    Movie Review: Dredd 3D | Geeks of Doom

    Travis’ Dredd 3D is a violent, no-holds-barred, post-apocalyptic masterpiece. It amazes me that, in an age of PG-13 horror movies and watered-down, derivative crap, a hard-R sci-fi action movie can be released in theaters with tons of blood and head-exploding awesomeness. Dredd 3D is everything the RoboCop remake should be, but won’t be – a brutal, pulpy tech-noir dressed in the trappings of a bleak, dystopian future.

    As I write this review, Dredd 3D will have only made $6,300,000 this weekend – and that’s ****ing sad. It’s sad that people are more willing to watch the absolutely abysmal House at the end of the Street ($13 Million opening weekend gross) or the SIXTH Resident Evil movie, Resident Evil: Retribution ($6,700,000 this weekend) than an inspired, faithful comic book adaptation with balls – a grindhouse satire that isn’t afraid to skin a few thugs alive.

    If you long for the days when science-fiction action flicks were rated R and sold to actual adults instead of PG-13, bloodless, generic novelties for kids with learner’s permits, then Dredd 3D is a fantastically fun shoot ‘em up with great performances by Urban, Thirlby, Headey, and Avon Barksdale himself, Wood Harris.

    Look, if you’re a geek (and I assume you are), you need to saddle up and go to the theater and see Dredd 3D. It’s Blade Runner meets Die Hard, and I desperately want a sequel with robots, aliens, mutants and bad-ass Karl Urban growling and field-dressing himself with a Predator-esque first aid kit. I AM THE LAW!

    TerryMooreArt - I

    slowcrisis asked: I'm sure you hear this all the time, but I miss Katchoo and the gang. I heard tale that you might be working on another installment of Strangers in Paradise, is this true?

    It’s true. I’m writing a SiP novel that takes place after the series end. Planning a summer 2013 release.
    Sweet!

Certainly, this film is not as broadly acceptable as The Avengers, but, that aside, I think I liked it more than The Avengers. Also might be because I've seen it more recently, though. I'll have to check out The Avengers again on Blu in a hurry, I guess.

    On a side note, I received a free copy of The Avengers from Amazon, because I pre-ordered the Marvel box set, which was subsequently delayed. I thought that was a nice gesture by Amazon.
