Judge Dredd: Mega-City One | Moustache Reaction


According to Entertainment Weekly, there's a live action Judge Dredd TV show in the works. The unstoppable lawman who polices the sprawling urban chaos that is Mega-City One was created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra back in 1977 for 2000 AD. Dredd has been portrayed in movies by Sylvester Stallone and Karl Urban. Urban's 'Dredd' came out in 2012 and although not a box office hit, it has developed quite a cult following.


IM Global Television president Mark Stern (Battlestar Glactica), IM Global Television CEO Stuart Ford, and Jason and Chris Kingsley who own UK game developer, Rebellion will act as executive producers on the show. Ford and the Kingsleys were executive producers on 'Dredd'.


There have been talks of a sequel to 'Dredd' for quite some time, but it has never gone beyond that. As a fan of the movie, Urban's performance and the world they created, this is something that disappointed me. The show - currently titled Judge Dredd: Mega-City One - is not meant to be a direct follow up to the 2012 movie and is said to follow a team of Judges. At this early stage there are no details regarding casting. But considering Urban has already shown interest in reprising the role and the executive producers of 'Dredd' are involved, wouldn't it be great to see Urban return to Mega-City One?


Who would you like to see play Judge Dredd in this live action reboot? Do you want to see Karl Urban return or would you like to see something more reminiscent of Sylvester Stallone's portrayal? Let us know by leaving a comment below or find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 



In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

Anticipated Movies of 2017

2017 promises an excellent line up of movies, will they live up to expectations? Only time will tell. These are some of my most anticipated movies of 2017:

Assassin's Creed - 1st January



I know it's in cinemas already but it deserves a place on this list. In what could possibly be the first truly successful adaptation of a video game, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the memories of his ancestor Aguilar - a member of a secret society of assassins - thanks to Abstergo, a Templar controlled corporation and their revolutionary technology that unlocks 'genetic memories'.

Live by Night - 13th January



Ben Affleck directs and stars in this crime drama about organised crime in Prohibition Era America and the hunt for the 'American Dream'.

Lion - 20th January

Baby Driver | Average Guy Movie Review

Edgar Wright puts his own spin on the heist/getaway movie in his latest outing. Named after the song by Simon and Garfunkel, Baby Driver tells the story of a skilled getaway driver who suffers from tinnitus, to drown out this "hum in the drum", Baby (Ansel Elgort) is constantly listening to music. In fact, the whole movie is set to music, even the gunshots sync with the beat of whatever song is playing.



It took Wright 16 years to write this script, and then another 6 to bring it to the big screen. But it's a movie that's well worth the wait! The opening chase alone is incredibly fun to watch, yet intelligent and tense as well. I wouldn't blame someone for thinking there's nothing new to do with a car chase, but I'd definitely encourage them to watch Baby Driver before they make up their mind. Especially considering all of the driving was done practically, no CGI or green screen here. Elgort was allowed to do some of the driving and what he couldn't or …
