Before even watching the trailer of the 2012 adaptation, I decided to go with Sly Stallone’s 1995 Judge Dredd. And to put it nicely, it was way below the expectations I had from it. The only reason I did this was to avoid disappointment a second time after toiling through the remake of “Total Recall”. But the consistently good reviews were persuasive enough to buy this one through Amazon.

Got the Bluray, popped it in the BD player and switched on my 3D TV to see if it was worth the bucks I had shelled out or just another damp squid. An hour and a half later, and I was still in the spellbinding mode that the constant adrenaline had cast over me! I gladly admit that this one has been one of my better investments till date.

Now to the movie, clichéd setup in a survivor city with Hall of Justice being the only entity working to maintain order in the chaos. Car chase and a routine investigation which goes wrong when Dredd along with a rookie gets stuck in a tower complex to survive the assault of unscrupulous narcotics distribution syndicate.  Now without getting into details, the movie scores where the 1995 version failed. Dredd in this is a ruthless, hard-boiled hunter without being mellow in his approach. The action sequences are fresh and very well-shot and the whole environment lends a noir feeling to the story.

And the most pleasant aspects are definitely the way 3D effects have been used. A couple of scenes where characters are shown under the influence of Slo-Mo (which by the way tends to slow down time to 1% in the inhaler’s brain) as well as the savage shooting and blood spilling that brought out the best of 3D elements within the narration. Personal recommendation from my end as this one’s a must watch for action lovers!

International-CES

It’s that time of the year again that one of the biggest consumer electronic fair kicks off in the jam-packed Las Vegas Convention Centre. I am pretty sure that all the technology-enthusiasts out there would be waiting with bated breath to see all the new innovations that are supposed to be unveiled. What we generally miss is the lighter side of things. Browsing across YouTube I found this really quirky yet humorous video which has been compiled with the honest intent of some light-hearted humor.

All credits to the maker for this thoroughly enjoyable compilation. In all seriousness, I will be covering the interesting products that are unveiled during this consumer electronics fair. But for now, I will leave you with the giggles you get from watching this video!
