  1. After thinking about it for awhile, I have a spoilerish question: From a story line stand point, was it at all necessary for John Blake's first name to be revealed as Robin? It just felt like such a cheap *wink wink nudge nudge* to the audience that served no other point than just that. I think it can be argued that since we all know about the comic Robin, we come to the conclusion that he will succeed Bruce as Batman (or the equivalent of), but I thought that was already pretty damn obvious way before that. It could never have happened and I would have been totally cool with it.
  2. If it wasn't for Bane, my opinion of it would be a lot lower. I still enjoyed it though. Quick question, trying to figure out if it was just my screening or a real problem: Did anyone else have a hard time understanding anyone in the movie? Seemed like the music was WAY overpowering when people were trying to talk.
  3. I wonder how long it'll take before this version of the Punisher shows up at conventions. I'm looking at you, MikeyP!
  4. I have a reoccurring gag with a friend where I constantly refer to Ron Perlman as a national treasure. Feels good to have proof about how right I was.
  5. Thanks, guys! Just finishing up the podcast interview. It's been a real great listen!
  6. So I made this in the past couple hours. Tumblr link in case the image doesn't show.
  7. Not to veer too off topic, but Tim, you ever think about releasing a little photo book of some of the pictures you snap at cons or sets? I know Jeff Bridges does for most movies.
  8. I've only encountered three types of negative comments about the short, and they're very much in the minority: People that judge the overall quality of the 2004 Punisher purely on Tom (which is silly, since he was neither the writer, director, nor editor). People with a boner for War Zone (I liked Stevenson as Frank, everything else though... ech) The Dark Knight score used (well... Like I said before, I could have done without) That said, EVERYTHING else has been completely positive. Word of mouth and positive reactions can do a lot for little projects like this.
  9. I'm going to go ahead and second Mike's opinion on the score. It didn't detract from my enjoyment of the short, but I don't think I would have missed it. That said, FINALLY, the character done RIGHT. I always felt Jane and Stevenson did the best with what they were given, but this short shows everyone was on the same page.
  10. Can't wait to see this! Maybe it'll inspire Marvel/Disney to give Tom a few million to do the character right for the first time.
  11. http://www.imdb.com/news/ni31660586/ 95 years old, and active right till the end. I call that a good run.

    I JUST...

    I just made some headway on my Mjolnir prop.
  13. Have I ever told you your costumes are about 20 different kinds of bad ass?
  14. I don't know, as long as it stays in it's own little mini, I'm cool with insanely dumb set ups for Punisher stories. I still love the Archie/Punisher crossover.
  15. No idea if it's true or any details. At the end of the day, if anyone threw something (not tossed) with intention to hit me or someone else, that would make them an ass. I'm not calling Tom an ass since I've not read a single word about it outside of your post; I really have no reason to believe it ever happened. But him being Tom Jane would not give him a free pass if it were true.
  16. Or sepia toned. Dillon's work is pretty gritty and un-glamorous, it could use colouring to compliment it. Not taking anything away from the colourist, but the style is really just serviceable.
  17. I'd love to see it grayscaled or toned. I always thought the colouring on his work left something to be desired.
  18. Was a pilot ever filmed? I never heard anything about casting. Glad it's dead, but I have an odd curiosity to have at least seen it once.
  19. If it's still playing up there I just might catch it and the Avengers again. Besides, there's used dvd stores up there I scour for Mystery Science Theater 3000 boxsets. Ouch, only eight states? You'd think with Miley Cyrus' name attached to it it would get a little wider than that.
  20. It's playing in Akron here in Ohio, about an hour from where I'm at. I can't imagine it'll be there for very long with Dark Shadows coming out this week and Avengers still making bank.
  21. There was so much to love about the Hulk in Avengers.
  22. Nice! Way cool to see your stylistic flair applied to a completely different style. I can tell you had a blast designing it just by looking. Big thumbs up on this one!
  23. The Avengers was just a pure enjoyment film. Like Raffi said, it's not an Oscar award movie (aside from special effects I'd suppose), but not every movie has to be. It was a well done film for fans of the characters that didn't try to be anything it's not. Every character got their moments, with Banner/Hulk being the most satisfying (my opinion at least). Favourite moments (non-spoiler): Everything Mark Ruffalo did The Hulk and Loki's fight scene Thor's quips The second (I guess) end credits scene
