That was awesome. I was guessing that it was some promo for real justice -- death to real bad thugs, created by Democrap policies -- rather than the governmental occasional punishment.
That clip would be great for a responsible neighborhood watch program, implying guns, cannot be too obvious.
Yeeessss, revenge is best served cold. There needs to be justice like this every once in a while. Effective. The Punisher is my favorite movie and I didn't even know this one was even out. Gotta love it.
I believe that's "The Punisher", but I didn't recognize this. Was there a second movie made and I missed it?
I just looked it up. I did not know there was a sequel. I'm going to see if I can find it on Netflix....probably not there. I loved the first one.
I just discovered the Google "verbatim" thingy. Man, I wish they'd have made that more widely known.
Look under "Search Tools" (click on that, and when it displays the search tools, the word "verbaitm" is near the bottom).
A TON of my searches lately have been useless because Google would look for inappropriate words and phrases, even when I put quotes around stuff. Also, Google evidently disabled the old "+" sign modifier trick. Verbatim helps cut out a lot of invalid results.
Doesn't help with the fact that Google ignores really old pages these days.
So awesome! A hero we all want/need in this era of sick twisted rejects or otherwise known as liberal democrats....lol!
I know one person who can tell you the difference between justice and punishment.
Time for the next political distraction. Let's see how she likes it, when she's hounded and hectored by questions she doesn't think relevant to her political situation.
Dude, this is old.
In any event, I didn't like it, at all. Being a Punisher reader, there's no way he'd stand back, and just let people get hurt like this one did, in this stupid story about 'giving up'. Just a year ago, the Marine racked up a 48,502 people, ranging from his first issue, to what was current, back then.
I wasn't as big a fan of Tom Jane's rendition, as I was Ray Stevenson's.
Believe it or not, I didn't even know about the sequel. I loved the first movie. I'm going to look for the second on Netflix and hopefully I'm not disappointed.
I never read more than a handful of Punisher comics. I could tell it needed really first class writing to bring the character from the lower tiers of comic book "heroes." Back then, it was kind of plodding and out-of-sync with the push toward all things Sci-Fi (even the westerns had space aliens in 'em). Same problem The Batman series had until they brought out the Dark Knight stuff.
Seems like they must have done it if the character has this high a profile.
Mrs. WFM just asked me if I had seen the pictures of Harry with that naked girl.
I replied, "Harry Reid with a naked girl? Who was she? Honey Boo Boo?"
"No, Silly," she answered, "Not Harry the Reid, Harry the Prince!"
That brings up the main point: What is Harry the Prince's last name? Royal? England? King? Is he a descendant of Rodney King? 23% of Compton CA is...
His proper name is Prince Henry of Wales. As a British prince, he holds no surname -- his family is the House of Windsor, but it's not really proper to call him "Harry Windsor". However, in his role as a soldier in the military, he is known as "Captain Harry Wales".
You ABSOLUTELY must NOT promote this scoop.
You are preying on the vulnerability within every man to seek retribution for injustice.
This is indeed a time in history when many feel powerless in the hands of the corrupt who have obtained control of ‘the levers of power’. This may in fact be the last hour of the greatest trial our Constitutional Republic has endured, but if we are to prevail, we cannot now abandon those virtues upon which this nation was founded.
Should John Adams have refused to defend the British soldiers who fired on the Mob in Boston?
Would you condemn the vigilante tactics of Occupy Wall Street in 100 posts, feeling justified in your condescending disapproval of their mob justice, then turn and destroy you credibility by advocating vigilante justice by an individual ‘punisher’?
Or…have you followed the logic of George Bush, “I had to violate the free market to save it”?
Maybe you really do want Sarah Palin to do all your heavy lifting.
I expect this from Quinton Tarantino (see Inglorious Baxxxxxx). We all know of the atrocities performed under the NAZI regime and we have a visceral reaction to their retelling. However, when script writers craft such a retelling under a shroud of legitimacy, whether it is the documented history of war crimes or a plausible American ghetto crime, it awakens indignation and stirs outrage into frenzy. How easily then it is for the viewer to follow the script writer careening into a course of action that the viewer would never have otherwise accepted. The poison pill has been administered and you never knew it because, after all,….it’s just a movie.
I have enjoyed your website for a long time, but do not dare again to motivate me to wrath with an evocative clip such as this. No amount of kitty videos and soldier’s puppies will assuage displeasure at such manipulation.
“For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God” James 1:20
“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” Romans 12:19
"do not dare again to motivate me to wrath?" Aren't you talking out of both sides of your mouth? Frankly, the idea of beating to a pulp those gangs who would torture a child makes me feel warm all over. Can't say I feel that comfortable riding the subway in my hometown with my kids given the flash gang predators.
Than again it's just a movie.
Are you kidding me? Do you take things that seriously? Then you decide you're are on some moral high horse with the Bible verses. How high minded of you. Geez.
You've been here a long time so I'll be nice. but seriously, if this clip motivates you to wrath, that's on you. it's just a superhero flick.
You are reading WAAAAAYYY too much into it.
Perhaps you will ban me from this site and /or delete this post, do as you will, but (although I disagree with the logic I agree in principle) I have to stand with porightscoopfan on this.
Like K-Bob I wish I had brain bleach. In the future I will take your warnings more seriously. But why only warn the young?
Perhaps you will think I too am taking this to seriously. It's only entertainment after all... yes, but it glorifies all that is wrong in society and causes those that watch it to become jaded and desensitized.
"The only foundation of a free Constitution, is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People, in a great Measure, than they have it now. They may change their Rulers, and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty."
"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our constitution as a whale goes through a net."
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
- John Adams
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
- George Washington
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
- Benjamin Franklin
I personally find nothing good, virtuous, praiseworthy or of good report in this type of entertainment. If we here truly call ourselves Christians and support the Constitution, liberty and all that they stand for, we really should hold ourselves to a higher standard. We cannot be hypocritical in our standards. IMO, this does not bring us closer to GOD but is repellant to the spirit.
FULL DISCLOSURE - I don't watch TV, PG13 or R and yes I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I get that point of view, and I have no problem with it at all. I certainly believe that conservative principles would be of benefit to the urban crime problem and the kids in those communities before or after they are corrupted. On the other hand, how are we to treat the thugs that are happy to beat us to a pulp in front of our kids? Is it OK to cheer if the police blast the scum who are maiming my child or my neighbors'? What's the plan when it happens to one of us? I won't be taking prisoners, that's for sure - I'll be sending a message to the next group of thugs.
Well then it would seem we are in agreement for the most part, and I apologize for the "twinkly, rainbow" remark, that wasn't fair. I think our difference is what constitutes as filth and virtue. I consider the above video shows real virtue and character. Consider the contrast between the protagonist and the villain. The protagonist is shown as someone who doesn't like what is going in the street, but like so many he does nothing at first, preferring to mind his own affairs. While the villain is a ruthless thug who beats women and children, and uses intimidation and fear to control the innocent in the neighborhood. Then we are introduced to a character (Ron Pearlman) who tells us the cost of intervention, he tried to stop the violence, was crippled, and now has lost his faith in humanity. This is what finally motivates our Hero to action. Is it his fight, no, but there is no one else. Then one man takes on a gang of many, to protect the weak, and defend the helpless. To me, that is virtue.
I agree there is a time to every season. however you are mistaking me for someone else if you think I am "some twinkly, rainbow christian who thinks that if we just talked and hugged we could work everything out and then world be all sunshine and rainbows". I am quite the opposite.
I know also that we are all (especially myself) fallen, that said I don't feel you can win a Godly fight using evil practices.
We are either drawing closer to God of farther away. Our actions and choices (especially the small seemingly inconsequential ones) reveal who we really are and what is most important to us. It's my opinion that we should embrace VIRTUE not filth.
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven"
ecc., chap 3.
I would like to be some twinkly, rainbow christian who thinks that if we just talked and hugged we could work everything out and then world be all sunshine and rainbows, but the scriptures illustrate to me that this a fallen world. As a man who hungers for righteousness, I want to see justice in an unjust world. Frank Castle is the artistic embodiment of that hunger. It's a common theme among American Cinema, Art, and Literature. The Shepard must guard his flock with the rod and staff,
and sometimes, we sell our cloaks and buy swords.
WOW.... JUST WOW! Is this being made into a movie 'The Punisher?' Seriously, that vengeance action gave me a thrill up my leg! Thanks, Scoop! GREAT stuff!
I've got the same Spiderco knife they pulled on the kid. Glad to see it's thug approved.
The are supposed to be doing a remake of Death Wish. If it's done right it will be a smash hit with the mood the country is currently in.
Wouldn't it be unusual if we had an Attorney General that upheld the law rather pretend that 1000s of innocent people that are being murdered don't exist while he looks the other way and plays his silly race games. He's just another incompetent member of the Ship of Fools Obama has leading us to rock bottom..
Finally another Punisher! The very first one (Dolph lundgren) was not to awful, the second one (With Thomas Jane) wasn't really to bad, but I am EXTREMELY EXCITED over this one!
Back in the day I was an avid collector of Punisher, Punisher war journal, and the Punisher Armory! Its about time they take another crack at the most politically incorrect character in the Marvel Universe!
