RE: True...

re: Blade Runner. Having read both the novel by PKD and seen the movie of the novel, I think that the film adaptation was faithful enough to the book. I don't feel that Ridley Scott screwed it up. Rather, he brought the novel to the big screen with visual excitement.

I think Syd Mead, the conceptual artist behind the set design, really deserves credit for the atmospherics and mood that were part of the movie. More so than the novel which reads sort of dry and lacking in visual description.

However what Scott will do with the up-coming sequel remains to be seen. I hope he doesn't turn it into something repellant.
