Episode 31 - The Punisher (1989)

The 80s. The Golden Age of action flicks, before the PC police decided there needed to be justification for every single shot fired in a movie. As the decade winded down, along came a film that was so badass, the US wouldn't dare distribute it. Ladies and gentlemen: Dolph Lundgren's THE PUNISHER, the truest version of the character, more dangerous than that wimp Thomas Jane and way hotter than that dude who played him in WAR ZONE.

Join Alex and Julio as they pine for the good ol' days when the bad guys were irredeemable scumbags and the good guys could just shoot them in the face and walk away!

- It's not like AMC's PREACHER needs our help to stay on the air, but maybe some of you need our help to decide to give it a shot.

- You don't need to listen to FILMSPOTTING episodes in order, so you can jump straight into their 600th episode and join their celebration.

- Not a plug, but a post-recording mea culpa: Yes, the Thomas Jane Punisher is rated R, not PG-13. Julio got it wrong (over and over again!). His excuse is that the movie's so dull, it feels like it's PG-13. There, that works, right?

Now, don't lie: you are DYING to check out the 1989 Punisher now, aren't you? We don't blame you. And if you want to thank us for this, the best way is to find us on iTunes and rate/review/subscribe to the show. Hop on that super cool 80s motorcycle and get going!
