SciFi Movie News: Dredd Movie Poster and Photos

I can still hear Stallone as Dredd slurring: “I am the law” in my head. (*shiver*)
I’ve been crazy about Karl Urban ever since his role as Bones in the latest Star Trek film. So, I’m looking forward to seeing an upcoming trailer. It HAS to be better than the 1995 comedic version…. right?


Official Synopsis:
The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge – a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.

During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.

The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film. Filmed in 3D with stunning slow motion photography sequences, the film returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.


DREDD will open on Friday, September 21st, 2012.
“Judgment is Coming.”

Blu-Ray Review: Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island Blu-ray Combo Pack

When Sean (Josh Hutcherson) receives a coded message from his grandfather (Michael Caine), he wants to leave immediately for the fabled “Mysterious Island.” Sean’s mother allows him to go – on the condition that his new step father (Dwayne Johnson) accompanies him. But on the way to this island that shouldn’t exist, their helicopter hits a storm and crashes. Now Sean, his step father, the helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman), and the pilot’s daughter (Vanessa Hudgens) need to find a way off the island. Though it’s full of unexplored wonders, they’re in a race against time to find a way off before the whole island sinks to the ocean floor.

While this is a sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, it’s not necessary to have seen the first installment. Journey 2 is a standalone story, with Sean going on an entirely separate adventure. As before, this adventure is immersed in classic science fiction. Fans of classic scifi, young and old, will enjoy the numerous references and Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island brought to new heights. With creatures of humorous sizes, a volcano full of gold, and other bizarre secrets – this island unfortunately can’t be fully explored because of an unfortunate timetable. Of course, suspension of belief must be held for most science fiction movies (especially geared towards children), but the sinking of the island really pushes it.

But for the most part, this was a surprisingly enjoyable, if mostly corny and predictable, movie for young families. While a fast-paced adventure, there is no violence or profanity, so even very young children can enjoy (as long as they don’t mind the occasional giant bug). The acting is good for a heart-warming family film. Hutcherson (“Hunger Games”) and Dwane “The Rock” Johnson of course steer the story. And the supporting cast provides comedy relief and a cute romantic interest for Sean. Johnson has been doing a lot of family movies lately, and this may be one of his more watchable ones. I love that he can laugh at himself and still be a strong character. All-in-all Journey 2 is a cute, clean, family movie that won’t make you think too much and will entertain the kids.
