I started this page a few weeks ago. Aimed mainly at people who are just getting into Dredd or have fell by the wayside and are looking at getting back into it. I have posted various stuff on it. I don't profess to be an expert and no doubt I might have made a few mistakes. I would love some of you guys to have a look and please contribute. Constructive criticism welcome. I have had about 80 odd likes. Thanks.

The Judges were brilliant. Everyone was saying without doubt that they were the best dressed, very authentic. Pity I only could do Saturday. Great to see everyone. Mr Burdis, Connor and Liz, Ian, Supersurfer, Mr Wells and Co. and what a top man Ben Willsher is.

Was reading the morning papers online this morning and came across an article in the Sunday Mail about Teresa May and the death penalty. I looked at the comments to the story at the bottom of the page and I came across this.........
The indisputable fact is that if you execute a killer, they will never re-offend.

Film Discussion / Re: DREDD reviews. (SPOILERS!)
« on: 08 September, 2012, 02:25:32 PM »
Ok here's my take on the movie. Arrived with my nephew for the early evening showing in my Judge Death Lives T Shirt, not many people in the cinema proberbly about 20 at the most.

I thought DNA nailed the visuals, very pleased with Mega City One they have created reminiscent of early Dredd as is most of the movie. Loved the fact that they did not CGI the city as this always takes away the realism for me. The very near future look works for me. I think the inclusion of familiar vehicles, clothes etc gives an added sense of relation to the world of Dredd. We have to remember that we are all looking at Dredd from the current state of play in MC1 (post Day of Chaos) and this film is clearly set much earlier.

Some posts on here suggest an omission of Dredds dark humour which is a staple of the comics, I thought Dredd has some great lines in the movie which touched on this, "Admeriable" delivered with that great Dredd cynicism made me smile, as did the "Freeze" "Why?" bit with the juves!
The dialogue for me is pure Dredd, wether its delivered by the big man himself or the supporting cast. Alex Garland clearly knows the world of Dredd

DREDD. Karl absolutely nailed it for me. The voice, the stance, the looks. There is no other way to play Dredd in my view other than the faceless emotionless way Karl has. The grimaces in the Ma Ma showdown was Dredd through and through. Karl doesnt over play or ham it up, he plays him as John Wagner wrote him, a focused unemotional, dedicated lawman who's primary objective is the rule of law whatever the cost.
Olivia was fantastic as Anderson, she gave the movie it's 'humanistic' touch, although some of her characteristics and dialogue reminded me more of Beeney than Anderson. From being the unsure rookie at the start of the movie to a badass Judge at the end Olivia delivers a great sidekick performance.
Wow what a fantastic classic MC1 villan. Totally unrelenting and unapologetic. Lena does not have much dialogue but her screen presence is awesome, she totally nailed it for me. And what a fantastic classic MC1 death at the hands of the big man. Some people have questioned this but I remember Dredd 'executing' the likes of Pa Angel, Owen Krysler, Sabbat, Grice, Narcos, Robert L Booth in equally if not more spectacular fashion.
I have wondered what would I had made of this film if I didn't know the world of Dredd? I would proberbly see it as as a rip roaring, violent, dark shoot em up, which it is. But I know Dredd I know the world and I totally got the references which gives me a more biased but deeper view of it. Yes it's violent but hey it's Mega City 1 it's no picnic living there, yes it's main character is emotionless and driven by one factor but that's Dredd that's what he is. A brilliant take on the world of the, for me, the greatest comic book character ever created. Roll on part 2.

The word DROKK painted on a leather jacket belonging to the perps in the van at the very start.
