Our next How Did This Get Made? choice has everything we love in a movie: Bad sci-fi, even worse action, and the stellar acting combo of Sylvester Stallone and Rob Schneider. It's the kind of movie that is on Youtube and nobody is bothering to take it off. Watch it, and join us next week!

This is one I totally forgot about. I can't wait to hear what you guys have to say about this cheesy turd. When I read the description I thought maybe it was Demolition Man which, bear in mind, is also bat-shit insane.

I don't know if I should a) be happy that they used my suggestion of "Judge Dredd", or b ) apologize to you all.

If you want to do a movie to acknowledge your Aussie fans, look no further

I'm surprised it's taken this long to get to Sylvester Stallone. They're just scratching the surface (Rhinestone, Over the Top, Oscar, Stop or My Mom Will Shoot).

I'll admit that I have both Judge Dredd and Demolition Man in my DVD collection since they are guilty pleasures of mine. I loved the Dredd comics and this movie does aggravate me for how loyal it is to the books in some points while unloyal for the rest of the movie, especially with Dredd's helmet. Can't wait to hear how this gets dissected next week.

This movie looks cool!

Too bad the remake is a ripoff of The Raid: Redemption.

The remake was flimed too late to be a rip-off of The Raid. The trailer was cut to look like a rip-off of The Raid to distract you from the fact that it is a rip-off of the Nolan Batman franchise.

Dredd and Demolition man make a nicely fucked-up doulbe feature.

Saw this in Mexico City when it came out. Movies were only 1-2 USD and I saw 3 - 4 a week and never walked out of anything. After this one was over and I was trying to digest what the crap it was "really" about, I came across the fasting protest of a uniformed police officer. He had gone up into a tree to hang himself and others were trying to get him down. If I remember correctly, he was protesting police corruption and having to come up with a minimum amount of bribes to kick upstairs at the precinct...Unfortunately, I don't have my journal with me detailing the post-modern rupture between the Dredd movie and the cold hard reality...fueled by Mexican sativa, no doubt...Looking forward to watching it again actually.

I love it when a movie's cast combines award-winning or otherwise excellent actors like Diane Lane, Max Von Sydow, and Jürgen Prochnow with motherflippin' Rob Schneider... in a Sylvester Stallone movie. A sure sign of trash if there ever was one.

Also, since this movie opens with images of the physical comic book, I expect it will be a respectable, faithful adaptation of the source material, right guys? On the same level as, say, David Lean's 1946 version of 'Great Expectations.' ...right?

The central premise is that the judicial system has been replaced by one-man jury/judge/executioner enforcers... yet the plot kicks off with Sly being arrested and given a trial. Arrrg

Based on some preliminary CTRL + F'ing of the script....If you do a shot everytime they say "law", you will go through 1.5 fifths of liquor.

Hopefully, the producers of the new Dredd will correct the injustice of the original film by remembering to include the Anthrax classic "I Am The Law" somehow. Those guys were the masters of adapting comics and Stephen King novels into song. Want to read "The Stand", but you think 1000 pages is too much? Give "Among the Living" a spin! You don't want to read "Misery", and your eyeballs start bleeding if you look at Kathy Bates for too long? Anthrax thought of that too! It's too bad that none of the band members got into acting, or they could have been like the Will Smith of metal. Now THERE was a guy that could sum up a film with three minutes and a stolen hook!
