i definitely saw similarity in plots between RR and Dredd, idk which one came out first, or if it was pure coincidence.

Dredd was a better movie IMO, but thats what you would expect with the budget they were allocated

RR was good too, i think i will enjoy it more a second time around.

edit: btw im watching Dredd on blu-ray right now and it looks spectacular

Are Dredd and the total recall remake worth buying at these prices? Heard/read mixed reviews on both. Anyone seen Dredd and raid redemption, if so how much of "creative liberties" are "borrowed" from RR?


I've read almost nothing but praise for Dredd. The consensus is not mixed at all.

Also note that The Raid is based on a leaked Dredd script. They basically stole the plot and beat Dredd to market.

Dredd is fan-fucking-tastic (mixed reviews for Dredd? Last I saw it was critically praised). I Will say the advertising for the film was God awful to the point where I was going to call it a Raid knock off after reading the synopsis, but seeing the film was a different experience altogether. So outside of people trapped in a building and working their way to the top, there's nothing similar about the films. The Raid feels like the next step from Tony Jaa films like Ong Bak, while Dredd is a film that feels like it harkens to the day of 80's action films like Robocop where the violence is over the top and filled with dark humor. I Kind of think of it as the sort of movie people like Arnold and Stallone wish they could make at their age.

Total Recall remake though is god fucking awful.

The Total Recall movie never bored me, but it never interested me either. The director is pretty vanilla and doesn't really bring anything to the table. And instead of being a movie that tries to be more like the source material, it just apes heavily from the Schwarzenegger film. It's a glossy and effects-heavy film but it doesn't know what to do with itself.

Total Recall, or as it's also known as, two hours of unnecessary lens flare. I literally couldn't finish the movie, they got to be that annoying. And I wasted a free redbox rental on it.

I didn't care for the Total Recall remake at all.

The Bluray is also problematic--wide spread audio drop out problems. There's a thread about it on Bluray.com and other sites. I rented it from Netflix and got drop outs on both my Sony S590 and my PS3. From the threads it seems like the problem was mostly on Sony players--which is ironic as it's a Sony movie.

Here's the link to the Blu-Ray.com thread about the audio issues:

http://forum.blu-ray...ad.php?t=212328

Their "fix" is to change the audio output settings to PCM, which is a work-around, not a resolution.

The OP of that thread said he had dropout issues with his revised disc, so it's still an ongoing issue at the moment.

It also affects the WM steelbook copies as well as the regular copies in the channel.

I just got back from Best Buy with another round of movies. My BBY had a TON of Dredd 3D, so the shortage definitely isn't chain-wide.

I picked up Dredd 3D, Boondock Saints 2, Old School and Tropic Thunder this time. Turns out the old lady wanted to hold on to one of the "junk" DVDs, so I only had 4 on hand to trade.

Hell of a time at BB today, shocked a clerk and manager! Grabbed Hotel Translyvania, Pitch Perfect, Dark Knight Returns Pt 2 (w/ Figure) and Prototype 2. Headed to the counter with (3) U&S coupons, the Prototype 2 @gamer coupon and Applebees MFG. coupon. Also had $10 in RZ Certs and 3x RZ Points mailer coupon. Everything rung up before hitting total: $111.xx. Totaling dropped it to $68.xx. They took the MFG coupon for the kids movie no problem (this is what caused the manager to come over, he used the MFG coupon before RZ certs which doesn't make RZ certs work, so a post void was needed, the guy kept telling the manager this guy is saving so much, I thought I was going to get denied or the hard eye or something) But it all went thru, and I was out the door for $52.xx! Since the guy was so cool, I even let him check my phone for more coupons b/c he asked like twice (musta been trying to meet a quota or something) and iso tearing off one coupon, he accidentally teared off 3 and he gave me my 3x RX points coupon back as well.

Good times!! :D

Thanks to whom ever posted the shallow hal/me myself & Irene, and the smoking aces 2 pack. Got a total of 10 movies for 37.xx. The Kevin Smith 3 pack was marked 14.99 in one spot and 4.99, it rang up 14.99 but I had pulled the cheaper price tag and took it up. He was cool about doing a changing the price.

Ended up getting :
The dark Knight returns part 2
The departed
Planes trains & automobiles
Smoking aces 1&2
Shallow hal/mm&i
Chasing amy/clerks/Jay & silent Bob strike back

I stopped at Best Buy over lunch, and left with more than I was expecting. I ended up getting the following:

Dark Knight Returns Part 2 ($10)
Rocky: The Undisputed Collection ($18)
Seven Psycopaths ($15)
Iron Sky ($13)

I finally broke down and decided to pick up Iron Sky, even though the blu ray version wasn't on sale. I also stopped by on Sunday and picked up Chronicle for $7. They had a big restock of all of the Triple pack movies on Sunday, once the prices went back up to $15. I was a bit annoyed that they "didn't have them in stock" late Saturday, but had shelves full of them the following day. Although it's only a $5 difference, I didn't really need TMNT or Oceans anyway.

That's why I always go in first, see if I can find 5 titles I want, if not, find what titles I want, then hide them in the PC game section (or whatever little used section is closest to customer service). Go out to my car, pick up the number of DVDs I need, walk in, grab the stack of blu-rays from the PC section and do it all on one transaction.

Assuming you didn't already do this, I suggest not taking the DVDs to Customer Service until you find any Blu-rays you want, then take everything to CS and get the Blu-rays while trading in the DVDs, all in a single transaction.

IDK what you're talking about!?! If you ever browse Amazon and look at the prices some of these past releases go for, it's worth every penny. There isn't one that hasn't doubled in selling price. There is even one I think for around $80..I've made it a point to start getting all these I can, I'm up to 5 of the films w/ figures.

Damn, went to BB today and traded in a movie. Was going to get Dredd 3D and it was sold out. Checked online and see that it's sold out at every BB in my area : /

If it doesn't magically come back in stock by Saturday, guess I'll use the coupon on Seven Psychopaths.

Sounds like Dredd and Dark Knight Rises are going to be two choices.

I didn't find it but I purchased Hangover and Green Lantern since they were both still priced $10. I wanted Goodfellas but that has been raised to $19.99. Don't need that steel for that price. There's one last store I could go to and search for The Book of Eli.

Hotel Transylvania $12.99

To get the manufactures coupon for Hotel Transylvania I just walked into the Applebee's in front of my local Best Buy and asked for a kids menu and they gave it to me without buying anything.

I picked up Rocky: The Undisputed Collection for $14.07 after tax thanks to the $5 U&S coupon and $5 RZ certificate I received in the mail for being a Silver member. It's a good thing, too, since that certificate would have expired on Saturday and I was scrambling to find something on which to use it.
