I’m imagining an identical movie, but every character (main or extra) is looking at their phone throughout.

It should be good to go for another few years. Should have got a nexus 7. No incep date.

(which makes no sense. It should be no fixed lifespan)

Well, it’s here and we don’t have flying cars, offworld colonies, or genetically engineered supersoldiers/sex slaves. But by golly, we do have an LA that’s belching fire right now, so they got that part in the opening sequence right, at least.

Incept date is the “birth” day, not the death day.

The replicants have to look at phones too, but they resent it more.

Right. Which means saying “no inception date” makes no sense.

My childhood movies promised me a dystopian future with flying cars, and all I got was instant access to the sum of human knowledge in my pocket. I feel cheated.

I saw Los Angeles Plays Itself yesterday, and was blown away – generally, but also, in Blade Runner’s case, specifically, about how much mileage you can get out of L.A.'s landmarks, and how this doesn’t ruin anything, but rather accidentally, retroactively elevates BR to meta/pulp/postmodern/pop levels… sorry for the long sentence.

Thank you for acknowledging this important month.

Anyone want to storm the toymaker’s apartment with me in downtown Los Ángeles?
