There's a certain magical quality to modern day drugs. The tiniest prescribed pill can cure a multitude of medical problems, whilst the tiniest illegally-purchased pill can create the illusion you have cured a multitude of non-medical problems. So it's no wonder Hollywood loves injecting cool ideas about what sorts of human ailments — both physical and spiritual — fictional drugs might be able to treat.
In "Dredd 3D," the latest redux of comic book hero and one-man-justice-system, Judge Dredd, a narcotic named Slo-Mo has hit the streets, allowing its users to experience reality in slow motion (in the future, drug names are very literal). And this got us jonesing for a list of our favorite movie pharmaceuticals we dare you to "just say no" to. Get More »
Olivia Thirlby is ready for action.
A year after fighting off hostile aliens in the little-seen "Darkest Hour," the native New Yorker best known for her work in indie faves "Juno" and "The Wackness" is judging, jurying and executing in "Dredd 3D," a reboot of the 2000AD comic starring Karl Urban in the role Sylvester Stallone once proved expendable.
The difference? There are no Razzies in store for this edition. The film's getting great reviews, and Thirlby's (blonde!) Dredd sidekick Anderson is a large part of why the film whoops serious butt. She told us all about bringing the pain in "Dredd." Get More »
In the past, the extremely detailed, jiggling, bloody cellulite of punctured, tattooed flesh was something that you'd have to go all the way to Japan to see. But with "Dredd 3D," it's playing at a theater near you.
"Dredd 3D," a very entertaining, bone-crunching midnight movie, will linger in Fanboy conversation for quite some time. It'll be Exhibit A whenever someone starts whining about an upcoming remake. "What about 'Dredd,' huh? What about 'Dredd?" I can practically hear the trolls saying now. It's not really a valid argument – because unlike, say, "Total Recall," or "Straw Dogs" or the upcoming "RoboCop" (or the threatened "Videodrome,") the first "Judge Dredd," wasn't, by any measurable accounts, any good.
Rather than focus on it being this being exception to the RAB rule (RAB standing for Remakes Always Blow) let's take a step back and applaud "Dredd 3D" for a more noble but less obvious accomplishment. Get More »
Chances are you grew up watching "The Simpsons." So imagine what it'd be like if one day you were offered a role playing Bart (or Maggie) Simpson in a Hollywood blockbuster. Hey, it could happen …
That's sort of what's happened to Karl Urban. The action star best known as Éomer in "Lord of the Rings" and Bones in 2009's "Star Trek" grew up reading the "Judge Dredd" comics as a youth in New Zealand. Now, some 20-odd years later, he's the man behind the mask in the buzzed-about reboot "Dredd 3D."
And no, unlike with Sly Stallone's unfortunate 1995 version of "Judge Dredd," you will not see Urban's full face in this movie. Get More »
