One of the most genuinly best games I'v played in years. Hell of fun and so much to do!

Good thing I saw this thread. I need to start playing it on my 3DSXL.

"The surprising 95% Rotten Tomatoes rating and the presence of Cersei Lannister as the primary villain (!!!), however, were enough for me to give it a try"

"95% Rotten Tomatoes rating". Those were the days, eh?

"After watching Dredd, I realised that the reason why it seemed so... weird, I guess... is that it didn't follow the kind of predictable cliches I was expecting. This type of movie -- especially one with an adults-only rating -- usually has very poorly-drawn characters and a lot of throwbacks to grindhouse cinema, but despite Dredd's plethora of extreme violence it never really went that route. Although it has the basic plot of a shoot-em-up videogame, the decision and emotional reactions made by the characters were far, far more intelligent and realistic than other movies of the genre"

Cheers for that, Hula; I'll keep it in my pocket for the next time clr03f starts banging on about how this film only appeals to teenage boys.

Good idea! But it seems like if he's absent from IMDB now. Could be he's learning german towards the premiere there or writing material for the bluray/dvd release? Hopefully I'll never need to know.

But to the analysis itself. Love it that the movie is gaining momentum with women. Gives me hope that I'll someday find the perfect lady, who also happen to like DREDD tihi.

I imagine something similar to these two trailers to 300 and Sin city. Violence and voice overs. Two movies who in my opinion are even more video game-ish and should have been harder to sell than Dredd, but still made a mint.

Hopefully when the bluray/dvd is released tributes with the DREDD ost will flood youtube. Or the intro to it.

Just something to give an idea how good the film really looks and goes with the soundtrack. Or that it's Judge Andersons story, and that it'll make you want to stand up and clap when the end hits ;)

Instead of shoehorning it into La Roux - In for the Kill with jump cuts and pissing people off realising they showed Ma-Ma getting killed in the trailer :'(

The music - La Roux's In for the Kill - was poorly chosen and inappropriate - that aspect alone put off people I know. The film's actual soundtrack is great and would have served the trailer far better.


Being an armchair director, I would have made the 'rookie thrown in the deep end' aspect the main angle of the trailer - make the 'buddy cop' element the main selling point, which would have helped to deflect the Raid comparisons. I would have also used part of Dredd's opening monologue to set the scene, as it's so perfect and has some incredible imagery such as the spaghetti junction flyover and the city walls. I would have made the specifics of the plot more vague (such as not including whopping great spoilers like "Peach Trees is the manufacturing bas for all the slo mo in Mega City One" and Dredd throwing Ma Ma through the window).

I totaly agree with this. I don't know how many, including myself, who got stunned by how Anderson stole the show with the evaluation bit. And how few jump cuts the movie had. The film felt really fresh doing without constant cutting!

And not to mention how the clunky cut fighting looked amazing in the film, simply no words for it how off it looks in the trailer compared to the film itself. A friend who almost didn't watch the film soley based on that came back from the cinema amazed beyond everything.

And I know some who saw the movie based on the OST.

Interesting analysis of Anderson and Ma-Ma by Alyssa Rosenberg. The same Alyssa who assisted an analysis America on Dredd Reckoning.

On a side note. Can you read Life and death of Johnny Alpha without reading The final solution?

I'v read some of the later Wagner stuff, for example K. conspiracy, and I liked it as much as the old stuff. But I haven't heard anything good about the final solution, and I really didn't like the art in it (could be I like Alpha drawn by Carlos too much)

Quite strange read. Strong Glenn Beck/Alex Jones-vibes. Everything in the movie is apparently linked to the united states of America, even Anderson's hair colour :eh:

So, new Robo's got a hilarious rubber bum and a cute picture of a Gremlin's face on his back, has he? And I can't believe I've logged onto the Internet and seen a picture of a fat man wiping Robocop's arse.

I'm so happy I logged onto the internet to read this  :lol:! Thank you so much :D!

Insane scene. Love everything about it! Only problem is that it's impossible to describe for people who hasn't seen it, it's too damned awesome...

That's all movie trailer's though, isn't it?

Hehe, well kind off. But Andersons fighting for example, which is great in the movie but in the trailer looks choppy cut'n'dull. Maybe they'v could have stuck to the scene where she fights for a mp5 and cut it more nicely (giving the viewer some taste for blood = some urge to see the movie where she blows his face up ;) )

A colleague saw a picture of Dredd on my computer and asked if it was any good. When I said it was great, he seemed surprised, and said he might go see it tonight instead of Looper.

I told him that sadly, it's all but been and gone from cinemas.

Does seem to be an alarming lack of awareness. Turns out hardly anyone actually reads movie reviews, apparently.

I'v gotten similar reactions from folks. Especialy when they ask about the constant cuts in the trailer, when I tell them that there's very little jump cuts in the action, it just flows. The trailer makes it look like a music video.

I'd like to think that a trailer good as the ones attached to Sin city or 300 could have done wonders for the numbers.
