Blade Runner was released 40 years ago. Over the years it has become known as an artistic, cinematic masterpiece. Join Jay and Shua as they revisit this haunting and influential film on Enjoy Stuff! Ridley Scott's vision for the Philip K Dick novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' was very different from the book, and Harrison Ford's performance as Rick Deckard helped to make Blade Runner a legendary movie. News Did you know there was a secret Back to the Future museum in Massachusetts? The new Delorean Alpha 5 prototype has been revealed Hostess has shared its upcoming fall lineup John Williams had a surprise for an audience at a concert in the Hollywood Bowl. A new song from the new Indiana Jones movie! What we're Enjoying During Better Call Saul's final season, Jay wanted to rewatch all of Breaking Bad. It verified with him what an amazing pair of series they were. Are you a fan? Shua started a new docuseries on FX called Welcome to Wrexham. It's about a small, failing football club in Wales that was purchased by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, who want to revitalize the team and the community. A true and interesting story. Sci-Fi Saturdays/MCU Location Scout Sci-Fi Saturdays is going on hiatus until October 1 when we'll get our first 31 Days of Horror movie reviews. Make sure you check one out each day. Plus, you can go back and revisit some of his past Sci-Fi articles on Retrozap.com. And don't forget his articles on MCULocationScout.com for some great, interactive maps of filming locations. Enjoy Movies! Forty years ago, Blade Runner was expected to be another breakout sci-fi movie for the super star Harrison Ford. It may not have been the immediate success they had hoped. But over time it has only grown in popularity. Ridley Scott, early in his career, adapted the novel by Philip K Dick called ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?'. He changed the movie title to another title that he had purchased, called Blade Runner, which was not related in any way to the Dick story. The shoot was not an easy one, and sometimes tensions were high. But in the end we were given a sci-fi, noir, dystopian, cyberpunk piece of art. With themes of identity, technology, and mortality we, as an audience, are often left to interpret the stories of each of the complex characters. The strong use of symbolism, the unique lighting, and haunting music became a model for futuristic movies from then on. It spawned sequels and spinoffs that may or may not have captured the feel of the original. Be sure to check out Jay's Sci-Fi Saturdays article for Blade Runner for a terrific breakdown and analysis of the whole thing. What do you think of Blade Runner? Would you own a replicant snake?

Welcome back to the Phantom Galaxy! As Bill Van Veghel enjoys his well deserved vacation in the wilds of Canadian, Nathan brings in guest co-host Victor Rodriguez to talk all things related to the Blade Runner franchise. Starting with the quirky and dizzying novella 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick, Nathan and Victor roam the violent, rain-soaked streets of the future, hunting down each divergent part of this eclectic franchise. We take a deep-dive into the once neglected and now celebrated 1982 Ridley Scott classic that stands at the center of this universe, and then briefly explore a forgotten 1995 sequel novel by K.W. Jeter, the astounding 2017 sequel by Denis Villeneuve, and the 2021 animated series Black Lotus. Along the way we talk all things related to Blade Runner and the central theme of humanity and its definition that carries through each and every incarnation, discussing how each entry deals with those ideas.

In unserer 140. Ausgabe heißt Manuel den Ex-Borussen Ibrahima Traore willkommen! "Ibo" nutzt das Gespräch, um die Falschmeldungen und Fehlinterpretationen um die französischsprachige Sport News Africa Podcast-Episode mit ihm und Marcus Thuram zu widerlegen und für Klarheit zu sorgen, wie die Aussagen gemeint waren - hauptsächlich ein Witzeln unter guten Freunden. Der Flügelflitzer läd die Boulevardpresse zu einem klärenden Gespräch ein, gibt einen Treueschwur auf die Borussia ab und lässt gegen Ende zumindest ein Türchen offen, falls der Verein ihn in der Zukunft in einer Funktion als Teamcoach oder -vermittler sehen möchte. Wir danken Ibo für die Kontaktaufnahme, für das Vertrauen und die offenen und ehrlichen Worte.

Sorry, folks! It's been a while, but Renaissance Man Manuel was working very hard pursuing his many careers and Alexis was away meditating on the remaining terrace of the Bökelberg stadium. Pleasantly surprised to discover Borussia Mönchengladbach (probably the best club in the world) hadn't been relegated to the second division after all, and discarding Alexis' plan to meticulously describe and then categorise every single one of the remaining eight matches in a four-hour special, we decided to attempt a synopsis of last season by describing key moments of the campaign that we think will linger on, changes in personnel included. Furthermore, we look forward to life with a new coach and a "back to the roots" change of course promised by our new manager.

Blade Runner Blade Runner is a 1982 science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott, and adapted by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples. Starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos, it is an adaptation of Philip K. Dick's 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

When a fugitive group of advanced replicants led by Roy Batty escapes back to Earth, burnt-out cop Rick Deckard reluctantly agrees to hunt them down. A massive classic of the science fiction genre, one of the first great depictions of a cyberpunk dystopia and one of the best ad-libbed monologues in film history. We discuss the clues that point to Deckard possibly being a replicant, the differences between the directors “final cut” and the original theatrical release, lighting, the problematic scene and the overall shape of the narrative. Science-wise, we talk about an experiment to see if memories make the person or if it is a moral viewpoint that does.

In this episode, hosts Katherine Troyer and Toni Tresca discuss the 2014 American Persian-language horror/Western film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Episode Highlights: We examine how the film constructs the power of the Girl and turns the concept of monstrosity on its head by having the Girl embody many traditionally passive, feminine behaviors. We explore the ways that the film engages in spaces and identities that are liminal, hybrid, and at the margins. We talk about the background of and interviews with the director/writer Ana Lily Amirpour and how this film fits into a larger narrative about Iranian Diaspora. And we look at how the film uses the chader as both mask and cape, to create a narrative about women, hunger, and power. A Dose of Scholarship: We look at the 2015 Electric Sheep interview with Ana Lily Amirpour; Jude Ellison S. Doyle's 2017 Medium piece on "Hunger: Female Directors and the Rise of Girl-Cannibal Horror;" Emily Edwards' article "Searching for a Room of One's Own: Rethinking the Iranian Diaspora in 'Persepolis,' 'Shahs of Sunset,' and "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night';" Zahra Khosroshahi's "Vampires, Jinn and the Magical in Iranian Horror Films" in Frames Cinema Journal; and Shadee Abdi and Bernadette Marie Calafell "Queer Utopias and a (Feminist) Iranian Vampire: A Critical Analysis of Resistive Monstrosity in A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night."

Over the last several centuries, there has been one thing on which science and religion have generally agreed, and that is the fixity of the laws under which the universe came to be. At the moment of the Big Bang or the dawn of the First Day, the underlying principles that govern reality were already set, and they have never changed. But what if the laws of nature were not as chiseled in stone as Western intellectuals on both sides of the magisterial divide have assumed them to be? What if creation was an ongoing process, such that our universe in its beginning might have behaved very differently from how it does at present? This is the central conceit of Stanislaw Lem's story "The New Cosmogony," the capstone of his metafictional collection A Perfect Vacuum, originally published in 1971. In this episode, Meredith Michael joins JF and Phil to discuss the metaphysical implications of the idea that nature is an eternal work-in-progress.

As fictional Santa Fe Institute chaos mathematician Ian Malcolm famously put it, “Life finds a way” — and this is perhaps nowhere better demonstrated than by roots: seeking out every opportunity, improving in their ability to access and harness nutrients as they've evolved over the last 400 million years. Roots also exemplify another maxim for living systems: “What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.” As the Earth's climate has transformed, the plants and fungi have transformed along with it, reaching into harsh and unstable environments and proving themselves in a crucible of evolutionary innovation that has reshaped the biosphere. Dig deep enough and you'll find that life, like roots, trends toward the ever-finer, more adaptable, more intertwined…we all live in and on Charles Darwin's “tangled bank”, whether we recognize it in our farms, our markets, or our minds.Welcome to COMPLEXITY, the official podcast of the Santa Fe Institute. I'm your host, Michael Garfield, and every other week we'll bring you with us for far-ranging conversations with our worldwide network of rigorous researchers developing new frameworks to explain the deepest mysteries of the universe.This week on Complexity, we talk to SFI Postdoctoral Fellow Mingzhen Lu (Google Scholar, Twitter) about the lessons of the invisible webwork beneath our feet, the hidden world upon which all of us walk and rely — largely unnoticed, and until recently scarcely understood. We discuss the intersection of geography, ecology, and economics; the relationship between the so-called “Wood-Wide Web” and urban systems; how plants domesticated mycorrhizal fungi much as humans domesticated animals and plants; the evolutionary trends revealed by a paleoecological study of roots and what they suggest for the future of technology and civilization… This episode is an especially intertwingled and far-reaching one, as suits the topic.

Once rationalism fails, humanity regresses into what Nick Land calls a “dark enlightenment,” in which people revert to pre-rational mindsets. However, we can never really go back to the way we were in Platos Cave, and we enter novel forms of delusion. Philip K. Dick says we become trapped in the “iron prison” or rigid thought forms, however we are beyond even that - now we find ourselves more and more locked in the Digital Prison of an always online world.Part 2: The Astral Flight SimulationWe trace the trajectory of several Science Fiction stories concerned with Artificial Intelligence antagonists, from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Neuromancer, Tron, and The Terminator, to The Matrix, Ex Machina, and God Shaped Hole. In so doing, we see how humanities will is superseded by that of technology, how like Faust we hand over our autonomy - our eternal souls - in exchange for the promise of technology, and are thereby locked in the digital prison. Once there we are in a new Platos cave, in which digital shadows play out on the walls, in a mimicry of the fulfillment of a religious or even a rational world.All music herein used with permission by Turn Knight, check him out on YouTube

The author of today's short sci-fi story had an interesting life. Born on August 11th 1928 in Des Moines Iowa, after graduating high school he went to Rutgers University, two years in the Navy, then on to the University of Pennsylvania to become a Doctor. He helped pay for his medical degree by writing science fiction for magazines. In a 1952 issue of Other Worlds he said he started reading science fiction while at Rutgers and was reading sci-fi like a man possessed. Saying he ended up being the most incurable type of science fiction addict, the kind that has to write it as well as read it! He wrote more than 30 short stories and more than a dozen novels. If dating, getting married, college, medical school, the US Navy, writing for science fiction magazines and publishing his first novel weren't enough in the first 5 years of the 1950's, he also found the time to make 4 appearances on television as an actor, including one during the 8 year run of the The Philco Television Playhouse. And if that wasn't enough, the Good Doctor had a column in Good Housekeeping Magazine. In 1965 he wrote a nonfiction book titled “Intern” under the pseudonym Doctor X. His legal name? Alan Edward Nourse. He's perhaps better known as Alan E. Nourse In the first episode of the Lost Sci-Fi podcast we mentioned that Philip K. Dicks Sci-Fi Novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” became the movie Blade Runner. But did you know that the movie got its name, not the content, the name and name only from the 1974 novel written by Alan E Nourse The Blade Runner? 3 minutes and 7 seconds after the credits for Blade Runner start you'll see these words on the screen, With Thanks to Alan E Nourse for the use of the title Blade Runner. It really is 3 minutes and 7 seconds, yea, I'm weird like that. Matt had to destroy the rocket because it was a symbol of evil that had brought economic disaster. But must he also destroy—the future? From Imagination Stories of Science and Fantasy in March 1954 - The Fifty-Fourth of July written by Alan E Nourse.

If you're old enough you may be surprised to discover that this short sci-fi story was written by a man whose work you have enjoyed on the big screen for 40 years! His 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” became the 1982 movie Blade Runner, Starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos. A 1966 short story he wrote showed up on the big screen as the 1990 smash hit Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone. Other box office blockbusters based on his works are Minority Report directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, and 2011's The Adjustment Bureau starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. Amazon produced 4 seasons of “The Man In The High Castle”, based on his novel with the same name, set in a parallel universe where the Germans and Japanese win World War II and rule the world. Sadly he wasn't alive to see these incredibly successful movies. Philip K Dick passed away in March 1982, 3 months before Blade Runner debuted. He was only 53. Philip Kindred Dick was a prolific American science fiction writer. He wrote 44 novels and somewhere around 120 short stories, most of which appeared in science fiction magazines like the one we're going to share with you in today's episode of the lost sci-fi podcast. His work, although cherished by many, received very little acclaim for about 10 years until he wrote the novel The Man In The High Castle. Todays lost sci-fi short story first appeared in December 1953 in “Science Fiction Adventures” Magazine which cost 35 cents.

Welcome today. We are going to talk about the 1982 movie blade runner based on the Phillip K Dick novel, do Androids dream of electric sheep. The book and the film are set in a near future. Post-apocalyptic dystopia. One of my favorite genres as is common with the dystopian science fiction, John.Blade runner addresses a number of political and political science issues, political theory, and even philosophy are important for our frameworks while blade runner is not overtly political, it does tie deeply into questions of humanist and theological philosophy and to morality as well. Ultimately, all of this is critical for us deciding on what [00:01:00] political action, which is just our own moral, personal, moral action on collective scale to take.It's why it's fascinated Eric for so long, and I'm very happy to be joined by Eric and Zander hosts of reconsider podcasts. Thank you guys so much for coming on today. We are happy to be here. Thanks for having us. Reconsider is actually a political podcast. Eric and Zane. Help you contextualize current politics and history and broader forces and political theory reconsider helps you rise above the one-liners the 140 character politics and tribal narratives.Their motto is we don't do the thinking for you. And they really don't. That's why it's such an amazing podcast and one of my personal favorites. Thanks. But before we dig in too deeply, the. Here's some production details. We watched the final cut, which is the director's edition. Eric, you had commented on that.Why do you think [00:02:00] that that's a better cut of the film than it? It went through several evolutions. Yeah, it actually went through four there's the theatrical cut. The international cut. The director's cut. And the final cut. The final cut being the one that really Scott. Like the best. And I have strong opinions on this and I think most other diehard blade runner fans do, there's a consensus generally that the final cuts the right one, not only because really Scott liked it best.Uh, I don't know if Philip K Dick liked it best, but the reason we like it best is that the theatrical cut, um, has a number of, uh, sins. The biggest of which is the ending. The second biggest of which is the fact that. Um, Harrison Ford does a monologue. It does it like a backwards memory monologue. Like a lot of new are like, ah, she walked in and was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen lights up to hair kind of thing.And unfortunately what that does is it not only sounds [00:03:00] stupid in the context of what is otherwise a beautiful. Uh, but it also takes away the opportunity for you to do the thinking yourself. So, uh, you know, sort of as is the, our, our podcast motto, I hate when things do the thinking for me. Um, and so the, the, both the director's cut and the final cut take that those two key elements out the final cut adds another element, which is a unicorn dream.That's really important to how you interpret one of the big questions of the movie. Uh, so if, if you guys haven't seen it yet on the show, Or that eliciting, I highly recommend just go straight for the direct or the final cut and skip everything else. Pretend it doesn't exist. It had our runtime of about 120 minutes.And it was released in 1982. It had a $30 million budget, which was today almost $80 million. So it's a really, it was a huge budget, but it only brought in about $26 million. That's [00:04:00] first summer. It was, that was the summer that ITI launched and there was a couple other big movies. So it really, wasn't a huge commercial success for somebody who's into this movie.Do you know the reason why it didn't seem to catch on at the time? I don't know the reason, there's always a lot of speculation with this stuff, right? Some of it's a self fulfilling prophecy, um, and a bit of a, uh, like networking or positive, negative feedback loop effect. Anytime you release a commercial product, however, Um, blade runner really challenged, a lot of norms.A lot of people thought it was going to be an action movie. It was originally in the theatrical cut, um, advertised and, you know, the trailers came out as if it was an action movie and ended up being a very slow paced, very plotting, very grindy, methodical movie. Um, and so it was very different from. The producers or the, the, um, studio originally seemed to [00:05:00] promise to hook people.And I think they just watched it and, uh, you know, action movie fans watch it went, oh, this is garbage. I don't like it. It's not an action movie. And so they didn't tell their friends to go watch it. Um, and so I ended up being relegated to a, you know, sort of hardcore Saifai or dystopia or Neo noir fan cult, film.Uh, it's made a lot of money since that first. Since that first summer, of course. But I think that's why it never really took off if I had to guess. Yeah. I think it challenged the genres at the time. It didn't really fit into hardcore science, science fiction. It wasn't really action, especially that this is the time where star wars came out and Tron Terminator.Yeah, exactly. And so. It's ultimately not comparable to those, even though at first, the studio tried to compare it to those. I think a lot of people are disappointed, but I think for the same reasons that it challenges that so much is why it's such a great film and something that can really [00:06:00] teach you something in the way that star wars really has very little to do.It was fighting words for a lot of people. Yeah. What was your perspective of seeing this movie as sort of an outsider that you hadn't seen the movie before? So it wasn't as much of a call classic to you. Okay. Yeah. I've seen this movie like one and a half times the first time. Like a vacation weekend. I was with a bunch of folks and we turned it on and we were already, you know, three beers in, so, and we didn't even finish the movie.So I really, I kinda have to pick it back up again and watch it. And Eric, thank God for your movie notes because I went on Amazon and purchased the first thing I found. Kind of flip through the notes and realize it wasn't the final cut. So I went back and returned it and watched the final cut. Good, good stuff.As an outsider or at least someone who doesn't know nearly as much about it as Eric, I was struck by how similar certain elements are to a lot more modern Saifai that deal with [00:07:00] consciousness and artificial intelligence. Now that. 35 years after the movie, we have a much better understanding of how certain cognitive mechanisms work in the brain.And we have people out there trying to really push the envelope for how artificial intelligence works. So I've seen some modern scifi. Television and movies. And I'll bring this up at some point on this episode, that blade runner really seems to have a lot of common elements with, but again, it was 35 years.The movie was based off of a Phillip K Dick book. As Eric. You had said, you've read the bug Zander. Have you read the book? Unfortunately not. It was an interesting book. I believe this was the first Philip K Phillip K Dick novel. That was translated into a movie. Is that right? That's my understanding, certainly.And I think he wasn't exactly ecstatic about the way it came out. Now. It was a very, uh, a very contentious [00:08:00] development process, not as contentious as 2001, a space Odyssey, which is perhaps if I come back the next one, I'll want to talk about. Uh, yeah, Dick was, Dick was even more unhappy with the theatrical cut than Ridley Scott in part, because I think once you have developed a story and Scott came in and he really changed the story significantly, um, it is a different story.It is based on do Androids dream of electric sheep. It is not a really direct, um, uh, Translation of it. It's a it's, you know, changed a lot. And so I think for that reason, Dick kind of went, what the heck? And then he saw the theatrical cut and sort of legend has it, that he walked out in the middle of it.He was just as. A lot of his movies have actually been made into, or a lot of his books rather have been made into films lately, but he died in 1983, I believe. So he didn't really have much to say about how those other ones were [00:09:00] translated. Now, the cast was almost, I would say it was pretty much the perfect eighties past that had Harrison Ford as Rick Decherd look at young and sexy.Yeah, the per yeah, the absolute Harrison Ford at his peak Rutger Hauer who played Roy batty, which he's a very different character than he was
Would you willingly plug yourself into an experience-simulating machine such as The Matrix? What would happen to society if robots suddenly became conscious? What would you do if, for some reason, you encountered an utterly alien life form? Many of us first ponder big philosophical questions such as these through exposure to science fiction stories in books or movies. In episode 42, Ellie and David explore the power of sci-fi. After considering the origins of this genre, they interview Dr. Helen De Cruz, an expert on the philosophy of science fiction, about how our brains process sci-fi stories differently than other speculative narratives, including philosophical thought experiments!Works DiscussedHelen De Cruz, Johan De Smedt, and Eric Schwitzgebel, Philosophy Through Science Fiction Stories: Exploring the Boundaries of the PossibleJohan De Smedt and Helen De Cruz.
