Dredd 3D

“Dredd 3D” is the story of a heavily armed, stoic police officer, set in a dystopian future where officers of the law are referred to as “Judges” due to their authority to immediately pass sentence on criminals – including death sentences.

A relentless, remorseless cleansing effort ensues.

“Dredd 3D” is dark, gritty, violent, bleak, brutal and deadly serious. Fun for the whole family, and good for kids of all ages!

Now Showing on Cable: “Priest”

Making its premium cable channel debut this weekend on Starz was 2011’s “Priest”, starring Paul Bettany, Maggie Q and Karl Urban.

“Priest” is a movie set in the proverbial “Dystopian Future”, where large city states are controlled by a religious hierarchy, while outside their walls, vast wastelands are overrun with vampires. Due to vampire’s traditional weakness to religious artifacts and items, the warriors in charge of defending the cities and fighting vampires are priests.

When one of the priests hears that his frontier relatives have been slaughtered by vampires, and their daughter kidnapped, he leaves the protection of the city in order to prowl the wastes in search of the girl.

Comedy ensues.

Now showing on cable: “Red”

Making its debut on Showtime this weekend was 2010’s “RED”, starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Karl Urban and Mary-Louise Parker.

“RED” tells the story of Frank Moses (Bruce Willis), a retired CIA operative. Frank has been spending his time having flirtatious phone calls with a phone operator at the company that administers his pension. When he is suddenly targeted for elimination, he shows up at her apartment unannounced and kidnaps her… ostensibly to keep her from being eliminated due to her association with him. He also gets in contact with his old team, who are all retirees, just as he is.

Hence the title of the movie. Retired, Extremely Dangerous.
