Q&A: Ridley Scott Has Finally Created the Blade Runner He Always Imagined

I am so stoked for this. I'm getting that 5-disc box set the day it comes out.

I'm also glad to hear they are trying to blend the new footage and effects seamlessly and aren't going to be taking the "Star Wars special edition" route with tacked-on f/x that stick out from the original footage.

Funny how how Ridley Scott directed what are possibly my two favorite films, "Alien" and "Blade Runner", but none of his other films have done anything at all for me. He should do more Sc-Fi! But I guess after those two, he really doesn't need to.

Ridley has a very unique talent for making compelling sci-fi. He does it in a way that no one else can touch. I second the motion that he does at least one more good sci-fi before he kicks the bucket!

I love "Blade Runner," but after that boneheaded piece of slop "Gladiator" I've come to view Ridley in a different light. I still haven't run into anything that cracks "Brazil" by Gilliam; which pound-for-pound, I think, is one of the most inventive visions of a human dystopia on film.

Ditto on "Brazil." That movie terrifies and fascinates me.
