#Dirty Laundry

So, Thomas Jane, the star of the 2004 Punisher movie, made a Punisher fan film.

I only found out about this through a Comics Alliance article.

Like Chris Sims says, it provides a bridge from Frank Castle being a guy who's avenging his family to him being a guy who's going to start wasting crooks on a regular basis. 

It reads like one chapter in the hero's journey, so despite the fact that it's a satisfactory and self-contained story, it does feel like something is missing (something besides a full sequel to the 2004 Punisher movie). None the less, it's a fun ten minutes.

Intense - the 2004 movie like that? Pretty awesome that he made a fan movie for his own character.

For some lighter fare, also found through comic-related means:
Trailer Park Heroes (part 1)
Trailer Park Heroes (part 2)
Trailer Park Heroes (part 3)

Eh. The 2004 movie kills his entire family(...) and the Captain from SeaQuest(!) and the villains are villainous, but there aren't people getting raped and killed in the street. Certainly, Frank Castle is less smoothly choreographed street berserker breaking men made of cherry pie filling and balsa wood, and more a ruthless architect dismantling a criminal enterprise as if it were made from cherry pie filling and balsa wood.

You should see it. It's good.
