sithon: I thought Dekert was a replicant. How can he still be alive and old?

He got stuck in a refrigerator.

verbaltoxin: I dig Harrison Ford, he brought to life some of my favorite characters, but get the guy who played Captain America to be Deckard. Or his replicant. Or whatever.

Chris Evans? Hmm... I could see that.

Hey guys, I'm available

karmachameleon: hammettman: karmachameleon: gfid: Deckard is NOT a replicant.  This has been the subject of many an internet argument before, but I have PROVEN that he is not a replicant in many other threads.

In the original release, there's no hint he's a replicant.  In the DC, there are lots of hints and he most definitely is one.  And IMO that's what makes his character and this story so great.

Don't make me come over there.

How does it make the movie great?  It's merely a parlor trick and something of a twist for "twist's sake."  If anything, it actually lessens the impact of the story.  Deckard, as a human, comes to the realization that the replicants have more desire and passion to live than real humans.  As a replicant, his journey is totally cheapened and the final moments between Deckard and Roy Batty mean nothing.

What does it mean to be human?  Do you have to actually be a living human to be human?  Can humans be made?  What rights does a being who is not actually human but appears to be human in every conceivable way have?  Should they have the same rights humans do?

What is the nature of survival?  Are the murderous replicants "bad", or are they just trying to survive?  Is their behavior justified?  By building in a short life-span intentionally, do we "murder" them?  Are they justified in fighting back to try and survive?

Deckard confronts all of these questions and more during the course of the movie, as he comes to the gradual realization that not only has he fallen in love with one of them, but also that he is one of them himself.  The final scene is devastating as the truth is definitively revealed.  If you're watching the movie literally, you might be disappointed.  But "it's not what the movie is about, it's how it's about it" - the actual answer to Deckard's heritage is not as important as contemplating the questions the movie introduces.  The original theatrical version gave the audience a nice tidy little p ...

Very well put.

FeedTheCollapse: scumshine: Ford might not be the main character.

I'm hoping that this is the case, though I'm still not keen on a sequel.

He'll be the grizzled old has been that teaches the young hotshot how it's done.  And there will be a montage of the new kid getting ready for battle with the newest single from Metallica.

Hopefully they can get Damon Lindelof on the project to give it the treatment it deserves.

fta Ford said recently he was "curious and excited" about doing another Blade Runner,

This will either be epically wonderful, or a craptastic suckhole. I vote for beautiful and amazing.
