(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-

BRADLEY -Vs- “DARK CITY”: A Rematch 15 Years In The Making!

Opening Night.

1998.

I Was There.

I’ll Never Forget That Night, Honestly.

Dark_City_poster (via Wikipedia)

My Friends And I Had Decided Long Before It Was Released We Would Be Seeing This One On Said Opening Night.

Back In The 1980s And 1990s, That’s What Everyone Did On A Friday Night. You’d Meet-Up With Your Friends And You’d Head To The Local Movie Theater.

It Was Almost Like A Ritual. We Simply HAD HAD HAD To Go See Something.

Living In A Small Midwestern Town, It’s What We Had To Do.

It Was Our Best Option For Having A Good Time. It Was Either That, Or Go Walk Around The Mall.

I Know, Right, We Were Lame.

ANYWAY…

…We All Loaded-Up And Drove A Few Towns Over To The Much Larger Theater.

It’s About A 25-Minute Drive.

(((well we probably made it in less than 20-minutes, but it's SUPPOSED to take longer)))

Upon Entering The Theater, I Was Immediately Horrified To Find It Totally Packed.

The Only Seats Left Weren’t Ideal, To Say The Least.

We Took Said Seats, Anyway.

We Weren’t About To Miss This Flick.

Period.

Sadly, The Theater Was BLAZING-ASS-HOT!

Not Hot As In “Hip & Cool”…

…No…

…I Mean It Was F-in’ HOT HOT HOT Like Hell’ishly HOT!

Like 714-Degrees HOT!

It Was February, And Therefore Cold Outside.

So, The Theater People Had The Heat Cranked Allllll The Way Up.

That’s How It Felt, Anyway.

Couple That With A Totally Packed House, And Yeah.

HOT HOT HOT!!!

The People Sitting In Front Of My Friends And I Never Stopped Gabbing. Someone’s Pocket-Pager Went Off Like 10-Times. I Couldn’t Follow The Plot Very Well Because Of The Distractions And Became Very Confused As To What The Hell Was Really Going On.

It Was All Too Much.

Add In The Fact That “DARK CITY” Is A Dark, Slower-Paced Thriller And It Becomes Easier To Understand Why I Left The Theater Afterward Vowing To NEVER Watch This Flick Ever Ever EVER AGAIN!

And I Didn’t.

For 15 Years, My Vow Stood Strong And Unwavering.

That Is, Until Very Recently.

Seeing “DARK CITY” On Opening Night Was THE WORST THEATER EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE.

Period.

It Had Totally Tainted My View Of The Movie.

You See, I Took-Out My Frustrations Of The Night On The Film. I Shouldn’t Have, But I Did.

My Bad.

Upon Watching It Again, Finally, After 15 Years, I Finally Realized I Had Made A Horrid Mistake.

DARK CITY” Really Is A Quality Flick, My Peeps.

Watching It In The Comfort Of My Own Home, Without Distractions, I Was Able To Finally Appreciate It For What It Is.

A Very Good SCI-FI THRILLER.

It’s Well Acted.

(((starring RUFUS SEWELL, KIEFER SUTHERLAND, JENNIFER CONNELLY, and WILLIAM HURT)))

It’s Well Directed.

(((craftily done by ALEX PROYAS whom also directed another favorite of mine "THE CROW")))

The Sets And Special F/X Are Very Cool.

The Plot Can Be A Touch Confusing At Times, But You’ll Eventually Get It In The End.

All In All, I Was Saddened It Had Taken Me So Long To Finally Give It Another Chance.

BUT, In The End, I’m Super Glad I Did.

DARK CITY” Deserved Better Than What It Got.

It Deserved Better Than What I Gave It.

SO, Here I Am, Trying To Rectify The Problem.

😀

If You’ve Seen This One, GREAT.

If You’ve Not, Well, DO SO.

Some People Can’t Get Enough Of “DARK CITY“…

…Some People Can’t F-in’ Stand It.

WHICH ONE ARE YOU?!??!?

My Curiosity Abounds.

😉     😀     😉

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

Do You See Where This Is Going, Kiddies?!?!?
