  1. This book has really hit its stride … PKD’s original novel was soooo much better than the movie!

  2. Better?  No.  Different?  Yes.  Both are tops in Sci-Fi, however, Blade Runner clearly had a lot more impact on Sci-Fi and culture and entertainment than the book ever did.

  3. OK … let me rephrase that … I have always been a huge fan of the movie. I think I was a sophomore in high school when it came out and I can still watch it with awe today. That said, PKD’s plot is so much more sophisticated and complex than the movie treatment… and that’s why I described it as I did. Yes, they’re two different media–but right now, I am enjoying PKD’s original far more than I did the movie. As far the graphic novelization goes, I have enjoyed how understated and sublime the artwork has been–and because that has been the case thus far, the incorporation of Munch’s "Scream" in #12 was fantastic. It captured the entire zeitgeist of the novel, in my opinion. Apples and oranges … I get it … but there simply wouldn’t have BEEN a movie without the original novel.

  4. Agreed.  But I’m betting Ridley Scott would have used his dystopian, broken down view of the future on some other project.  Production design-wise, BR was the next logical step after Alien.

  5. @Grandturk: Hmm … "Alien" wasn’t exactly set in a utopia … it was a dark, gritty, *realistic* world. "Blade Runner" does seem a logical extension from that sort of universe. This leaves us looking forward to "The Forever War": 

  6. I’m generally onboard for any of the Scott brothers films… But Ridley has a great eye for Sci Fi. I would have loved to see his take on something like A.I. or that Tom cruise speilberg one I can never remember the name off … Great movie except for the slapstick action scenes

  7. Minority Report
