Staircases have always played a vital role in cinema; any time our hero or villain needs to ascend or descend a level, the humble stair is there to allow it to happen. Ripe for injecting symbolism into a scene or used metaphorically to show our protagonists character development, the stairs are also a place where fights, chases and sometimes comedy can occur. So join us and go stair-crazy with this weeks Top 5 Set On A Staircase.
The legendary 2000 A.D. is a British sci-fi comic which has been around since the 1970's and has at one time or another received contributions from some of our most well-known writers and artists, including Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Grant Morrison and Garth Ennis. Undoubtedly the most famous of all its characters is Judge Dredd, a law enforcement officer in the dystopian future city Mega-City One. Sylvester Stallone has already played the character on the big screen but the movie struggled to find an audience as it was stripped essentially of everything that made the character and world he inhabits interesting. Alex Garland and Pete Travis rebooted the persona with Karl Urban starring as the titular Judge in 2012's DREDD. But would this version of the role resonate with the Dads?
Obvious humour, catchphrases, pratfalls, silliness and the most ridiculous cranial and facial hair you are ever likely to see combine to give us Chucklevision, a British kids tv comedy starring Barry and Paul Chuckle (the Chuckle Brothers). In 'Trouble In Store' the half-witted mullet-sporters are left in charge of a supermarket and before you can say 'Operation Yewtree' our childish simpletons are neck deep in banana skins, floor polish and wee-jimmy Krankie's orifices. Chuckle? Did I fuck.
