  1. Blade Runner 2049

    I always thought the pinkeye was a way bigger indication he was a Replicant than the origami but the whole thing’s got out of hand with what was intended or not. I can’t find the source but I read an article years ago with either Ridley Scott or the DP stating that the Deckard pinkeye shot was accidental. It was meant to indicate a synthetic, but it showing up in that one scene was accidental. Ridley Scott has stated several times that Deckard is a replicant. Harrison Ford has said he was told and always thought Deckard was human during shooting. The whole origami unicorn thing clearly implies he’s a Replicant. The story has more resonance if he’s human. At this point it’s all so convoluted, it’s become a point of contention and discussion among fans with no possible definitive answer. At the end of the first film he realises that if he’s human or not is irrelevant. And that’s who he is in 2049. He knows it’s what you do that matters, not what you are. Same as the spinning top in Inception. Doesn’t matter if it falls. That Cobb doesn’t care is the important thing.

    You see what happens? You see what happens Larry? You see what happens?! This is what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass Larry. This is what happens Larry. YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS LARRY? YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS.
  3. Which classics have you still not seen?

    Yes, it's excellent.

    Don't let Platoon put you off Apocalypse Now - I think Platoon is poor and Apocalypse Now is one of the best films ever made and it still totally stands up today to it's reputation. They're actually totally different films thematically. Apocalypse Now is really more about one mans plunge into some kind of madness, some ominous confrontation with an embodiment of 'darkness' for want of a better word and it uses Vietnam as a background to that. Whereas Platoon is much more a very straightforward movie about the Vietnam War.
  5. SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Must be, that looks just like what I thought at the time was a spinning train thing from the trailer.
  6. SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    I'm not keen on the 'I'm gonna be a pilot, the best in the galaxy' line. It always felt - to me - that one of the things that defined Han's awesomeness was not giving a shit, not having a plan. That's not the sort of thing he'd ever aspire to. Han just wants to make some space dollars and have some fun. Yes, he does end up being the best pilot in the galaxy, but more through having to be inventive and get himself out of stupid situations he's got himself into. That line sounds very aspirational and not the sort of thing he'd be fussed about. Doesn't seem to fit with the character as I see him. Otherwise it looks kind of ok. Glover as Lando looks ace though, can't help thinking a Lando movie might have been the better option here.

    Appreciate it, thanks

    Thanks for suggesting this. Any recommendation as to a good starting point?
  9. Oscar Nominations for 2017

    Don't they usually quote the 'Big Five' which includes screenplay?
  10. Oscar Nominations for 2017

    Well pleased Daniel Kaluuya and Get Out have been nominated. Personally think Blade Runner should be in for best picture and Villeneuve for director, but I'm not in the least bit surprised neither happened.
  11. Dark (Netflix)

    Just finished this and I'll join the positive vibe in here as I also thought it was excellent.
  12. Your favourite Christmas episodes

    The League of Gentlemen. Just in case
  13. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    This is absolutely spot on in my opinion. Some of the comedy worked, but the majority didn’t for this reason.
  14. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Have to disagree with that.

    Careful @Vemsie you've quoted those spoilers and not spoilered them
