Had no idea Karl Urban was Judge Dredd in the upcoming remake. It sounds like (from initial reviews) that it's pretty good. And yes, he leaves the helmet on the whole movie. Redband preview

Why does that dude always look like he's taking a shiat?

Oh and basing your movie on the first episode of the series is farking lame.

I'm pretty sure he was joking. The comics have already dealt with Gary Mitchell, and they are overseen by Robert Orci (one of the screenwriters) and are considered canon in the new Trek universe. So unless they're just re-writing a story they just did a few months ago, it was just a throwaway line. But hey who knows. I hope not though, Gary Mitchell is pretty dull.

I certainly did, especially when he took the adrenaline. It was as bad as I expected, only better.

I'm not convinced this isn't all Abrams trolling us. Mostly because of the comic thing.

RED was awesome on so many levels. I mean, just getting Helen Mirren to do an action movie was pretty cool, but the whole thing was a blast all around.

Threadjack:

Orci & Kurtzman are 100% responsible for the script on the first Transformers film. As you know, there are three live action transformers films and it's generally agreed upon that the first was the least shiatty. Earlier drafts of the script for the first film are actually tighter and more coherent than the final draft that was filmed. Said final draft was the end result of having to shoehorn in plot elements mandated by suits as well as an amazing amount of product placement in order to finance the film. Add to this the fact that what you see on screen veers wildly even off of the final draft thanks to Mr. Bay's directorial style and I'd say they're even less to blame.

Enter Transformers two.

If you remember, there was a Writers Guild strike going on during the months leading up to production on TF2. Orci & Kurtzman had barely begun a first draft when they were required to stop writing. During this downtime, Michael Bay began scouting locations for an as yet unwritten script. He also story boarded several action sequences...again for a script that didn't exist.

Now cue the end of the writer's strike. Orci & Kurtzman are given a very rigid framework in which to churn out a script as fast as possible. "Oh hey guys, we've already decided that we're going to film here, here and here and I want to shoot these action beats". They were essentially given the task of doing nothing more than trying to connect the dots. The turned in a couple of drafts and basically said "Yeaaaaah...we're done". At this point Ehren Kruger was brought in to finish things up. Although to any press, the story was that a third writer was being brought on due to time constraints.

The third film was entirely Ehren Kruger.


/I know, I know, "Nice to see you on Fark Mr. Orci!"
//I just happen to know a lot of behind the scenes BS about this franchise
///Sigh...

He also worked on Fringe, which has been a good show for the most part (I was a bit underwhlemed by season 4, I'll admit).

My pet theory to explain Transformers 2 is that it was a poisoned pill that was supposed to end the writer's strike early: a summer blockbuster squeal that was left with an unfilmably bad script that was full of mistakes, plot holes, and terrible dialogue. Unfortunately for us, Michael Bay called their bluff and filmed it anyway.

I gotta agree too. It did have the best plot of the three and the action was easier to see/differentiate. In the other two I had no clue who was winning a fight unless it was Optimus/Bumblebee since they have such contrasting colors. But it still suffered from the same problem as the other two, too many humans.
 
2012-07-13 12:42:51 PM  
I'm still trying to cope with the idea that Judge Dredd is Dr. McCoy. I just...the only way they could exist in one body as characters until Urban is if Dredd had eaten Bones.

/Éomer? Sure, I can see him as Dredd no problem.

I like the new Star Trek comics, and I've made fun of Trekkies for years for whining they can't have that Section 31 movie they all wrote in their basements, and what do you know, the last Trek comic hinted pretty broadly that the next movie might be all about Section 31. Go figure.

Wasn't that the opening scene? It's been a long time since I saw that movie, so I don't remember. I was referring to the part with the wire slicing people.

Only if it's like the one I came up with on my back deck. It has Section 31, the great-grandson of Enterprise's Lt.Reed, a long distant relative of Michael Weston and sometimes Spiderman, depending on what I've had to drink.


///Actually, the 'dark' part of Starfleet hinted at in both Enterprise and DS9 would make a great movie element.
