Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great. Blade Runner is an excellent movie and it's special effects were awesome for the time.
he's being an ass. He thinks that people shouldn't discuss movies that they have seen recently in the movies thread. If it's not new, it's not relevant. He should just create a "New Movies, just out in theater" thread.

So Blade Runner is about humanity and life and death. Already it deserves attention. The replicants, we are told, are less than human: they don't have empathy. At least that's what the corporate designer wants us to think. He is god, he is the decider.

But he's wrong. The replicants do have human emotions. They love, they want, and they cherish life. This desire, becoming a demand, for more leads a rebel replicant to violence and murder. He is played like a psychotic madman, but at the end, you feel bad for him. You empathize with him. I don't want to die so soon either, Roy. Especially neither do people with cancer or other terminal diseases. Wouldn't 150 years be nice?

Treating the replicants as slaves is as morally wrong as treating black people as slaves. So we say they are less than human, but why? Because they are made from humans? Are not other humans made from humans? Because they have no soul? From a Christian perspective, this is intriguing. We can consider this, though perhaps theologians and philosophers would help us greatly here. Oh well, we will give it our best. It is not the material that determines a spiritual soul made in the image of God and connected to Him. It is not the millions of atoms that compose our bodies. There are perhaps other life forms other than human that God granted spiritual souls on other planets in other solar systems in other galaxies in other clusters in other superclusters. As human beings, that we have a spiritual soul given by God to us is a belief from revelation. We don't know about what else, but we must consider that God is not limited to 'souling' us homosapiens alone.

My point is this: if we come into contact with other creatures, even those we make and consider artificial, and they exhibit displays of human like self-awareness and emotion, we must give it the benefit of the doubt that we are encountering a precious life we similar human dignity and that it would be wrong to deny them this. If our AI robot starts saying "I deserve better than this!" I think we need to listen up.

Blade Runner tackles this. And it does so in a fantastic way. Its vision is remarkable. The music, which offers us this calm amidst the storm, reminds me of Taxi Driver's. It allows the audience to breathe and sort this information out.

And Harrison Ford is just great in this. I couldn't believe it. He transcends his "action star" persona by miles.
Yaaaaaaaaaay Jenson.

Nerd cred++

Also, I love the soundtrack to this movie. It is sheer brilliance.

No, I'm seeing it for the first time ever.

I should have mentioned that I watched the Director's Cut, not the original theatrical version, and not the actual director's cut: The Final Cut.

Blade Runner came out before Jenson was born. Whether he's kidding or not, it's not unreasonable to assume he's never seen a movie that old. I certainly haven't seen all the classics from 1960.

The whole thing I don't believe was sarcastic, simply the note about people not having heard about it.
