    The Raid script came after the Dredd one and was supposedly heavily 'influenced' by it.

    Stallone will always be THE Dredd. The world and setting is far better realised, there is actual fleshing out of the characters and the whole female rookie thing completely unnescessary. Its like watching Stallone Dredds nephew at work in a characterless predictable 2d world.

    "Iam the law". Yeah okay whatever. You nicked that off your uncle you spaz.

    Now. The only thing that The Raid and Dredd have in common is the tower concept with the baddies running it. Dredd came after The Raid so that tells u something.

    The Raid is original and a quite magnificent martial arts action piece and is by far one the best films ever made.

    You're 'avin' a bath mate. Stallone will never be THE Dredd; simple reason, takes the helmet off innit. It's essential to the character that he never does. Not only that, but Stallone's Dredd was too soft. Waaay too soft.

    And as has already been pointed out, The Raid was written afterwards during Dredd's pre-production, which having a bigger budget and more effects took longer to make - and was heavily "influenced" by it through Dredd's leaked script.

    Case closed?

    @itsoldsquarejaw Yup, the Judges are much cooler with their helmets on rather than off.

    It's also that it impersonalises him. He's a figurehead and you only ever see glimpses of the human/clone underneath. It's why they stop Anderson from probing him too much at the beginning, but just enough to get a glimmer of something beyond. Take off his helmet and you lose a lot of what makes Dredd, Dredd.

    Watched Only God Forgives last night on US netflix. Really, really liked it. Can totally see why it's so polarising (gruesome as hell in places, not much really happens in it) but I was totally caught up in it. Beautifully shot and the lighting is really well done in places. It's definitely weak on story/characters, and no one is really fleshed out, but something about it just grabbed me. The Bangkok police officer is terrifying.

    Berberian Sound Studio (2012) 8/10

    95% of the film takes place inside a sound studio. The budget must have been tight. This doesnít matter, as the cast do a good job.

    ĎA sound engineer's work for an Italian horror studio becomes a terrifying case of life imitating art.í - IMDb

    As slow as the film is, it is strangely watchable. Itís also an interesting insight into the recording process back in 1976, with itís tape technology. While I got most of the film, there was also a sense maybe I didnít get the film. I didnít get the ending, which was annoying.

    Insomnia (2002)

    Watched this randomly as I knew I saw it in the cinema on release (and enjoyed it enough) but couldn't really remember much of it.

    It had completely slipped my mind that

    1) It's a Chris Nolan film
    2) It's packed with great actors : Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Hilary Swank
    3) the cinematography is stunning.

    Loved the main stars facing off and the story, while functional, takes a backseat to the atmosphere and stunning production values and I was immersed really.

    This is another the passed me by, will make more of an effort to put that right.† Good sales pitch!

    Only a hardened mouthwash fiend would claim that Stallone's Dredd was anything other than an hilarious travesty. By my reckoning he spends around 80% of the film without his helmet!

    A beautiful, truthful, hard hitting documentary following a 'Burra detective. Oh yes.

    Loved the musical cameo too.

    The Family - 4/10

    Tonally all over the place and just bizarre all round really. Bobby can still act and really why is he in crud like this. Dianna Agron didn't do any acting at all, which started to wind me up. I mean she wasn't just acting badly, she literally wasn't acting.

    Constantine: 9/10

    The scrypt is not great and the story has a huge hole in it(to much spent whether the twin sister commited sucide for no reason)But the whole vibe, special effects and constantine as a character got me hooked. I still don't know why i really like this movie but for some reason i just do.

    @Rajin I agree, the same guy directed I am Legend, and the new hunger games, they're flashy movies but I like his choices so far.

    The talk of keeping the helmet on makes me question why Stallone had blue eye contacts in Judge Dredd. Back then I imagined the comic character had ice blue eyes but if he never took his helmet off, seems a weird thing to do for the film as his eye colour is unknown.

    Judge Dredd is a Stallone film, with Stallone playing a good-guy Stallone in a costume that shows off his absolute Stallonenity. Other people act in it, whereas Stallone does good-guy Stallone, as he usually does in Stallone films. Having a Stallone film based on some British comic probably spoiled it if anything. They should have ignored all that and called it 'Super Cop' or 'Future Cop' or something like that. It also has Diane Lane in it, who is rather nice.

    Didn't think much of the latest Dredd movie, to be honest. The concept was excellent but the execution was predictable and mediocre. A Judge Dredd TV series would be completely kick bottom. It's a comic book story, it needs to be filmed as a serial. Knock the piss-poor films on the head and get HBO to drop a few million on a series instead. As Judge Dredd would say: "I'd buy THAT for a Euro!"

    Nice idea. That'd work. Well, except I am now too used to main characters dying and Dredd wouldn't be allowed to.

    To be fair, so much of the old Dredd film kills it... it's just a shame about the main actors, storyline etc. You know, the stuff that really matters.

    Brick second viewing
    A film noir set in a californian suburb sometime in the early 00's. Most of the main characters are at highschool age but there is really only one scene where this ties in with the story and I wish that scene was cut.

    See. Everyone who's ever said or written anything about brick (that I know of (massive caveat)) says it's "A film noir set in highschool". But that makes it sounds as if it's some sort of novelty episode in Buffy.

    It isn't.

    Forget the High-School shit. It's a film noir through and through. (Well, except for that one scene, or maybe two) where they ham it up for no good reason.

    Still. Fucking brilliant in sooo many ways. The silent fuck being one of them.

    A must see

    next up The Brothers Bloom

    It is very pretty, it was a film that kept suprising me with the way events unfolded. Couldn't see myself watching it again as I don't think their would be any benefit from a second viewing.

    Brick is actually one of my favourite film noir's. It's a shame that it often gets overlooked as a bit of a gimmick.

    Wasn't thrilled by The Brothers Bloom though, or Looper.

    Invictus - 6/10

    Ok, I'm thinking maybe I just don't like Clint Eastwood movies, or at least most of the ones he's made for the past 20 years.

    So this is a film about Nelson Mandela, and with all of the uplifting true story-ness of it, there's not much chance it's going to be terrible.

    But Eastwood is so bloody on the nose with everything that it almost ruins it. At almost every moment the movie is bludgeoning you over the head with how you should be feeling. At one point, where Mandela goes and meets the white rugby team, there's a song called "Colourblind" on the soundtrack, and it's like... could you possibly be any less subtle than this? Do you not think that your audience is smart enough to realise the significance of this moment without you spelling it out for them?

    Ugh. Maybe this shouldn't piss me off, but it really does.

    Elysium - 8/10

    Blomkamp REALLY loves Halo doesn't he? Anyway, i'm not sure if it was just lowered expectations because i'd heard bad things about this, but i thoroughly enjoyed it. Predictable as fuck, & i have no idea what was going on with Jodie Foster's accent, but i thought it was great.

    Contracted. Well that was different, that Najarra whatshername is quite tasty though. If you can cope with indie horror acting its quite interesting.

    started watching Open Grave with sharlto Copley in but a dog appeared and my dog started being tough with the tv. Enjoyed what I saw though, like a horror version of persons unknown (tv series that lasted one season a few years back).

    Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) 9/10

    Sure Iíd seen clips, but never the whole film, until yesterday that was. It was good fun, very funny at times. I watched the Blu-ray, which to be honest, was good, but also exposed the filmís age somewhat. Thereís many moments when areas of the screen that should maybe be black, look more like dark blue.

    When Roger interacts with the live actors, thereís a sense the artists where attempting to make Roger look 3D. While it looks impressive, there are times they bother with reflections, and other times they donít. For example, when Rodger walks past a rather curvy looking car, there is no reflection of Roger, sure it would have proved to be a real challenge, to attempt such a reflection, nearly impossible infact.

    Bob Hoskins is his usual great self.

    This is one film that would benefit from a make over. Imagine taking the original elements, and replacing all the moments when cartoon meets live action/characters, and re doing the cartoon elements using CGI. I would look great. The moments where thereís no live action/characters, the 100% cartoon moments, when the Toonís are doing their job, Iíd keep as hand drawn, just like it is.
