:shock:

This film is now officially under Ebert's "Great Movies" category. Thank you, Mr. Ebert.

He gave it a mild thumbs up for the visuals in his first review, It was Gene that hated it.

True. But Gene did change his mind in '92.

Ebert went from calling it a three star pic to a great pic...this makes me very happy. :D

I think I'll demonstrate trickle down theory and piss on Siskell's grave. :lol:

Snicker snicker I use to say this about Ronnie Ray Gun.

Well, remember, Siskel changed his mind in '92, and seemed to like the film quite a bit.

This was posted today in his Answer Man column:

Q. I am delighted to see you finally list "Blade Runner (The Final Cut)" in the Great Movies Collection, as this is my favorite film. But you've made the same mistake that you made in your previous reviews, which is regarding how many replicants Deckard needed to hunt down. Deckard's police superior, Bryant, informs him that, indeed, six did escape; however, as was noted in the Final Cut (and interestingly, the workprint) "two were fried running through an electric field," which nullifies any chance of Deckard being part of the renegade group of Nexus-6s.

However, a few things should be noted. Originally, Deckard was to hunt down five replicants, with only one, named Hodge, getting nailed in the field (as reflected in the original theatrical/international and director releases). The fifth replicant was actually a character named Mary, and was to be portrayed by Stacy Nelkin, but her scenes were cut before filming began. This was far enough into production that Bryant made the dialogue mistake. Of course, it is a very valid theory that Deckard is, in fact, a replicant, perhaps even a Nexux-7 (that's not a typo), just not part of Roy's group.

A. I am slowly beginning to realize I am a replicant, programmed to spread disinformation to put any loose ones in greater danger.


"Nexux-7 (that's not a typo)" LOL.
