He had me at "Arrgghhh"

I promised myself I wouldn't fall for it: all the pretty words, the snappy sequences and the fancy editing, but I guess I wasn't as strong as I thought. Don't judge me too harshly, but I think I want to see The Incredible Hulk. I was so disappointed and hurt by the last Hulk movie. I swore that, when I heard about a new one being made, I would not, not, not see it. This new film was just a blatant robbery of my movie-going money, and I would not fall prey to it, I said to myself.
But then, they cast Edward Norton, who is always an interesting choice for pretty much any movie he's ever been in. And then, the previews and trailers looked kinda nifty. And then, I heard that there's a cameo by Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr. And then, I saw a "making of" piece this afternoon on HBO. And now, it's in my friendly neighborhood cineplex.
Help! I've been seduced by The Incredible Hulk! I am itching to go see this film, which I promised, swore, mandated and stomped my feet that I would not pay to see! [Fists held up in the air and slightly waving.] Why, summer movies?! Why?! Why do you do this to me?! I'm but a pawn in your marketing game! I'm your piece of clay to mold! I'm ... I'm ... I'm EASY!
