Ok how 'bout this:

" Save me a lot of paper work if you just confess right now "

That's GOT to be a line from a Dirt Harry film ?


Anyone ?
;-)

Great scene to wrap up the trailer with. Wish there was one in the elevator too, "He's thinking of going after your gun" "Yep" haha.



And by the way. About the pirate thing I brought up, i accidently clicked  ::) instead of  :-[ . That makes sense?

I wasn't too happy about his support for the movie... And imagine it came off looking like I cheered for it :|

A good rip? FFS..

I was a bit baffled when he said it. I told him to buy the damn thing, to up the chances for a sequel.

'Best of' yearly lists are worthless as anything other than the writer saying "i like these ones. They are what i do like". My 'best of 2012' list would not include Bond, The Hobbit or Batman. Im desperately trying to think of a film ive seen for the first time this year that i actually liked, so any list i'd write (and having a degree in film theory amongst other things and having been at one time gainfully employed in the film industry, my opinion is no less valid than any online critic) would be a grumpy diatribe on how crap films are these days. Oh- i liked The Avengers and Apollo 18.

SBT

It's not my cup of tea either, since most seem to use it to justify what they spent their money on. And I only saw 3 films I really liked this year (DREDD, Moonrise kingdom and Searching for the sugar man). But still, as I said a list that does without Bond and Batman but includes DREDD is a fun read. Here's hope that someone who reads it thinks "Oh, Dredd? Ought to check that out?" or something.

Anyone heard a complaint about the 2d when it was screening in theaters (should be the same version)?

I saw it twice in 2D and didn't see any problems.

Great to hear Joe!

And yeah. The trailer has triggered some of my friends to say they'll buy the film day one. And one friend said he'll make sure he'll make sure he'll watch a good rip  ::)

That trailer is SO much better than the theatrical one it's not even funny - it has so much more energy and attitude, and reflects the tone of the film much better.

Maybe people would have actually gone to see it if that was released instead...  :(

Making a push for it on facebook. It's not as iconic as Sin city or 300's, but pretty damn close, and that's enough. Especially love the feel you get from it that it doesn't show the best bits either, but the best is yet to come if you watch the whole thing.

By the way. Hideo Kojima, the man behind Metal Gear Solid and a fan of Escape from new york. Anyone else care to post a link to the trailer on his twitter demanding that he see's this since he likes EfNY? If he does, then more will follow!

I'd pissed myself...

*Forgot to include "out of excitement.", just to make it clear I'd have a good reason to ;)

Blu-ray trailer.

Anyone else agree that the trailer is beyond amazing!? No words enough to describe how much I wish that this would have been the debut trailer. Sure, I'd pissed myself but more people would definitely gone and seen it plus no discussion about Ma-Ma's death being shown or "Looks like the Raid.".

Dredd on nr 20 on a list that didn't include either Bond, Dark Knight Rises or The Hobbit harr harr harr!

Love this comment too!

"Ken Coutu ยท New Liskeard, Ontario
Another top 20 tying to be smart and artsy. Half of the movies nobody will ever care about, and anyone who puts Dredd, Cabin in the Woods, and a movie that hasn`t been released yet over T.D.K.R. is trying too hard to impress people with his movie knowledge."

Rorsarsch has been a bit predictable, but it's only two issues in and I'm sure Azzarello have some trick up his sleave

What, like writing some dialogue that actually sounds like Rorschach?

Cheers

Jim

Could be too much of optimism for my part since I love Lee's art, and always hype Azzarello's stuff.

But of course. Rorsarsch saying "serious smack" sounds fun, but it isn't nowhere up there with monolog about the night he flipped. But still, it's not often Azzarello is a let down for me, and I certainly hope not in this case either.

A bit reluctant to kick start this thread as it can course bad blood and all that BUT interesting (and possibly annoying for some people) to see what DC are doing with the collections of these.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/12/10/before-watchmen-to-double-up-for-hardcover-collections/

Lucky with these doubling up of stories it leaves the stories I'm interested in together and while I'll probably  wait longer for the trade rather than the hardback, I'll be getting the Darwyn Cooke collection (Minute Men and Silk Spectre) and I'll consider the Len Wein one (Ozymandias and Black Freighter) as and when.

I guess the logic behind this is giving book shop readers who have picked up the original a similarly chunky lump of comics rather than a smaller collection that might feel light weight in comparison to Watchmen?

I was actually thinking about the possibility of them doing something like this, and I can't complain how they're paired the books. Especially not the Azzarello stuff (which I'v liked the best together with Cooke's Watchmen), even if I hope for a better cover (Rorsarsch issue one is too damn mint to pass up!)

Thing is with the comedian is that it started slow, but the stories are starting to connect with each other. And I'v actually started to feel a bit sad for the guy (). Rorsarsch has been a bit predictable, but it's only two issues in and I'm sure Azzarello have some trick up his sleave (his wording that ends 100Bullets, Joker, Luthor and Spaceman are insanely good, so I'm expect no less from his two watchmen books).
Cooke's Silk spectre was good fun, but minutemen really shines.

So maybe it'll be the deluxe version of Watchmen (got a hardback, but in swedish) paired with Rorsarsch/Comedian and Minutemen/Silk Spectre. Good times in june/july :)

457 minutes of Nolan's Batman movies in one sitting.

In no way perfect (Loads of too much spectacle to achieve that and moments when I thought to myself how easy it'd be to cut fat and make the movie flow better), but still really powerful fun.

Especially like the ending of DKR. A bit to much focus on how many minutes that's left to save everything (Even 24 have handled it more elegantly in some of it's most "THIS IS GETTING MORE TENSE BY THE SECOND!!!"moments), but still really great in a number of ways.

It looks like the uniform's much closer to the camera than the model.

Looks like a bobble head.
