It says a lot about the current state of filmmaking when a low-budget fan film more accurately reflects its source material than a big budget Hollywood movie.
Judge Minty (which I was reminded of today by Steve Blease of Bleaseworld) is the fan film in question, and is getting a limited, not-for-profit, festival release this month.
Check out this cool, work-in-progress trailer and it's spot-on representation of Mega-City One then remind yourself of the efforts by the team behind the blink-and-you'll-miss-it cinematic release, Dredd, from earlier this year.
I know this is a dead horse I've flogged before, but the recent bland trailer for World War Z has really got my hackles up about filmmakers not respecting their source material.
And, yes, I know this is not a nothing new (Robert E Howard fans have long had to endure Hollywood's desire to "improve" Howard's works), but, really, isn't it about time that someone started to take notice?
