I love this poster and it's bullety skully goodness

Is it sad that I just realized they’ve remade The Punisher into a movie called “Punisher: War Zone?” I hate it how all these sucky directors jumped on the superhero band wagon and decided to make movies. They didn’t even try to make them good; they just thought that people would like them because of the ongoing trend. That’s not how comic geeks work and it’s about time they realized it. Comic readers expect perfection. Why bother going to see a crappy movie rip-off when there are dozens of comics devoted to each character? They’ve already rebooted The Hulk and plan on rebooting Superman. Why not just get it over with and please please please reboot X-men (atleast the 3rd one I mean come on, that’s my only exception.)

Anyway it seems like there was a lot of drama between the directors and producers of this movie. If you look at Wikipedia, you can see what I mean. This movie is supposed to be really dark vs. the original film (this is good because he is you know, the Punisher) and is currently rated R. It starts off with Frank Castle already as the Punisher for several years. There is supposed to be some back story told through flashbacks though. The Punisher will be facing off with Jigsaw in this movie. (Fun fact, originally Spiderman and Nightcrawler stopped Jigsaw from framing the Punisher for the murder of one of Nightcrawler’s old friends.) It’s due in theaters on December 5, 2008.

    There’s something about Reboot making new movies if that makes you feel better. They’re also supposed to be writing a webcomic to hype it up. I’m going to look into that later.

    I just wish if they were going to do reboots of old movies they would do them of things that are interesting, not Superman, though even I have to admit, The Incredible Hulk was pretty good, but the first one was so bad it got me a traffic ticket, so meh. Anyway, yeah, let’s make some good reboots or none at all, that’s my theory.

    If they’d make them good enough the first time around instead of slacking off completely, there’d be no needs for reboots is what I’m saying.
