Bleeding Cool now understands that Karl Urban will be offered the role of Judge Dredd in the new movie. Or at least Judge Dredd’s chin. Because one of the main provisos of the deal is that, just as in the comic, Judge Dredd will not remove his helmet. But of course that chin will now be seen in glorious three dimensions. And, contract willing, Karl Urban is of a mind to accept it.

Thor footage from Comic Con. There have been reports of script trouble, but I think this looks good.

Which is actually why I loved it!

Watchmen's a boring story.  Half of it is a tedious re-kindled love affair obsessed with a troubled past, and the other half is a moody misanthrope creeping around.  All with the occasional shocker to keep us moving on to the next issue.

Somehow, it comes through as genius in book form... But, yes, it's hard to do that in a movie. The fact that they tried warmed my heart.

I think the movie version of Watchmen is better than the book.

Both were good.

Lord of the Rings movies were definitely better than the book, but I lean pretty strongly towards Watchmen as being best as comic book.

Call me a simpleton, but I thought the way the story was streamlined for the film adaptation actually made it a wee bit more engaging. I love Alan Moore. He's brilliant. However, he can get pretty tangential sometimes. The book is it's own beats I suppose, It's a commentary of the comic book superhero, so obviously it's purer as a graphic novel. I just thought the movie was a little less boring.

Let's get drunk and fight over episode 5 of "Blake's 7!"

Episode five is fucked up!  Callie is under mind control and acting weird the whole time and, meanwhile, Blake inadvertently enables a group of aliens to commit genocide.

Blake's 7 was great.
