“Punisher” Discussion

If there’s no review by Monday morning, odds are none
of us have seen the movie. So, here’s a discussion
forum for the film. If you guys like the idea, we
can post discussion articles for all genre films as
they come out.

      Did This Reviewer Even See The Film, Or Is He Going Off The Old One? I Didn’t See It, It Might Be That Bad. This One Wasn’t.

      Dude, who is this guy? this review makes no sense … “Out of fear that audiences would not recognize the hero when he walks on screen, they have forced Jane to wear a gigantic Punisher logo on his chest.” I may not know a lot about the comic book, but i knew enough going into the movie to know that’s part of the character, not some stupid add-on for the movie. And where does he get this… “The woman with the honor of playing Castle’s post-murder sex reward is bikini model Rebecca Romijn-Stamos” — either he saw a test screening with some scenes that didn’t make the cut, or he’s smoking crack, Castle doesn’t get (nor want) any booty after his wife is killed.

      The Punisher wasn’t a master piece of Cinimatic Craft, but it was fairly entertaining, and had it’s definite moments. Sure there was a little cheese now and then, but you have to expect that given the Comic origins. These characters are supposed to be larger then life afterall. They’re not just regular men, their super-heros and super-villans.

      I read this guy’s review of the Matrix. I’ve also read material from similar people in my Literature studies. Here’s his deal

        He’s a somebody and we aren’t.
        He has a Ph.D. and we don’t.
        Since we are asking his opinion on something, we are therfore automatically his inferiors.
        Since has the superior mind, anything he likes, must be “good.” Conversly, anything he dislikes must be “bad.”
        And you can’t argue the point because he’s smarter than you.
        Oh, yeah, he’s British!

    Good Flick
    I Loved It. I Was Surprised How Well It Was Done. I’ll Admit I Didn’t Read Much Punisher Comics, But I Like The Character As he Came Out In The Movie. He Didn’t Win Every Fight, Got Beat Up, And Had Aim About As Good As The People Who Were Shooting At Him. This Had To Be One Of The More Realistic Comic Book Films I’ve Seen.

    Also, Any Move Where There Are Scenes That Cause 50% Of The People I Was Watching It With To Cover Their Eyes And Hide Until I Told Them It Was Over, Without Actually Doing Anything Nasty, That’s Impressive. (The Peircing Scene)

      Bad bad bad
      Hello? Were you watching the same movie I was? It was bad. They spent way too long on the back story. His family was killed, enough said. Today’s Hollywood wants people to get all attached to the family before they kill them, hoping it adds emotional content to the film. Fuck that.

      It wasn’t dark like the comic was. I didn’t even follow the comic. I just watched the original one and it was SO much better. Even the stunts in the new one were poor. When his car flipped after the drawbridge, you could see the oh, what do you call it, the thing they use to push the car into the flip. Realistic my ass. And how many times did he get stabbed in the heart and got back up like nothing happened?

        P.S.
        Forgot to mention these points that I was discussing earlier irl… I think they spent too much of their budget on John Travolta and his hairdresser(s). There was clearly something missing between the witchdoctor finding Castle on the rocks and Castle leaving the witchdoctor. The explanation behind his symbol was a little hokey, and the end with the symbol was so reminiscent of Daredevil (which I also thought royally sucked).

          Re: P.S.
          Oh yeah, I’m especially irked by the suckiness of this movie because I cut out at 4pm with my coworkers to see it opening day. We wasted two hours in the theater only to be greeted afterwards with the fact that while we were wasting our time, we had serious network hardware issues and had to work on it all night. I’ll stop posting now :)

          I’m pretty sure that’s from one of the incarnations out of the comic book

          Why does no one ever remember “The Crow” ?

          (Other movies may have used the idea first .. but it’s the one that allways sticks in my mind, because it was so fucking good).
