That's what I got, and that was my second faster attempt.
Do we have to join a battle for the rights of artificial lifeforms now? Because, I'm not sure I have the guts for it.

Nah we just have to try and get someone in a headlock using only our thighs.

Oh! Well, in that case, I'm your replicant. I look good in a leotard, too.

Unfortunately, I can't take the quiz - computer is too outdated, probably, or the browser is. Doesn't matter though. I've often been suspected of being part replicant anyway. No point in denying it. :p

Me too. We ought to team up - if not for the rights of artificial life forms, at least for the right to look futuristically awesome. :D

You probably only need to update the Java plug-in.

Change the visual setting and soundscape and you don't have a Blade Runner film, you have another disappointing cash-in.

Yep.
Even just producing a sequel is a crime. Not doing it properly is an even bigger crime.

I have to admit I preferred the original version with the voice-over.

There would have to be a good reason for changing the visuals.

Doesn't the fact that Harrison Ford is in it blow the whole 'is he or isn't he' of the original movie?

Is it true that the final act will feature a giant mechanical spider?

That would indeed kill it stone dead. Look what happened with The Wild Wild West.

I always thought he was but the ending of the original version suggested he would live longer than the average replicant.

No matter what Sir Ridley says, making Deckard a replicant goes against the theme of waking up to the validity of the other race's right to life if he was one anyway. It's like if in 70s sitcom Love Thy Neighbour, Jack Smethurst turned out to be black all along, to use a tortured analogy.
