Excerpt: Back in 1995 the iconic comic book characters Judge Dredd finally got his chance on the big white screen with in the lead Sylvester Stallone as the untamable bringer of justice. The result was – to say the least – below expectation and also financially the movie didn’t do all too well, making Judge...
Excerpt: Well, well, well…what have we here? Is it a movie based on a *gasp* comic book? Why yes, yes it is! I’m only kidding, of course, but long time readers of the site will know my stance on movies and the apparent lack of screenwriters in Hollywood.
Excerpt: Comic book adaptations were in their infancy in the 1990s. Inspired by (but not really knowing what to make of the success of) Tim Burton’s Batman , a bunch of comic-book properties were purchased to be made into movies.

Excerpt: In an age where police brutality has become an internet meme, Dredd seems like an anachronism. This sci-fi film has little to say about the current state of our justice system, instead providing 95 minutes of cold, hard escapism. The law is absolute, and the corrupting forces barely stand a chance.
