Mmm, missed that this year (was down the week before or after I seem to remember). Definitely going to try and make that this year though, Lowrider track posted on the site is awesome!

Yay, glad you saw them! I must have been pretty toasty where we were too, Al was looking a bit soggy. Hypnotic indeed, the man's a wizard!  :D Hope they're back soon, most definitely want to experience that again!

The State of Non-Return

Saw them in Glasgow last night, another sublime performance from Al Cisneros. Amazing, possibly even better than Sleep, certainly at times. My pilgramage to the holy trinity of Sleep, Shrinebuilder and Om is complete  :D

Sleep at the Glasgow Arches

Dredd started (in Prog 2) in 2099, it's currently 2134, being 35 years on. Not that the movie's supposed to tie in but that would put it around the same time.

I enjoyed Haywire too, thought it was a lot better than it appeared to be in trailers. Sorry HdE, looks like I won't be going by your opinions  ;)

Nah, that's cool. Diff'rent strokes an' all that. Although I would say that for me, the exact opposite was true - great trailer, crap movie.

Absolutely, we all have different tastes, glad I didn't come across in a bad way there. Smileys work!

@Lee & Prof - Cheers, sounds like it'll still be worth a watch then. I think I did know the spoilered bit there from someone in another thread (probably Dredd 3D somewhere) about that kind of plot.From that point it's sounding a bit like The Island, obviously without the Bay-style uber-action.

Ultimately, Carey and Keira should be reason enough  :)

Man I need that edit button, here's the triple post. Anyways, I never said it was a coincidence or disagreed that it was an influence/basis. Just saying the movie is entirely based on it I disagree with. 6 pages of comic versus what, 100 pages of script and a very good movie? Just my view there.

In danger of veering off topic and lots has been said, but I'd agree with you that it involved a lot of good work from all involved to produce the film on top of just Shok. You're right, it's not entirely based on it but I'd say that the entirety of the strip was used as a basis for it.

I'd forgotten about the Lemmy bit, which is great :D AND it has Ministry/GWAR on the telly. I was going to say it had Ian Dury too but I'm thinking of "another" film there and entirely different dodgy dealer selling robot parts  ;)

Ugh. Also, if I can just express my disgust at some arsehole on lovefilm. Was going to chuck Never Let Me Go on my list and made the HUGE mistake of looking down the list of reviews. Some hugely inconsiderate, bottom-feeding scumbag posted a one liner basically saying it was shit and describing what the whole film was about. So that'll be pointless now I guess. It's like bloody Homer on his way out of Empire  ::)

Last film I didn't bother to watch - Machine Gun Preacher. Hoping for some Avengers in this week's lovefilm lottery!

a certain film called Hardware was "inspired" by a 4 page Ro Jaws tale.

No need to beat around the bush, it was entirely based on it! Enough to have them forced to include a credit at the end on the DVD (or video at the time lol). Still, was a damn good film, which just goes to show...

Forgot to mention that the guy playing Shakri in this was...


Currently, or at least until very recently, as it's just ended, was playing a mad heretical monk in The Borgias. Looks incredibly like Rutger Hauer in that main pic.

 :lol: Looking at his past, he was also Victor Maitland in Beverly Hills Cop and the bad guy in Octopussy!

From Box Office Mojo (not Scojo!):

In sixth place, comic book adaptation/remake Dredd bombed with just $6.3 million from 2,506 locations. That's less than one-third of Kick-Ass's $19.8 million, and only a little over half of the original Judge Dredd's $12.3 million (and that movie was considered a flop 17 years ago!). It's at least up on Shoot 'Em Up ($5.7 million) and about on par with April's Lockout ($6.2 million), though those comparisons suggest Dredd is on track for less than $20 million through its entire run. The audience was predominantly male (75 percent) and older (69 percent were 25 years of age or older) and they gave the movie a "B" CinemaScore. A 3D share is not currently available.

Dredd's awful performance is the latest example of how the Comic-Con/online fanboy crowd just doesn't make up a large portion of the moviegoers in this country. The movie came out of its Comic-Con screening in July with tons of online buzz and very strong reviews, and it maintained a 100 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes through at least its first 25 reviews (though it ultimately wound up at a more-reasonable 77 percent). As a result, the fanboy audience was very aware of this movie ahead of release, and anticipation seemed to be pretty high among this group as well. Ultimately, though, it's just not a big-enough group to drive strong business. For a good dissection of the hazards of targeting fanboys, check out this piece from earlier this year in The Hollywood Reporter.


Well there's another site I won't be generating clicks for. Dunno about the rest of you, but I absolutely fucking detest being referred to as a "fanboy". As far as I'm concerned it's nothing but a derogatory term (esp. in gaming) and whoever wrote that can suck my balls.

You ever see Alice Donut do it live? The drummer played trombone so the singer played drums and hence it became in instrumental version.

Never managed to see them live no, would love to.

Sepultura's version of 'The Hunt' by New Model Army

Wow, now that I've got to hear!

Mudhoney's verison of 'Revolution' by Spacemen 3

I nearly listed that myself!

And seeing as Napalm mentioned Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Voivod's Forgotten in Space and Nuclear Assault's Hang the Pope.

Faith No Mores Version of 'Lets Lynch the Landlord' by the Dead Kennedys
Alice Donuts version of Sabbaths 'War Pigs' which is instrumental and has a fucking trombone solo in it!
Orbitals take on the Dr Who theme

Definitely, there's loads off that Kennedy's cover album that are great.

Impressed with the mention of Alice Donut too, though I prefer Helter Skelter, done the same way!

Interesting post from another movie thread, about another one pointlessly started when there was another one about the same subject...

"First time posting in here (was more interested in the comics than the film tbh with ya)!!!! " (BSC)

So you weren't interested and now you're trolling. I'm off to another thread before I say something offensive about the mentally challenged...
