    For pretty much the same reasons that .sketch and zx52hg stated.

    If it ain't broke in the 80s, please, God, don't remake it now with CGI.
    Going to end up as lame as the Fright Night remake.

    But if I'm wrong, I'll gladly eat humble pie, but I kind of doubt it.
    The difference between this and the original Judge Dredd is that
    the original was never great to begin with.

    Can you call Judge Dredd a reboot, though? Maybe rebooting the chances of a film franchise; but I don't think it's so much revisiting an old movie (like Robocop), as making a fresh, new adaptation of the comics.
    ...which is only my opinion.

    Yeah totally agree with you.

    I just wanted to nip that as I am still on the fence about the new Dredd.
    Which is actually CGI heavy.

    Whereas the Robocop remake is just so much irony. Plus, the model
    work and design of the original ED-209 is just too good to be topped.
    Especially with CG.

    But, I must stress, I'm no authority. I'm just stuck in the 80s. So
    maybe I'm just prejudiced...but ever since Lucas lost his fucking
    marbles, (before prequels, I'm talking "special edition" originals
    ...that Jabba in New Hope...) I've become very cynical.

    Even though the old Judge Dredd movie didnt go so well, as a kid I loved it. Plus, who cannot say that Sylvester Stallones impersination and "I am the law!" speech isn't awesome?

    I really hope this doesn't suck.

    If it doesn't, we might get a Grant Morrison written "Rogue Trooper" movie..
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_Trooper#cite_note-1
    I would watch that, even if Sam Worthington is the trooper.

    There are so many amazing 2000ad strips, I can see that Dredd is a logical point to start from but in my nerd fantasy world they'd be doing Rogue Trooper, Durham Red and Slaine only after a giant budget adaptation of Glimmer Rats..

    I was and still am a big fan of the original Judge Dredd comics. Yes it was a Satire of life and the end of the world.. the first movie seem to catch that in Megcite and the who look. Stallones kills the move in many ways as her dumb down Dredd.. Dredd isn't dumb he is living Weapon of Law enforcement. the whole "I am the Law" is what he is a living breathing law book Dredd is part of the first wave of Judges that later change. He believe everyone word he said it he is there to enforce the law ever letter of it.. that being said you can't do it justice in a live action movie ..There is really no way to get the right actor I feel Stallones had the Jaw but who not leave the helmet on no matter how much they wanted it.. he felt no one who know it was him.. (right no one who know from the Bad acting of Rocky playing Dredd it was you Stallones?) This one Dredd look too small too weak to me.. yes the 3D trailer look as bloody as the comic was and still is. Meg City One look weak and not over crowded as it should be. From what been talking with this Script is taken from the idea of the Block war scripts from the comics.. again taking part but not the whole. It's as bad as the first Punisher.. you want it to work but it's just not going to no matter high body count..

    The whole law system in the Judge Dredd book is very scary and dark and surreal and Mocking the legal system of the UK(Not the US). It was an idea of how dark cant the laws get? Meg cities are dark and nasty and the book never let yo forget it but they did aim sick twisted joke to make you laugh at all times.. Some are very inside jokes and made for the people int eh UK vs the US.. I hope at some point who ever own Judge just give it over to say the maker of AKIRA in Japan and say do it right.. and that will just kick ass. ..

    That Robocop viral video reminds me how almost every false utopia science fiction movie starts with city scene where is big screen and overly monotone commercials voice begins with a sentence like "Imagine the future where...". Don't tell please. Just show .

    Velocity: you do know that's Karl Urban, right?

    Worthington's not in this movie.

    Also, the reason for The '95 movie for sucking was Armand Assante was demanding script changes and generally being a dick. The original script was pretty decent, before they removed the helmet and cast Schneider.

    But, nonetheless, the original had the most badass animatronics!

    But, Robocop remake, Judge Dredd remake, Total Recall remake and the resent Spiderman Remake.

    Least the Spiderman remake had Peter Parker acting like a teenager that was interested in women who didn't act like they were from the 1940's

    But there is also a Superman remake as well.

    That's a remake?

    I haven't been following that one, since I'm not a fan of Superman.

    But also, I do agree with Spiderman, even though I'm contradicting myself a bit here. I liked what they did, thought it was pretty well executed on most parts. Peter Parker was actually made believeable rather than just made a stereotypical Nerd. Characters had shades of grey rather than just black and white, people had story and motiv.

    Better than the 2001 one, for sure.

    But, originalilty or lack thereof, too many people reap the benefitsof the industry (from artists (myself included) to drivers and caterers), that it outweights my need for entertainment, so I'll just crawl back to my cave and will continue to nag.

    Keep in mind I'm not talking about Superman Returns. I can't consider that a "remake" as it was more of a story that continued later.

    I'm referring to Man of Steel which is a remake by Zack Snyder http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/168...omic-con.jhtml

    I really liked Spiderman 2, which made SPiderman 3 all the more painful.

    Speaking of Judge Dredd animatronics, I saw some pics of the ABC robot gathering moss in someones garden the other day, now where the hell did i see that...

    Dredd was based on Dirty Harry to some extent, so having an Eastwoodesque voice is pretty legitimate. The fact it's now overused as a caricature of ubertestosterone inflated masculinity, doesn't mean that the ubertestosterone inflated Dredd shouldn't use it. He used to live in the 'Rowdy Yates' area of Mega City one! There is however, no reason Batman should talk like that...
