Punisher (2004) [Apr. 20th, 2004|04:30 am]
[In the Moment |tiredtired]
[Special Music |AC/DC - Hells Bells]


It was delicious to see so many things go wrong with this film. A real writing corpse to dissect and have fun.

Whoever said The Punisher by Hensleigh was "Pretty Good" . . . I wouldn't start a response to the film with those two words.

If this isn't a joke biography for Jonathan Hensleigh, then it explains something to me.

This is the 2nd failed attempt to bring Punisher to the big screen.

I have much to say about the poor quality of comic book stories.

If someone really liked this attempt at the Punisher, I'd like to actually hear it. I'll think no less of you, seriously.

They made a Punisher movie? Damn, I'm out of the loop.

IMHO, other than X-Men and X-Men 2, all the other Marvel movies have sucked.

I look at films from a combination of elements.

I kind of appreciate failures like The Punisher . . . they're helpful to look at for study . . .

Hulk, to me, had great special effects, but it was a really mediocre story at best.

Spider-Man, while not extremely faithful to the comic from what I'm told, that one I like based on the fact that most other comic-based films are pretty poor quality.

For me, it's not so much about staying faithful to every detail from the comic book. Novels that are adapted have major changes from the book at times. If the screenplay is solid, details can be forgiven.

The horizon features Catwoman. It could be interesting. I never knew about Hellboy and didn't go out in a rush to see it . . . after Hulk, I'm not in a rush to see comic-based movies. I'll watch Spider-Man 2 because I watched the first one and liked it.

I think I've been Punished twice.

http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0098141/ (Punihser 1989)

The '89 Punisher was Dolph Lundgren.

Batman, to me, was worth it just for Nicholson as The Joker.

Your tired icon looks like you...hee hee!

I stopped wanting to see comic book movies after DareDevil. Ben Affleck ruined it for me completely!

Daredevil was on par with The Punisher 2004.

Get ready for the ultra-flop Catwoman, aka The Beginning of the Flopping Sound of Halle Berry's Dead Fish Career.

Ben Affleck ruins a lot of things.

He at least can make fun of Gigli. I commend him for that.

I did like Jersey Girl, and I tend to hate the performances of Liv Tyler. That speaks volumes for the film.

Sort of.

My sleeping has less to do with ugly feeling than the feeling of having to put up and deal with a job that isn't writing full-time.

Yet, I haven't done much in the time I've been alive but study.

I'm a professional study. Sometimes that bothers me.

I loved "Spider-Man", disappointed a lil with "X-Men", didn't bother watching "Hulk", the original "Punisher" was horrible, Loved Burton's "Batman" & "Batman Returns", Hated Schumacher's "Batman Forever" & "Batman and Robin", "Superman" series was pretty cool for it's times, "Captain America" movie was kinda lame, Don't wanna see "Hellboy" or "Punisher", want to see "Spider-Man 2" and Nolan's new "Batman..." movie (Christian Bale as Batman and a bunch of other cameos) and kinda debating whether or not to watch "Fantastic Four" when it comes out.

I could have wrote this. It is very similar, only I probably will eventually see Hellboy.

I have no idea what to think of Halle Berry at the moment.

I also have no idea what to think of the upcoming performance of Cat-Woman.

Check out this outfit.

In particular, check out the fashionable rippage on the leather pants.

This makes me go, bleh. Fashion rippage? I couldn't figure out whether this was some extra from Eyes Wide Shut . . . or it was the Versace version of Batman's enemy.

Yeah, Halle Berry is quite the beautiful woman. The costume belongs in a Halloween collection . . . or an adult costume shop.

I dunno, but I really thought the suit they used in that one Batman film was a lot better than this. Women and their belly-button exposure . . . dunno.
