  1. Nobody singles out Michael France because he is in no way responsible for what came out, even Hensleigh said he didn't know why France got to share credit as I remember. France had Jigsaw in the script (he mentioned this in an interview, apparently Jigsaw took deforming injury after deforming injury until he finally got killed,) he had BRUNO COSTA in the script... but he also had Frank's father as a former hitman nicknamed the Punisher, and Frank going undercover to work for Costa as I understood it. The fact that he ripped out the stupid hitman plot AND faithful elements like Costa and J
  2. I love irony... Steve's post is a great addition to PWZ Truth. I'm very happy that the rumored 82 minute run time was somewhat shorter than the current edit. What I don't like is that a lot of posters here (not Guard #1 in particular) hate this film, and love jumping on board for the "trainwreck" quotes that Gainer is taking issue with about Lexi's work. Anyhow, I don't particularly like being here, but I thought maybe you all could use a touch of clarification.
  3. Forum Edit - Tim... did you see anything LG passed along about Lexi, to character assassination sites like IESB.net, Joe Drake's chief minions? That her film was a trainwreck, that Gale Anne Hurd was saving it from disaster, that the dialogue was unimaginable? You know as well as I do that LG and even Hurd saw everything Lexi did along the way... there's no way that film, with that many people watching, came out to be something they didn't expect. Where were you when she was the one being wailed on by the slander campaign hammer? Difference is, her own bosses threw her to the dogs... I'm
  4. Forum Edit - I've removed some the main offensive comments and am trying to leave enough so that the following discussion has bearing. - TB I haven't hung around here in quite awhile and have lost nothing for it. It's too bad for the fans of Punisher comics that somebody I used to have respect for (as recently as 2007), Thomas Jane, has such a chip on his shoulder... even Tim Bradstreet sits idly by while Lexi Alexander twists in the wind... somebody he praised and collaborated with in what sounds like significant detail. What the fuck is going on here? Did you at least make sure that
  5. I am not an artist by any means but maybe I can help a little. Forgive me if I tell you something you already know! First, you'll want to duplicate the main image on to a second layer. On the old layer (the background) just select everything and delete it (keep the layer though - you'll need a blank white layer anyway!) Back to the newer layer - you'll want to change the contrast somewhat to make the lines dark enough so that the program can tell them apart from the white areas (assuming they aren't already.) You could maybe play with brightness and contrast, but I'd recommend using whate
  6. Well... the vest really was the best thing on screen in the last one. That's the look that says "that's it, I'm done screwing around." The look for Castle in War Zone is pretty much the look I was hoping for. Somebody on SHH nailed it... he looks like Castle did in the final issue of "Kitchen Irish," which is ready to fight in cold conditions.
  7. I think Stevenson does look pretty intimidating. Where Jane had a really great "pissed and not letting it go" look to him (particularly the final fight scene, great expressions) Stevenson comes to it with a strong "I'm going to get you and there's nothing you can do to stop it" look to him. He looks like he will do whatever he has to in order to put his enemies in the ground. The former is more of a classic Punisher thing (he was REALLY angry, but he had a lot of lines he wouldn't cross.) The latter is more of an Ennis thing. Both can be supported by the comics. We've only seen a little b
  8. Yeah, god damn them for making a skull that looks like some kind of head! Those bitches. I agree about Stevenson looking robotic. He's not even moving in these three new videos! What is wrong with Lexi Alexander for allowing him to just stand there?
  9. Did LGF ever buy their own rights to the character, or did they just get them by buying Artisan?
  10. Yeah, actually, I manipped Tim's cover (the Mother Russia one) to have Stevenson's face on it. On my own behalf and on the behalf of everybody else who used Tim's art for their manips, it's because he's the definitive Punisher artist of this decade... the work speaks for itself. They're obviously manips and obviously not meant to claim credit for his work. We use them because they kick ass. If Tim wants me to take down the image, I will do so out of total respect for him.
  11. Great covers you've illustrated, like them a lot. Chad Ward's look pretty nice as well... for some reason, I didn't realize that book publishers had such high interest in a good looking cover (which is like "DUH" looking back.) Guess I'm not spending enough time in the book store.
  12. I wonder if the movie will be nearly as violent as the game, there were some pretty brutal interrogations in there.
  13. Bahahaha... no offense, but... apparently not. When you release a movie has a big effect on how much money it makes, and that's the bottom line for the studio. Horror movies don't do well at Thanksgiving either. So, even being a critical success, the odds were against it doing well at the box office. I don't know who planned that release date but they should've bumped it back or moved it forward.
  14. I largely agree, I'd way rather have him in control of the things around him... that's the appeal of the character at this point in his evolution. Kind of like Stevenson said recently about him being a predator, he's definitely best portrayed as the hunter. In some of the older comics when he's not at all in control and just reacting again and again (see Mike Baron's comics, but for the love of god try to borrow them and not pay for the little terrors ) it's sort of draining. He'll probably have control for most of the movie (just plain taking out the garbage) but this seems to be how they de
  15. This seems like a pretty common disagreement... over at the GPA, we duked it out months ago and got it out of the way. :-) I personally don't mind the storyline... that's not to say I would have put it in if I magically got editorial control, but there's enough evidence in the comic to support that this, one day, could have happened. Castle's always used varying degrees of prep work. While he regularly enough seems to know the name of every gangster he mows down, there are those instances where he has no choice but to take out somebody who's drawing a bead on him that he doesn't know.
