Blade Runner 2

So its official that Ridley Scott is returning to the directors chair and looks like no Deckard (which in my mind is a smart move). Looking forward to seeing a sequel to my favourite movie of all time. Now if we can just see Michael Fassbender and the new version of a Roy Batty type character with Tom Hardy as his muscle, that will be great.

So thoughts anyone?

Re: Blade Runner 2

Ridley has not really made a great movie in about a decade so my enthusiasm is dampened by that. I'll still see it of course.

I'd rather he just direct the Mass Effect movie and let Blade Runner go.

While I don't think it was best picture I thought Gladiator was pretty damn good, and I've always liked Black Rain.

Re: Blade Runner 2

Scott has made some really good movies since Blade Runner. Including one great one. Gladiator is none of those IMO.

Regardless, I think this is a really pointless endeavor. BLADE RUNNER isn't a franchise, it was a story (more of a poem, really) and a damned fine one. It doesn't need to continue.

As long as you aren't referring to Black Hawk Down ... this.

Hopefully Vangelis does the soundtrack. Synth music is timeless.

You think so? I find may 80s films to be dated as products of their time because of their synth scores. I watched Driving Miss Daisy again recently, which of course is a period piece set before the 80s. However, portions of its score give it away as an 80s film.
