Merry Christmas, Punisher fans! For this Yuletide season, we have gifted you with an extra-large episode that deals with our deep opinions about the three official Punisher movies.
Introduction – Jake and I start with what could be the worst opening ever before we catch up on our heart-warming Christmas tales. We then open our gifts we sent each other on the air!
News – There’s a bunch of new Punisher fan films new and upcoming, and we want you all to check ’em out!
- First on the list is the fan-animated Do Not Fall in New York City film by Luis Junquera. I really enjoyed the style and “flow” of this one. The film has blown up on a lot of comic book news sites, and here is his response.
- Indy filmmaker Chris Notarile has created four Punisher fan films, Punisher ’79-’82. Here is a Youtube playlist that has all of them, but Punisher ’80 was taken down by Youtube. You can find that film (and the rest) on his superhero page.
- Actor/director Chris Warner has successfully Kickstarted a studio-quality Punisher short! We’ll keep you updated as the film continues production.
Mail Call – Jesse Mack asks us what Punisher story arc we’d like to see adapted to a new Marvel movie. Jacob gives us a trilogy of MAX titles, and while I like the idea, I recommend a different format for a Punisher movie.
Dane and Jake Go to the Movies – It took 34 episodes, but we’re finally doing it. We’re bum-rushing the three Punisher movies that everyone clamored for but never quite got it right. And yet, they each have their charms.
Discharge Papers – Jake discusses his finishing of the Loeb’s Long Halloween run, and his replay of Final Fantasy 8. I recommend the book Mastery from Robert Greene, so you can go from chump to champ at whatever you do in life. I also recommend the game Bastion, which is like Diablo if your character was in a colorful, utterly destroyed society.
