Bloody ‘Dredd’ Shootout’ Recreated With Puppets (Video)
  |  @   |  

If you’ve not yet seen the 2012 movie take on the Judge Dredd character, simply titled Dredd, you really should. Unless you’re easily put off by violence, in which case you should still totally watch it. It’s all cuddles and rainbows and sugary sweet treats, I swear.

The results, which you can watch in the video below, are both funny and still pretty awesome.

Super 8

DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by J.J. Abrams
Starring Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, Ron Eldard, Noah Emmerich, Glynn Turman
Paramount Pictures
Originally Released: June 9, 2011

Cheers to the wonder that is J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg, for it was the epic science fiction movie Super 8, evoking a potent injection of nostalgia, which came to my rescue. From the opening sequence, I began feeling the haze of depression leave my tortured brain, in a manner that was akin to the pins-and-needles sensation of circulation returning to an appendage that was numbed.
