    Yes there are hints. Nothing compelling though.
    It is a tremendous film though.
     
  2. Indeed. There's also the piano scene.
     
  3. Scott is on record as saying Deckard is a replicant.

    Yes but playing Devils advocate, and backing up BlueAnoraks comments, Ridley Scott didn't write the book (or read it!)

    And didn't direct 2049 either.

    So he might have intended Deckard to be a replicant in the original, but that doesn't necessarily mean he is supposed to be in the sequel, if the new director has a different interpretstion.

    It's a long time since I read the book, but I am pretty sure Dick left it as an open question.

    Watched the dark tower last night and enjoyed it very much although I probably wont watch it again.

    Dark Tower.
    I've only read the first 2 books so god knows how much they have actually slashed from the series.
    Would've made a good tv show over 5 seasons but this film was rubbish.

    2/10.
     
  7. I believe in the book it is left open but the first film is a piece of art in it's own right and Scott is clear he is a replicant. If in the new movie he is not, that would require some explaining. ( He has to be or not...he can't change)

    In the new version I think they pose a profound question which picks upon the ambiguity in this particular narrative, namely, that if the differences between human and android are now so small does it really matter anymore?

    The legend that 'is' Stony would gut you alive...

    It's such a bad representation of the books, which is what it's supposed to be!!

    Saw a trailer for Gerald's Game today looks interesting. Anyone seen it?

    It was good. As you could expect from the story it's quite slow paced to say the least.

    From what I've heard having not read the book, it stays true to it's story.

    It's not one I'd watch over and over but certainly worth a viewing.
