Dredd 3-D

(R) ★★☆☆☆

In the futuristic, vermin-infested Mega City, the building known as Peach Tree is run by a gangland ruler played by Lena Headey, who controls the flow of the latest drug, Slo-Mo. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) and his psychic protege (Olivia Thirlby) square off against the bad people. The violence is ever-present and gratuitous, the film playing out like a video game complete with levels. Not a strong effort, but the gamers will love it.

Billionaire’s Blues

By Michael Phillips, Tribune Media Services

It’s an unseemly request by a movie, to ask us to root for the lying, scrambling but extremely well-coiffed hedge fund billionaire weasel played by Richard Gere in the new film Arbitrage. But there it is. The movie does ask, and to varying degrees, we comply. The website Investopedia defines “arbitrage” this way: “The simultaneous purchase and sale of an asset in order to profit from a difference in the price. It is a trade that profits by exploiting price differences of identical or similar financial instruments, on different markets or in different forms.”
