaker Ang Lee turns his masterful eye to adapting the classic Marvel Comics character for the big screen. Setting out to faithfully transfer the Hulk comic book character from four-color paneled page to motion picture screen, Lee combines all the elements of a blockbuster visual effects-intensive superhero movie with the brooding romance and tragedy of Universal's classic horror films. Staying true to the early subversive spirit of the Hulk as envisioned by its creators (Stan Lee and Jack Kirby) while also tuning the tale to current dangerous times, Lee presents a portrait of a man at war with himself and the world, both a superhero and a monster, a means of wish fulfillment and a nightmare...

Yul Brynner nahm hier die Rolle als Kopf der Revolverhelden ein. Nun inszeniert Antoine Fuqua („Training Day“, „The Equalizer“) das Remake des klassischen Westerns.

In the post-war years, the proliferation of transnational European co-productions gave rise to a cross-pollination of genres, with the same films sold in different markets as belonging to different movements. Among these, Riccardo Freda (I vampiri, The Horrible Dr. Hichock)’s Double Face was marketed in West Germany as an Edgar Wallace ‘krimi’, while in Italy it was sold as a giallo in the tradition of Mario Bava’s Blood and Black Lace, combining elements from both genres for a unique and unforgettable viewing experience. When wealthy businessman John Alexander (the legendary Klaus Kinski, giving an atypically restrained performance)’s unfaithful wife Helen (Margaret Lee, Circus of Fear) dies in a car crash, it initially looks like a freak accident. However, the plot thickens when evidence arises suggesting that the car was tampered with prior to the crash. And John’s entire perception of reality is thrown into doubt when he discovers a recently-shot pornographic movie which appears to feature Helen – suggesting that she is in fact alive and playing an elaborate mind game on him… Psychological, psychedelic, and at times just plain psychotic, Double Face stands as one of the most engaging and enjoyable films in Freda’s lengthy and diverse career – a densely-plotted, visually-stunning giallo that evokes much of the same ambience of paranoia and decadence as such classics of the genre as One on Top of the Other and A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin.

The Shadow of War is a direct continuation of the Middle-earth game: Shadow of Mordor. Developed by the American studio Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, is one of the best fantasy action games with RPG elements.The title continues the threads started in the previous section. The player's task is to create an orcish army, which will help him during the fight with his opponents. As you can guess, the game, just like the previous part, represents the hard, multi-month work of the creators, which results are full details of the characters and opponents, as well as refined elements of the environment, complemented by a rich set of animations and a realistic lighting system. To this should also be added several other changes and improvements in the mechanics of the game.This applies especially to the unique Nemesis system, which introduces very advanced artificial intelligence, which allows for more natural reactions of the character to the player's decisions, for example, after killing too many enemy leaders, the less important ones will start to be afraid, and this makes it easier to drag them to their side page.It is also worth mentioning the climatic, specially composed music that accompanies the player while roaming the volcanic wastes and new powers added to the hero's skills, thanks to which the direct fight with the opponents is even more impressive.Definitive EditionShadow of War Definitive Edition is a product containing both the basic version of the game and a packet of four additional elements, which includes two story expansions introducing the new campaign, as well as two nemesis expansions.The first DLC called Desolation of Mordor reveals a new region - the Lithlad Desert. The player takes on the role of Baranor there and gets the opportunity to create an Easterling army. Additionally, the expansion introduces to the game the character of the dwarf Torvin, new beasts, as well as new mercenaries and adjutants.In the DLC called Blade of Galadriel, the player plays as Eltariel. The heroine enters the fight using new powers based on the Light of Galadriel and the ability to wield the New Ring. This expansion also includes new orcish allies, subsequent side missions, and new boss fights.The last two downloadable contents, both Slaughter Tribe Nemesis and Outlaw Tribe Nemesis, add thousands of new enemies and supporters to the game. They also introduce spectacular animations of death and brutal executions, as well as add to the game the fortress, outposts and the wilderness, and diversified the assortment of the legendary items and the new orc weapon.StorylinePlayers take control of the main characters' duet again. The first of them is Talion, one of the Guardians of the Black Gate. The other is Celebrimbor - a specter that is the astral form of the elf who many centuries ago had forged the Rings of Power. As a ghost, in Talion's body, he makes a cooperation with him. The protagonists decide to create another ring, which is to provide them with enough power to gather the army and ultimately destroy Sauron.Of course, to achieve their goal, the main heroes have to face many other, more or less friendly characters. During the game, the player will also have the opportunity to meet the heroes known from Tolkien's books and their screening, which include, among others, the Balrog, the Witch-king of Angmar, and also the ruler of the dark - Sauron.GameplayIn the SoW game, players enter a vast, open world. As you can easily guess, their main goal is exploration. As in the previous section, the main character still has various skills useful in the fight and during the tour of the extraordinary land, but at the same time the combat mechanics, as well as the entire gameplay, have been diversified with several novelties. A good example is even more emphasis on RPG elements - in the game, there is more equipment, such as weapons and armors - and the possibility of mounting new mounts, such as dragons.The innovative Nemesis system has also been expanded, thanks to which the opponents acquire individual characteristics. It means in short, that depending on the actions, the player creates new, unique enemies or comrades.In addition to fighting against opponents, it is also important to come up with a strategy that will allow you to take control of the enemy's fortress. Of course, remember that the acquired object can always be recaptured.It's also worth knowing that in the game, is available the multiplayer mode, where players can bounce each other's fortresses.ReceptionThe Middle-earth: Shadow of War, just like its previous part, has been recognized as a very good game. The reviewers rated it very positively, indicating at the same time the enormous amount of pluses it has, and it is not just about graphics or soundtrack. Players primarily paid attention to the amazing atmosphere that the game creates and a very captivating story, full of interesting characters and sudden, dramatic twists. Many of the approvals have also gained a very well developed combat system and character development system.Additionally, some players were very positive about such elements of the game as a large number of weapons and armor, that can be upgraded, well-developed nemesis system, interesting side motives, many tasks, the presence of two mini-maps, level of difficulty and the possibility to create a large army, with which you can defend as well as attack the fortress.
