I don't think I've ever actually watched Blade Runner in it's entirety. Perhaps I'll check out the original, then the more recent.

My favorite John Waters film is by far Serial Mom. If you haven’t seen it, please do!Great film. I honestly can't believe Alyssa Kempinski (Carol, the hooker) lost the Best Actress Oscar to Frances McDormand.
The last film I saw was Hairspray. My God why in the living fuck do people keep casting John Travolta? Now they're casting him in female roles? You'd think since he was in Grease and Saturday Night Fever he'd be able to dance and sing better... but it's not the musical numbers that bothered me. Throughout the entire film Travolta butchers his accent, which is bizarre considering he is American to begin with and nobody else in the entire film is even attempting to do a Baltimore accent.
Michelle Pfeiffer (holy shit is that really how you spell her name) did a good job of reminding me why I don't see her much any more.
The songs were generic and forgettable.
The political message was confusing. At one point there is a parade of black people marching down the street, demanding equality on television. The main character - Travolta's daughter - hits a policeman in the head with a placard. Later Queen Latifah's character refers to her as a hero.
The young black guy says he doesn't like everybody reducing him to his skin colour, then he sings a song about skin colour.
This is a white film with mostly white actors about race inequality in Baltimore. I'm not one to nit-pick in this department, but in this case I can't help but think that the story should have been told from a black perspective.
I haven’t seen the new Hairspray? Frankly, I didn’t even know that it was remade! I am very curious to check it out now.@The Wizard of the Creek
I actually love John Waters and have seen most of his films. I didn't realize that he did the original Hairspray (it is the one of his films I haven't seen) but it makes sense I guess looking at the remake. I'd be interested to see if the original was better. I loved Cry-Baby. There is something missing in the 2007 version. The Waters magic isn't there. It doesn't have that crude raw appeal, although I know understand why they cast John Travolta since Divine (from Pink Flamingos) played Edna in the original.
Yeah, Wizard. It is not the fault of movies. Or TV. It is my poor attention span. The length of a TV show is fine, let's say 45 minutes. But then i would have to watch the whole season to get the idea. Movies are way too long in length. I lose myself somewhere, and forget the movie then, not even half throughWow! Only 4 movies per year generally? None so far in 2021? We are already halfway through this year as it is so far… and none seen as of yet to report about?
Alright, no judgments from me. I just happen to watch a lot of movies (at least 4 a day. No kidding!) i use to spend all my money on buying VHS tapes, then DVDs/Blue Rays. Now I have all of these streaming services and that fills my days watching movies. I don’t really get into TV series so much anymore, unless they are critically acclaimed or are somehow award winning or noteworthy?Yeah, Wizard. It is not the fault of movies. Or TV.
