New stories: Skittish Stud Colt at the Stedman Ranch by dymondbolt, Teacher's Pet 2 by Redkage and Uberteen 3 by muscl4life

New stories:

The Incredible Hulk--While Ang Lee's movie went for the brain, this version of the Hulk went for the heart, one that was close to lead actor-cum-screenplay doctor Edward Norton's, and the film was the better for it. Although I'm not as sure about this movie getting a sequel (though they laid the groundwork for it) as I am with Iron Man, there's definitely going to be more Hulk in our future, one way or another. BTW, no need to stick around till after the credits this time.

Kung Fu Panda--I knew I was in for a treat when the astounding animated opening sequence of this legendary story of a legend came on. (I was a bit disappointed when it shifted to 3D. <g>) The attention to detail assuaged me that I wasn't going to suffer through another Shrek 3 , and though the story was somewhat formulaic, the simplicity gave Jack Black the platform to deliver the laughs, big time.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian--Not much to say except that it wasn't as ponderous as the first movie, which I never bothered to write about, and that it made me look forward to the next one, which is based on the book I enjoyed the most in the series.
