I saw people run out of the theater with Jaws. I think it's still an excellent example of what a really good director can do on a fairly limited budget (Spielberg's "Duel" was an even better example).


"Bonnie and Clyde" had an implied oral sex scene--we picked up on that one pretty quickly...might have been the first time I even imagined such a thing. Then there was that extended machinegun scene.

I never saw it, but I remember news reports of people passing out during The Exorcist. That only made people want to go see it more.

I hate Gosling, but the trailers look pretty good. I think the movie will be ok.

I hope not. But I admit I was really excited about this movie until this latest trailer. No I'm a little .

One of the great things about the first BLADE RUNNER movie was that its scope was epic by being so small. Deckard wasn't out to save the world. He was out to save his soul. The epic struggle of good and evil wasn't played out on a global scale; it was fought in the hearts of the characters, especially Deckard and Batty (who both win in the end).

The sequel ... ? I dunno. That latest trailer made it look like replicants are about to take over the world and it's up to the Blade Runners to stop them. Seems not only a bit shallow, but very been-there/done-that.

Good statement. Yep.

Ridley Scott wants to pretend that Bladerunner and Aliens can be part of the same universe simply because he's dropped a name or two across them, but actually they can't be part of the same universe if "Tyrell failed" and yet there are "offworld colonies" predating the original "Bladerunner" that can't exist in the same universe as the later "Alien Covenant."

This isn't "Bladerunner," and the new movie isn't going to be "Bladerunner."
