  1. Funny, I just read this thread and thought "When did I register?". Turns out, I registered 16 years ago yesterday. It was the day after my 26th birthday. I registered to enter a discussion about Palpatine being Sodious, as some fans thought they weren't the same for some strange reason. Here I am at 42, eagerly awaiting TFA and can't wait to take my 10 year old daughter to see it. Amazing how time flies.

  2. Frank himself isn´t a very compelling character, no. He´s almost not a character at all. But with the right company he makes for a great story anyway. He can give Daredevil or Spiderman or whoever a look at what they might become if they cross the line. Or he can be the straight man force of nature as Garth Ennis wrote him with an insane rouges gallery around. His Frank was basically a new version of the Saint of Killers from Preacher. Totally without a sense of humour which made him all the funnier in weird situations. Even the few pages Frank got in "Original sins" made me laugh out loud.

  3. Yeah, I'd go with an entire storyarc. With Punisher trying to stay under the radar, keep Daredevil off his trail. He feels he has to use extreme measures to clean up Hell's Kitchen, while this fellow vigilante, the one who took down Fisk, is investigating, getting closer and closer to finding him. Castle is having to continuously stay on the move to remain one step ahead of Daredevil. The entire season being Matt's hunt for this Punisher, as Castle tries to continue his war without getting caught. All while Fisk is plotting his return to power. This would create great tension for the audience.

  4. I remember a suggestion many years ago that where they went wrong with the Punisher, why the character has never worked for long, is that he needs a recurring antagonist. An Inspector Javert to his Valjean, so to speak (although truth be told, Castle is more like the Inspector Javert character, but you know what I mean). Seeing a recurring Daredevil and Punisher rivalry would probably be just what the character needs to really succeed. A regular ideological foil to challenge him.

  6. Everyone is punk until they get married, have kids, get a mortgage, plan for retirement, etc. You know what punk looks like at 50? Iggy Pop.

  7. There are different interpretations of the Punisher, depending on the writer. With some, he's well-intentioned, geniunely motivated by the desire to better the world. With others, he's really no better than the people he opposes, someone who simply enjoys killing, and just happens to go after other killers. I think both interpretations are valid.

  8. That is likely the path they take, also in keeping with a positive spin on Frank, I guess I am just hoping Frank and Matt don't end up fist bumping or having a Yo, Joe! moment even if their target ends up the same person. I think Frank has more to say being an actual villain... being the villain I can understand, rather than the hero that is a badass. I think that is a distinction which, for me at least, makes Frank's appearances with other heroes (anti or not) end up feeling false and forced. Frank posing in Captain America duds is barf. Frank working alongside Spidey is barf. Even Frank work

  9. From my experience with friends and extended family, I have found more than a few who are easily irked by what they perceive as academia (to a degree) / media's insistence on defining German history not by a culture that goes back to antiquity, but almost completely by the actions of one, horror-government in one period of time. They have also not been too fond of the entertainment industry making anyone with a (usually poor) German accent somehow harboring just-under-the-surface, or overt Nazi beliefs. That became the fallback in everything from inane TV series to teenage comedies of the 80s,

  10. So that we can all feel better about ourselves by ridiculing the stupidity of someone else. Otherwise, why bother having the internet?

  11. By that logic I guess when a gay couple buys a house these folks will abandon their house as well. The thing is though is why do morons like this get any kind of attention? Just ignore them.

  14. The Ramones are straight up pop. I mean, sure they're punk but their songs are basically Beach Boys on methamphetamine. That's why they're so famous and their songs still get radio play. Banging pop tunes.

  15. I like me some Sex Pistols now and again, and Ramones, as well. But yeah, other than Iggy, one would almost think those two bands are the ONLY punk bands. My theory is I think its probably because they were the first two that really went main stream, and whose CDs still sell. The Ramones especially get airplay alongside Metallica and Heart, on so many classic rock stations across the country at any given minute. Not to mention both bands have been covered by other bands to death.

  17. I've always viewed the Sex Pistols as being effectively a boy band. Little talent and more about fashion than music.

  18. That demographic is a fraction of the sample size movies generally aim for. If fans alone were enough of a target movies would be a lot more esoteric

  20. heh. When I was driving back from Tucson there was a tornado chaser crew outside a Walmart in Ft Stockton and I wondered if a tornado in OK landed them there. also, more hobbit houses should be built. I don't know why they don't as you wouldn't have to rush to the tornado safe places. You would already be there.
