Dredd!

Well it’s finally here and it looks great. It’s the teaser for the proper interpretation of the iconic ass-kicking Judge from the future, Dredd.

Dredd fans have been waiting since the 90s, and it’s one of my most anticipated movies of 2012. After the Stallone version, it’s time for the Mega-City anti-hero to be given some respect and from this teaser it looks like he has. Personally, I would have preferred Mickey Rourke as the lawman, both for size and age but Karl Urban looks like he will pull it off. So take a look and let us know what you think.

Dredd is due for release on September 21, 2012.

10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2012

Being an avid movie watcher, I use the term “movie” to includes both blockbusters and those busters that are somewhat less than blocky. I am constantly waiting on new reels of escapism. Unfortunately, with the film industry going gaga (not of the Lady variety) for 3D and apeshit for reboots and remakes, the offerings are few and far between.

Even though I’m a movie fan and not a film connoisseur, it’s very hard to look forward to anything that doesn’t fit into one of the aforementioned categories. So when prawn1 asked me to make a note of five—yes, Five!—movies that I have been looking forward to seeing this year, it was difficult to list to compile. Who does he think I am? Barry Ronge? However, I have done better than the five he originally asked, and I’ve found not seven, not nine, but a whole ten movies that I would (whether willingly or grudgingly) pay the ridiculous ticket fee to see. Find out what my fantastic choices are—in no particular order—after the jump.
