Big News and I need to pinch myself to see if I'm not dreaming been wishing for this since 1984.deffo needs John and Alan's humour -plenty of room for that in a TV series Dredd doesn't even need to be the major character -but the presence of the law -that's how to approach his world -could be onto a winner here if they handle it right ... here's a few stories that may be explored in series -but my first thought when I saw title of show  Mega City One was Marlon Shakesphere aka Chopper aka The Midnight Surfer (that needs to be live action without a doubt) A few live Action versions of Old Stoney face .. the 95 movie was a big let down -Sly had to play Hollywood game which is not what JD is about at all -but it did feature Hammerstein and Ian Dury and the Cure on the soundtrack -but The Movie just hit all the wrong beats which is a drokkin shame... the real Rico's is as ugly as sin having spent time on Saturn's Moon Titan rather than Aspen (jeez how did that happen?)Rico's meant to be identical to Joe -sylvester and Armand aint. cool to know Ian was a fan . From 90's PS1 game but I actually liked this more than the 90's movie he looks like Joe if drawn by John Burns or Cliff Robinson and he's very Clint which is the right Dredd vibe although lately as Joe's kinda old he reminds me of John Wayne (but in a good way) cool to see Chief Judge Griffin in this too- the closest so far to getting the uniform right. By today's standards not the greatest game-but it was fun to play and generous with all the different modes as well the main story- I thought voices and music were great -not sure why Chief Judge Hershey and Anderson were going around all unzipped like that(Judges don't do that) Dredd would of put them in a nympho cube 30 years lol- but I wish everyday for a new Dredd game Red Dead/Mass Effect/Fallout /GTA style -Rogue Trooper which followed was the business kept true to his story-but no major 2000ad games since.. now Rebellion have rights to Fleetway characters the worlds there oyster would love to see a Battle compilation game for example (third person mind nobody does that in these historical games apart from Rockstar & Assassins Creed,) One Eye Jack ,Rat Pack, Johnny Red Leopard from Lime Street Roy of the Rovers ,The Sarge etc would make such awesome games )Karl & Olivia should reprise these roles .. they got it right .   Looking forward to Search and Destroy The Strontium Dog fan film (not long now) -so to get in the mood here's Judge Minty again .. but it's so  Boss gotta see it again.Greg Staples is an excellent Dredd & Artist . I dunno do they need a sequel it's worth seeing as Ridley's an old Mucker with my old art teacher Brian Love who taught Ian Dury too , so glad it's him .. maybe film needs addressing seeing as we live in Blade Runner times .
