both... it's a great film, based on true stories written by melbourne criminal Mark Brandon "Chopper" Reed... wrote books while he was in prison and has become a celebrity...

up until that point we'd only seen Bana do sketch comedy, so this was when we realised he could really act...

Oh, come on. It was bad, but I wouldn't call Hulk a comedy.

I would! Without a doubt a laughable joke

Script sucked, not Bana's fault. His comedy is not hilarious, probably because i can never understand Australian

PS: Chopper looks good so far. See it on You tube,

Yes, Eric Bana did some years as a comic actor on a sketch show called Full Frontal, which I have on video tape.


And no, I don't regard Star Wars as mainstream, and I don't think most people who are not science fiction fanciers do, either. Star Wars is huge, it's enormous, it's amazingly successful, but to most people it's just more science fiction rubbish. But my saying so doesn't make it true; by all means disbelieve me if you wish.

I have not watched Star Wars. But I have seen Blue Harvest, Robot Chicken, Space Balls, and every possible parody of it. It is mainstream because it makes a billion dollars a movie. While we scrounge up only a billion and a half for all 11 movies
