  2. Excellent. I'm quite glad after taking some time off posting on the forum last year that it is now early in this year that I can make my mind up that I am done with this place for good. Cheers then, you cunt. Enjoy yourselves.
  3. I just put it down to some tech tracker off-screen stuff. Earlier on you see on the police chiefs desk a way of tracking where K was, even off duty, in his spinner. Not forgetting of course that K is the police, and they can do everything right? On 2nd viewing the only piecing together between scenes that jarred for me was Whilst I thought Harrison's performance and appearance late in was nice to see (a similar emotion to The Force Awakens) the film could have easily worked without it. If there is a third film I doubt there will be any continuation on the Deckard story line now. Leave it be, and let it be totally ambiguous. Of course in 25 years he'll be fucking CGI'd in somewhere though. I know he wasn't popular, but I thought Jared Leto's character was criminally brief. He was in, I think, 2 scenes overall? Shame as I think he was an interesting character. Still not a fan of CGI actors though, its still not quite there, although it was close in this, just one or two movements near the end of the sequence that fracture belief. Overall, I liked the film. Gosling did his best Bruce Willis in 12 Monkeys role by not trying to be like Ryan Gosling. He was superb in this, the facade didn't break at all through it. Bravo sir. Disappointments where mostly for me on the visual front. Mead's original designs were not really expanded on at all, I thought that this would have been more ambitious in that respect. Also while it is a pretty good soundtrack, its not as good as it could have been with a bit more time (since the original composer was replaced). I'd argue Vangellis' original is 25% of the experience of Blade Runner in the first film, this one wasn't even close. It suited the film though, but didn't add as much.
  4. If you want EVERYTHING from the original BR, this is your best priced option right now for £35. It's branded as 4K, but it includes all the prior editions all on normal Blu-ray discs. As all the other editions are out of print, this is a steal in comparison to high 2nd hand prices https://www.amazon.co.uk/Blade-Runner-4K-Special-Blu-ray/dp/B074SQ5559/ref=tmm_blu_title_2?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1517870500&sr=8-4

  6. Posters are fucking good though., Not seen any of the trailer yet, hoping for 60fps at 1080p Woody from Cheers though, fuck off
  7. I think the grid kids thing is an excellent idea really, and it would work with the darts too. But in reality no one will ever be truly happy with it. Once the next Twitter rant noting the majority of the kids are white boys, then it too will also be scrapped.
  8. Moody lighting Moody lighting, love it. What is that light and where did you get it from? Music sounds so much better in a darkened room, or even better sometimes, completely dark. Try listening to Talk Talk's "Spirit of Eden" side 1 in complete darkness, it is something else!
  9. I would of liked that too (same with the last two Star Wars films), apparently though the 2:40 ratio is Deakins preferred version, so don't feel too bad about it. For those going for the Blu-Ray on Monday, be aware that there are multiple versions with certain things missing, depending on your taste. I've read that the 3D version has a lossy soundtrack, the 1 disc version doesn't have all the extras, and its DTS-MA 5.1 and not Dolby 7.1 (Atmos if you have in, standard downmix to True HD 7.1 if you don't on the USA release). A bit of a mess. In summary, on standard Blu-Ray if you want the all extras available that are on the single disc USA version, you have to buy this 2 disc LE. But if you want DD7.1 Atmos, you will have to import it https://www.amazon.co.uk/Blade-Runner-Limited-Blu-ray-Bonus/dp/B00T7YOI3U/ref=tmm_blu_title_2?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
  10. Yeah I liked the first one (guessing the title is an EastEnders reference?) but not the second track.
  11. Attempting to get up to date, but the last episode (with the Aston, Jag and Honda with the banked track finale) was the best one they have ever made of The GT. I'm still a little bit weary of the centre stage Clarkson and Hammond get, to me May appears sidelined quite a bit / or totally exhausted by it, he looks like someone with half the energy he once had. Shame.
  12. I'd love to see David Lynch do a Star Trek, but not Tarantino. He is so close to greatness at times, but then fucks it up with either appearing in the film, or have some silly self referential sequence in it from some other films (or now even his own, the end sequence to Basterds was the same as Kill Bill Vol 1) and wrapped with a superhero speech. Nah
  13. Really, my lord, I had not considered that. The Grammys are that far behind.
