Dolph Lundgren as the Punisher
Tomorrow, September 20, the UW Cinematheque program is holding a screening of The Punisher (1989), followed by a talk with its director (and UW-Madison alum) Mark Goldblatt, who will discuss the film and his career in Hollywood.
Goldblatt is best known as an editor, working as such on The Terminator, Commando, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Starship Troopers, Pearl Harbor, and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. He was Oscar-nominated for editing for Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
I’ve never seen the film — should I go? I’m curious to know what the director will say about it, 20 years later, but I’m not sure I’m curious enough to sit through one of the bad superhero films, before they got good.
