    Sci-Fi Blade Runner (1982) & Blade Runner: 2049 (2017)

    Off topic as hell, but I'm going for it. Tiran, if I may, I have to humbly disagree with your assessment of the book 1984 in the regard that it hasn't come to pass outside of Maoist China. I recall growing up in the 1960's when privacy was at a premium. In the book, electronic surveillance...

    Sci-Fi Blade Runner (1982) & Blade Runner: 2049 (2017)

    Interesting, isn't it? Brings us back to the age old question, "what is real"? (thanks Morpheus) Just how physically "real" was Joi? She and K were interrupted during a kiss by a phone call from his boss, she was real enough to be able to light K's smoke with just her finger, but still Joi...

    Dune 2019

    So far, the casting has been somewhat interesting: Jason Mamoa as Duncan Idaho, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Javier Bardem as Stilgar, possibly Zendaya as Chani. Oscar Isaac will be Leto Atreides, but I'm personally unfamiliar with him. Decent, and a little surprising casting, and I am...

    Odd Thomas

    Much obliged, Tom! IOU one....makes me desire to watch this again this weekend. "They say we only use a fraction of our brain's true potential. Now that's when we're awake. When we're asleep, we can do almost anything."

    Fantasy Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

    I wonder if they'll have two different endings for the new Godzilla vs Kong that they did in the old King Kong vs Godzilla. In the Japanese release of the film way back then, Godzilla won their battle, whereas in the American version of the film, Kong won out in the end. "Now, Officer...

    Odd Thomas

    If anyone is a fan of writer Dean Koontz you should be familiar with this character. Koontz wrote eight books concerning Mr. Thomas, some are very good and others just so-so, but the movie was very well done, imho. The late Anton Yelchin in the title role of Oddie, (very well casted) with Willem...

    Sci-Fi Blade Runner (1982) & Blade Runner: 2049 (2017)

    That's interesting Verna. Just about every guy I talk to who has seen 2049, outside of this site, tell me they would love to own a "Joi." Listening to them, I sincerely believe there is no sexual component involved in their opinion. Makes me wonder if a 3d companion is more of a "guy" thing than...

    Fantasy Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

    Glad they are bringing back Ken Wattanabe for this sequel. Good actor who brought some credibility in the first flick. (Along with Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche, although their characters were killed in the first one. ) I recall being in the minority of people who thought this first movie...

    What Are You Reading Right Now?

    "Odd Apocalypse" by Dean Koontz. Odd Thomas is one very interesting character by Koontz. Very good movie adaptation of the book with the late Anton Yelchin in the title role and Willem Dafoe as police chief of the fictional Pico Mundo, Calif. "Fate is not a straight road. There are many...

    Sci-Fi Blade Runner (1982) & Blade Runner: 2049 (2017)

    Thanks Tiran. Interesting points. And I wonder if an entity like Joi could ever be sentient with enough A.I. After the Joi in my house understands and adapts to my personality and environment, then wouldn't my Joi be different from everyone else's? She may never be "solid" so to speak, but...

    Dune 2019

    And you can throw in Charlotte Rampling as Rev Mother Mohaim. They still have a ton of casting to do here, and I have no idea when filming is due to start, but I'm getting too old to wait much longer. I can't imagine who they'll cast as Leto, Chani, Feyd,or Stilgar. I do know who I'd like to...

    Dune 2019

    So far, two adaptations of this book have hit our screens. First, the Kyle Machlachan, Patrick Stewart version from 1986 which, imho, was ultimate garbage. The second, which I have some grudging respect for, was the Scy-Fy Channel version with Alec Newman that was long enough for the plot to...

    Soldier - The Outer Limits

    DannyMcg. Not only did the plot probably inspired the movie, "Terminator", but Harlan Ellison sued the producers for plagiarism and got an out of court settlement, plus an acknowledgment in the credits. And yes, being the old fart that I am, I do remember Michael Ansara from the '60's. Not so...

    Sci-Fi Blade Runner (1982) & Blade Runner: 2049 (2017)

    At first,folks, I was one of those people who wasn't thrilled about the news of a sequel to Blade Runner. Some movies just should be left alone. I thought this was one of them. I found myself pleasantly surprised, especially the plot twists that I didn't see coming. "SPOILERS" I never...

    Sci-Fi Blade Runner (1982) & Blade Runner: 2049 (2017)

    Forgive me folks, I realize this thread has been dead for a few, but I do feel the need to throw my two cents in. First, Droog1, I have a feeling you and I will get along quite well on this site, another handle I used to use on other sites was "droog5150," so I have a feeling we have a few...

    Whats up everyone?

    Thanks all! Looking forward to some interesting conversation. Momentarily hanging out at my usual stool at the Korova Milkbar. Fan of Frank Herbert (screenersam, have to agree with the last few books of that series, although still better than the prequels by Brian Herbert), Orson Scott Card, and...

    How are you folks? Found this site after surfing the net for a few. I used to hang out on Dune specific message boards in the past but came upon you guys and the site looks interesting. Thanks for having me and take care all...
