The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Cormac McCarthy’s bones and Ridley Scott's style do not make The Counselor something more than an interesting curiosity. A film that seems destined more to be remembered as that move where Cameron Diaz does that thing with the car than anything else.
In a dystopian future, Judge Dredd must work together with a rookie judge with psychic powers in order to scale a two hundred floor building and defeat a powerful drug lord named Ma-Ma.
In an interview with COLLIER, Karl Urban--who plays Judge Dredd--says there was never any question that the movie would be a hard R for violence. He said that at no point did the studio pressure them to tone down any scene.
Inhabitants of Peach Trees, this is Judge Dredd. In case you people have forgotten, this block operates under the same rules as the rest of the city. Ma-Ma's not the law. I am the law. Ma-Ma is a common criminal. Guilty of murder, guilty of the manufacture and distribution of the narcotic known as Slo-Mo. And as of now under sentence of death. Any who obstruct me in carrying out my duty will be treated as an accessory to her crimes. You have been warned. And as for you Ma-Ma... judgement time.
