Are you excited or upset about these remakes? I, for one, am not sure about them... I love the IPs, but I'm not sure if I need them being remade right now. On the one hand I love both of these movies but, on the other hand, is too soon to remake them? just wondering what other duders feel about them...

I couldn't care less about Total Recall. Excited for Judge Dredd.

I was ambivalent until I saw trailers for both films. I'm cautiously optimistic for Dredd, and am pretty sure Total Recall will be a good movie.

So all in all I'm surprised by how good they look.

I'm stoked for Judge Dredd, but I'm convinced that Total Recall can't live up to SEE YOU AT DE PAHTY, RICHTAH.

I think Dredd will be absolutely dreadful. I'm don't know what to think about Total Recall other than tri-breasted Asian beauties.

Judge Dredd Remake? I never knew, sexcited big time. Stallone Cameo?

Saw the trailer...looked terrible.

I find this 'new wave' of remakes really depressing. But thats just me.

It looks nothing like a Dredd comic at all. At least the Stallone movie looked the part and some of the characters were lifted straight from the comic in their entirety. I'm still waiting on a proper ABC Warriors movie.

Dredd looks pretty awesome, and I have heard nothing but positive buzz so far. I think Len Wiseman knows how to make a slick action movie so I support Total Recall as well (particularly since the movie is apparently based directly on the original short story and is not a direct remake of the film).

I bet both of these movies will be completely average. They look like the type of movies that I might stop to watch while channel surfing on a Saturday.

Judge Dredd looks like a cheap movie, like a high quality fan made short-film you'd see on YouTube, a spoof, or a live action video game trailer. Total Recall is somewhat better in quality from a visual stand-point, but it doesn't look all that interesting in certain aspects. The thing I think - to me at least - that's apparent, is that these actors seem like weird choices for the leads. I guess all I think is that they don't necessarily look good, but I'm willing to see them. That's my thoughts devoid of opinions on the past films (or comic and short story).

I haven't read the comics of Judge Dredd, but I have looked at Google images and read some of its wiki, and I thought that was all very cool. I don't really think the 1995 movie was great, but Stallone did kind of fit Dredd and the theme song was appropriate. Total Recall with Arnold is a great film, I've seen it many, many times now, but it's now not one I can get through entirely since I've seen it so much, and I've never read We Can Remember It for You Wholesale. So, while I have my eyes on them (Total Recall more so) I can't say I'm that excited for them.

I haven't been impressed with much out of hollywood in a while. Most of the shit I watch nowadays has subtitles.

I liked Total Recall growing up, I'll throw it a bone for nostalgia sake.

I don't like that they are remaking Total Recall. As a kid of the 80's, I think it's shitty to fuck with Arnold's legacy. It's almost as bad as the True Grit remake from those damn hippies.

The Dredd remake looks ok, and I'm pretty sure people consider the Sly movie a flop. Though I disagree. The kid in me wants them to fail, the action fan inside me (: O) wants a good fight.

Anyhoo I just saw the trailer for the Total Recall remake and thought it looked awful, I didn't even know there was a Judge Dredd remake but that movie wasn't even that good originally so meh.

Judge Dredd could be awesome, it seems to have the same premise as The Raid and that movie was amazing.

Total Recall, even though it doesn't have Arnold, i really hope it does well i loved the first movie and i like Colin Ferrel.

The new Judge Dredd looks much better than the crappy Stallone movie.

I'm really excited for Dredd, it looks gloriously violent and I have a soft spot for Karl Urban. Won't be seeing Total Recall as my boyfriend is a strict Arnie fan and the original is one of his favourite films of all time, so I doubt he'll take part in the blasphemy. It looks alright, but nothing special. The original is just cheesy and fantastic in equal measure.

I like Judge Dredd to hear Sly Stallone talk all funny, but it is pretty awful. Total Recall will not benefit from a remake. Judge Dredd may???

Though this won't really change anything if they do or don't, but I hope they somehow put Anthrax's "I Am the Law" in Dredd somewhere.

Think we should reserve... judgement. But honestly I heard so many times that the Stallone Dredd didn't live up to the comic, and the trailer makes it look pretty cool. Also, this is not really a remake, but a reboot, since as I said, they are going for something else.

Total Recall however also has a great trailer, but who knows if the special effects will get in the way, looks like a lot of green screen. Colin Farrell is not really a star, he hasn't made a hit, anytime I think. BUt who knows, it might be a good movie, as much as I love the original. There is a book, but I would call this more of a remake than Dredd because of them including things from the original movie.

But these movies are more susceptible to remakes and reboots because people had issues with the source material not being followed closely and not everyone enjoyed the movie equally. Now one movie we should be worried about is RoboCop. How the fuck can anyone make a better one of those?

I think both will be worth one watch, and at least Total Recall looks like it will have a bunch of cool flashy future technology. And who knows? Maybe both will surpass their predecessors...

No, I think he's the lead in both of them.  I hear he has a risque love scene with Kate Beckinsale.

I saw the trailer for Dredd and it looked damn ridiculous. But apparently it's been getting some rather good reviews so I'm not sure. Not a fan of Len Wiseman so I'll probably skip Total Recall.

Dredd is going to be amazing, I think. People who have already seen it, (I s'pose some early critics) have said that there were blown away, and it rivaled The Raid in some spots. Oh, and Karl Urban never takes off the helmet. Also, it's ridiculously fucking violent. I'm so goddamn excited for it.

I don't really care. I don't think either movie looks good but I just don't have to see them. Nothing to get angry about.

Also helps that I didn't like the last Dredd movie at all. Total Recall I love though.
