In terms of 2000ad I’d also really like to see a Slaine film/miniseries (obviously leave out all the sci-fi time travel nonsense that happened later!)


#122

Future Shock- The Story of 2000ad is well worth a watch.


#123

2000AD: Zenith or Nemesis are the main two that I’d look to adapt.

Dredd. Not seen the new film but always felt like it was just a really hard source to adapt well.


#124

You should probably watch the new film. They do about as good a job of adapting as it’s possible to do.


#125

As demonstrated by the Stallone version. Karl Urban nails it though, as did being confined to the block, the look MC1 itself wasn’t as convincing as I’d have liked.


#126

Not having Rob Schneider also makes it miles better by default!


#127

yeah i lived for Tharg’s Future Shock as a kid.

Fuck it shall i get a bunch of dissers to come to comic com with me in May? I already have a couple of lasses and we were going to go as sagat, cammy and chun li but could EASILY theme it differently with more people

I will try to catch it some time. I’m someone who doesn’t throw the Stallone film under a bus, though. He is dreadful as Dredd and the film suffers. I think it’s because he’s a very emotional/human sort of actor while prior to that I’d have said RoboCop is the closest to actual Dredd, right down to the confusion of having an emotional response to something.

That said, I appreciated how the script tried to tie together a few classic stories, put an excellent Hammerstein on screen and - even though I’d have preferred no Angel gang at all - did a half-decent job of them too. The Long Walk was great as was Von Sydow in that role.

But really I just think the marriage of extreme violence and very black humour can be tricky to pull off, and is even harder if you’re also trying to do every other part of your adaptation justice rather than having a clean slate to work off.

dredd is basically The Raid, future edition


#135

I’ve not seen that either.


#136

:expressionless: it’s like pinkerton all over again goddamnit Theo


#137

Well except they both came out at a time when going to see a film was really hard to do due to the child and it’s very rare I’m home alone with enough time/energy to spend on a film.


#138

Theo your child is not to be used as a bullet shield for my ire.


#139

It’s basically Dredd, set in the present


#140

The Pinkerton thing is all me, don’t worry.
