Yeah, this.  Don't know what Subby is on about.

I didn't watch the Stallone one but yeah, the Karl Urban one was good.
 
2014-04-05 11:27:58 AM
I didn't like how the Karl Urban one stopped storytelling every 5 minutes to go "hey, look at me! I'm 3D! Look look! Over here, I'm doing stuff in 3D!!"

Other than that I quite liked it. If they can get a second one made, and if they can rein in that shiat, I'll be a happy camper indeed.
 
2014-04-05 11:38:15 AM
I haven't seen the Stallone Dredd. I tried watching the Urban Dredd, but I stopped about 45 minutes in, or something like that.

Because meh ...
 
2014-04-05 12:23:26 PM
I quite liked the Urban Dredd .
 
2014-04-05 12:25:50 PM
Yeah Dredd was a solid flick. Would def watch a sequel.
Seriously, kind of gross in spots tho.
 
2014-04-05 12:31:35 PM
Oh, this makes me a happy panda.
 
2014-04-05 12:34:12 PM
What would be cool is if the sequel developed Judge Anderson and the Dark Judges.
 
2014-04-05 12:36:50 PM
After watching  Dredd, I felt really bad about not seeing it in the theater. If, if another one is made, I will go plop my arse in a theater seat.
 
2014-04-05 12:37:47 PM
Judge Dread is a great movie.

Wtf? Dredd was farking awesome. Go back to your shiatty romcoms, Subby
 
2014-04-05 12:38:19 PM
It will be good to get him off American Idol . . .


/o, not him
 
2014-04-05 12:38:46 PM
Yep, enjoyed the flick.   Its the Dredd that should have been made back in the Stallone days (instead of that drek the released)
 
2014-04-05 12:39:46 PM
It was a good film. It was the best use of 3D effects in a film; it actually had a point and advanced the story. And I'm a 3D curmudgeon.

I wish they had used "drokk" and "stomm". There was no fear that they wouldn't get an R rating, and it would have added some needed Mega City flavor.

The first Dredd was a commercial failure because if had an almost nonexistent marketing budget. But it's gained such a solid reputation by word of mouth I can't see how a suit can't look at that and realize a sequel would rake in plenty of cash if they actually, you know, let people know it was a thing.

I didn't want to see it because it was a remake of a lame movie not because I didn't know it was a thing or not.

I started watching this movie not knowing what to expect and then all of the sudden he is in this huge building with his chick side kick and and they are farking it up all the way to the top and it just gets better and better.

Those are the best kinds of movies. Put you in one situation all the way to the end without stopping. Great movie.

I think Subby used the Fail tag because there are no plans for a sequel.

Yep. That's what made it a solid flick. Usually when movies set you up in a world that is messed up, they try to make some small event turn into a game changer for the world. Not this movie, just a routine call turned into a nightmare. It brought up so many interesting plot points like the fact there are psychics, the Judges can be corrupt, a drug that can slow your perception of time, super buildings that house tens of thousands with a WAR protocol and rampant violence seems to be common place without the entire place being destroyed. All of those usually scream for some kind of deeper explanation but by not doing that you can just focus on one plot.

If a sequel is made I hope it follows the same formula and just focus on one event while allowing the world to just be around the plot.

I liked Dread - but it is interesting to watch an foreign movie that came out a year before "The Raid: Redemption" which has a near identical plot, slo-mo scenes and filled with crazy awesome martial arts.

STFU Subby, Karl Urban is pure awesome.
 
2014-04-05 01:16:50 PM
Urban Dredd would a) be a cool band name and b) BE AN AWESOME SEQUEL!

/fark yeah
 
2014-04-05 01:17:45 PM
I always get Karl and Keith Urban mixed when I read about this movie and for a split second I think how a pansy arse like Keith Urban pulled off a good Dredd movie.

My bad. Dredd.
 
2014-04-05 01:24:50 PM
I guess Subby's upset Armand Assante wasn't in the reboot...
 
2014-04-05 01:26:04 PM
Stumbled onto the Karl Urban "Dredd" one day on Netflix when I had the flu.  It was awesome!  Watched it twice in a row and immediately saw lots of great touches I'd missed the first time.  Under-appreciated film, and Karl Urban is an under-appreciated actor.
 
2014-04-05 01:27:27 PM
This is good, but I'd honestly prefer that another season of Almost Human were the promise
:(
 
2014-04-05 01:32:48 PM
I can only assume this was submitted with the fail tag because either submitter is a raging douchebag, or an epically sad attention whore.

I watched both, but I liked Dredd better. The Raid was pure martial arts porn, to the point where I was almost getting of the plot stopping for yet another 20 minute fight sequence, while Dredd had more of an actual story. Plus Ma-Ma was a MUCH better villain than central casting Asian bad guy, who was too generically evil to really properly hate. It's a matter of taste, but the way the Raid was built up I was expecting a little more. I could appreciate the fight choreography a technical level, but The Raid just didn't grab me as a movie.

You're a very kind hearted sort of person.

Everyone keeps pointing to this whenever any action movie remotely set in a building or involving guns, violence, drugs, martial arts, or brown people, comes out.

THE RAID DID IT BETTER is wearing a little thin.

Sure is a lot of subby hate. Geez, you nerds love defending the stupidest crap.

I'm with you, subby!

THE SENTENCE IS SEQUEL.

Considering your profile shows you as a huge comic/scifi nerd, you fail. Dredd is far more true to the comic book than the previous incarnation.

I thought it was great. Captured the tone of the comics, and he never took the helmet off.

Leader O'Cola: This is good, but I'd honestly prefer that another season of Almost Human were the promise

Ye gods I'm agreeing with Leader O'Cola on something, but this! Almost Human is one of those sci-fi shows that does it right for a change. People aren't stupid for the sake of plot advancement, the characters have believable personalities for their role and it questions what makes a person a person. I'm  really hoping they renew it.
 
2014-04-05 02:21:11 PM
Dredd was pretty good I guess, I would probably watch a sequel. Finding a part for Rob Schneider would go a long way toward ensuring my ticket purchase. I mean, I get that they were re-imagining the universe and didn't want to get too close to the original masterpiece (a criminally underrated film), but you can't just leave out one of the best parts of this world that they so painstakingly created. It would be like remaking Star Wars without R2.
 
2014-04-05 02:32:09 PM
Great news. Dredd was better than every move of its type the past few years.

That's better than the "THE RAID DID IT FIRST" crowd.

Dredd started filming November 2010.
The Raid started filming March 2011.

Die Hard did it first
 
2014-04-05 03:07:03 PM
After reading this thread I went and actually watched the movie. I will say it was much better than i thought it would be. I think that it will have a permanent place in the collection.

Spoilers for The Raid follow...

Dredd: Two elite police officers go into a high-rise apartment building on a routine call where they become trapped and must fight the gang that controls the upper floors of the building.
The Raid: A 20-man elite tactical team infiltrates a high-rise apartment building, run entirely by a crime lord and his gang, with the intent to capture or kill the crime lord.  They are discovered, most are killed, and the protagonist must work to complete his mission with the help of his brother, a criminal already living in the building.

Yup, those two plots are nearly identical.  *facepalm*
