which was unusually invasive --- its optical tentacles

I finally saw the new [Blade Runner] .
Do you have any comments?

I've seen the original (1982-) movie maybe 10 times.

The original (1982-) BR movie was notable for its use of
retro- advertising neon signs.

The new BR movie may be remembered for the SONY neon signs.
( It stood out. )


>>> Sony profits soar on image sensors, games, “Spider-Man” film
TOKYO — Sony Corp. reported Tuesday that its fiscal second quarter
profit zoomed by 26-fold from the same period last year, boosted by
the success of its image sensors, game products and the latest
“Spider-Man” movie.

>>> Sony profits rise 346% -- If realized, this would be the highest ever profit for the company since its record-breaking year in 1998 when it earned 526 billion yen. During this period, Sony's first PlayStation console was proving very successful.

Regarding the use of [Pale Fire] in the new [Blade Runner] movie,
I don't have any special or notable insights,
and I see others are enjoying the puzzle more than I am.

re: [Pale Fire] book cover (clearly visible in the film)

Did VN like the crimson flames on the book cover ?
( it seems so wrong )

( it's so bad, that it's good / campy.) HH
