It's too bad it's getting a sequel, but then again, what isn't?

Didn't even like the first one.

If all you saw was the theatrical release with Ford's voiceovers and the stupid, drive off into the sunset happy ending, then I don't blame you.  Scott's director's cut is much, much better.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain...now, imagine that in 3D with just a SHIATLOAD of lens flare!

This talk of a sequl doesn't mean anything. It's just designed to ellicit an emotional response

So if Harrison Ford is going to be in it then that means he isn't a Nexus?

What's the difference between the director's cut and final cut?

The plot: A new group of androids lands on earth. Deckard, now an old man, has an intense hatred of all things android since his unfortunate castration when Rachael's vagina abruptly malfunctioned at the end of her shelf life during coitus. However one of the new androids look exactly like Rachael, stirring up old feelings in a lonely old man. Will he kill them all or will love save Rachael II?

A subplot twist to cater to the politically correct crowd: this time there are male homosexual androids and black androids. Guess who dies first?

I never thought it needed a sequel. They pretty much covered it. Wonder if they'll have Olmos as old, fat, now Captain Gaff.

"Blade Runner" has no need of a sequel.


I was more interested to see that "The Martian" was being adapted for the screen.
I really hope they don't fark it up.
 
2014-08-27 03:56:49 PM  
Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years-despite the accident.

What accident?

There is more right with that single line than the whole movie that they are writing.

The story is over, leave it alone.

Considering Ford's age by now, this one should be called Blade Walker.

Bith Set Me Up: What's the difference between the director's cut and final cut?


Well, first, I was referring to the "Final Cut" Scott did in 2007.  There was a director's cut in the 90's as well.

Lots of subtle things.  For example, there's no Harrison Ford voice over. And it makes the movie just weirdly different, in pacing and such.  That alone really makes it a better movie.  One small changed I liked is that they got rid of the continuity error about how many replicants were on the planet. Also, Zhora's death sequence was re-filmed and the stuntwoman in the bad wig is gone.

The end is different. They aren't shown driving off into the sunset with the implication that Rachel was a test model that would live a long life.  You just don't know if she is or isn't -- or whether he is or isn't.

Deckard has a dream about a unicorn, and you are given the impression that it's prophetic. So it makes the little origami unicorn that Gaff made and set out at his apartment even more chilling/weird.  Is Deckard that unicorn?  And did Gaff know that he had a dream about one?  If so, how?  And what's the significance?  The implication is that Gaff can see Deckard's thoughts, making them false/implanted, but is that the case?

I thought all three of the K.W. Jeter continuation novels were fantastic.

wee: Bith Set Me Up: What's the difference between the director's cut and final cut?

Well, first, I was referring to the "Final Cut" Scott did in 2007.  There was a director's cut in the 90's as well.

Lots of subtle things.  ...


Here's the list according to IMDB:

The more noticeable differences between The Director's Cut and The Final Cut include:
The overall film has been brightened considerably, revealing previously hidden details in many shots. Additionally, the digital enhancement reveals many heretofore obscured details, such as dirty dishes in Deckard's apartment and a freeway high above Pris as she approaches the Bradbury.

The opening credits have been completely redone, although in the exact same font as in the original film. The noticeable shimmer effect from the theatrical cut and the Director's Cut has been removed.

In the opening shot, the flames shooting up have been re-animated to look more synchronized with the associated light play on the smokestacks.

In the shots of the staring eye, you can briefly see the pupil react to the setting of 2019 L.A.

A couple of shots were trimmed (such as Deckard's intro reading the newspaper).

Additional smoke was added behind the cook when Gaff and a police officer are talking to Deckard while he is eating at the White Dragon.

All spinner wires have been removed and matte lines erased.

Bryant's line "I've got four skin jobs walking the streets" has been improved so it's not obviously an inserted recording.

Bryant says that "2" replicants were fried in the electrical field (as opposed to the theatrical release and Director's Cut, where he says only 1 was killed).

Bryant describes Leon's job during the incept tapes scene.

New Cityspeak and other chatter comes over on the police scanner in Gaff's spinner rides both to the police station and the Tyrell building.

The original shot of Roy in the VidPhone booth that had been recycled from the later confrontation with Tyrell has been digitally altered so that it truly does look like Roy was in the booth. The thumb on his shoulder has also been digitally removed from the shot.

The hotel manager mutters "Kowalski" as he opens the door to Leon's room for Deckard and Gaff.

The new Unicorn footage is longer and shows Deckard to be awake during the sequence. This is how Ridley Scott and editor Terry Rawlings originally conceived of the scene. Deckard is shown staring into space, and there is a cut to the unicorn. The film then cuts back to Deckard and again cuts back to the unicorn, before returning to Deckard once more. The shot of the unicorn which appeared in the Director's Cut has also been recolored, and the sound mix has been completely redone.

The blue grid lines on the Esper machine have been reanimated, to make them look less smooth.

When Deckard finds Zhora lying down in the back room on the photo, the image is now that of Joanna Cassidy; previously, it was clearly someone else.

New footage of the LA streets before Animoid Row and Taffy Lewis's club, including the hockey-masked geisha dancers.

The serial number on the snake scale now matches the Animoid Row lady's dialog.

There is a shot of Deckard asking for directions to Taffy Lewis' from a uniformed policeman.

The lip flap between Deckard and Abdul Ben Hassan has been digitally corrected using Harrison Ford's son, Ben, as a stand-in for his mouth movements.

In Zhora's death scene, you can tell it is her the entire time; previously it was obvious that her stunt double, Lee Pulford, was in the shot. Joanna Cassidy's head was digitally superimposed over Pulford's.

Deckard's cut after retiring Zhora was digitally removed (it wasn't supposed to be there until after the fight with Leon).

The marquee inconsistencies on the Million Dollar Theatre have been corrected.

During Roy's confrontation with Tyrell, he says, "I want more life, father", as opposed to "I want more life, farker".

When Roy kills Tyrell, the footage is the same as that found in the International Cut, with the additional violence. Additionally, when Roy turns to Sebastian, he says "I'm sorry, Sebastian. Come. Come", as he walks towards him.

When Pris attacks Deckard, she reaches down and grabs him by the nostrils

When Deckard shoots Pris, he shoots 3 times instead of 2.

The two shadows seen on the wall during the chase sequence have been removed.

When Roy pushes the nail through his hand, there is a shot of the nail coming through the skin on the other side.

When Roy releases the dove, it now flies up into a background that matches 2019 L.A.

The music which plays over the end credits is a newly composed piece by Vangelis; a different version of the 'End Credits' theme as heard in all other cuts.

In the closing credits, David L. Snyder is now listed as 'David L. Snyder', instead of 'David Snyder'. Additionally, Ben Astar is now credited for playing the role of Abdul Ben Hassan (the snake salesman).

I'm not a big fan of the original, either, but i respect it..   Its clear that it has been very influential with how futurescapes are depicted in films.
