    Dredd. 65/100

    I was pleasantly surprised I could stomach to watch a new film in it's entirety.
    Most of the time I turn it off because I get annoyed or bored. (Skyfall for example)

    Dredd 3D

    First time I've watched it since the cinema and it's just as awesome second time around on a small screen.

    One noticeable difference is that when I left the cinema I couldn't wait for more, now having seen the Blu-ray I'm a little sad that Dredd 2 will probably never happen.

    Sure the plot is thin but as a day in the life of Dredd it's exactly what the plot should be - simple, perp breaking action.

    9/10
    I read a lot of reviews on Imdb.com with people giving similar scores.
    I don't understand how you can give Dredd a 9.

    If you give Dredd a 9, what do you give Aliens and Robocop?
    13/10?

    I love Dredd, but maybe you should try something outside the realm of the action-orientated blockbuster?

    Jaded gamers go down the classic/indie route - perhaps you could do the same with films?

    Meh. Don't like indy artsy farty.
    I like good commercial easy to watch action or adventure.
    Like Die hard (NOT 4), Lethal weapon (NOT 4), Indy (NOT 4) Star Wars (NOT 4,5,6). To bad that does not get made anymore..

    The old ones are the only ones which are good, which I call 1, 2 and 3.

    @CaptainKid ah okay, is a bit confusing though - usually 4,5,6 are considered to be the old ones. But yeah the new ones are a disgrace for the most part.

    The shot with them hiding from the raith under the log is also identical to the animated film (as in the exact same shot and angle), and the approach to the opening sequence is also incredibly similar.

    I loved that animated film as a kid. Was gutted they never did the second part.
    I thought I was the only one who liked that film. It has considerable flaws but I just loved the rotoscoping.

    I actually found Bakshi's orcs to be genuinly scary as a child.

    Pretty much. I get how people who aren't already fans of the character will see it as a disappointing film but for me it was the perfect Dredd film and that's how I scored it.

    This. Don't rule out a sequel either just yet.

    Would have liked to see more special features on the BR but they probably thought it wasn't worth the cost and effort. A bit of a shame really.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    A Fantastic Fear of Everything

    I like Simon Pegg and think he's a really interesting screen presence, therefore I'm baffled as to what he was thinking when he aligned himself with this steaming cowpat of a movie.

    Tonally it's all over the place, but more unforgivable is how crushing dull the whole thing is, lolling from one uninteresting scene to another and introducing ever more bland characters.

    Easily the worst film I've seen in the past 12 months.

    10%

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    Even unaltered Star Wars was called Episode IV A New Hope

    Also, do other people have to understand your views on film? It's subjective to the person.

    It's snarky retorts like "what you liked Dredd, but what about film x" that are starting to annoy me.

    I think I'm slowly becoming reluctant to post scores/reviews in this thread now, because heaven forbid I actually enjoyed Gangster Squad and gave it a high score. I still enjoy reading other people's views though :)

    This makes no sense.

    Surely it's a 9/10 Dredd film.
    What's that got to do with Aliens or Robocop?

    Hate to be a super geek, but the very original release was simply called Star Wars.

    The episode number and name was added for the rerelease after Empire first came out.

    It's a really unique bit of filming. I still think it looks amazing.

    Bakshi is a legend as well obviously.

    Bakshi's Aragorn nicely sidestepped the whole Aryan Supremacy thing as well.

    Took a break from wedding planning to watch Rec 3. Yeah, good call.

    Liked it, but mentally keeping it apart from the excellent 1 and good(ish) 2. Surprised (kind of) to hear they're bringing it all together in Rec: Apocalypse.

    I mus admit, I didn't even bat much of an eyelid when they stepped away from the handicam style and opened out to a regular visual narrative. (Which is far too pretentious a line to attach to a film like this.)

    7/10. Fun but flimsy.
