"'Auntie Mel', you have been charged with the manufacture and distribution of the prohibited sugary snack known as Pixy Stix . The sentence is 6 months Iso-Cubes. How do you plead?"

Melanie belongs to :iconsuichitanaka: ... "but in case you people have forgotten, this block operates under the same rules as the rest of the city. Melanie is not the law... I am the law."

If you've not watched Dredd (2012), you really ought to. It didn't do so well in the box office for various reasons (1. admittedly terrible trailer, 2. detractors of the Stallone movie thought this one would be just as bad - a fair assumption based on the trailer, 3. fans of the Stallone movie thought this one was "an unnecessary remake of a 90s classic", and you can't really blame them for being skeptical considering the Total Recall remake had flopped just a month earlier) , but it's become something of a cult classic and for good reason. If you enjoyed Die Hard (1988), The Raid (2011) or Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) - i.e. pretty straightforward action flicks that knew exactly what they wanted to be and executed it with a mirror-sheen (or perhaps shiny and chrome) level of polish, you will love Dredd. Warning: You may also fall in love with Anderson.
Fingers crossed for Karl Urban to return to the role in the upcoming TV series! I've got my fingers crossed. 

(Ahem) Back to the matter at hand... we'll see just how much the rookie knows soon. ;)

Judge Dredd was based on a comic series btw. 

Just thought i'd throw that out there.

Of course. I'm a longtime fan (a collected edition of the "Cursed Earth" storyline was my introduction to Dredd as a kid) but I'm totally in love with the 2012 movie so wanted to parody that specific depiction! :popcorn:

Okay then. No offence, it's just that i'm sick of seeing people who say their a fan of a movie/tv show and don't realize that what their watching is an adaptation. It's pretty annoying.

I'm a total Judge Dredd fanatic and I loved the hell out of Dredd which became my all time favorite movies on my favorites list and Karl Urban freaking rules! The comics and Dredd are way better than the lousy Stallone version that's for damn sure!

Ah, Dredd! The movie that always lightens up my mood, and one of my all-time favorite comic characters! Thanks!

1. I haven't seen the Urban Dredd, yet, though I've heard good things. What I enjoyed most about the Stallone version was the ABC robot - WOW!

2. I may have a premonition of what Wossy's idea is - does it involve duct-taping someone's cakehole 'til they can barely squeak through it?

<i?Dredd</i> (2012) is one of my favorite films especially since it does justice to the original Judge Dredd comics unlike the old one from the nineties featuring Stallone. So when I saw this I got a laugh or two out of it.

this looks great. I've watched Dredd (2012) a few years ago and it was great and I think it was criminally underated. yeah I know it wasn't exactly like Stallone's but it was great on its own right.

BTW I think Aeira would make hot "Judge".
just sayin' :-P

Heck, it was _ BETTER_ than Stallone's. I like em both, but Dredd was so much closer to the source material.

no offense but Stallone's version will have a special place in my heart due to nostalgia but Dredd was more realistic and more gritty plus stellar acting from Karl Urban and the rest too. Headbang!

I did say I like them both. It's just that Urban's movie was very much the comics brought to life.

My issue with dredd is the plot has a weird parallel with the raid in that they both require scaling an apartment of criminals essentially alone

Yeah. I noticed that as well.

But Dredd got it right. Stallone's movie went wrong when it tried to make the movie ABOUT Judge Dredd. But Dredd isn't so much a person, hes the living incarnation of Megacity One's law. Stories happen AROUND him. It's like he's part of the environment. So the 2012 movie following Judge Anderson working with Dredd worked in a way the Stallone movie couldn't.

Mmmrrr. If only the Iso Cubes really were like that. Hopefully Auntie Mel's refusal to cooperate will result in an increased sentence. :3

That movie got me into the Judge Dredd universe. I had watched the Stallone movie but I never really knew what Judge Dredd was "about". When I saw trailers for the new movie I was immediately addicted to the idea. America is an irradiated wasteland where only the West and East coasts are inhabitable via gigantic cities that take up several states. And since these humongo cities draw in stupid levels of crime the police (known as judges) are basically walking courtrooms. They are authorized to sentence criminals on the spot. No trial. Who the hell could not love that idea?! I'm very happy to say I saw that movie when it was still in theaters and own it on DVD. =3 Can't wait for the show! Oh, and this pic is wonderful! Can't wait for more =3

I'm glad you saw Stallone's version of Judge Dredd since it was a classic. I also like the concept of the material that it was base on.
