Blade Runner. I watched it once as a kid, some scenes of course scaring the hell out of me, making me question, what is death? What is naked people?

Last night in dad’s reverie of late-late night, he put on the Laserdisc Directors Cut of Bladerunner, the version director Ridley Scott REALLY wanted.

Known as ‘future-noir’, this cult-based work is more and more being recognizied as a masterpiece of quality, vision, story, art and morals. I was blown away again at watching it.

I still have yet to fully comprehend, enough, to tell you. I just want to let everyone know, this movie will be remembered in generations to come as amoungst the best and historical of film.

I…I can barely describe it. It’s plot, it’s setting…the cinematography and light, dialouge, acting, and subtle surprises…endings you don’t expect.

Do yourself a favor. Watch the Director’s Cut. And be blown away.

That’s right, you know that A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise? It’s getting a remake movie.

Freddy Krueger, the burn victim villain with the claws and the means to kill people in their sleep. 6 sequels, 1 non-offical movie and Freddy vs. Jason film in the early 2000’s. A cultural icon. A horrifying nightmare to some, entertainment to many, and a sexy bloody beast to some.

So far the plans going on of the remake, in filming, have been mixed. Sure, the latest horror-icon remake Friday the 13th wasn’t that bad! But remaking such a more humor and well-known faced character? Freddy is known for personality and his face played by Robert Englund: Now he’s getting new actor, a slightly different plot-line, and expected to loose any of his humor.

What I miss is that it seems this new Freddy won’t have a smile on his face. I prefer he does look sadistic but, if he’s kept stone-cold-evil I’ll have to cry. It would be a shame.

In fact…hey, it’s looking good! EVIL. FIREY. WOAH MAN.

Jackie Earle Haley to play the new Freddy.
