  1. Just received my copy yesterday and I can't believe it, but it EXCEEDED my expectations. I found myself throughout the evening just flipping it open to a new page and looking at a couple pages at a time just to soak it all in slowly, even though I wanted to just devour the book all at once. Congratulations Tim, this is the treatment your artwork deserves. I've been a fan of yours since the hellblazer covers, and even though i've followed you faithfully, getting a chance to see all this artwork really makes me appreciate a guy like you who has devoted himself to the craft the way you
  2. One thought. Is it just me, or is it completely stupid for people to still be comparing ray stevenson's punisher to ANY stephen segal character? This punisher would just sit there and wait for Segal's slow bloated ass to come close enough, and blow his head off at point blank range and then just walk away without uttering some stupid catch phrase I do however hope that this movie ushers in a new era of over the top b-action flicks that don't take themselves too seriously. As much as I love the new james bond and the bourne character, it's nice to have a new guy in town who just takes
  3. Haven't posted in this thread in a very long time, but now that the film is finally here, I figure I'd throw in my .02 I saw the film yesterday and I've gotta say, I don't love or hate this movie. To me, it's head and shoulders above the 2004 film. Everything that they did wrong, this version got right, and everything the 2004 version did right, this version did even better. That being said, to me, this is far from a good movie. In fact, after seeing it, I wish certain things could have been done differently, because there is the core of a good movie here, but they got carried away wi
  4. Love the podcast, and was excited to see the two new episodes. This stuff may have been covered already, but after listening to all of the episodes, I think it'd be interesting to hear your take. 1) Who are some of your favorite artists, both in and out of comics? 2) Directors you'd like to work with on a dream movie job. Dead or alive 3) Thought process behind some of your more popular covers. i feel like so many of the personal stuff has been covered, and your best podcasts have been the one's where you and tom get on a subject and just go off.
  5. See, to me, the inclusion of frank's whole family just rubbed me the wrong way as well. LIke I said before, I'm a long time fan of the character, and for years, the origin stayed the same. Innocent family minding their own business, with no connections to the mob happens upon something they shouldn't see. As a result, they're murdered, but the bad guys made a mistake, they didn't do a good enough job and one of them lived, just so happens that the one that lived is a badass soldier who decided to try to right all the wrongs. Flash forward to the 2004 film. Frank is law enforcement, H
  6. There's nothing like a long weekend to add more drama to an already overly dramatic thread After thinking about all the different "arguments" going on about this movie, and really, any comic book movie, I've started to realize, that maybe this is what makes comics, and the movies made about them, so great (or not so great depending on your POV). I mean, look at the punisher for instance. I've been reading this character since punisher #11, way back in I think 1986 or 87. Since then, the character has had countless creative teams come in and tear him down and build him back up. S
  7. i still don't understand why this matters so much to you. If she's involved or not, you've already said you think the movie is going to be shit.
  8. Thomas>> I just looked over your post asking about for a release from LGF about Lexi and all that. When has a studio ever issued a press release to address internet rumors? Steve Gainer came on here and specifically addressed this, but it's like you don't WANT to believe it. Really though, who cares? If she's on the movie or not, you've made up your mind about this movie, and you did so a long time ago, is any of this going to change that?
  9. God, this thread has taken so many twists and turns since the last time i posted, I almost feel like it should be broken down and turned into multiple threads So, I'm not even going to bother addressing any of the topics. However, after reading Tom Jane's last post, it got me thinking and considering everyone posting in this thread seems to have a specific movie in mind that they'd like to see, I want to pose a challenge to all of you. Describe your perfect punisher movie. Don't just say it would be LIKE this or LIKE that. Hash out a basic plot like Jane did. If this sounds stup
  10. I'll take the second option, and I'm 28. From the looks of the other thread, I don't think that there's ever been a movie in the history of cinema that has evoked this much emotion from a trailer
  11. Couple things: First off, I'm still perplexed as to why being muscular equals good acting or a good actor. Look at denzel Washington in Man on fire. Not ripped, but scary as hell. I think we're getting into overboard nitpicking here, but who am i to judge. You know, the more I think about it, and having been a comic fan for so long, and a punisher fan for just as long, I think that in order for this movie to work, it can't be all about his origin. Not to beat a dead horse, but look at Man On Fire, great revenge movie, and you get just enough backstory about Denzel to know that so
  12. After thinking about, I think my main beef with the 2004 movie is the plot. Let me preface this by saying that I began reading the punisher as a little kid, I was in 3rd grade, and i bought punisher #11 off the rack, and it just so happened that in that issue, they recapped his origin in the middle of a mission. THe thought of a pretty much random act of violence making a man snap and want to punish anyone who did wrong was an interesting concept. This is where the movie just lost me. Why make the saint's almost have a logical reason to go after castle. Why take away the one thing
  13. To be honest with you......I wish I had, it may have actually been watchable Seriously though, I think the reason I hate the movie so much is because I was really looking forward to it before it came out. All the pre-release stuff just looked so cool, and i was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt, but it just came nowhere near the expectation I had for it. I think, in the hands of a different director and with some changes to the actual plot of the movie, it could have been better. I actually like the idea of a punisher movie being a modern day western, or a throwback to
  14. Wow, it's amazing how much this thread has grown since I last posted. Let's all thank Thomas Logan for the wonderful Dolph Lundgren tribute. Lundgrens' parents don't even adore him that much. I'd still like to hear exactly why I'm a moron as well. Back on topic, I like the rest of those teaser posters, I think they're at least going for a specific feeling for the film from the advertising, and with the success of the rest of the Marvel Films, I'm interested to see how they approach this as it's not the easiest sell to a broad audience. Also, regarding the whole tough guy/actio
  15. Have any of you seen Ray Stevenson in the movie "Outpost" He's the one bright spot in the movie, and he plays a military badass. I really don't know what anyone could base a negative opinion of him on, because everything I've seen of the guy, he seems very suited to the punisher. a few comments on the previous Punisher movies though. I guess these movies are just like any other movie, in the sense that no matter how bad or good they are, people will always have some kind of affection towards them. They're both awful movies, no matter how you slice it. The lundgren one was just a pr
