Must See Movies 2012 #5: Total Recall, Resident Evil & Dredd (and others)
Over the next two months, there are three movies I cannot miss and some others I will try my best to see.
at the end of this week today is the remake of Total Recall. I loved the original with Arnie and am hoping that Colin Farrell won’t let me down. I don’t expect it to be better than the original, and am not going to walk in comparing them, but the trailer looks pretty kick-ass so I have a little bit of hope.
In the middle of September, the day after my birthday actually, comes Resident Evil Retribution. Honestly I think this series of movies has been going on for way too long, but it has zombies and Milla Jovovich, so it’s a must see! 🙂
At the end of September, comes a movie that I have been hoping for since the first attempt in 1995. That movie of course is Dredd 3D.
When I was in boarding school, every Friday afternoon would be spent at the bookstore in town reading the latest 2000AD comic. If I couldn’t read all of it, I would make sure that I had read at least the Judge Dredd part.
When I heard about the first movie in 1995, I was excited beyond words, until I watched it. It sucked and that is all I have to say about it…
Fast forward a few years (13 to be exact) and it was announced that Alex Garland (28 Days Later) would be the writer of the new movie. Reviews of the initial screening of the movie have been positive with IGN giving it a 8/10. Even better has been the talk of a Dredd being a trilogy (did I mention how excited I am?)
In summary here are the films to look out up to the end of September, including the above:
Now: Expendables 2
Coming up: Total Recall
Week 1: The Watch
Week 2: Resident Evil Retribution
Week 3: The Bourne Legacy
Week 4: Dredd 3D
