"I think DragonCon would short circuit if Peter Weller came as Robocop and Karl Urban came as Dredd, am I right?"   *lots of cheering*

Thanks. The GIFs kept me in a bit of suspenders there.

Nice pic. I'm liking this version of the Batmobile. It's both sleeker and tougher looking than the Tumbler. I'm not sure about the cannons but it's cool how the cockpit opens up like bat ears.

Would they normally bring the armed unit out to deal with a knife?

It doesn't sound too unreasonable on the face of it. Not that I trust any investigation from these people.

A few months back I looked out the window to see a neighbour with what clearly looked like a small pellet rifle thing, and there was an 8ft armed police occifer giving him a talking to. I'm not exactly sure what went on there.

I have a feeling that someone's going to get an egg thrown at them today.

It sounds like you have intimate knowledge of this impending attack.

Just build a secret wall like the South Koreans did. With maybe secret machine gun nests. If you don't admit it's there it doesn't exist.

I just think it's a little hard for many in the rest of the UK to get excited when they don't get to enjoy the actual voting bit (which they shouldn't, regardless of the illogical arguments for it).

I just want the fucking thing to be over. >:(

Same here. Just ten days left. At least when the vote is over there'll be less guesswork concerning the future of the UK and a little more doing. That could be interesting. Or at least not as dull.

It's a shame that during all this 'debate' there hasn't been a strong push for a federal option. Something like that may have actually inspired people while devolution just seems so half-arsed.

That's two. :thumbsup:

Maybe his name power would compensate with a few extra million quid thrown on the Budget. Just get Toby Stephens to play young Clint again.

Let's get that trending.

Yeah, same line, basically. Though at least it's not yet being dismissed. I'll take that as a green light. #Clint4Fargo

Yeah, I definitely think the chop fooey was better in the first than the second. Maybe the second film had different choreographers or Evans deliberately gave the two and a half hour plot his priority. I don't know. Whatever the case, I'd rather watch the original.

Even if some of the similarities with Dredd are quite jarring..

The Raid, sighted here sometimes as DREDD's bane is on Film 4 next week Friday the 11th of July at 10.55 pm.

Bah! Still it says 2011 on the Raids Film release date. Will it be another year before we see DREDD on terrestrial TV?

Cool beans. I've been meaning to watch that again. Some of the fight scenes in The Raid 2 didn't quite feel up to scratch and I wondered if I was just remembering the original wrong. Or maybe its unnecessary 5 trillion hour running time meant I paid more attention when the action stepped up and was a little more critical.

And looking at the poor box office for The Raid 2, I wonder if they could have benefited from having the original film premier earlier (assuming this is the first showing).

When Dredd v Caligula: Dawn Of Darkness comes out in early 2016 I hope the original Dredd will have already hit TV screens a good 4 months earlier.

I think it looks great. Pretty much how I'd hope a live action Batman would look.

Same with the Batmobile, sort of. Kind've a mix between the Tumbler and longer style used in earlier films.

I take it that's from Dominion? I wasn't aware of any Legion spin-off but it looks interesting. Though Kirkwood doesn't appear to have a prominent role in it.
