    Awesome! I really enjoyed the recent Dredd and thought Karl Urban nailed the character. It did miss a lot of the wackiness from the comics but it was a great start. Karl has said he'd like to reprise the role in a TV series too.

    Yeah I hope he comes back as Dredd though it sounds like this show is going to focus more on other judges (which would still be cool).

    I though the latest one was pretty awfull

    but I see the appeal for a TV show. Another police investigation drama show to the pile

    but it'll be a futuristic police show! With lots of summary executions and gunfights :p

    I'm just wondering what channel it's going to be on.

    Hopefully one which will be able to let the show be as violent as the source material.

    Are you implying you thought the Sylvester Stallone one was better?

    The last one was an awesome, straightforward action movie, I liked it even better than the similar "The Raid." Lena Headey was awesome and so were the "slo-mo" scenes.

    ^completely agree here, I liked the last one a lot, a film to consider, the Stallone one isn't even there to compare.

    I though it was pretty cheesy and bit over the top, and didnt like the acting.

    The Stalone one, cant really say anything since forever I would have my impression of when I saw it when I was a kid. Although is not technically great for today's standards, in the back of my mind it would always be "awesome"

    I know next to nothing about Judge Dredd beyond the video game from 2003, but came in to possession of a theater promo for the 2012 movie, so I had to watch it. Gotta agree that it was awesome in it's hyper specific manner.

    Urban was great in the latest film. And I thought the film was pretty awesome, too!

    Really enjoyed Karl Urban as Dredd and though the movie was pretty good. I'd love to see him in a Dredd TV show.

    I remember when the Stallone version came out. A friend won some tickets through a radio promo and invited me along. When Stallone somehow yelled and simultaneously mumbled "IEMTHERLORR" half the theater burst out laughing...what a turd of a movie.

    The 90s Dredd took everything bad about the 90s batmans with Clooney/Kilmer and cranked it to 11. It tried to make Dredd a family movie. Now the latest one was incredible. Curious to see who picks this up.

    While I enjoyed the recent take on Dredd I feel that just like the Stallone version it misses the point because Dredd isn't a character who should be taken 100% seriously as the Dredd comics are a satire/parody of American policing and characters such as Dirty Harry/The Punisher etc whilst also working in themes about big business, authoritarianism and pop culture.

    hopefully the series will be a lot more serious and draw more from the comics.

    as corny as the stallone vesion is, its still a cult classic. i watch it at least once a year lol.

    to this day asks, where we are gonna eat, i always say... "im going to be taking you to taco bell"
