Blast it, I cannot wait! Where is my old DVD... http://today.reuters.co.uk/news/news...LADERUNNER.xml I had been following the news on this, it literally has been years since I last heard anything positive on this...

i'd not heard about any of this?!?!?!? still my favourite film of all time, in spite/because of it's flaws. i'll have to watch it at the cinema again (didn't catch it first time round - i was born in '79 - but watched it a few years ago in a blown up state at our local imax mega screen), and buy it on dvd...again.

I'm actually much more excited about the limited theatrical re-release. I never got to see BR on the big screen, so this is very exciting.

Movies made for the big screen are so much more compelling on the big screen. 2001 in 70MM was a thing of beauty as was the re-release of the Exorcist.

don't slur my good name! i was denouncing the crappy original, in much the same way the protestants denounced catholic decadence in pursuit of ascetic spiritual perfection.

i hope they sort out this error:

When Deckard goes to Ben Hassan's (the snake dealer), their lip movements do not match the dialog. This scene remains the same in BRDC, which means that Scott intended it to be there, or it was one of the sacrifices he was forced to make in meeting the BRDC deadline.

(taken from http://scribble.com/uwi/br/br-faq.html#10 ) i don't really mind the other jumps and hiccups in the film, the printout of the zoomed in photo being the most memorable, but that shoddy over-dubbing always really jarred me.

You know, I am still a little miffed with Ridley Scott's statement to the effect of "yes, he is a replicant, so what? Sod off!"

I don't know if I'm miffed, but it was certainly puzzling that he confirmed that Deckard was a replicant (although, the director's cut with the unicorn dream basically confirmed it). In my mind, he broke some sort of unwritten artist's rule (similar to a magician revealing how to perform one of his tricks). I seem to remember that Scott's statement kind of pissed off Harrison Ford. I would have much preferred that the question remain open for debate (e.g. the apparent miscount of the number of renegade replicants; Zhora posing the seeming throw-away line to Deckard, "are you for real?", etc.).

The way I heard it Ford was miffed because Scott had told him that he wasn't playing a replicant. Or something like that.

I can't wait.

"Is this testing whether I'm a replicant, or a lesbian, Mr. Deckard?"
