Blade Runner 2049
I’d be more optimistic, if Ridley Scott hadn’t brought us “Prometheus”.
Denis Villeneuve at the helm. Ridley Scott can stay well away after Prometheus.
Ridley was making stinkers long before Prometheus. Alien, Blade Runner and (maybe) Gladiator aside, his output has been very average.Posted 1 year ago
Yeah, cos Thelma and Louise, black rain, black hawk down, legand, the duelists are all shit
I didn’t really think much of Thelma and Louise. Black Rain was ok, I watched it again recently and it’s pretty standard cop thriller fare with nice visuals. Black Hawk Down is a steaming pile of shit, Legend is laughably bad albeit novel for seeing Tom Cruise dressed like a fairy and The Duellists is visually lovely but otherwise pretty boring.
Even if I concede that the five films you listed are brilliant, along with the three I mentioned that’s eight films out of twenty three.Posted 1 year agoPrinceJohnMember
Interesting one… certainly a film that needs no sequel – will be interesting if it’s another standalone movie or if they’re trying to make a franchise & if it’s similar to The Force Awakens in that it’s essentially just a re-tread of the first movie… So Many Questions!!Posted 1 year agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
If Deckard’s a robot why does he look old?
In the book most people couldn’t afford pets so they bought replicant pets. real pets were a status symbol. To create the illusion of “realness”, quality replicant pets were built with failsafe circuits circuits so that, if they failed, they exhibited sick animal symptoms. An extension of that would be that if a humanoid replicant was built to mimic all human characteristics, then aging would be one of them. Possibly with the ability to regenerate to a younger form on a change of owner.
Or if, like Rachel, he wasn’t supposed to know then he’d have to age.
To **** with nerds.
well that seems to have workedPosted 1 year ago
