This is likely to be crap isn't it? Harrison Ford hasn't looked like he gives a shit in a film since Air Force One.
don't be such a Negative Nancy
But also Prisoners which was so-so
I hope so
How is he still alive? Isn't he a replicant and don't they expire after a few years?
( Isn't there a shot where he sees his hand is getting stiff and he knows he doesn't have long left or am I imagining that?)
it's been a while since I've seen it.
clue's in the name
but why would they make an old looking version?
^I've pretty much saved the film here.
Tyrell is making that point to them. Yes, it's also a point that Ford makes in his 1982 studio-enforced voice over, but I presumed it came from that notion. Tyrell has been planting replicants all over the world, and they're not like his other ones, he's designed them to be as real as possible, leading to Ford being manifestly only as strong as normal man. When Commander Adama says about how long she will live he just doesn't know the whole story.
that Deckard is a replicant
but I won't
the original film makes no sense. that's not a problem for Blade Runner, too bad about sequels tho
it makes cinematic sense i mean but
of a good prequel/sequel to a film that came out decades before
It certainly disappointed people but it's clearly a very good film in its own right, Sofia Coppola's acting aside (and I'd maintain it's mostly just not up to the standard of those around).
You know I'm right. That finalé is fucking immense.
It's Andy Garcia that ruins it for me, can't stand him in that film.
...and what struck me was that it wasn't Sofia Coppola's acting that ruined it, as seems to be accepted knowledge, but rather the ridiculous Pope storyline. It is so weak compared to the other two.
Good looking film though.
But I can accept she's fairly wooden.
I don't fully recall the storyline. I watched them all for the first time in one go when I got the DVD set. I guess I was expecting GF3 to be really bad due to all the comments at school when it came out, so I was pretty impressed.
like godfather 3
it's not considered the best one, but that's just them
You were just too late. TOOO LATE.
remember them being not great but admirably dedicated to retconning the various plotholes/continuity errors, and kind of keeping quite faithful to the feel of the original novel which makes sense to me now i know K. W. Jeter was a friend of philip k dick... Kind of want to give them another chance in the light of reading the very brutal and weird Dr. Adder which has a very positive introduction from PKD despite containing a character who is basically a really harsh mockery of him :D
though he appears to have pretty much invented steampunk, which I'm not sure I can forgive
This? Or that new Alien film they're making that will be a direct sequel to Aliens and make Alien³ vanish into nothingness and bring back Michael Biehn (presumably).
Batman v Superman, now that might be hilariously awful (it is directed by Zack Snyder after all)
I think most DC fans are just going to be hoping they don't remember it too much and banking on Suicide Squad working out.
Pros - Margot Robbie
Cons - Jared Leto
I've only seen him in Fight Club and Panic Room and he's excellent in those.
Also, I was meaning more the writer/director who has a really good record for films he's had strong creative control over.
Makes me irrational.
What's wrong with you? It's wildly unrealistic but it's aping Hitchcock films, which are likewise.
or something: http://www.gamesradar.com/neill-blomkamps-alien-sequel-wont-undo-alien-3-or-alien-resurrection/
but yeah this has a much better chance of being a good/less awful movie than Blade Runner 2
It needs to be on the level of...
It can't be a big shiny nothing like I presume modern films are because I don't watch any.
That's the most important thing. Zomby on twitter wants him and Actress to do it, says Aphex would be passable. It'll just be Hans Zimmer or Cliff Martinez wont it...
...Pop Will Eat Itself? Miles Hunt or something?
Never heard of him.
Oscar's aren't on my radar and I've never seen or heard anything from Black Swan, vaguely know what it is though.
He did the music to Moon. Also that track from Requiem For A Dream/Sky Sports News.
The music for Moon was really good though.
I've got it on DVD can't remember any of the music mind, it's usually one of the only bits I remember too. I'll have to re-watch.
Pretty similar to stuff from 28 Days Later...
After a google, though he's alive. Not heard anything he's done for years is he still any good?
He's still alive, he does the soundtrack.
You're going to be right aren't you...
his last soundtrack was...
'Trashed is a documentary that follows Jeremy Irons through once beautiful destinations that are now converted to landfills.'
Might be a good metaphor for the new Blade Runner to be fair.
(in a long shot, JEREMY IRONS is walking around a beautiful destination now converted into a landfill; he picks up a baseball cap and shakes the dead rodents out of it. Before he can put the baseball cap on his head and do a funny little dance while wearing it, he spots something in the distance)
JEREMY IRONS: (looking directly into the camera, from a distance) Hey! Is that a camera crew? Oi! Bloody! Clear off!
(the camera surveys over a huge landfill, we can see two pigeons fighting over a ruined fragment of an old 'Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins' Gameboy cartridge. It stops at the ideal entrance point to this area, and - after a few minutes - we see JEREMY IRONS walking into the landfill, before seemingly spotting the camera and hence immediately turning around and walking away. After some steps, he proceeds to a jog)
(much of the footage is damaged,so there are digitally distorted shots of the landfill, and a quick cut to JEREMY IRONS quite close up, seemingly getting up the cameraman's grill)
JEREMY IRONS: I--I booked seventeen taxis to different locations to try and throw you off! For heaven's sake! Can't... can't a well-known acting man even walk around landfills to muck about with old rubbish anymore!! AAARRRGGGHH
(more distorted shots, showing JEREMY IRONS with angry facial expressions, and acting accordingly)
JEREMY IRONS: (over indecipherable visuals) THIS BETTER NOT BE AT SUNDANCE!!! (audio distortion) ---in fact (buzzzzz) --same ruddy documentarians who kept follering me to Burger King ---- (dzzzzpppp) ----
with the following description:
"Two outer-space aliens visit Earth with the intention of blowing it up, but they meet a hot blonde and decide to postpone the planet's destruction in order to try to score with her."
Was on late one night on BBC with the sub heading of...
An emotional cop is slowly turning into a cyborg and he isn't happy about it, his last assignment before he retires is to kill some fucker. Then there are boobs.
Maybe minus the boobs.
it'd be fucking brilliant, AND he'd be able to make it for a couple of grand in a fortnight.
I'd be well up for that.
Playing the lead I assume
With the even more exciting news that there are sequels AND prequels planned. Do we even need the new Prometheus films now that we have this information?
