    Right ... here why theend of the Stallone Dredd movie made me mad ...

    He comes out of the building, at the end, and they all cheer him ... right?

    He is the hero. He has saved the day ... we know that ...

    But they have no idea as to what has happened yet ...

    He was a wanted man, they would have at least dived on him, and arrested him, if not just gunned him down ...

    I totally agree. In the comics they would've killed Dreed, probably by demolishing the building. The movie was a fun watch but a craaaaaap Dredd movie. Hell, Dredd had friends. WTF?!? I wish they'd make a good Rogue Trooper movie.

    I want a pile of cash and a time machine ... and we shall have the true Dredd movie ...

    I shall go back to the early 70s, and get Clint Eastwood [​IMG]



    Yeah, Rogue Trooper would be cool, but not as cool as a Halo Jones movie, or a D.R. & Quinch animation, made by Ralph Bakshi [​IMG]

    Now you're just dreaming! lol That would be pretty damned awesome. I think I'm gonna have to dig out some of my old 2000ADs and have a nostalgia session.

    That's a damned good question. I used to think Lori Petty could have pulled it off just cos of the way she was in Tank Girl, but these days I'm not so sure. I'll have to have a think. There ain't alot of actresses with the attitude these days.

    Exactly ... it keeps geeting optioned ... with genuine intent to be made ... but they can't cast it ...

    Just like what's happening with the Captain America movie, right now ...

    Damn that sucks. It would make a great movie, so would Captain America. Comic book movies are gettng alot better these days but sci-fi has really lost it's way these days. It's all humans vs aliens these days. You don't know anything about the Neuromancer movie do you? I heard talk about it a while back but nothing since.

    Neuromancer keeps getting passed around ... loads of script changes, and director changes, and all sorts ...

    Typical big option ... everyone wants to do it, but no-one wants to do it ...

    Ever see New Rose hotel ... ?

    Damn, I'm really looking forward to it although I really don't know who's capable of actually pulling it off without making it go all bubblegummy. Not seen New Rose Hotel, what's it like?

    How have I not seen that movie! It's got some of my favourite actors, Asia Argento and it's directed by Abel Ferrara, how in the hell did that one slip under my radar. I'm gonna hunt a copy down now.
