Comic Book Review – Judge Dredd Classics: The Dark Judges #4

30 April 2015 10:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Andrew Newton reviews Judge Dredd Classics: The Dark Judges #4…

Classics tales of Judge Death—and his brothers Fear, Fire, and Mortis—come to life in this remastered and colourised series!

Out of all the enemies Judge Dredd has, Judge Death and his comrades are the most fearsome and the most troublesome to the citizens of Mega City One.  In this current series, Judges Death, Fear, Fire and Mortice have come through to the city after tricking Judge Anderson.

In this issue, Judge Anderson returns from Death World to Mega City 1 to find chaos as Dredd and the other judges try to track down the Dark Judges.

I remember this story when it first came out and it’s just as good and enthralling read now as it was then.  It is undeniably a high quality story written by those who know Dredd and his universe the best, Alan Grant and John Wagner. »

Exclusive Interview: Alex Garland Talks Ex Machina

26 April 2015 5:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The science-fiction genre can be a hard one to embrace. As screenwriter and director Alex Garland can teach us, it is more important for the characters and ideas to resonate with the audience than the groundbreaking visual effects. Garland wrote a variety of acclaimed sci-fi films, including the zombie thriller 28 Days Later, the Kazuo Ishiguro adaptation Never Let Me Go and recent cult favorite Dredd. In all of those titles, plus his newest film – the brainy sci-fi thriller, Ex Machina – the characters trump the concept.

Ex Machina has been one of the year’s biggest art-house successes, after two weeks in limited release. It tells the story of Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a tech programmer who gets the chance to test out the new work of reclusive genius and company figurehead Nathan (Oscar Isaac). That new creation is a female A.I. named Ava (Alicia Vikander), which soon proves to be more than it seems. »

Interview with Alex Garland, writer/director of Ex Machina

24 April 2015 8:57 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Alex Garland’s résumé reads like a laundry list of recent sci-fi and horror cult hits, with screenplay credits including 28 Days Later (2002), Sunshine (2007), and Dredd (2012). His latest, Ex Machina, may stand to follow that same path of cult adoration – although hopefully for Garland, its box office will follow more in the footsteps of 28 Days Later than those of Dredd. The sparse, character-driven sci-fi film follows Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), an office drone at a major tech company who wins the opportunity to spend a week at the secluded home of his employer, Nathan (Oscar Isaac). Caleb discovers Nathan has recruited him to test the behavior of an android, Ava (Alicia Vikander), that Nathan has developed. As Nathan begins to display a more megalomaniacal side and Ava proves even more emotionally developed than expected, Caleb’s big week with the boss starts to slide unsettlingly south.

New Ex MacHina Trailer Is Creepy, Sexy And Serves As A Warning!

22 April 2015 10:31 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test – charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated, seductive––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined. Ex Machina marks the directorial debut of Alex Garland, the screenwriter behind 28 Days Later, Sunshine and a 2012 Cbm favorite Dredd (the reboot, Not the Stallone flick). The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac who will appear in Star Wars: The Force Awakens  this December. The clip ends with the »

Final Trailer for 'Ex Machina' Cautions Against Artificial Intelligence

22 April 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The sci-fi thriller Ex Machina has been in limited release for a couple weeks now, but this weekend the film featuring future Star Wars actors Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac expands nationwide to theaters everywhere. And with that comes one final trailer to convince audiences to see this worthwhile flick. There's not much new footage, but the trailer uses quotes from respected scientific experts such as Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about how much of a gamechanger true artificial intelligence would be, though not necessarily for the better. It's something that's on the verge of not being science fiction. Watch! Here's the final trailer for Alex Garland's Ex Machina from A24: You can still watch the previous second trailer for Ex Machina right here. Ex Machina is written and directed by Alex Garland (writer of Dredd, Sunshine, 28 Days Later). Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a 24 year old coder at the world’s largest internet company, »

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

20 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

Review: Ex Machina

20 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Screenwriter Alex Garland is responsible for a number of highly regarded science-fiction screenplays including 28 Days Later, Never Let Me Go and Dredd. With Ex Machina, which opened Friday, Garland for the first time adds directing on top of his writing credits. Ex Machina has taken the film festival circuit by storm and received accolades as a Drafthouse Recommends title. However, the more I think about it, the more I feel this movie is overrated.

Ex Machina is a richly beautiful, smart, thought-provoking work of science fiction that unfortunately suffers from a viciously sexist underlying theme. Oscar Isaac plays Nathan, a charismatic cyber genius who at the age of 13, wrote the software that would eventually become Google. He invites Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), an employee chosen by lottery, to spend a week at his remote estate for a kind of sick Willy Wonka-esque robot nightmare tour.

10 Overlooked Positives of Sylvester Stallone’s Judge Dredd

20 April 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Hollywood Pictures

While the ever-faithful continue to pray to Grud for a sequel to Karl Urban’s Dredd 3D (looking increasingly doubtful with every word from the film’s creators and stars), this infamous mid-nineties misfire was afforded no such passionate campaign for its continued survival into franchisedom. Regarded in some circles as up there with Batman & Robin, Catwoman and Elektra as one of the worst comic book adaptations ever made, there’s no denying that Judge Dredd failed rather resoundingly to do justice (no pun intended, your honour) to its title character.

To be fair to its detractors, Stallone’s Joe Dredd took his helmet off after about ten minutes, Rob Schneider played the ‘comic’ ‘relief’, key characters were either utterly wasted or bastardised, and the film ended with an inexcusable kiss between Dredd and Hershey. As an adaptation of the often seminal 2000Ad source material, Judge Dredd, frankly, »

Video Interview: Alex Garland Chats Sci-Fi, Filmmaking + 'Ex Machina'

16 April 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Go into a shoot with a bad script, and you're in big trouble." Playing in theaters now is the new sci-fi film Ex Machina, directed by screenwriter turned filmmaker Alex Garland. Garland is making his directorial debut with this film after writing the scripts for The Beach, 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go and Dredd. A few years back I met up with him for an interview about Dredd, and we talked a lot about science fiction, and how the genre pushes itself forward. I met up with Alex Garland again, this time while he was in New York City to promote Ex Machina, and we again chatted about sci-fi and how much he loves the genre. As always, it was fun to sit down and talk with Alex about filmmaking and much more. Fire it up! "Really interesting areas are beginning to exist that only a handful of »

Interview: Director Alex Garland Seeks Humanity in ‘Ex Machina’

16 April 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Who are we anyway, when as inventors of artificial intelligence, we can create a new wave of thought process? That is what writer – and now director – Alex Garland (“28 Days Later…,” “Sunshine”) has been grappling with his entire career. His directorial debut is the stunning and prescient “Ex Machina.”

The film relates a story of Artificial Intelligence and robot/androids, supposedly invented by a Bill Gates type of world conqueror, portrayed by Oscar Isaac. When he brings a low level worker to interact with his new robots – designed to look like beautiful young women – the implications of the brave new world become apparent. The film works on many interesting levels, including the very question of what being alive means.

Comic Book Review – Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection – The Heavy Mob

15 April 2015 6:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection – The Heavy Mob…

The Heavy Mob features the stories Holocaust 12, Brit-Cit Brute, Wynter and the Judge Dredd tales Father Earth, Debris and Warzone, featuring the work of John Wagner, Robbie Morrison, John Smith, Jim Murray, Kev Walker, Ron Smith, Michael Carroll, Pj Holden, Nick Percival, and more.

This volume concentrates on the heavily armoured divisions within the Justice Department, sent into the most extreme of troublespots. Holocaust 12 and Brit-Cit Brute have never been reprinted since their original publication in the early 1990s, so this will be the first time they will be getting an airing in twenty years!

I feel Heavy Mob is now unfortunately the first real stumble in the Judge Dredd: Mega Collection; it begins well but proceeds to grasp randomly at stories that previously would have been stapled to the closing chapters of the other Mega Collections.

Ex Machina Review SXSW 2015

11 April 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Alex Garland is no stranger to the big screen nor big ideas. Having penned some of director Danny Boyle's lauded efforts ( 28 Days Later, Sunshine) as well as one of my personal favorite films of the past few years (2012's superb Dredd), Garland has finally decided to step behind the camera for his directorial debut,  Ex Machina, a minimalist Sci-Fi excursion down the well of creator vs creation and, in the end, which one is truly god.

The film opens on Caleb (Domhnall Gleason), a coder for an internet search engine known as Blue Book, as he has finds himself the winner of an in-house contest. The prize: a week spent with Blue Book's founder and billionaire CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Caleb is quickly whisked away by helicopter to Bateman's hidden home in the wilderness and upon arrival discovers that there's much more to his being there than merely bro-time with the big boss. »

Review: Ex Machina

10 April 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Acclaimed screenwriter Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine, Dredd) moves into the director’s seat for the first time with Ex Machina, a stunning and thought-provoking exploration of what differentiates humanity from the machines it produces and the dangers of bearing such magnanimous responsibilities once artificial life has been created and must be contended with. A harrowing and intimate film that poses a lot of intelligent questions, Ex Machina demonstrates that Garland’s skills as a filmmaker are just as compelling as his screenwriting prowess.

Ex Machina follows Caleb (Domnhall Gleeson), an entry-level programmer for a popular search engine company who wins a contest at work one day, giving him the chance to spend a week shadowing the organization’s reclusive CEO named Nathan (Oscar Isaac) who works solely from his isolated compound situated in the middle of nowhere. Once he arrives, Caleb learns Nathan’s real reason for bringing him »
