Well, I am getting older.
And as I age, I find that some things simply don't excite me as much as when I was young.
Food. You know, you gotta eat!
Women. Well for most women not as much - but a few women still get my eye!
Politics. You know of course that the whole political theory has been corrupted, governments main job has shifted to whatever it can graciously and with pomposity GIVE to the people...
Anyways I remember when I was younger and actually went to the theater once in a while. And in 1983 I saw one of the most fantastic movies I have ever or will ever see.
At first I was in shock, in awe. I couldn't make any sense of it. In a lot of respects, I still don't. But gradually, over the years and seeing a number of versions of the original, it started to have some order to it. Personally, owning Blade Runner - The Final Cut has told me alot about the movie that makes sense. It's a two disc DVD with tons and tons of interviews, alternate endings, etc.
I am sure you have all seen it. A future where dystopia has emerged as the driving force. Cops maintain (well, in their private realms at least) order somewhat.
It STILL shocks me today!
Ridley Scott was a young director and chose (for most of us) almost unheard of people to play the parts, which they did superbly. He was in the middle of a few projects at the time, soon to do Aliens, and it almost seemed like a bit of an effort to fill a void, both in his time and in the movie genre then.
Now, after 30+ years of having Blade Runner under my belt and in my house and in my yard and in my bed I am very, very excited about his new movie.
Blade Runner, the Sequel will be in theaters Oct. 6th
From the look of the trailers and previews, this probably will not surpass the original... but it will be very, very close indeed!
And I am excited!
I got the Double DVD a year ago
and watched it several times...
Many times really. Love it!
12 MONKEYS has me Hamstrung now.
William Sanderson as Sebastian before he was Larry
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe.”
Rutger is why I watched.
Ladyhawke and Flesh And Blood.
I am a fan of the original, big time. One of the best movies to come out in the 80s, for sure. The trailers for this one look very promising.
Why did we need a remake?
Was something flawed in the original?
Not a remake. A sequel.
The cynical side of me has low expectations. I wouldn’t mind being proven wrong, however, and the previews seem to be careful about revealing too many details.
Remakes rarely work..
Part Two could work...could.
Should we start calling it The Greatest American Heroine?
ABC has given a put-pilot commitment to a reboot of ’80s cult hit The Greatest American Hero, our sister site Deadline is reporting. But there’s a twist: Instead of the original’s accidental superhero Ralph Hinkley, the new Hero will be an Indian-American woman named Meera who’s fond of drinking tequila and singing karaoke.
I got excited over a movie the other night... I got over it pretty quick.
Blade Runner is deep.
Would you like to meet your Maker?
Roy Batty did just that.
He met his maker Tyrell.
If you meet your Maker, what would you request?
Roy Batty told his maker Tyrell, “I want more life, f####r.”
What would you do if your request/prayer went unanswered?
In response to Roy Batty’s request, Tyrell said we made you as best as we could, so no life extention. Sorry, Batty. But enjoy what time you have left in this life.
Obviously, Batty did not take no for an answer. So Batty kissed his maker and killed him.
Thus goes the short and brutish life of an ungrateful creature: Kill your maker because he does not serve you.
I told ya, Blade Runner is deep.
Big deal. Probably full of Trump-hating leftoids.
When will they finally remake Gilligan’s Island?
Are they releasing another re-run of “Lassie”? There are NO, None, ZERO, movies worth watching any longer. “Follywood” is lost!
