    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.

    It had a great production value, it could have been something amazing.
    Mean Machine was done well, the angel gang should have been the
    main antagonists. Rico is a very forgettable villain in the comics as well.

    Great cast, Max von Sydow (one of my all time favourite actors) and
    Jürgen Prochnow, another fantastic actor and I've always thought
    Assante was underrated. Great sets, costumes, effects (Hammerstein!)...

    Unfortunately I think a lot of mid-90s cinema was hit and miss. With
    adaptions being real big misses.

    For me, the most unforgivable sin was Stallone removing his helmet. I'm
    a big 2000AD fan, but you don't even have to be to know that Dredd NEVER
    takes off his helmet. But Sly could not wait to get it off fast enough.

    And as mentioned, Schneider.

    Interesting, a female villain. Is she the type that can carry her own and is a very smart leader? I love villains that look like they can hold their own and can command a posse, like Magneto (in later comics).

    You have villains that surround themselves with people, but wonder how the hell they got top position, and someone could just off them at anytime because they're annoying.

    So I wondering how this plays out.

    From what I've seen in the trailer, she looks pretty bad-ass.
    And not a stereotypical hot in leathers bad girl, just one dangerous lady.

    I haven't ever seen a Judge Dredd comic.
    I saw the old movie, when I was a kid and thought that that was great, and even got my hands on the video game because my dad was a fan.That said, I'm not so worried about it failing as a Judge Dredd movie (If I'm actually going to fork up the cash to see it). It is way more about Paul Verhoeven for me.

    Without him, I just see this turning out into another $12 and 2 so hours of a huge crew and lots of money trying to convince us of: "This guy, this guy is BAD-ASS, no, no you have NO IDEA, just watch! see? SEE! THAT WAS BAD ASS! Oh! and Look at that! What did we tell you!?"I'm sorry, but I'm gonna continue here. I'm not gonna say that the old movie was a intellectual masterpiece, but at least it touched on some broader topics that let you enjoy a speculative look into human nature.

    The story covered a great deal of distance for an hour and a half that left the viewer far away from were they begin.

    I found the villain compelling, and his vengeance more believable by his role as both Dredd's old friend, foil, and symbol of the worst that can be brought from in a person. On the verge of multiplying out of control. =shiver=.

    Compelling, entertaining, and didn't take itself too seriously.

    I'm comparing that with a movie that can hardly make it through its two minute long trailer without showing us, what seems like the entirety of the plot. The villain? A drug empowered 2d character who manufactures jobs for the special effects department AKA "Slow-mo".................. I honestly wonder if it is supposed to be satire. What are the chances that the villains ability to control such a large group of people are ever going to be developed beyond the obvious? I'm not hopeful.

    ...The three "heroes" fend for their lives while delivering one liners that practically sound like someone with a bad need for male affirmation or penis envy wrote them.

    Edit* But I gotta say, with some of these trailers that I'm watching, it really looks to me like some of these more recent, maybe a little unexperienced, newcomers are working their way onto the bigger in bigger ways. So, here is to seeing what they are gonna do with a handful of Freddie Wong videos for inspiration and years of film school under their belt... least I feel like that is what were getting...

    ...I forgot what I was talking about....

    I'm bummed they're remaking Robocop. From the art I've seen it's looking like Iron Man vs Megatron to me. I was hoping for some retro look at least.

    That's all I want to see out of a remake. Retro designs that are pretty much the same as the original only made to not look like a guy in bulky plastic armor. Looks like they're keeping a similar satire with the writing though.

    I'd buy that for a dollar...

    ED-209 was absolutely sinister in the original, even more so because of the stop motion animation. When it does its whole, "You have twenty seconds to comply," line, you know it isn't screwing about.

    This new design looks too much like a Transformer or something, and given the high budget attached to the reboot, I don't think it will be suffering very many ultra-violent malfunctions.

    Edit: I'm actually pretty excited for the new Dredd movie and I look forward to seeing it. I think reboots can be kind of good when the previous incarnations never live up to expectations. Sometimes good ideas and concepts get trashed by bad execution, but I don't think you can say that about Robocop, though.

    The new robocop movie looks like it's bowling down the right alley so far. Too bad Darren Aronofsy dumped it, but I don't think he wants to put his reputation on the line for Robocop.

    That Robocop remake is going to suck the sweat off a dead mans balls.
