The second CommentaryCast is the criminally under-seen action-flick, Dredd. Despite decent reviews and a focused story, the film failed to make much of a mark on the box office and as such, the much-promised sequel is all but dead now. Fans have been holding out hope, but at this point deeming it “unlikely” seems schockingly optimistic. Despite failing monetarily, the movie succeeds is spades with it’s impressive visuals, effective violence, excellent performances and reverence to its source material. Brian and I are completely unable to hide our admiration for everyone involved in this film. So give this a listen…and then go buy the Dredd Blu-Ray.

This is the first of Comic Book Media’s CommentaryCasts. I’ve been trying to figure out a better way to post the actual casts, rather than just on a page with a link at the top of the screen. I’ve found that even friends and frequent users of the site have missed updates on them, so I’m hoping an actual blog update will help to rectify this problem. Thus, I’ll be keeping the original CommentaryCast page, but I’ll also be giving each a place in the blog feed. I’m hoping this will extend the reach a bit. So as not to flood the page with all of the CC’s at once, I’ll post one a week until I’m caught up. After that, I’ll post a brand new edition that Baer and I recorded a few weeks ago (it’s Blade. Are you ready to roll with this?). Also, we’re looking at getting them placed on iTunes and getting some clips posted on YouTube. I’ll be sure to update you all when that happens. So, without further ado…that doesn’t look right…(adieu?)…without further bullcrap, here’s Constantine. If you haven’t checked it out yet, give it a listen. And, as always, sorry for all of the bad words.

**This edition of The unadapted was written by Brian Baer, frequent collaborator and author of the upcoming Bad Publicity from Portfolio Press. Be sure to check it out. But first, read his thoughts on why Marvel’s Batman should be brought to life.**

The problem with Moon Knight has never been that he was unknown. The character has been the star of several comics series, many with high-profile creators and respectable lifespans. He’s even been ranked as one of the greatest comics characters by Wizard and IGN.

The problem with Moon Knight is that most people know him, but only as a Batman rip-off.
