Dredd

So I saw Dredd the other day and it kinda surprised me. I was expecting something like Total Recall this year where it's an good movie but cannot compare to the original, but to me Dredd was just as good as Judge Dredd. I mean, Stallone's power is missed, but Karl Urban actually does good in his own regard keeping Dredd structured and almost robotic but angry as well. Olivia Thirlby does an great job as Anderson as well, very likeable and goes convincingly from sacred to bad ass. Lena Headey however ended up being an awesome draw as well as Mama, definitely an highlight for me.

My only complaints are that the movie seems a bit constrained as it mainly only takes place in one 200 story building except for the opening. The gratuitous use of slow motion also gets an little old after an while since it happens with each use of the drug. But with each look back upon the movie, i just seem to like it more and more. I think I'll end up seeing it again as well. :3

On other news, I saw an new trailer for The Hobbit in theaters and it rather disappointed me, the first trailer was serious and dramatic, every time that song played it gave me shivers, but the newest one took all of that away and just made it rather light hearted. I really wish it kept that serious tone, but I am still very much looking forward to it.

Also, as of note, tomorrow will officially be my 100th movie I have seen this year. I can't believe I have seen so many this year do far, makes me wonder what my final total will be this year.

Any who, hope you all have an great day! :3

I'm lucky in that the discount charge showings around here are 5$ or 5.50$ depending on the theater. Matinee before 6 pm usually runs 1$ more and 3D adds 3$ on top of that. Nothing too bad. Course, there is also an cheap theater around that will offer showings between 1$ to 2$ but you have to wait until they are nearly on DVD before they hit there.

Wow.  You're even ahead of me, and I have an Unlimited cinema card. XD

I wish we had unlimited passes around here. I'd love that. Some cinemas don't even have rewards cards here, but one does have an reward program for using their app in 'cinemode' while the movie is playing.

*Nods*  It's a great idea.  It's £14.99 a month and is truly unlimited.  No "fair use" crap or anything.  Since a single ticket is nearly £9 now you only have to see 2 movies a month and that's your money back.  The only cost is if you want to see 3D movies it's an extra £1.50 for each film, but I just had an email saying they were upgrading me since I've been a loyal customer for the last 2 years so they'll be free too now.  XD  On top of that, the cinema is pretty damn big.  20 screens plus iMax, so something is always on.  :P

Oh, I also finally got to see Dredd after two weeks of promising myself to go, and I loved it.  I would in fact say it's better than the first.  Unlike Total Recall, I don't see it as a remake, more of a sequel, since it's a brand new story.

Wow, that sounds great about the card, I really really wish I had something like this. Heh. They would lose all sorts of money on me though.

Considering Dredd, I was actually thinking it more of an prequel rather than an sequel considering the events of the original one. But I'm glad you liked it too. :3

*nods*  true, you're right.  It is more of a prequel actually.  And yeah, I've seen 50+ movies in the past year, so I've definitely made my monies worth on it.  ^^
