  1. you may dare, but it’s my favorite film of all time so you dared wrong in my eyes, still nice though :-p

  2. The problem I have with all anime is that the faces are always frozen. Only the mouth moves. There’s no expression and, using stock anime character/facial templates, no character. Pass.

  3. john i have big respect for you, but this is a bad comparision. they should have done it gits 2innocence parade scene style, that would impress me.i wonder why there was never a full movie of that quality?

    while entertaining, the excessive echoing repetitions of dialog bits did it in for me. couldn’t watch past the halfway point. why is that audio technique a ‘thing’? it needs to stop
    to stop
    to stop

    huh?

    I get the Blade Runner hate and the Ridley Scott hate and they “why the hell is there a unicorn in this movie” hate.

    But come on. Visually Blade Runner is one of the few scifi films that have held up special effects wise from the 80s.

  6. Gavin Rothery posted a link to the video, but I made it and posted the link to reddit’s cyberpunk and bladerunner subreddits. Check the subreddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/Cyberpunk/comments/2akv9p/blade_runner_anime_version_trailer_this_is_a/) versus my facebook. I lived in Japan, and I went to North Carolina State University.
