The production of THE PUNISHER closely preceded Tim Burton's BATMAN. Not the other way around.

Both films have more in common than meets the eyes, watch them back to back to see how! ;)

Pretty good article even though I don't agree with all of it.

2-discs set including:
- the Uncut theatrical release,
- the R-rated version,

Special packaging,
booklet (program reprint?),
mini-poster,

and existing extras produced from the German release:
- director's commentary,
- the longer workprint cut,
- behind the scenes reel (aka "gag reel"),
- trailers

Official page from distributor:
http://www.happinet-p.com/jp3/releases/HPXR-255

From Google Translate, it seems the workprint cut will be featured in 2 versions, the vintage Beta tape transfer, and a re-edit with the available HD footage from the final feature film...

I can't say enough how much I love the ending, which at the time left a mark in the 10-11 year-old me...
It makes the movie for me wouldn't be the same without it.

When I was a kid, a large portion of my film exposure came from television airings. This also, thankfully, skewed my view of film success and importance. With Rocky IV, Masters of the Universe and Red Scorpion all making appearances rather frequently, I accepted Dolph Lundgren as my favorite major movie star.

I mean, he was He-Man, that’s an important actor.

I would eventually stumble upon an airing of New World Pictures’ The Punisher. Chances are I would have liked it anyway, I mean, it was Dolph Lundgren playing The Punisher. My late Eighties and early Nineties heart was already a-flutter. However, over the years I’ve discovered that I genuinely appreciate the second Marvel Comics’ theatrical film. It might also be the best of Frank Castle’s theatrical turns.

Anyway, looking at The Punisher like it should be a poor example of filmmaking is a huge mistake, and I recommend checking it out.

I do have one quick warning. Some older players, including one of mine, have some difficulty with the theatrical trailer and gag reel. When I switched to a player with more recent hardware (and likely firmware), they worked just fine.

This loaded version of The Punisher is available exclusively through imported Blu-Ray. Amazon currently has it available at a reasonable price, so I’d recommend snagging it while you can.

The editing phase! Finally, one step closer to actually having a copy my uncultured, uno lingual self can read.

I shall now dance quietly in the corner, please pay no attention to me.

That's the probably the longest, most tedious phase, revising, polishing and proofreading the text over and over to the point where you might miss stuff because you can recite it by heart...! And I'm still adding a bit of content. In all humbleness, I'm proud of it and I think some people are gonna be surprised...

Please, feel free to dance your socks off! ;)

I know all about editing, editing is my least favorite part. I used to edit audio for a church, and I did some editing for a few tribute videos I made. I also had to do some script editing for sunday school as well.

Though the editing phase usually indicated I was nearly finished, in a small way it was very satisfying.

Anyway, I will be eagerly, and patiently awaiting the final product.

Yeah, it sure is providing some satisfaction (and eager anticipation of having it done and out in the world) it takes shape and gets closer to the end project.

I don't know who's more eager me or you. Either way, if you get discouraged, I am here cheering on. Letter by letter, word by word, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph and of course page by page.

Looking out the various numbers available online, they can't agree on Lundgren's killcount tab that goes from 60 to 76 to 91...
