I watched "The Punisher" tonight.  Apparently the concept was to punish the audience.  I thought it was never going to end.  Was it that bad back in 2004? It couldn't make up it's mind if it was a funny action movie or a serious, violent flick.  
I no longer long for the old view!

I've never seen the Punisher movie and don't have a strong urge to rectify that (though I seem to be one of the few people who liked the Ben Affleck Daredevil movie, which was from the same period). Doesn't Marvel have a Punisher series on Netflix now? Maybe it's an attempt to correct this mistake, sort of the same way their Daredevil series is correcting the Ben Affleck "mistake."

I don't really care for the character of The Punisher at all.  I guess the only time he kinda worked for me was in limited use in Frank Miller's great run on Daredevil (back when Miller was good).  But he's had a number of screen appearances--all pretty much quickly forgotten until now with Netflix where I gather he was so popular on Daredevil Season 1 that they did decide to give him a show (I'm behind on the Netflix/Marvel shows, but I don't think it's premiered yet).

(OK, I checked--it premiers in two weeks).

Dolph Lundgren starred in a 1989 version which had him up against the Yakuza because... why not?  It wasn't, apparently, much like the comics, really... 

I believe fans liked the 2004 version quite a bit, overall, but... I've never seen it.

I'm pretty sure The Punisher doesn't appear until Daredevil Season Two (which I haven't watched, because I really wasn't that enamored with Season One).

I came across this listicle yesterday and ended up enjoying its eighth item, a feature-length, crowd-financed 2011 dance film (and valentine to NYC) that is guaranteed to lift your mood:
