Well I thought both of those had good scripts but the Punisher just felt like it wasn't really related to the comics at all. They probably would have been able to call it something different and use 99% of the same script and still have a great movie. The Punisher War Zone movie DID suck because of the awful script, though. So as long as a script is good, they can throw the worst director into it and it'll still be good. I mean, look at Hulk directed by Ang Lee; everyone hated it, not because of the director doing a bad job, but because the script was terrible. The guy was a great director but he had a poor script to work with and no matter how hard he tried, it didn't work. So the DMC movie, if the script is good enough, will rock no matter who directs it. Usually though, movie scripts are starting to get worse. They use the same writers over and over and they just can't keep doing as good a job. They need to bring in new people to keep things fresh.
