I saw The Punisher movie. It was entertaining, but I think they might have tried too hard to stick with the comic book theme in parts. I’ve heard of some people completely hating it, but I didn’t think it was all that bad. If you’re a fan of The Punisher comic book series, you’ll get a kick out of the movie. It’s violent and a lot of people die as one might expect. Thomas Jane, the actor they picked for the title role does a good job and captures the character well. John Travolta never seems especially menacing to me, but he does manage to feel at least a little slimy in his role as the bad guy. Overall, it was a fun movie, but don’t go into it expecting much.

On this date in 1881, Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain. The birthday is shared with Steve Miller (born 1943) and the founder of McDonald’s (Ray Kroc, born 1902). Weird mixture.
