'I'm not in favour of potchkying with it, but if something's bothering you...'

Is a ’director’s cut’ ever a good idea? The director's cut has been a feature of the home video landscape for years, getting a significant boost from multi-disk DVD and now Blu-Ray sets. There are some pretty bad ones around, but which are the best? Movie sites like Shortlist, IGN Movies,, FilmWad and Empire have all given us lists of the best (and worst), and online discussions have suggested others (Blade Runner tops most lists, but beyond that they diverge significantly). Where do you start when that two-hour epic isn't epic enough?

The sound of future replicants?

Daniel Lopatin is a Brooklyn-based electronic music composer who records under the name Oneohtrix Point Never. In a recent New Yorker article he confessed to Sasha Frere-Jones a desire to score Ridley Scott's upcoming "Blade Runner" sequel. His new album -- combining shades of Vangelis with tiny samples pulled from a web site featuring '80s TV commercials -- can be heard in its entirety here.

Okay, now he's not a replicant.

Okay, now he's not a replicant. Contrary to what Ridley Scott said, Harrison Ford claims Deckard was not a replicant. Where's Phillip K. Dick when you need him? Oh, right...

Dekard a Replicant

Dekard a Replicant
The fact that Ridley Scott felt it necessary to share this information totally ruined my day. Not because I ever thought that Dekard wasn't a replicant, but because by the question remaining open it allowed one to take the film on so many more levels. Now he's just a robot. Thank you Ridley for clearing up all those annoying mysteries.
