Some of her current research includes "Angelology". Can you really tag "-ology" on just anything now?

OK, please someone either explain to me why Deckard is a replicant, or point me to a link or something ... 'cause I've watched that movie dozens of times and I'm just not seeing it ... if that makes me a doofus, I'm a doofus.

And please, no "well, you can infer it from ..."; give me something that is said or that happens in the movie that can't be explained as anything other than "... thus, Deckard's a replicant."

Well he has a dream about unicorns and Commander Adama makes an origami of a unicorn, indicating that he knows about Deckard's implanted memories.

To me, it's a better story if he isn't a replicant.

I was never really convinced by the arguments for him being a replicant in the movie. But, in the book there are a few that made sense to me. Like that mind-internet-thing that didn't work for him like people described. I don't remember the others.

fusillade762: What if studio meddling changes the director's original vision? They don't get a do over later?


Nope, because...and I know this is sacriledge...the film is bigger than the director.

For instance, Ridley Scott, who I totally respect as a director, wanted the Alien to bite Ripley's head off at the end of Alien, and then sit in her chair and start speaking with her voice in a message to Earth. It would have been a really really cheesy ending, and it would have disrupted the canon for a great sequel, Aliens.

If you don't buy that, consider this, Ridley Scott wanted Mia Sara to gradually transform into a cat-human and make out with Tom Cruise with a cat's head in Legend, thankfully it was out of budget so he couldn't do it. I'm not saying the film was a masterpiece, I am saying there are forces at work that thankfully keep great directors from shooting themselves in the foot. Be it producers, editors, gaffs, budget, whatever.

The movie gods are bigger than directors, and films come together in very mysterious ways.

6 Replicants were on the run. One died in an electric fence. Pris, Zorah and Leon were retired by Deckard. Roy expired.

That leaves one missing.

(this is not true in all versions of the film)

Some very good points. Here's an interesting list of Executive Meddling from TVTropes. (new window)

The movie only makes sense if Deckard is a replicant. It is in the unicorn. The unicorn.
 
2011-05-28 7:34:40 PM  
Deckard also had a lot of photographs around. Replicants commonly had photographs to give hard evidence of their implanted memories.

It's a compelling story whether Deckard is or isn't a replicant, for different reasons. What isn't compelling is the voice over. "Rachel was special, no limited lifespan". And they drive off in the stock footage from The Shining.

This is the most overt, but yeah, the unicorn too.

How can any serious sci/fi fan, or fan of this movie in general, feel the theatrical cut with the DREADFUL voiceover, is the best version? No doubt, I rail against post-op work on movies, but this may be the best argument for it.

Some people think that it's a sort of Sam Spade film noir thing and it is but that doesn't stop it from sucking. Harrison Ford himself was pissed about it. And the "happy" ending in that version was appalling.

For the love of God... Deckard is not a farking replicant! It makes no sense! He is out-thought and outfought by every single one of them, even Pris who is just a sex doll. He can't even kill Roy when he's armed and lying in ambush. The unicorn thing was just an out-take from Legend which Scott crow-barred in in an attempt to add more depth which the film does not need. Deckard is a depressed, alcoholic, emotional cripple who executes runaway slaves for a living. He is so dehumanised he is less human than the replicants. He is not a goddamn replicant. It's just Ridley Scott being a dick. He wasn't a replicant in the book. He wasn't a replicant in the original version of the movie. I don't care what Ridley farking Scott says now, DECKARD IS NOT A FARKING REPLICANT!!!!!!

So Deckard. Is he a replicant or what?
 
2011-05-28 8:03:54 PM  
Another clue that Deckard is a replicant is that all the basic rules of the replicants that he should have known had to be explained to him. The four year life span, implanted memories, etc. I realize this was for the audience's benefit but still.

Still, I prefer the idea that he isn't one but it works both ways.

That's sort of what I feel.

You make a Replicant Destroyer. So, to design the perfect machine to kill Replicants (including advanced infantry models), you make it as weak, slow, and fragile as a standard human.

He gets his ass beat by Zora.
He nearly gets killed by Leon, but Rachel intervened.
Pris kicks his ass, and would have easily killed him if she wasn't showing off.
Roy could have easily killed him numerous times, but decides to toy with him, then spare him.

Plus, Roy's decision to spare him doesn't make sense if Deckard is a Replicant. Roy wanted to prove that Replicants were just as capable of empathy and mercy as a human. More so, since Deckard is trying to murder him. Deckard being a Replicant cheapens Roy's death.

The point wouldn't be to create a "terminator", it would be to create a human who thinks he's a human.
