Flick Pick: Bladerunner
Bladerunner (Warner Bros., 1982)
Ridley Scott's brilliant film noir thriller, with Harrison Ford, Sean Young, and Rutger Hauer set amongst a visually stunning imagining of a near future, wrapped in sci-fi and yet all too chord-strikingly human.
Not counting the news outlets or websites along the full range of accuracy and veracity, I follow 16 or so actual individuals' handwritten blogs. Looking them over, 8 of the 16 are current serving or former military and 2 of those 8 are some variation of high-speed low-drag elite forces ninjas. And 2 are cops. So in other words, the same folks I trusted in the military not to wet the bed, sh*t themselves, or otherwise run around like headless Nancys, are the same folks I trust on the interwebz, for demonstrating pretty much the same trustworthiness and circumspectly responsible behavior. Color me shocked.
Comments are fully moderated, due to idiots and trolls. Grown up discussion here will appear just as soon as I have the time to push it through. No warning shots will be fired. If you can't maintain decorum and polite behavior, I won't toy with you, I'll squash you. If one of your comments disappears, you f**ked up. If all of them do, it's time for you to go. Disagree with the points made, on the merits, and you're good. Go after me personally, or other commenters, and your comment will never see daylight here. My tolerance for skirting the line is at absolute zero, and will remain there. Don't f**k up.
