Do you think Harrison Ford should reprise his role in Blade Runner? I enjoyed the original movie.
I think Harrison Ford is not a very good actor.
I also think the original Blade Runner was briliant and is not asking for a remake.
I am laughing at your terse but succinct response (which is sharply, but elegantly, phrased) in your reply.
In truth, I'm not at all sure what I can add to that.
To the OP: Is this an intended sequel, or an intended remake?
Either way, is it actually necessary (which is what I think Meister may have been suggesting ever so politely?)
A "Blade Runner" sequel has been bandied about by the movie powers that be since last year. And from what I have read, it is unlikely that Ford would reprise his role.
I agree with your opinion on the original. I have the special edition (Director's cut) Blu-ray set and it looks and sounds great.
Blade Runner I can watch over and over. A remake would be heresy.
The Final Cut is spectacular. It's the "Directors Cut" (quotes by design), with the lame voiceovers removed, the tacked on ending removed, some extended scenes - but also a _beautiful_ director supervised remastering and a reshoot on a number of scenes with cleaned up FX.
As far as a sequel - the story has been told. A remake? Blasphemy.
"I've… seen things you people wouldn't believe… Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those… moments… will be lost in time, like tears… in… rain. Time… to die…"
A sequel has been bandied about for many years, except now it's confirmed, and Ford is reprising his role. Shooting summer 2016.
I shudder to think what the Hollywood of today would do to Blade Runner.
Blade Runner set the tone for so many films that came after it. It's few early animations at the time was combined with fabulously detailed models. Some startling imagery seen in it came to pass in later years.
BBC has a written piece on it and on Minority Report, another film I find re-watchable.
There are a lot of elements in that movie that can't be copied today. The 80's architecture and feeling, the music from Vangelis. The original movie was so good that didn't need CGI, everything was resolved with a foggy background.
I am afraid it would be like the re-do of Total Recall. I haven't seen the firs sequel that give honor to its original yet. Look Stars Wars, look Terminator, only 1 and 2 where good.
Nope nope nope.
They first is brilliant, especially now with the director's cut/extended BluRay. To redo it or 'add' a sequel it would only half as good as the original at the very best.
Harrison Ford is a great actor and has done played in some really great movies. I think though at his age, a reprisal of Deckard will be a mistake. Just look at how old he seemed in the last Indiana movie. .
So I take it the Deckard is human folks win?
Otherwise, would he age as dramatically as Harrison Ford will have in almost 35 years?
Personally, I like the ambiguity of the Theatrical release. Is he or isn't he?
Let's see what an older Han Solo is like before he reprises yet another old role.
He was an excellent action/physical actor admittedly carried somewhat by personality and good looks. I don't want to imagine anyone else as Indiana Jones, Hans Solo, or even Bob Falfa.
Blade Runner? I see a remake as a losing proposition, but a sequel, why not?
How many votes for Grandpa in the flying refrigerator?
Did you just diss the Millennium Falcon? You're dead to me!
I took that as a Crystal Skull reference.
Lol I'd forgotten that scene. Then perhaps peace can be restored to the MR Galaxy.
I'd rather forget that whole movie!
It's not that bad tbh. Doesn't hold up to the originals though.
IMO it's just as bad as The Phantom Menace.
The Phantom Menace is bad. I though Revenge of the Sith was ok, but it's no where near as good as any of the originals.
That's the trouble with sequels made years later, they rarely hold up to the films we remember so fondly. But if the films are viewed as a new film as if they have nothing to do with the original, then I think they will get seen in a better light.
Yup, lol. It's not in my movie collection. Besides I thought refrigerators like that did not have latches on the inside. Oh yeah, it popped open on impact without smashing him into mush.
How could you possibly come to that conclusion?
Agree on both points, Movies like Blade Runner, Witness and K-19: The Widowmaker are good examples of his range and acting ability. I'd say he's a very accomplished actor.
As for a remake, I agree, nothing to gain and everything to lose. I see this as a move by the studios to try to wring more profits out at any expense.
