Dredd ReviewDredd Review by Kurvos
After the failed attempt in 1995 to adapt the Judge Dredd comics into a live action movie starring Sylvester Stallone only resulting in it being a dumb guilty pleasure at best, there was a big chance that would kill chances for a faithful adaptation to ever be produced. Everyone mainstream has viewed Judge Dredd as a joke over the years, in the same fashion people did with Batman after the Adam West TV Show. But just like with Tim Burton giving Batman a more serious dark take in 1989, a unknown director named Peter Travis gave us a more serious dark take on Dredd last year.
However, the first time I saw a trailer of it, I was very "meh, whatever" towards it, just viewing it as "yet another remake of a action movie". But then I realized... it isn't a remake at all. It's a re-imagining. And heck, it's rather low budget for a "high budget cinematic" movie. 30 million dollars... half as much as Predators costed, which was also considered a low budget cinematic action flick. That could only
Top 10 Most Unoriginal Movies Of All TimeTop 10 Most Unoriginal Movies Of All Time by Kurvos
I think a worse crime a movie can make than being bad is to literally have nothing new to give the audience. Might be a movie people still enjoy or even love - but since they just in the movie use what is always being used in movies, that means they do not need to think about how to make it and just automatically make them, soulless and feeling pointless to people like me.
It's all a matter of opinion maybe either way, but here we go.
10. The Shawshank Redemption
Not only do I think this is the most overrated movie of all time... but it's also incredibly unoriginal to me. It's just another prison break movie, with absolutely no new interesting twists. Yeah, it might have themes and questions in it people find interesting - but is it so wrong to have originality to go with it? It's really predictable, all the way through.
9. Van Helsing
You typecast Hugh Jackman to play the exact same character as in X-Men, but a vampire hunter instead... including havi

Tomorrow is where ISP will spy on internet users and starts the governments bidding on us! Do what every you can to sign against this now!
Pass this around and make sure to save your information and other files in CD's, Flash Drives, anything you can use. Get rid of downloaded Copyright software and/or Programs, and illiegal Music and Videos. They can use it against you.
In summary, all major American ISP's are implementing a system to spy on their users in order to police copyright infringement. There was no legal debate let alone any discussion with the users, and this decision was simply taken and will be applied starting 1 or 12 July. Users considered to be infringing copyright will be punished in several ways... such as their internet being cut off, selective websites being censored, their bandwidth being lowered, and if the offense is repeated users will be constrained to go to special copyrig
Something to think aboutI've been watching some of the Behind the Scenes features on my old Star Wars DVDs (since the Blu-Ray trilogy sets I own don't have any bonus features).Something to think about by StarWarsPrequelFans
One particular documentary I enjoyed was "From Puppets to Pixels" on the Ep. II DVD, which documents the making of some of the digital creatures in the film, most notably the digital Yoda. I found this documentary to be quite interesting, since the animators who created the CGI Yoda carefully studied Frank Oz's puppeteer work in Ep. V and tried to incorporate some of the puppet Yoda's movements, though still making it more realistic. Not only that, but they spent a lot of time making the skin textures and hair looking just right. They even consulted with Frank Oz himself, and he applauded their work.
I bring this up because the Prequel-haters really do not understand how much work goes into computer animation. CGI requires just as much work as traditional 2D animation or animatronics. So whenever the haters criticize the Prequels for h
Movie licensed games sucks... except...once i wrote a comment on a review of a movie licensed game. the review was basically negative, and the ni commented "movie licensed games always sycks." (that not EXACTLY what i wrote but that was the point). it got thumbs up and the comment became a officeal top comment.Movie licensed games sucks... except... by Morggehan
in the weeks following the comment was seen, i got a number of replies saying "Goldeneye 007 wasn't bad!"
i admit, i played a james bond game on my nintendo. not goldeneye, but it was a James Bond game on nintendo 64. it was fun, even had my neighbour over to play some. it was a novelty at the time: multiplayer FPS... years before call of duty.
my small problem is that it seemed like this is the ONLY good Movie licensed game... or is it? do you have any examples?
