Winners don't do puppet drugs

Puppet recreation of the drug den shootout from the brilliant Dredd (2012). NparticularlySFW owing to voluminous slow-mo blood jets and flagrant use of Paulstretch. Recreated shootout starts at 2.05.

Remember kids, Metafilter's own Artw has written/is still writing the official sequel to Dredd in the Megazine.

Thinking about it now, a grand theory of how Karl Urban's character from Almost Human becomes Judge Dredd in Dredd almost writes itself (and how Mega-City One was formed from the ashes of New L.A.).

Art kills me off in the sequel, apparently. At least, I think it's from the sequel. From my Twitter feed, Nov. 20:

"A few minutes ago .@pauljholden tweeted a screenie of a two-page spread from one of Art’s joints. It’s pretty cool. pic.twitter.com/DW9vviCpcE"

"wanted a closer look. Multi-temporal action illos have old roots - the Bayeux tapestry, e.g. But what’s this? ENHANCE pic.twitter.com/Z3z7UJW1bH"

"I AM A JUDGE.

Was.

Why does the knife guy look like me? Are we clones?

Thanks Art! ACTUAL LOL.

Art later told me that I was duly honored with a plaque in the Hall of Justice.

Judge Dredd is not "just" a cop.
He is... The Law.

The important thing is that we agree that the movie is pronounced duh-reh-duh-duh.

Questionable culturally based assumption, creep, you've just earned yourself a deconstruction.

Would you believe I'd never made that leap even though I've been calling it duh-reh-duh-duh since it came out? Probably, because of how obviously I am an idiot.

Almost Human is a real shame. I really wanted to like it, because I think Karl Urban is just great (and, despite my initial reservations about his head vs helmet proportions in Dredd, he totally owned that shit), but the first three episodes lead me to conclude that it is actually almost as terrible as SHIELD.
