Ford flying a plane in Raiders Of The Lost Ark

In case there was any doubt as to whether anything in this whole goddamn world was sacred, news that the long-mooted sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi touchpoint "Blade Runner" was actually moving ahead emerged last week to answer that with a resounding, "Yeah, no." In the days since, we have gone back and forth — hope is trying valiantly to trump experience — in regards whether this can possibly amount to anything good. First, we have the major boon that the directing reins have been handed to Denis Villeneuve, a truly original filmmaker whose last film, the eerie "Enemy," indicates his comfort with ambiguity, while the rain-washed aesthetic of his previous thriller, "Prisoners," and its tone of dread and fatalism are reminiscent of the original "Blade Runner" on a more surface level. Moreover, we'll mostly glad it's anyone but Scott whose recent efforts — "Exodus: Gods and Kings," "The »

Artificial intelligence – and its close link to the essence of humanity – is one of cinema’s favourite topics. There are tons of films about robots with varying degrees of sentience. 2001: A Space Odyssey, I, Robot, The Terminator, Blade Runner, Her, Wall-e, and A.I. Artificial Intelligence are just a few of them. The list could go on and on.

After a whirlwind second season ending with Frank Underwood in office as the President of the United States and the fate of both Rachel Posner and Douglas Stamper unclear after the former’s attack of the latter, season three has a high-stakes tone to maintain. Fortunately, the first half of the season is very watchable, remaining appropriately dramatic without being transparent and avoiding the stumbling block many political dramas face of putting too much dependence on ridiculous standards of practice within the halls of power. With that being said, Fema has tweeted about the new season, stating, “Hey, Frank Underwood: We’re not on board with claiming your own emergencies. #HouseofCards” in regards to the character’s twist on the Stafford Act. However some drama-for-the-sake-of-drama is to be expected and so far in season three, »

It's been a strange couple of weeks of films with the boys. First, we had a period of almost three weeks where I didn't get to see them because of all sorts of different scheduling issues. The hardest part of adjusting to life as a divided family is making my peace with the very different way the kids and I spend time together now. I've gone from having hours with them every day to having a handful of hours every couple of weeks. It makes time feel much more precious, but it can add a layer of stress, as well, because I'm constantly aware of the ticking clock. I know the boys feel it, too. We talk when I don't see them, but it's not the same. You try having a serious conversation on the phone with a seven-year-old. It's just not satisfying, no matter what. Kids today don't really »

Like all great genres in gaming, the point and clicker came to life in relatively slow fashion, with players getting their first lateral workout around the time On-Line Systems – the artist soon to be known as Sierra – opened the doors to their Mystery House in 1980. This was soon followed up by the likes of Wizard And The Princess and Kings Quest.
By the time LucasArts joined the party at the end of the decade with their own spook house romp, Maniac Mansion, the typing command menu of yore had a new rival in the now familiar mouse-controlled interface.
The advent of the nineties saw the genre enter its halcyon phase, with LucasArts and Sierra launching a number of enduring franchises, along with other developers trying to emulate this success by creating their own bigger and better adventures. Be it by unleashing the dialogue-based adventure upon us (The Longest »

Friday was a big news day for Blade Runner fans: not only was it confirmed that Harrison Ford would return as Rick Deckard – the antihero at the centre of Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece – for a Blade Runner sequel, but it was revealed that Denis Villeneuve, director of Prisoners and Enemy, was coming on board to helm the new film.
With this came the announcement that the screenplay – by original Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher, along with Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green – was ready to go, and that the film would begin shooting some time next year.
Now is going to be a time rife with speculation. After fans have first got past the fury they might feel over Blade Runner getting a sequel at all (the questions of “was there any need?” and “why does Ridley Scott keep doing this to his own films?” need to be out of »

Wake up! Time for a sequel!
We knew Ridley Scott was working on a sequel to Blade Runner. Since the first rumors, few details emerged, but it seemed to have been worth the wait. Variety confirmed that a sequel is indeed in the works, with actor Harrison Ford back as replicant hunter Deckard. Phew! The sequel is meant to take place several decades after the events of the first one, which was set in the very near future 2019 Los Angeles.
However, Ridley Scott will not be back in the director's chair. Considering his latest efforts, it may not be such a bad thing for him to take a break, especially as his heir apparent is Quebec director Denis Villeneuve! Ridley will produce the film along with Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, who noted Villeneuve's "singular talent".
