Oh, as long as he doesn't come back here, he's free to wreck as much havoc as he wants. And I'm sure he'll make plenty.

Sticks and I exchanged a few pleasant PM's over on Drumchat.com. I told him we have a pool going to see how long it takes before he's banned over there. he already has more posts than I do after a week. I think as long as he's getting his ego stroked he'll be fine. But when the nice comments stop, then the drama shall begin...

Blade Runner?!? ... that's a bit of an oldy so-so movie Dunc, you haven't got anything a bit more exciting to suggest?

What about "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly", it's an old one too, but it seems more appropriate to the topic of this thread :)

Haha. If I was in his position I'd try to get away with a little venting too. These things seem to go two ways - either through "my friend's enemy is my enemy" type bonding or people will tire of negativity. It depends on the crowd.

Happy to see Blade Runner for the sixth time. Always up for the first Matrix movie too. I'm trying to be healthy so I'm bringing nuts, liquorice tea, nicotine gum and a bag of legal synthetic weed. No caged pork on my pizza, thanks. (Bloody hippes!).

+1

I'ts never good to answer/bark straight away to provocative post or topic you really disagree, it's better to vent first, think it over... and then come back, funny thing is, 8 times out of 10, you won't bother to reply once you've calm down a bit, life is far too short.

Henri, liquorice tea is healthy if not overdone. The tea is made from the liquorice root not what we commonly call liquorice, that is mostly aniseed and sugar. It's best, not on its own but mixed with other herbs to add a yummy flaviour.

Definitely! My freezer is half filled with various types of ice cream (if anyone here visits Sydney in the summer and visits me they'll find that out). I probably should be joining ICA to lose weight - and I don't mean Insurance Council of Australia or International Chartered Accountants ...

Not overdone is good advice since one of the benefit is a laxative effect :)

So it's based on the root of the plant, interesting, when I was a kid I use to chew and suck a liquorice stick in my mouth for hours, until the wood would produce a stringy amount of yellow broken stuff which become tasteless after a while, I had no idea you could made tea with it.

Ok just looked over there for fun and I stand corrected. All of you were right. The guy is certainly well...

When I was on forums a great deal I recall that Drum Chat was where trolls went to rehabilitate themselves, because the primary moderator there was(is) a minister with counseling experience. So he did all he could. I remember Milk/Ludwig guy was over there for awhile too after one of his bannings here.

Wow, this stuff brings back so many old memories...many of them tied into a whole lot of fun. I remember dispatching that Colonel guy like it was yesterday. Sigh, I wish I had more leisure time. I now remember what a time consuming hobby all this was. Back to work.

Firstly, hello Matt! Great to see you kicking around these parts again.

Secondly, I've read that Glen is thinking of going into a joint venture with a drum store - operating as a place to trial kits. I can think of nothing worse. Imagine putting a deposit on a Mapex kit, going to Glen's to try it out and then the inevitable fallout when somebody changes their mind (which they're well within their rights to do).

Anybody here up for it?!

Oddly so-so?! Maybe the original theatrical release but the other cuts are just fantastic. It's in my top five and it's probably the easiest to watch of all five, so it's my 'popcorn' film. Now I think about it, the supermarket is still open (it's 3AM) and I'm craving chocolate. I spent all day working on the underside of a yacht and I've just about had it...

EDIT: I was weak and went to the supermarket, bought chocolate, popcorn (I actually did buy popcorn) and some generic Red-Bull like drink. It's now twenty past four.

More to the point, I have popcorn.

I used to have whole sections of the film memorised. Tragically, I've let it slip in recent months!

There's an idea for a one-man theatre production...

Have you seen the remastered directors cut version?

It's awesome.I loved that flick when It first came out and thought it, like 2001 was just miles ahead if its time.

I've seen all of the cuts bar the original 1982 theatrical release. I've watched documentaries that talk about how privileged I am to come to and see the Directors Cut as the first showing. I've seen the 'Final Cut' too (where all the replicants - including Deckard (oohh... controversial!)) have slightly orange eyes.

Basic pleasure model. I called one of my friends that last week. She didn't get the joke.

I haven't seen the final cut,but I have the original on DVD.There is some talk of a remake of "Blade Runner" and "Forbidden Planet"...I hope not.

They screwed up the "Day the Earth Stood Still" remake.I have the original on DVD also and it was the first time that I watched it without commercials.

And yes...I'm a si-fi junkie.

The original 'The Day The Earth Stood Still' is an undoubted classic. As is 'Planet of the Apes' (even though the makeup used to terrify me as a kid). I used to be much more into Sci-Fi and definitely more into books. 'Dune', anything by Iain Banks (particularly 'Excession' - it's hilarious) and Arthur C. Clarke. I don't quite know when I stopped reading, I suppose I became interested in girls!

Ok...I just ordered the Blade Runner Final Cut double DVD from Amazon.It's on sale for a little over 4 bucks US.With shipping and tax it was under 9 bucks total.

Now that I know Deckard is a replicant for sure.I just have to see it.I just read Ridley Scotts interview about the movie.

FYI..there are a few variations of the 82 release out there as well.Some were sanitized with less violence,and one has Zhora(Joanna Cassidy) actually doing her own stunt as she flys through a plate glass window as opposed to a stunt double that was used in the original.

I've read all of Herberts sequals to Dune ,but I wonder why it didn't translate well to the screen in three different attempts.I think direction was lacking.

I think it was hamstrung by the sheer number of directors they had. David Lynch is a great director but was joining a half-finished film that had run out of ideas and was massively over-budget. Add that to some pretty wooden acting (whoever it that plays Paul is terrible - but Patrick Stewart as Gurney is excellent) and the film never really works. It happens all the time with films stuck in 'development Hell' and with Dune, it was always very ambitious for its time and needed clear direction.

I don't think the 'Dune' story has aged well due to our increasing knowledge of Islamic stories in the West (if you take 'Dune' to be an Islamic allegory, which I certainly do in parts) but there's no reason why a much better movie couldn't be made.

Interestingly, Harrison Ford never considered Deckard a replicant. He is a replicant, dammit but it's one of the reasons Scott and Ford fell out when making the film. I can't imagine it was easy to shoot, either. That was an ambitious movie. I see CGI used really badly in more recent films and always cite the 'city-scape' at the beginning of Blade Runner as one of the finest examples of using miniatures for superior effect. It just looks better!

Ok, I had no idea that there were so many different versions of blade runner. I am familiar only with the original and the director's cut. Is it worth it for me to go out and get the final cut?

The reason I hesitate is because I thought Apocalypse Now-Redux almost ruined the original. When Willard steal's Killgore's surfboard it made his character look like a frat boy on spring break rather than the troubled, brooding, and conflicted soldier he was in the original.

The differences between the Directors cut and the Final cut are quite small. Certainly nothing to worry about and they're all 'good' changes.

There are so many stories around the cuts that it's hard to keep track. My favourite is that the 'original' cut that was intended for cinematic release (after being replaced by the 1982 cinema cut, with the voiceover, etc) was discovered by a few enthusiasts and played at some cinemas throughout the 80s and early 90s. Scott got wind of this and made sure that it was commercially released.

A few years ago, there was a great documentary released about 'Blade Runner'. I've watched it few several times.
