This Man, This Mustache

Moments before bloodshed

I was there, that's pretty much how it happened

A pretty funny video by Max Landis on the subject of Superman.  I alone count for almost half of the total views.  Watch and like.  If you dare.  Which you do.  Because you dare.

This is not vengeance, this is punishment. Actually this isn't punishment either.

  In order to gear up for The Month of Punishment I thought I would do a quick bonus post about a fantastic Punisher short film series on YouTube.  Done by a great man named Chris Notarile, if you haven't checked his stuff out I highly suggest you do.  He does fantastic short movies on what can only be a minimal budget.  I can safely recommend all of his superhero short films as they are all fantastic and he is awesome playing a more Dark Knight style Joker.  For those of you who aren't a fan of that style of Joker he has done a short film of the more traditional style Joker that is quite good as well.  Take the time to check them all out as they are all well worth seeing.
   But today we focus on The Punisher short films, '79-'82, to watch all of them would take less then 40 minutes and you will be seeing the best Jigsaw ever captured on film in Thomas Daniel (acting wise at least, the make up isn't great but when you consider the budget it's forgivable) and easily one of my favorite Punisher's in Shawn Parr (not many people have played him but he's up there as 2 or 3 depending on how I feel about Thomas Jane that week, and he's number one depending on how I feel about Punisher that week).  If nothing else check out the trailer, which I'm posting first, and support this man by going to his website (the whole series after the jump):

Spider-Man 3 (2007) DVD

Rating: 1 out 5 pumpkin bombs

Plot Synopsis:  Peter Parker is at the highest point in his Spidey career when way too much shit happens in the course of 2+ hours.  Things such as proposing to Mary Jane, breaking up with Mary Jane, fighting Harry Osborn, being best friends with Harry, fighting Harry again, finding out that he killed an innocent man in the form of the person who he thought killed his uncle, killing the actual person who killed his uncle only to find out that that person killed his uncle by accident, turning emo, dancing in the streets, going black and not going back as well as becoming a jazz pianist.  Also plot threads are picked up and thrown like live grenades, characters are corrupted and redeemed and corrupted again just to be redeemed.  Oh and the Venom goes from bad ass to sissy pansy.

Spider-Man 2 (2004) DVD

Rating: 3 out of 5 mechanical nuclear tentacles

Plot Synopsis:  Peter Parker is still having a rough time, because apparently that’s the only time he can have.  When things can’t get any worse he has a total “I swear, this never happens to me” moments when his powers fail and instead of waiting 15 minutes and trying again he just up and quits.  But Doctor Octopus terrorizes the city so it’s time to man the crap up and do what only a Spider-Man can.
