MadSkillz: But was it good?
Rising_Zan_Samurai_Gunman: I'm interested in seeing Dredd, I just didn't get a chance to go see it this weekend. I think its biggest problem is that the only knowledge most American's have of Judge Dredd is the god-awful Stallone version.
AcneVulgaris: Didn't the original bomb too?
Erodeo: All of the reviews that I've read (from trusted sources) agree that Dredd is a fun action film with little in the way of cheese and mostly faithful to the 2000 AD character. Just because it flopped, firstie, doesn't mean it isn't good. You must also love Nickelback.
Apos: End Of Watch was entertaining. The amount of slow motion shots in the trailers for Dredd 3D were too Snyder-esque for my taste,so I skipped it. Seems I made the right decision.
Mad_Radhu: Apos: End Of Watch was entertaining. The amount of slow motion shots in the trailers for Dredd 3D were too Snyder-esque for my taste,so I skipped it. Seems I made the right decision.Doesn't the plot of Dredd revolve around a drug called Slo-Mo? In this case, it seems like gratuitous use of slow motion is warranted.

You must also love Nickelback.If anything, the vision of Megacity 1 is even more dystopian in the film than it is in the comic, which is very cool./ Saw this yesterday, thoroughly enjoyed it// theater was practically empty, which doesn't bode well/// hope word-of-mouth and future DVD sales save it.
Cosmk: Saw The Master...still don't really know what to say about it, but Joaquin Phoenix gave one of the best performances inthe history of film, and even outdid P.S. Hoffman. Which I didn't think was possible, especially considering that he too knocked it out of the park.
AntonChigger: MadSkillz: But was it good?Apparently, its sitting at a not too shabby 77% on rotten tomatoes right now. I was surprised, I was more expecting it to be one of those movies that are so bad that they are good.
fribbley: ... Sooooooo much better than Resident Evil.
Funbags: Judge Dredd looks like a Syffy Saturday special, glad it bombed, so there will be no more sequels.The Master was amazing. Phoenix, wow. Hoffman WOW.
Gaambit: Saw Dredd today and it was great - everything I was expecting it to be.It's basically "The Raid: Redemption" plus "Robocop". I think word-of-mouth after its theatrical run will redeem it.
zimbach: The success of a film should be measured over the course of generations, not its first weekend of inflation-unadjusted ticket sales. Many movies we now consider classics flopped in their initial releases.
