Re: Blade Runner

What makes the final cut so much better than the director's cut? I love the director's cut, and I'm wondering wether I should get the final cut. The video is cleaned up A LOT. You can actually see what the hell is going on compared to the Director's Cut. Plot holes have been fixed (ie, an unaccount...

I feel old too... except that I'm 21 and made a point of watching Bladerunner some years back. I liked it but never really LOVED it until I got to see the Final Cut in theaters last month with my ex. I dragged her to go, since she'd never seen it and had no interest in it (though she loves scifi). ...

Re: Blade Runner

As for slow, I've spent two days watching it, and I've only gotten halfway. Huh. Blade Runner never really struck me as slow. 2001, now that's slow. Dog slow. And, a dog of a movie, IMHO. I also don't feel that the "real" ending was that unhappy, just very ambiguous as most things are - i...

I actually prefer the thought bubble on the bottom. I like seeing the party first. You see them all there with their red alcohol-filled cups.

The easiest way of determining the origin of thought bubbles is to look at the direction it emanates from.

I wasn't sure which was reality and which was the thought bubble either. The 'flaw' is that by default, thought is positioned above reality in comics. What furthers the confusion is that the title specifically mentions a loud party, and the inverse of the cloudy thought bubble is a spiky 'loud' bubb...
