I actually liked the music, but did think it was a bit wet for the film tbh.
 
It was part of a series of films that were chase films (Bullit, Vanishing Point etc) so I went in expecting something a bit more action-y rather than a moody noir.

 I haven't seen many Oliver Stone films but this intrigues me to see more. I've not seen JFK or Platoon so will probably go for those.
 
 
 




 
I'm quite shocked by this confession. 
 
Platoon is an excellent film, Natural Born Killers is a special film too, The Doors is OK but a bit bloated and cheesy and I don't like any of his other stuff much. 
 
That film with Benicio Del Toro and Salma Hayek that Stone did- "Savages"- was one of the worst films I have seen in recent years. Utter shit.

Nightcall and Hero were my favourites. It's that film that convinced me Gosling was the perfect choice for Blade Runner.

Pretty sure I was shown parts of both JFK and Platoon when i was at school.
 
 
The Red Letter Media guys have done a good re-view of Blade Runner here...

Pretty much sums up what I remember about it from the one time I've seen it.
 
How can a film that clearly has so many flaws be so widely regarded as the best sci-fi ever? The good stuff is amazing but some of the flaws highlighted in that vid are just
 
The narration & unicorn

Midnight Express was sick. Late 70s film about a guy who tries to smuggle a load of hash out of Turkey and gets banged up. Great story and some top gun acting from the likes of John Hurt.

Also finally caught up with We Need To Talk About Kevin which is pretty bleak but, again, brilliantly acted and put together.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK

Doesn't rate Blade Runner, rates the third Spiderman reboot 12/10, what a mong.

PS. the narration is NOT in the proper version.
Pps. Shut up

Where did I say I don't rate it?
 
Like I said, the vid I posted is good as they highlight all the pros and cons with the film. There's a great section in it where they discuss Harrison Ford and Ridley Scotts disagreements on Deckard being a replicant. They read out a recent statement from Ridley Scott which is jokes.


Surely you can't have such a strong allegiance to Bladerunner that you refuse to acknowledge its flaws?
 
 
 
Also, the narration was in the theatrical release wasn't it? Which some would say IS the proper version.
 
And Spider-man Homecoming may not be better, but it is less boring.

Did you come to this opinion because you noticed those flaws in the film, or because you watched a youtube video of some nerdlingers pointing out flaws?

It pretty much does turn into BofB imo.

 
I've never been less confident in a statement.

Re: RE: Film reviews 2017/07/18 13:15:13 (permalink)
I've only seen the Final cut. I had no idea the original narration was so awful until I watched the RLM video. I also had no idea the unicorn scene was shoehorned in from one of Scott's previous films.

The reason I posted the video was to ask what all the Bladerunner aficionados think of those issues.

From memory, the first and only time I watched it, I didn't come out thinking Deckard was a replicant. I thought it was ambiguous.

According to some in comments the unicorn footage was NOT from another film and was filmed for Blade Runner.

This was alright, 7/10 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4062536/
 



Yeah I watched that a few months back. Looked pretty shit but was pleasantly surprised. 
Wasn't sure what to make of Patrick Stewart; I couldn't really deal with him playing that character. Too many preconceptions in my head from everything else he's done.




yeah, Green Room was quality i thought. enjoyed patrick stewart tbh
 
as good as that was, i actually think Blue Ruin is even better. a lot of films are called 'thrillers' but that is genuinely thrilling
 
never seen Murder Party but got it on the list
 
big fan of Jeremy Saulnier based on what i've seen... really economical writer and clearly a very visual storyteller. knows how to create something utterly compelling in 90 minutes too, which seems to be a forgotten art

'room' is fantastic. that film belongs to the little kid as well as the woman though. the idea that shes oscar material and hes nowhere is ridiculous. he could have been a right jarring little cunt as well.

He's just being a tit as per usual. Never had an original thought in his life. I have seen Blade Runner about 50 times and never felt the need to pick holes in it as it's so perfect (the Final Cut)

Nope. I should really just out of interest but why ruin it when i've not heard good things. Even Harrison & Ridley didn't want it, it was there because the studio insisted. They thought viewers were too dumb to handle ambiguity. I first saw the directors cut which was a free VHS with the game, i think playing the game and then seeing the same locations in the movie made it have an even bigger impact on me.

Realising that my 2 favourite films of all time were both made in the same year is a mttpm. (Blade runner & the thing)

re: blade runner... the voiceover and the happy ending were added by the studio and are utterly appalling. they also cut out the unicorn bit for the theatrical release. and of course it was made for that film specifically, hence matey leaving the paper unicorn outside deckard's room at the end
 
anyway, the final cut is the definitive version is fucking brilliant. the pacing is immaculate. the tone is just perfect.
 
obviously people like different things, but if you think it's boring then you kind of give up any right to be taken seriously on the subject of science-fiction or even film generally
 
i lasted one minute of that video posted above. christ those guys are cunts. why would anyone watch half an hour of that shit?!

watched mindhorn yesterday. thought it was ok tbh, iirc it got slated in here. bit of mindless stupidity. really like julian barratt
 
for some inexplicable reason i watched 'horrible bosses 2' a few days ago. absolute shit from start to finish, one of the worst films i have ever seen

Saw Dunkirk at the BFI iMax earlier. They are one of few cinemas showing it in the full 15/70mm format. The resolution was 18K and it looked stunning.

Just about the most visceral and draining experience imaginable. The scale and scope of this project is hard to comprehend. Nolan has made a Kubrickian leap forward as a film maker. Must be seen in iMax. Well worth it.

I went to see it with two others and we all almost had an anxiety attack within the first 10 minutes or so. We all agreed that Hanz Zimmer has the oscar in the bag. The score is nerve shredding and relentless. I'm going to have a lay down...

i really, really liked Baby Driver. apart from deborah being quite underwritten i thought it was pretty much perfect. great fun, highly original, very cinematic, thrilling, sweet, etc etc... everything i'm looking for tbh
 
i'd say it's up there with the hunt, get out, the raid and hunt for the wilderpeople as my favourite film of the last five years
 
(shout out to birdman, boyhood, room, blue ruin, skyfall, the babadook, whiplash, inside out, the revenant, midnight special, rogue one and hell or high water)

I haven't seen the movie, but from the trailer for Baby Driver it looks like 90% of the story comes from Drive. Not sure why people are saying it's so original.
