Judge Dredd Footage Shows Gritty Violence


This international fan site for Karl Urban has posted an animated GIF that shows actual footage from the upcoming movie. It’s pretty short but really shows the something that could spell out the violent tone of the movie. If your a Judge Dredd Comic book fan then you know that graphic violence is part of the joy that is Dredd. After Stallone’s mutilation of the franchise this NerdBastard is hoping that Urban and company can really pull this off. Dredd deserves a good treatment. 

DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.

Dredd stars Karl Urban ( Star Trek), Olivia Thirlby (Juno), and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones). The film opens in 3D September 21st.

The Expendables Trailer- FINALLY!


After all the talk, they have finally released the trailer of The Expendables, The Stallone flick that was supposed to unite Stallone, Bruce Willis and Schwarzenegger for the first time. Well I hope the scene in the trailer isn’t the only part, because they just blew the whole film with the 3 biggest action heroes on the screen together in the trailer!
In my opinion I think it looks like a good ol’ action flick from the yore, as in, the days of. The roster is quite impressive, and I will say now before all the hype for this film hits the fan, that YOU ARE ALL SELLOUTS!! Remember when we were little, and all the action films were these guys against insane odds?
30 men all missing with their guns and then Stallone firing once in a strafe motion and all the bad guys falling down dead. I think it’s high time we have a RIDICULOUSLY Over the top action film again. You all forget it was the way we were raised. It was all there was available until we started getting Matrixy films and high concept action. The Expendables will bring us back to the basics, hopefully. Check out the trailer and plot synopsis after the jump. Via /Film (more…)

Lots of films didn’t make the cut for this list for the following reasons: 1. Certain directors and movies are too well-known and obvious to spend time recommending. 2. Some movies don’t need to be recommended to sci-fi nerds, horror freaks or pop-culture afficionados of any particular decade.  3. These vary on the obscurity scale, but they’re all beloved to this writer’s heart and colossally riveted into my psyche….and  4. There are only twelve spots on this list, so by all means use the comments section to make your Must-See Top 12 Films known.
