After rewatching the first 50 mins of Blade Runner on blu-ray last night before falling asleep—mostly due to tiredness—it’s hard to believe that Scott made it. Alien too. I remember an interview with Scott around the time that Hannibal was released where he claimed that he no longer ‘obsessed’ over shots like he used to. I was like ‘yeah, no fucking shit man, that is pretty goddamn obvious’. The worst part is that he made it sound like a good thing. like a sign that he had found his ‘groove’ or something. That he was finally content.
He how went from Alien and Bladerunner to bland identikit films is beyond me. Maybe he only had two really good ideas and that was it, and he is now being outclassed by his younger brother, which is insulting enough.
^yes, it was shot on the RED.
What does that mean?
So, why was the film so terrible for you? I’m guessing it was the stupid/implausible behavior of the characters and maybe the fact that it hinted at dealing with more serious subject matter, but then turned into a silly horror movie.
I thought this film looked quite good, though.
The film was shot with a RED camera, which is a brand of digital camera.
Regarding my thoughts on the film, I’ll create a new thread. :)
