(Not So) Random (Blu-ray) Movie Mention: “DREDD” (2012)

DREDD (2012)

The Tagline Says…

JUDGMENT IS COMING

…And That’s Exactly What’s Happening.

Right Here.

Right Now.

Ready?

GREAT!

😉       😀

Let Me Truly Begin By Saying That This Flick…

DREDD

…Is My Favorite Blu-ray Of 2013, Thus Far.

I Can Say That Without Reservation, OR Hesitation.

It Is Simply Wonderful.

To Be Blunt…

…I LOVED IT!!!

As Far As The Film Goes, “DREDD” Is Totally And Easily 142,000-Times BETTER Than The Original Take On The Film, The Campy Cheese-Fest “JUDGE DREDD“, Starring SYLVESTER STALLONE.

In The 2012 Version…

KARL URBAN Is “DREDD

…And He’s So So SO Much Better As The Title Character Than Ole SLY Was.

Don’t Get Me Wrong, My Peeps, I AM A Fan Of Ole SLY STALLONE.

I Always Have Been.

I Just Enjoyed KARL URBAN‘s Take On The Character So So SO Much More.

DREDD” Is WILD.

It’s FUN.

It’s BRUTAL.

It’s BLOODY.

It’s LOADED With Wonderfully Awesome Special F/X, Trashy And Dangerous Characters, The Works!!!

It Has A Simple, But Effective, Plot.

And, Of Course, A Stone-Cold Performance By KARL URBAN.

😀

Honestly, I’m Actually Kinda Sad I Didn’t Make The Time To See This One Up On The Big Screen.

😦

After Seeing It On The Blu-ray, I Can Totally Tell Y’all I Would Have Happily Shelled Out My $10 To Catch It At The Theater.

This Blu-ray Is Rather Stunning.

The Sound Quality May Be The Best I’ve Yet Heard.

The Picture Quality Was Spot-On.

The Flick Simply LOOKED And SOUNDED Wonderfully Wonderful!!!

Co-Starring…

OLIVIA THIRLBY As The Rookie Judge “ANDERSON”

…And…

LENA HEADEY As The Ruthless Drug Kingpin “MA-MA”

…This Version Of The Classic “JUDGE DREDD” Comics Is Vastly Superior To The Original Film Adaptation, And I Had An Absolute Blast Checking-It-Out!!!

I Recommend This One To Anyone Who Enjoys Some Quality Escapist Fun!!!

JUDGMENT IS COMING

???

You Betcha, My Peeps!!!

It’s Coming, And It’s AWESOME!!!

😀       😀       😀

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

So, What If You Don’t Enjoy Swimming???

DONT. GO. SWIMMING.

Period.

I’m A Decent Swimmer, I Just Sincerely HATE Swimming.

Always Have.

I Went Because Other People Always MADE ME GO.

But, Isn’t That How It Generally Works In Regard To A Lot Of Life?

We Didn’t Really Wanna Do It, But We Didn’t Really Have A Choice In The Matter?

Yeah.

That’s How That Works.

Well, I Went Swimming Yesterday Afternoon.

Why?

Because.

UNCLE BRAD

Is

ON DUTY

🙂

I Love Being “ON DUTY“…

…And That’s A Big FO SHO On That, My Peeps!

I Can’t Deny It, So I Won’t Even Attempt It.

So, When The Nephew Says… “Brad, You Said You’d Go!”

Brad’s Response Is… “Sure Thing, Dude. I Did. Let Me Get My Towel.”

If My Response Were Anything Else, Honestly, There Would Be Hell To Pay.

Perhaps, I Mean That Figuratively AND Literally?!

Yep.

I Think I Do.

But, Yeah, I Went Swimming.

And I Swam.

And, Today, I’m Sore, Exhausted, SunBurnt, And Have An Awful Headache.

BUT

I Did Have Fun

I Did Make My Nephew Happy

And I Did Agree To Go Swimming With Him Again Very Soon, As That’s The Only Way I Could Convince Him To Get Out Of The Freakin’ Pool!

Arrrgh!!!

YES, I Still HATE Swimming.

But, YES, I’ll Be Going Back, Next Time.

What Choice Did/Do/Will I Honestly Have???

Correct.

None. At. All.

And THAT Is FINE With ME.

The Nephew AND The Frog😀     😉     😀

I Actually Saw This Flick For The First Time In 1993.

I Was 13-Years-Old.

My Father Had Rented It, And I Decided To Stay-Up-Late And Watch It In Secret.

After Everyone Else Was Asleep, I Popped-It-On In My Room And…

…Honestly…

…Was Totally Blown…

How Watching “ROCKY” and “ROCKY II” Helped Me Re-Quit Smoking… …Again.

I Admit It.

I’ve Slipped-Up.

I’ve Done It Two Days In A Row.

I’ve “Closet” Smoked.

I’ve Been Doing So Well, But It’s So F-in’ F-IN’ HARD!

😦

I’m Actually Having One As I Write This, But That’s Only Because I Felt I Deserved It.

I’m Writing.

That’s What’s Important, Here.

And, I Owe It All To “Closet” Smoking, And Watching “ROCKY” and “ROCKY II“.

Nice.

I Haven’t Had Many Smokes.

So, I Sincerely Don’t Consider It Much More Than A Decently-Sized Hiccup.

But, Honestly, It’s Been Pissing Me Off.

I Really Went Off The Wagon Tonight.

I Just Couldn’t Help Myself.

I HAD To Have One.

So, I Did.

And, Yes, It Was Amazingly Wonderful.

The Best Smoke I’ve Had In A Long, Long While.

Sooo…

…I Eventually Had Another.

😦       😦

I Am So F-in’ Sorry, My Peeps.

I’m Really Trying.

I Really REALLY AM!

But, Honestly, This Is So Damned Hard.

They’re So Engrained Into My Day.

They Have Been For Over 10 Years.

Sheesh.

I Don’t Like Being A “Closet” Smoker.

That’s All Gone, Now.

Can’t Keep It In The “Closet” If You Tell EVERYONE!

HA!

I Beat You, bradley alan!

Assbag!

Thought You Could Hide From Me Like That!

HA!

No No, You’ll Not Be Smoking Anymore On MY Watch.

BRADLEY ALAN Is Back In Control.

🙂

Thank You To “ROCKY” For Showing Me It’s Alright To Fail At One Goal, If You’ve Achieved A Different One In The Process.

😀

Thank You To “ROCKY II” For Showing Me That Taking Another Shot Might Just Net Me A Goddamn Title!

😀       😀

I Am Now Going To Treat Myself  To “ROCKY III” Because I’ve Been Such A Good Boy, Tonight.

ROCKY III” Is “MY FAVORITE” Of The “ROCKY” Flicks.

ROCKY” Is Arguably “THE BEST”.

ROCKY II” Is “VASTLY UNDERRATED”.

ROCKY III” Is “MY FAVORITE”.

ROCKY IV” Is “THE BALLS”.

ROCKY V” Is “THE HEART”.

ROCKY BALBOA” Is “THE HEARTIER HEART”.

How to end up handcuffed backstage at an REO Speedwagon concert.

The Title Of This Piece Alone Was Going To Be Enough To Get It A Close Look At Being Reblogged. After Reading The Whole Story, I Was Totally Sold. This Piece Made Me Smile, Something I Haven’t Done A Lot Of, Of Late.
Very Cool Beans, Indeed. 🙂

Cave of Fame

I need some kind of rock n roll diploma to hang by my computer to justify me as a blogger of rock music; so I will tell this story from 1982.

My taste in music is not always as good as I think- now or in the past

Case in point:

 I once was an REO Speedwagon fanatic.

I am not proud of this but I admit that I may still own the entire REO Speedwagon catalogue. (at least up until the incident in the title)…yes, even those obscure records before Kevin Cronin took over as lead singer-And it gets worse:

I proudly wore a R.E.O belt buckle that I bought at the county fair. Back in the good ol’ days when copyright infringement was not farmed out to Asian countries; we made quality fake stuff right here in the U.S.A!!

While my friends were listening to Pink Floyd…

Renee Writes Here

fleeting-copyright-indira-mukherjee

Shrooms shared with strangers.

Rebellious young woman, aboard a technicolor bus.

Trees are blue.

Sky,  green.

Tasting colors and seeing sounds.

Voices come to Melanie like the droning of adults on Charlie Brown cartoons.

Wah, wah, wah, wah….

Nonsense.

Thought there’d be free love.

No such thing.

Everything has a price.

Even sex without that word.

Wanted to be enlightened; intellectual.

Have to get off this bus now.

To go home.

Covered in grime from days with strangers.

Will a hot shower remove the dirt?

Of past, present, future?

Melanie exits the bus.

Extends thumb, to begin her journey home.
