Lio's Traveling Puppet Show
Now Playing: Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner"
All those memories will vanish…like tears in the rain.
Deckard wasn’t a replicant – he was a cephalopod.
I would pay good money to see that.
Ohh, I’d so like to see that! Ishy is such a perfect puppeteer, and Bladerunner is such a good movie! YES!
No puppet could take the place of Daryl Hannah!!!
BTB, According to IMDB, there is a sequel in the works.
I guess it’s like the humans in comics having 3 fingers and a thumb, but squid are decapods, not octapods. (e.g. Wiki: “Squid, like cuttlefish, have eight arms arranged in pairs and two, usually longer, tentacles.”)
Where’s the unicorn?
Love that movie!
A few comic strips over, perhaps?

why couldn’t philip k dick get more of this attention while he was alive?
I see now.
Fabulous film, and one of the best with Harrison Ford! My favorite scene:
Tyrell: [Tyrell explains to Roy why he can’t extend his lifespan] The facts of life… to make an alteration in the evolvement of an organic life system is fatal. A coding sequence cannot be revised once it’s been established.Batty: Why not?Tyrell: Because by the second day of incubation, any cells that have undergone reversion mutation give rise to revertant colonies, like rats leaving a sinking ship; then the ship… sinks.Batty: What about EMS-3 recombination?Tyrell: We’ve already tried it – ethyl, methane, sulfinate as an alkylating agent and potent mutagen; it created a virus so lethal the subject was dead before it even left the table.Batty: Then a repressor protein, that would block the operating cells.Tyrell: Wouldn’t obstruct replication; but it does give rise to an error in replication, so that the newly formed DNA strand carries with it a mutation – and you’ve got a virus again… but this, all of this is academic. You were made as well as we could make you.Batty: But not to last.Tyrell: The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long – and you have burned so very, very brightly, Roy. Look at you: you’re the Prodigal Son; you’re quite a prize!Batty: I’ve done… questionable things.Tyrell: Also extraordinary things; revel in your time.Batty: Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn’t let you into heaven for.
Alien would have been better, especially if one of the puppets had a hole in the abdomen
I think Phillip K. Dick would have something to say about the origin of the story. Calling it “Ridley Scott’s” is like calling “Bambi” a Walt Disney story.
