As for the car quote, orinAGN, I guess that went right over my head. I'll assume that even if I "got it", it would be as funny as it is now.

I am shocked and dismayed that a human being walks upon this Earth, unable to recognise those words immediately. Allow me to elucidate... http://youtu.be/aXlnMveRt-Y

God, I'd forgotten how annoying that song was.

HAHA!  I love that song!  Oh well, to each their own!  Your reaction was priceless though.  Comedy gold!

re Dredd Japan
In a New Zealand radio interview the other day, Urban said he's going to Australia then Japan as part of the publicity tour.

It's at the 8m50s mark

Hong Kong is on the list, but not China - anyone know why? Shame. Such a huge market to miss out.

Miffed because they didn't get action figures to produce perhaps?

Violence and political overtones probably. Only a limited quota of foreign films are chosen each year.

It's definitely hanging on in there.  Critically liked and surely going to make money one the home release happens means it should be seen as a success.

Caught the 2D version earlier this evening as it finally made it onto a screen in Bristol, I have to say I think I preferred it to the 3D version. Don't get me wrong, having seen the 3D version 6 times and loved it, I just found the picture clearer and sharp and easier to watch. It could be because I wear glasses and have to wear the 3D ones over the top, but the 2D experience for me was a good deal more enjoyable.

Be interested to see what the opinion of other people who have seen both the 3D and 2D version is.

Overall I'd say that the 3D hasn't particularly enhanced the film, but then I don't think it has detracted from it either, which I guess makes it a bit 'meh'.

That's infuriating, isn't it? I ended up taking my glasses off, and watching it just with the 3d specs, so the beauty of the slow mo scenes was lost a little bit thanks to the blurriness...
