I’ve heard this from someone else. Might have to watch it.A Scanner Dakly, been a while, this film is so trippy, so gloomy, so surreal... And it's the only Philip K. Dick's movie adaptation which stick to the script and not just steal a concept from one of the many he wrote to make a sensational businessed piece of shity-art. I advise the book though, the feelings of paranoia and losing of identity are more tangibles
Blade Runner is amazing.Awww come on man, no one can deny the utter beauty and existentialism of Blade Runner: The Director's Cut. I literally just bought a new Bluray copy because my old DVD copy doesn't scale right on a 4k tv any longer.
Total Recall (1990) was fun too, sure a bit more, eh, commercial? But mad decent nonetheless.
Does not compute.I would feel differently if I really liked Blade Runner I suppose, but I don't.
He absolutely was. I can’t believe he wrote the “Tears in Rain” monologue.Rutger Hauer was the real gem of acting in BR

I can get where you're coming from with this. 2001 is in my top favorite films, but for being only 2hr long, it sure does drag... I just like to watch it mostly when I'm peaking on LSD and want to question creation lol. Some of my favorite films of all time are hard to re-watch over and over i.e. Apocalypse Now: Redux.I feel the same way about 2001.
I don't think I've ever actually watched Blade Runner in it's entirety. Perhaps I'll check out the original, then the more recent.

My favorite John Waters film is by far Serial Mom. If you haven’t seen it, please do!Great film. I honestly can't believe Alyssa Kempinski (Carol, the hooker) lost the Best Actress Oscar to Frances McDormand.
The last film I saw was Hairspray. My God why in the living fuck do people keep casting John Travolta? Now they're casting him in female roles? You'd think since he was in Grease and Saturday Night Fever he'd be able to dance and sing better... but it's not the musical numbers that bothered me. Throughout the entire film Travolta butchers his accent, which is bizarre considering he is American to begin with and nobody else in the entire film is even attempting to do a Baltimore accent.
Michelle Pfeiffer (holy shit is that really how you spell her name) did a good job of reminding me why I don't see her much any more.
The songs were generic and forgettable.
The political message was confusing. At one point there is a parade of black people marching down the street, demanding equality on television. The main character - Travolta's daughter - hits a policeman in the head with a placard. Later Queen Latifah's character refers to her as a hero.
The young black guy says he doesn't like everybody reducing him to his skin colour, then he sings a song about skin colour.
This is a white film with mostly white actors about race inequality in Baltimore. I'm not one to nit-pick in this department, but in this case I can't help but think that the story should have been told from a black perspective.
