My favorite author. Since Blade Runner can't be the choice and and an obvious one it would be I will pick A Scanner Darkly which is my second favorite novel of his.

Why leave off Blade Runner?

Because it's the easy winner?

I guess this should be 2nd best choice.

While it would have a high percentage, I think calling a thread "Your favorite..." but not allowing you to vote for your favorite is kinda missing the point. But I agree with you, maybe the name should be "Your second favorite..."

But, whatever. I'll play along but will vote later. Might watch Minority Report again since I haven't seen it in a while.

For me, Total Recall is the best choice after Blade Runner. Minority Report and Paycheck aren't bad. If you've never seen Screamers, I recommend you check it out (I give it 4 out of 5).

I need to see the others... -kd5-

Minority Report for me. That was my 2nd Spielberg film in theaters....the 1st was JP back when it was released.

Total Recall right behind it though.

Re: Favourite Philip K. Dick adaptation? (non-BR)

Hmm, tough decision. I really like Total Recall and find it to be more entertaining than Minority Report, but Minority Report is probably the better movie quality-wise. Those would be my top two, anyway.

I used to think Screamers was pretty good but re-watched it recently and thought it was actually quite bad. The rest that are listed are just okay. All-in-all, it's hard to go wrong with a movie based on a Dick story.

Total Recall for me, even if Blade Runner was included.

A Scanner Darkly is the most accurate adaptation, Minority Report is the best made of the bunch.

I'd take Total Recall over Blade Runner any day. Hell, I'd take Minority Report over Blade Runner as well.

Believe it or not, the only one I am not a fan of is Adjustment Bureau. I felt it was a good premise that went in the wrong direction.

I never realized Dick was responsible for so much mediocrity.

He's not, but a lot of screenwriters and directors are.

Total Recall, followed closely by Minority Report. I had forgotten that Paycheck existed, and after recently seeing The Adjustment Bureau I'd prefer to do the same for that one.

I voted for A Scanner Darkly, though I really do like Minority Report. It looks like I have a lot of reading ahead of me.

Blade Runner, but it's not on the poll. So I voted for my second choice, Paycheck.

No you didn't, because I just voted for it and it's only got one vote. Wise guy...
