Episode 097: "The Raid" & "Dredd"
Dredd Redemption! It's always sad when Hollywood rips off a great indie film - unless it turns out as well as the spectacular Karl Urban sci-fi thriller Dredd ripping off the equally amazing Indonesian action masterpiece The Raid: Redemption! Hollywood has always had an originality problem: they'd always rather steal or repackage a successful foreign film than come up with something new - - and the list of these junky remakes is a depressingly long one, from the slick genius of Luc Besson's La Femme Nikita being turned into the tapioca Point of No Return, Or Spike Lee's ill-advised reimagining of Park Chan-wook's legendary Oldboy. But tonight's double feature suffers no such generational loss - Join us as MG takes on the epic Indonesian actioner The Raid, and its brilliant sci-fi rehash: Karl Urban's Dredd! Separated at birth: The Raid & Dredd! Drink. Talk. Drink
