I feel like it's been a while since CL has had any sort of movie night, so here we go! Lets watch another movie, but this time around its not anime!
Movie Night will be on Saturday June 10 at Midnight (EST TimeZone; UTC−05:00)
(technically Sunday June 11, listen just stay up until midnight on the 10th).
If you're confused about the time, just use the Countdown clock to check on how close we are!
I'll be using the 3rd party streaming/sharing website Rabb.it. You shouldn't have to make an account to join in, but if you want to host your own thing some other time I recommend using it. Rabb.it has a text chat and even voice/video options too, but you can minimize them if they get in the way of your viewing.
As for the Link, I'll update the thread and Post it when the time comes.
As you probably know from the title, the movie we'll be watching is the film BladeRunner. For those of you who haven't seen it, its on the "Movies Everyone Should See At Least Once" thread for a reason, but I do want to inform CL users that this movie has some adult themes and content in it. Violence, Partial Nudity, etc. An in-depth list can be found here on the films IMDb page for parents.
Also there's an explanation in the opening credits that establishes some of the setting, so I'll go ahead and post that text here so slow readers don't miss anything:
Early in the 21st Century, THE TYRELL CORPORATION advanced robot evolution into the NEXUS phase - a being virtually identical to a human - known as a Replicant.
The NEXUS 6 Replicants were superior in strength and agility, and at least equal in intelligence, to the genetic engineers who created them.
Replicants were used Off-World as slave labor, in the hazardous exploration and colonization of other planets. After a bloody mutiny by a NEXUS 6 combat team in an Off-World colony, Replicants were declared illegal on earth - under penalty of death.
Special police squads - BLADE RUNNER UNITS - had orders to shoot to kill, upon detection, any trespassing Replicant.
This was not called execution. It was called retirement.
