AICwHK - Harry Chats with Karl Urban & Tim Burton & discusses the 1st 2 episodes of Season 3 of WALKING DEAD!!

Hey folks, Harry here...  

I really do like this episode.  

I love the strange awesome unearthly glow to the basement that would bring so much magic from Madame Leota's Magic Globe.  

We talk with Karl Urban about DREDD 3D and I attempt to get Karl to crack on STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS.   But I kick off the episode with a spoiler free look at the first two episodes of Season 3 of THE WALKING DEAD - which takes us to The Prison...  at last...  and it's awesome!  

Come enjoy some fun times in the Basement this week.   I really can't believe I got Tim Burton into the Magic Globe!

    You did us proud with Dredd Mr Urban.

    Shame on any of you geeks who didn't see it at the cinema. You'll catch on eventually, here's hoping we get a sequel.

    No chance that Dredd gets a sequel

    by Detective_Fingerling

    It's budget was $50 million and its just barely about to get to $13 million and it will be pushed out of theatres in the next week or two with the coming Halloween flix.

    Harry: *I just revisited Season Two [of Walking Dead] on Blu-ray...*

    by Jacob Underhill

    So you had a spare 13 hours or so where you didn't have to frantically save the site or put out new, relevant columns? And you used it to *revisit* a TV show from last year. Good for you, you deserved it.

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 11:41 a.m. CST

    Dredd was awesome

    by redtom

    Suffered through the 3D though, as it gives me an awful headache and there was no option anywhere to see it in 2D. Definite purchase on bluray however, and I can only hope it becomes a hit on dvd/bluray and we get more somewhere down the line. If you haven't seen it and still can, go.

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 11:42 a.m. CST

    US audiences avoiding Dredd is pathetic and shameful.

    by Quake II

    I've seen Dredd 3-D five times now. I told everyone I know (none of them had any interest in seeing it) to go see Dredd in theaters immediately. Everyone who went loved it. US audiences are fucking dolts and deserve a Spider-Man reboot every 10 years, SAW XII and a thousand Transformers sequels.

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 11:57 a.m. CST

    Dredd proves something: Being more faithful to the source

    by frank

    doesnt necessarily mean that you ll become a mainstream movie hit. That's why i always laughed at the fans who were claiming that Sly's original failed in the BO because he didnt kept wearing his helmet the whole time like in the comics. Or because the movie didnt have enough social satire. Lesson to be learned here: You want money for coke and whores? Commercialize your IPs, make them as much accessible as possible for the mainstream audience, dont respect the source but cater to the desires of the lowest common denominator. Learn from the master of the trade: Peter Jackson. See what he did to Tolkien's masterful work. That's how you make a lot of money. Karl Urban kept his helmet on. And what happened? The movie flopped in the BO.

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 12:01 p.m. CST

    Ah, concluding with a rape joke, of sorts.

    by MovieManStill

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 12:02 p.m. CST

    And Dredd will find an audience, just not in theaters.

    by Quake II

    The 3-D was some of the best I've seen and sadly most people will never know how beautiful the Slo-Mo scenes looked on the big screen. Download the Dredd soundtrack from Amazon or Apple if you get the chance, it's fantastic driving music.

  • movie instead of trying to adapt some other excellent IPs of theirs. Not only it would have been easier for them to find bigger budgets for those adaptations but the chance to become international hits would have been better since they are more interesting attractions. How about a space western with bounty hunters and bandits like Strontium Dog? Or a futuristic 50s pulp scifi movie with giant insects and dog/human hybrids as soldiers fighting them? have Vin Diesel play Gene Hackman with the aid of the Avatar CGI tech. Or an animation series of Sakara? you cant find more psychedelic world than this. But now it is too late. Dredd is a flop and 2000AD will never manage to adapt their other IPs..shame..

    When did you stop reading, Harry?

    by idonotseekabanning

    I'm slowly coming to the conclusion, thanks to AICwHK, that you've developed a real contempt for reading. When did that happen? All right. Maybe "contempt" is too strong a word. It seems, though, that on multiple occasions you've had guests over to talk about their books or the books of others, and you've said up front that you haven't read the book, and you've made little indication that you intend to. I was really surprised when you said you hadn't read Massa's book. I get that you were going for some sort of playful antagonism (it didn't come across as being all that playful at times, but I at least got the sense you were trying for playful), but I figured you'd jump at the chance to read a friend's book. You reviewed that fake Prometheus script some time ago, so I guess you were still reading back then. Maybe you've switched to reading only scripts. I guess I kinda had the impression that you no longer read books, but that you still read comics. Now I'm beginning to think you've quit reading even those. Does it come down to you being too busy to read? I guess movies and shows and the such are all pretty easily and quickly digested in comparison to books, and you *do* write for a movie site, so it would make some kind of sense if you've put reading way down on your list of priorities. Then again, maybe I'm way off, and you're reading all the time. If that's the case, what are you reading? Is it mostly scripts? Are you reading any books? Which ones?

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 1:31 p.m. CST

    The last episode I'll watch.

    by JP

    The reasons? Harry shows off his Burton book - with personalized autograph - that you don't have. Harry shows off his Dredd badge that you don't have. Harry gloats over Walking Dead episodes that you havn't seen. Harry gloats over Cloud Atlas that you havn't seen. He's like the kid who always had the best toys, and wanted you to KNOW it. Grow up man. Done.

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 1:38 p.m. CST

    hope for Dredd

    by solitaire

    Best we can hope for is this: That it does well enough on dvd that Urban and co. get funding for a part two on dvd. Now, in an ideal world, Dredd would have cleaned up, part two would have him crossing the Cursed Earth and encountering mutants, dinosaurs and all other nasties, and part three would have the dark judges with Doug Jones as Judge Death. This being the world we live in, chances of the sequel are slim at best and those assholes behind meet the spartans keep getting funded. go figure.

  • So how would mainstream american audiences know/care if it was true to the comics, when they themselves don't even know what the hell Dredd is?

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 3:44 p.m. CST

    So someone shaved an orangutang and named it Harry?

    renetabard..I don't consider Dredd a reboot.

    by Quake II

    The Amazing Spider-Man was a reboot by the exact same company that made the original. Dredd has nothing to do with the 1995 Judge Dredd other than the comic it's based upon. I don't consider the newer Fantastic 4 or Captain America films reboots of the horrible 1990's direct-to-video versions or Punisher War Zone a reboot of the Dolph Lundgren Punisher. My point was that the masses will FLOCK to the exact same film over and over (SAW,the latest little kid possessed movie,Transformers 15, Paranormal Activity 4, superhero remakes etc) but willl ignore cool little films like Dredd that bring a lot to the table and pretty much deliver on every level. Audiences don't take chances so they get exactly what they deserve over and over.

    You spelled orangutan incorrectly. Also, the way you spelled it indicates you've been pronouncing it incorrectly you're whole life. Also, making cracks about Harry's appearance is mean. Fuck off you big, dumb bully.

  • Dredd will find an audience but sadly it may not be enough to guarantee a sequel. Daredevil bombed in the theater but had very healthy dvd sales. I remember a sequel was being discussed for a while thanks to great rental and sale numbers.

    by DrGogol

    needs to evolve. I tire of his movies.

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 5:44 p.m. CST

    Daredevil bombed in the BO? that's a new one.

    by frank

    it cost $78m and it grossed 100m in the usa market and another 80m in the international. No it is not a big hit but calling it a bomb is far fetched.

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 5:51 p.m. CST

    @Mr trevoasisr

    by albert comin

    It's "your" not "you're". "You're" is a contraction of "you are". If you are going to be a grammar nazi on somebody, you shouldn't make such an obvious mistake. Oranguthan is a somewhart exotic word (due to it's origin in a native language from Indonesia, it means "Woods Man") so it's easy to mispell. "Your" is a very common word in daily use, so you don't have a such a justification. I learned one thing quite some time ago: don't go grammar nazi on anybody, because it will always bite you in the ass. Always. The point being: critice the ideas, not the grammar if you can actually understand what's being said, spelling aside.

  • Oct. 11, 2012, 5:52 p.m. CST

    actually, Tim Burton

    by Monnie Knapp

    Needs to evolve physically. How about some wings or a third penis? A second head wouldn't be bad, hopefully the head of either an old white racist dude or Roosevelt Grier or Teddy Roosevelt... so hard to decide.

    Dark Shadows was the hands-down worst movie I've seen in the past five years! Burton wishes he had Ed Wood's talent at this point. The movie shit on its source material. Not just shit, fucking diarrhea. FUCKING DIARRHEA! Outside of that it was an unwatchable puddle of pus. I'm ashamed of you, Burton. Fuck you.

    To be fair...

    by C0CKLES

    ...just like it's waning political influence, the US BO isn't the be all and end all of a movie. Dredd 3D will do best on DVD and Blu-Ray and hopefully bring in enough. At the end of the day, is a mega budget Dredd movie for the 2nd (hopefully) Urban version a good thing? Bye bye creativity....hello CGI for the sake of it like most big buck movies.

  • Oct. 12, 2012, 7:26 a.m. CST

    Also....

    by C0CKLES

    $50-70 million budget for Dredd 3D? As much as I love the movie, that figure is quite laughable. Hollywood needs to look how it makes movies, budgets are spiraling out of control left right and centre and what we see on screen just doesn't match the cost behind it. Perhaps they could get this guy to make the Death one on a budget? http://vimeo.com/51138699

  • Oct. 12, 2012, 9:17 a.m. CST

    DREDD was also given a shitty release date

    by Autodidact

    District 9 was made for only $30 mil

    by Steve Lamarre

    and that went on to gross around $100 million. It had a better release date than Dredd. Hopefully Dredd does well with dvd/bluray. It did make an additional 10 million overseas, with a gross of 23 million. But even the 1995 Judge Dredd made a good deal more.

    by Richard

    Yeah, the prison is what alot of the comic fans have been chomping at the bit for. I've read that they may be using the prison for more than one season. Wouldn't bother me a bit. Unlike the farm, I'll be disappointed when they leave the prison. Some of the stuff that happens in the comics after the prison doesn't excite me as much as the prison stuff does. Although, they've already visited some of the stuff for the prison in season 2. The whole "we are the walking dead!" thing was at the end of the season, as well as Rick's determination to hang a prisoner after he tries to kill Andrea. I said that without a spoiler warning because I doubt they'll go that route when they just got done with a similar situation with Randall.

    R.I.P. Dredd. 9/21-10/11

    by Quake II

    Dredd has been pulled from every Tucson theater as of thursday. Coolest film of the year lasted a whole three weeks. Pathetic. End Of fucking Watch will probably be in theaters for a couple months. The masses are asses but I personally got 5 people to see Dredd due to my constant nagging. None were going to see it originally. They all loved it and a couple thanked me saying they were so glad they experienced the Slo-Mo scenes in 3-D on the big screen.

    Dredd flopped

    by Jeff

    Problems with Dredd. #1. The violence was horror movie style rather than action movie style. #2. Too many of the "villians" were just poor, unemployed people. Judge Anderson blowing off the dudes head in cold blood was awesome until you realize he was basically forced into service by Mama's gang. Social commentary? Yes. Awesome carthisis of bad guys getting their judgement? No. #3. The building's art design looked too stagey. #4. Not enough challenge for Dredd. No challenge = no jeopardy. #5. Dude with the eyes ripped out was gross and pointless. The movie bombed because nobody wants to watch a fascist cop killing poor people for two hours.

    by the1980mutant

    I wanted to see Dredd bad, but i have to work and balance family/food. I think a lot of geeks are this way. Some folks live at home(parents) still, and are waiting to get jobs. If you speak of America, there is a ton of middle class kids, who were told their field would give them jobs and then didnt. these are a lot of 18-35.....I know 4 friends who were going to Dredd but couldnt just because we were fucking broke.

    by Quake II

    If you read the critics reviews online they are extremely positive. If you read Amazon's reviews from regular people or outgoing audience reactions, they are 90% positive. Dredd didn't bomb due to content or subject matter, it bombed because most people thought it was a remake of the Stallone movie and they stayed FAR away. The commercials were quick cuts of chaos and didn't relay much either. And I never saw Karl Urban on Letterman, Kimmel or Leno promoting it. The "poor people" in the movie took up arms to murder the Judges, they got what they deserved. Shit, Dredd even gave several of them warnings before killing them (including the father that Anderson kills). Ma-Ma didn't force them to go out there and hunt the Judges, she just said the block would stay locked down until someone did. I have trouble sympathizing with violent psychopaths just because they're "poor".

    The Walking Dead...

    Gotta say The Walking Dead is about the biggest and best thing going right now. It takes a lot for me to be into a TV series, but I just love everything about the Walking Dead. Keeps me on the edge, keeps me wanting more, and can't wait for the next weeks episode. For the TV medium (which is probably thr toughest medium for the genre) they just get it right. Skyfall will be the next thing I gt excited for then until the hoopla revs up for the Superhero movies next year..The Walking Dead is it!

    One Dredd wasn't very good but Urban's version kicked ASS.

    Sly's was silly, gaudy and loud.

    Anyone else sick and tired of all this zombie apocalypse bullshit?

    by positivelySlime

    About 15-20 years ago I used to be into the zombie craze...Romero's stuff, Return of the Living Dead, Dead Alive, etc., etc. Always wished that it would make a comeback. Then it did...and it just won't seem to go away. There have been a few good movies to come out of the zombie revival (Shaun of the Dead, 28 Days Later, Zombieland) but seriously...this has been DONE TO DEATH. There is nowhere else to go with this idea. I'm so sick of the term "Zombie Apocalypse" that I can't even get excited about a show like The Walking Dead anymore. My city even has an annual "Zombie Walk" where a bunch of idiots (participation is in the hundreds now) in shitty makeup wander around downtown moaning and generally looking stupid and pissing everyone off. Fuck this "Zombie Apocalypse" crap. Tired of being at the bar and listening to some idiot blaring about what he would do and what his plan is if zombies take over. Zombie Apocalypse Survival kits that people are actually buying. Zombie Apocalypse themed STORES for fucksake. Wish this would all go away. Remember the zombies on the escalator scene in the original Dawn of the Dead? The irony of that image has never rang true more than it does today.

  • Because, while I love 'em, zombie movies are generally excuses to bash and shred a lot of people.

  • And yes, it is getting old. It seems that vampires, zombies and werewolves are being thrown at us constantly. Demon possessed kids are also the rage right now. That said I do watch The Walking Dead but mainly for the characters and story, NOT to see zombies getting killed. By the time World War Z comes out I think everyone will have zombie fatigue.

    Solving crimes and shit.

  • I have the DVD and it's in HD on Netflix. Looks pretty good. It's cooler than I remember. Lot of Fallout 3 type feeling to it.

    Sadly no one cares about Dredd in the US and it tanked hard. 6 million opening weekend with no real competition is pathetic. End Of Watch made 13 million the same weekend and was the #1 film (a weak opening as well). Dredd is awesome, most people love it and hopefully it will make bank in the home video/cable tv market. Hopefully for Dredd, justice WILL be served.
