    New Judge Dredd movie

    Has anybody seen the Dredd trailer? I am torn as to rather I want to see the movie or not. I am excited for a new judge dredd more faithful to the comics, but I don't like the re-imagined world they created.

    Things I like....

    It looks like the movie has great atmosphere to it.

    The action is cool

    Dredd doesn't take his helmet off!

    Some gripes so far....

    Why are they using vehicles from the 90s? It set hundreds of years in the future.

    The buildings shown so far don't scream out mega City, I guess I was hoping for a more "Coruscant" vibe to the city. The whole design is bland looking.

    The story presented is eerily similar to the movie The Raid: Redemption (even though Dredd's story should have been locked down long before Raid went into production)

    I just watched the trailer and gotta say. It looks seriously naff.

    Things I like:

    Dredd looks badass

    Things I don't like:

    Mega City one does not look like Mega City One. Surely the producers at least GLANCED at the original comics?!

    The VFX are cheap. Seriously, sticking a bunch of identical skyscrapers on top of an image of an American city and copy pastaing it around is not fun. Also, what's with the lame dynamic FX like smoke?

    The setting is as average as it can be. Take Dredd out and it may as well be Children of Men. The poor judges stand out like sore thumbs.

    The fact that Dredd got taken out of Mega City One and flung into a completely different setting is kinnda of a deal breaker for me.

    Looking forward on hearing other peeps' thoughts on this!
    Blog - Check it out. It's fun.

    Sketchbook - I should really update more often.

    Portfolio - The most fun of them all.

    I guess fucking it up once by misunderstanding the concept isn't enough. Isn't the comic meant to be a dark comedy with irresponsible social commentary and premium gore. Dredd's creators even call him fascist. His costume is designed in reference to the Franco regime. Can't they get somebody like Lloyd Kaufman or anybody that gets the joke to adapt the film. I think it would do as well as Machete or Inglorious Basterds if they went full retard. But I'm guessing this is going to be the next John Carter.

    At least it doesn't have Rob Schneider in it. That has to count for something, right?

    Confession time: the old Judge Dredd movie was a sort of guilty pleasure to me. I thought Sly Stallone makes for a good Judge Dredd. If only he didn't remove his helmet. He's got the jaw for it.

    I watched the old Judge Dredd movie a month or so ago, it was one of my favourite films as a kid and it kinda held up to my memory (if you forgive the really cheesy acting and stuck on fx) but yeah..this trailer doesn't seem that bad.

    I agree the design of Megacity isn't really that imaginative but it's more realistic than most of the way-out-there designs you get in sci-fi, when you consider it's supposed to be a dystopian future where there isn't going to be the money or the manpower to develop a magnificent city like the original, it's more likely going to be boring square high-rises I know this is supposed to be set way in the future and it's a fantasy sci-fi but we've had so many of them it's nice to see something a bit more gritty and realistic for a change.

    tl:dr - I quite like the look of it

    I'm also actually looking forward to it.

    Would prefer it without the tacked on 3d though.

    Heh, I always wished that an 'Unforgiven' era Clint would play Judge Dredd.
    Felt he would be perfect. In the comics Joe Dredd is actually over 50 anyway.

    I'll volunteer as Ms Judge. I don't take any prisoners - ever.

    The trailer seriously sucks. Even if it more realistic, that's not what the audience want. Didn't mind the old film, at least Stallone kicked ass.
