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.

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so! Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below: Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible. From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. G

Long Way Up | Average Guy TV Review

Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, and the Long Way Round team are finally back for their third epic adventure, and given how 2020 has turned out, they did it just in time. Right now it's the closest we can get to experiencing these far off places, making 'Long Way Up' a perfect piece of escapism. Beginning their trip at the southern most tip of South America, in Ushuaia, they'll travel 13,000 miles through 13 countries. Their route will have them criss-cross between Argentina and Chile, before entering Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and the US, crossing the finish line in Los Angeles. This new adventure is quite different to their previous outings, and yet it all feels very familiar. Despite the gang being more than a decade older - not to mention some pretty life-changing motorcycle accidents for Charley along the way - the gang really haven't changed all that much. Not that that should come as much of a s
