7/21/2017
More
After four weeks off, Geek and The Cop is back to bust baddies with DREDD. Karl Urban stars as the titular character who is stuck at the Peachtrees Apartments which contain neither peaches or trees, but it does have a lot of the drug slomo and a mean Ma-Ma who's slinging to anyone who's buyin'. And Dredd? Yeah, he ain't buyin'. So report for duty and press play. WARNING: We also talk about Stallone's DREDD, but to make up for that we also talk JOHN WICK, THE RAID, and GI JOE (?). Geek and...
