    I liket he Punisher so far. Its not perfect but a decent film and it seems more like a Punisher film than just action film featuring guy with skull on chest.

    Punisher or Punisher: Warzone?

    There's a pretty big difference, in my eyes at least.

    Two complete different takes on the character. I enjoyed each movie in a different way.

    I'm pretty easily amused (I watch Smallville), but Warzone just was too much (or not enough?) for me.

    I'm sad that it did as poorly as it did, however.

    It reminded me a lot of Shooter, with Clive Owen.

    Also, Batman - The Brave and the Bold was pretty freaking awesome. Looking forward to the multiverse episode.

    The guy def looked like the Punisher though, like I could see him being the go to guy for it, he had the killer who breaks around kids down pretty well. I dunno anything about Jigsaw but he seemed crazy for the sake of crazy and his brother didn't add much of anything, its like they just wanted a parkour fight.

    Shoot 'em up.

    I saw that movie on the glowing recommendation of many PA'ers.

    I no longer speak to those PA'ers.*

    This is the one time in recent memory they have failed me so thoroughly.

    Why didn't you like Shooter? I figure that if someone wasn't interested in over the top gun violence, they wouldn't have thought to watch it in the first place.

    Rampant misogyny, going so far over the top that they had to create a new top over which they might aim, etc. It's like Crank in that regard; 90 minutes of over the top violence that just doesn't quite cater to my prefered style of cinema.

    I don't fault people for liking it, but while it didn't prompt me to walk out, it just wasn't for me.

    Further edit: I have nothing against over the top gun violence. The Die Hard series has plenty of silly gun shenanigans and violent moments across it, but I love 'em all the same.

    Aye, Angry. Because it's been mentioned twice by two seperate people, I'm talking about Shoot 'em Up, not Shooter.

    I've heard the latter is quite good, and based on a series of books a friend of mine read frequently.

    Yeah, it was pretty much a live action, very violent, Looney Tunes episode.

    I really loved the entire movie. It was fun, had me cracking up the entire time, and I dug their choice of music for each action piece.

    Shoot 'Em Up was enjoyable for me, probably because of the fact it was so deliberately over the top and cartoony (I knew about the Elmer Fudd/Bugs Bunny dynamic before I watched it). While I liked the look of Castle, the whole neon, bright lights thing was a bit jarring and the story was basically non-existent.

    the lactating hooker also makes much more sense



    edit- to be fair, that hooker was played by monica belluci. hellooo nurse!


    actually, that whole movie had actors way outside of its league. clive owen, paul giamatti, and monica bellucci in a weird cartoon ultra-violence porn? it was sort of the cinematic equivalent seeing billy bob thornton with angelina jolie, or tim burton with helena bonham carter

    the voice of the joker is really ringing a bell, but i can't quite figure out why. imdb doesn't seem to have a listing for him, though i do see that aquaman was voiced by john di maggio (thus explaining why he is awesome) and that they brought back billy west for skeets! yay skeets!

    anyway, that scene of joker looking at the trophy room and flashing back to the good times was pretty great.

    Jeff Bennett.

    A pretty experience voice actor with nothing real memorable.

    Highlights include:
    Dad from Dexter's Lab, Future Action Dexter from the made for TV movie, The Creeper from The New Batman Adventures

    EDIT: and Petrie from land Before Time XII

    They kinda had to make a crazy deal like that. Nick Fury is the glue that holds the new Marvel move universe together. You see him in Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America non-comic reading people may accept that he is the reasons they all become The Avengers.

    It's one big world that is just show in a bunch of different movies.
