  1. It didn't need that reminder, it honestly made it a bit distracting. Besides, I don't put The Dark Knight on pedastal like most fanboys, take Iron Man, that movie came out a good two months before The Dark Knight, and showed a serious quality approach to the character. But I'm digressing. I honestly think it would have worked a lot better without music, just let the ambience of the urban enviroment soak in before all the bone crushing, and bloodshed.


    I'm not a fanboy, just a cinephile, and TDK deserves all the praise it gets. It changed the genre from solid popcorn to serious cinema. Iron Man's a good film, but goes nowhere near the level of complexity TDK explores. Heck, TDK's the reason we're back to 10 Best Picture Nominees instead of 5. There's never been a comic book movie to go that distance before. Nolan's a true auteur though, so it really shouldn't be that surprising.


    DIRTY LAUNDRY is very Nolan-esque.

  2. The TDK score to me at least is a reminder that this short represents a serious approach to the character, with an emphasis on quality (which is what Nolan's Batman films did for the genre).


    Jane said the following on Film School Rejects:


    “I wanted to make a fan film for a character I’ve always loved and believed in – a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It’s been a blast to be a part of from start to finish —we hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.” —Thomas Jane

  3. 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.


    Marvel can easily do what Burton did with the first Batman film & just make a Punisher movie where Castle is already an established vigilante. No need to do an origin film again. FOX is doing the same thing with Mangold's Wolverine film.

  4. [in a nutshell] a tasty trip through middle-age hell that bravely showcases the cinematic weight of its actors, its a truly bold effort by Pellington, wonderfully brought to life by the delicious madness of Thomas Jane and served with a shot of abstract. 8/10.
