Dredd 2012…a review

Dredd made is debut here in the states this past Friday, I finally got a chance to see it this past weekend, and WOW! I am blown away! I have been a long time fan of the character, both from the 95′ version of the film and the 2000AD books, and this film did a incredible job of telling the story of Judge Dredd!

First off, this version is way more closely related to the original comic than the Stallone version, and while I still find the original movie entertaining, even though it has it’s flaws, this updated version blows it out fo the water! With the incredible portrayal of the title character by Karl Urban, and in my opinion the even better portrayal of Judge Anderson by the incredible Olivia Thirlby, this film is the Dredd should be seen by a mass audience. The story, done incredibly well by the verty talented writer Alex Garland, who brought another one of my favorites movies to big screen Sunshine, is really the backbone of the film, it was written in such a manner that I felt entertained form the beginning to the end.

To mark, in my opinion, a great film, I wanted to post all of the online featurettes below, so you can see what went into making this movie spectacular!

 

 

 

 

 

First official photo of Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine!

After countless paparazzi photos, we finally have something official from The Wolverine, ’cause Marvel has released the first still from the movie featuring Hugh Jackman as the title character.

Jackman has no problem showing a little skin for his fans. Here he is as Logan/Wolverine striking a pose and flexing some serious muscle. The claws are out and he’s ready to fight. The Wolverine will center on the hero’s journey through Japan, where he’ll encounter the villainous Silver Samurai (Will Yun Lee).

Last month, Jackman revealed that the film will be its own entity. “We’ve deliberately not called it Wolverine 2 because we want it to be placed and feel like a standalone picture,” he said. “With an all-new cast and setting it in Japan, it’s going to give us a whole new visual aesthetic.”

We’re not sure how we feel about his hair being so short, but to each his own. What do you think of the first photo from The Wolverine?

First Robocop Suit Images Online

Ok, so the first image of the new Robocop suit has surfaced online, and it is basically exactly like the concept artwork we have seen before. Now, i’m not a huge Robocop fan like some out there, but the original design of the suit is a classic in my mind, and i’m not a stranger to updating and re-designing things alittle, esp for a reboot, but WOW, come on now!!! it’s basically a black version of Iron Man suit!!!….we’ll leave it upto you to decide.

And the ride….cant forget the ride…

The Wolverine-poster and synopsis!

The cameras are finally rolling on the much delayed X-Men movie The Wolverine, and now that the action is underway, Fox has announced the official synopsis to clue the fans in on what they can expect!

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior an outsider in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past i n a epic battle that will leave him forever changed!

The Wolverine arc the synopsis refers to come courtesy of Chris Claremont/Frank Miller’s limited 1982 comic series. As far as source material goes, the filmmakers could do alot worse than the fan-favourite story that finds anti-hero Logan drawn deep into the heart of samurai culture. Staring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Rila Fukushima, and Svelta Khodchenkova, The Wolverine leaps into theaters on July 26, 2013.

Below is the new poster design, as well as the header banner above, what’d a ya think?

 

Christie’s “50 Years of James Bond” Auction!

Do you think you could pull off the tiny swimsuit Daniel Craig wore in “Casino Royal”? If so, you might like to know the swimsuit will be of one of the 50 James Bond related lots Christies auction house will auction off from Sept. 28 to Oct. 8 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of James Bond!

The Auction, called “50 years of James Bond”, will take place entirely online with the exception of 10 additional lots to be auctioned off in a private, invitation only event at Christies in London on Oct. 5. “Christies is excited to be working directly with EON Productions to present this unique auction to mark the 50th anniversary of James Bond”. Nicolette Tomkinson, director of Christies stated in a press release about the event.

I for one find this very interesting! James Bond items are very coveted by collectors, and I love the idea, even though it’s a small amount of items, that only 50 will be auctioned off, one for each year of the franchise. This doesn’t necessarily mean a influx for the market, as these items will go to the highest bidder, and there are alot out there who will be throwing up there paddle for this one!
