Tomorrowland, Orphan Black, The Lego Movie, Jurassic Park, Blade Runner
In every moment there's a possibility of a better future, but you people won't believe it. And because you won't believe it you won't do what is necessary to make it a reality. - Governor David Nix, Tomorrowland
I won't be seeing Mad Max Fury Road. Because it is overdue, overblown, feeding the wrong wolf, no longer relevant, and absolutely worst of all not filmed in Australia. If a fourth Mad Max film had been made back in the 90s, or even 10-12 years ago, it would have worked. And maybe wouldn't have had concept art that looked like it was copied straight from Dark Sun. And best of all had the distinctive look and feel of the Outback that is only a short drive away.
No, the franchise-revived movie I am most looking forward to is Jurassic World, and the movie I am most pleasantly surprised to be looking forward to seeing again is Tomorrowland. Because, as Ambassador G'Kar once remarked, the future is not what it used to be - and, we should have all had jetpacks by now.
Regarding another future we're fast catching up to: forget about whether Deckard is human or not, or what Harrison Ford's appearance in the upcoming sequel may say in answer to that - is Tyrell still a replicant, as scripted, even though they never got round to filming that scene; and, if so, what does that say about the corporation he ran, and city he lived in? Maybe they're all replicants, and all the humans are living in the Off-World Colonies.
And, like that, my batteries run down and sleep cycle glitches again.
