>tfw no ridley scott dystopia to live in
The shit we got instead sucks
>no giant blimp ads for the offworld colonies in the sky
just kill me now
Eh, the world was a lot shittier than the film led on.
The book explained that most of humanity left on Earth had side effects of radiation and chemical warfare from WW3, or something was genetically wrong with them. Deckard was constantly harassed to move to offworld colonies with his wife because they were healthy, but he elected to stay.
People also don't do much in home entertainment other than this dream machine thing that makes you feel whatever emotions you want.
But I really wish our cities looked like Blade Runner.
you have no idea how true this is
The walled city of Kowloon isn't there any more
I like both and look at them as different stories.
gtfo BB is goat
No one predicted that we would have something with more computing power than the computers that took us to the Moon that was small enough to fit into our hand and be a multipurpose tool and mode of entertainment.
Have you seen what 19th and early 20th century pre New Wave sci-fi came up with?
Sure it isn't anything like what we have today, but it is very imaginative.
At least we are starting to have self-driving cars. The more we have, the less accidents there will be.
I find it really amusing that all the self-driving cars that have been in wrecks were not at fault, it was almost always someone else sideswiping the car or fender bender caused by someone rear ending them.
like in 5th element, you create a virtual road map and make the cars go through them, not allowing complete control over it of course
Probably. I got them from
That's how pre-production works. You do know films are the results of many ideas, all edited together - they aren't just created immaculately knowing exactly what's needed, right? There's exploration to be done before production.
Fuck it, cyberpunk setting and concept dump commencing.
Some of the concept art for TFA was pretty good and never used in the movie.
looks like the movie Elysium takes this concept from him.
Everyone cribs from Mead.
Dude's a genius.
Give it another three years you impatient cunts
I wouldn't think so, seeing as its Coruscant and isn't Coruscant completely artificial almost to the core of the planet?
Eh, it wasn't that bad. If it were better recorded and acted it would have fit perfectly fine in a noir film like Blade Runner.
Some scenes did expound upon certain characters' motivations. It was interesting.
I'll admit half the time it was jarring.
I think it was mostly cut because Ford says "nigger."
What does /tv/ think at Total Recall's aping of the look of Blade Runner?
The movie wasn't good, but I think they pulled this look off
>Trackable mobile phones
>Anyone who dabble has easy-ish access to your webcam
>politics being absolute scum
It creeped up on us. It's because you are looking at all the wrong things, like super high-tech things being common. We are in it.
>Posts inferior anime loli while insulting tastes.
His tastes are everywhere. He is a Trekkie, though. We had a fucking second, smaller Christmas tree in the kitchen that only had Star Trek ornaments on it when I was growing up.
His favorite show is Band of Brothers, so his tastes are hard to read.
What's funny is when the "theatical version" came out I wondered why people lived in the city when there was pristine forests outside. Now I understand, I would still live in the city because that's where all the excitement is.
>minus the multiculturalism
Have you been to a major city lately?
That's not a dystopia when it's real life. Since it can always get worse in fiction. The problem is that terrorism, spying on citizen more and more openly, Monsanto putting copyrights on grain is the new normal. Soon it will be to have a gelocatable id chip that does credit car in your forearm.
TOS is good
Band of brothers is faggot tier
Tell your father to go fuck himnself
I watched the final cut a few days ago at my local independent cinema. I'd say it was probably the best movie experience I have had in 2015.
It was an odd audience to say the least.
There is a shitty low budget TV series called Charlie Jade that has a really good dystopia, everyone is microchipped and you can't do shit without one, massive wealth divide, constant spying, nations are done away with and corporations own cities.
The main character goes to an alternative reality which is actually us and your can see the contrasts and we are actually one step away from his universe.
Except Monsanto has not sued a single farmer for using their seeds without "permission."
They also aren't the seed company that most farmers get their seeds from, DuPont. They aren't owned by a CEO whose son got off from punishment for raping his own 3 year old daughter.
We already have the capability of doing that [see how cheaply and how much microchip tech has advanced for pets], its just fundamental Christians will go insane because apparently Revelations says something about barcodes.
Person of Interest
Lots of fun shots from the POV of an AI that has access to all the NSA security feeds, any security camera, any webcam
You can watch the first and last episode and get the entire story, writing is abysmal and its very low budget in places.
Great concepts though and the bad guy character is pretty interesting, I've sat through the whole thing twice. It's set in South Africa so its not your average shitfest.
Hitler was right
and had sweet ass /fa/ cape fashion
The thing I have against Monsanto is that an old botanist who is a friend of my mother has written a ton of stuff but never published because he is now dead as fuck, about how Monsato's seeds, once grown, are contaminating the plants around them so they to become unable to produce seeds. I know this sounds like conspirationist shit, but this guy is actually recognized and not some nutjob.
5'7" [there is a reason for that, and it isn't' manlet] He is 6'2"-6'3" depending on which shitty doctor he goes to in his backwoods town.
How about you, Anon? How tall is the average otaku?
Do you recommend it?
look on the bright side: we may live to see the West ruined by third world immigration :DDD
Maybe soon in N American and Europe you'll have to live behind 15-foot walls and have armed guards escort you if you leave the compound.
>The Beaners except for Olmos disappeared from 2019 L.A. That's impossible.
Nothing is impossible anon
you're a manlet
I'm not an otaku, I just like anime shit posting
Link? Other studies prove him wrong.
Ah, so you don't understand how genetics and genomics works, or horizontal transfer [which plants do not do].
And since your botonist family friend is dead and gone, he probably missed the genetics revolution of the late 90s until now. We changed a shitload of opinions then to now.
Though I do think that all of their activities need to be monitored to make sure they don't monopolize. But that will probably happen if DuPont doesn't squeeze them out first, seeing how wonderfully our government is handling monopolies these days.
All I can think of now is this, and the subsequent corporation ruling the world biz.
Speaking of which, despite the yellow filter, I loved this game. Too bad you can't get too comfy, knowing how the world is going to shit by the time the first one takes place.
>Do you recommend it?
Sure, it starts off kinda procedural, so they could con the network into buying into it. There's a lot of slow unveiling of the backstory. Season 2 and 3 are really good, then by season 4 it's so serialised it's kinda battling with its original story engine. It's also kinda gone off the deep end by that point, some of it doesn't work, but a lot of it is good.
It deals with ideas that are so on the edge of current events that they practically predicted the stuff in the Snowden leaks
This, it'll probably made bland and identical to any other current blockbuster so that it's "safe".
Hollywood is creatively bankrupt but the the masses eat their bland shit up anyway.
I know pilots are kind of bleh, and don't mind slow pacing introductions as long as they are justified. And you said seasons 2 and 3 are good, so that answers that question.
Thanks, I'll check it out. I really like the appearance of it.
Think a little bit harder. I know it's difficult, but do try.
Who would be under 6 ft and not a manlet?
This, I don't have faith in a Blade Runner 2, especially since it has to be all new material and they cannot base it off another medium of entertainment.
Just wait until Cyberpunk 2077. I've given up on Hollywood portrayal of cyberpunk.
Speaking of which, has anyone seen Oldboy [Korean one]? Is it worth it? The cover and poster make me think it is cyberpunk or at least dystopian.
Beware that it's garnered something of a Tumblr audience. This is also something that becomes kinda overt in season 4. According to Tumblr to two male leads are gay with each other and the two female leads that come in later in the show are also gay with each other. And the show listened to them.
Also note only snippets of the show are seen from the AI's POV
I don't have time for riddles
You fags didn't know Villeneuve and Roger Deakins are making it? It will be good and look great.
But Deakins said that he wants to do something different from the Ridley Scott movie, he wants to do his own thing. Also, he rejected lots of "scifi" flicks before this, calling them "scifi fantasy"
Yes, 100% accurate.
I am DeVito. AMA.
That's okay, I grew up on ClassicWho and had to deal with the fandom post 2005 so it's okay.
Fuck tumblr head cannon. They are saying Poe and Finn are a homosexual couple in the new Star Wars.
I'm okay with homosexual characters and couples in things, I just don't want it shoved in my face.
If it were solely from the AI POV I guess it would alienate some of the audience.
Dystopian? I'll still watch it, even if not. I guess Seoul has that metro punk vibe already.
I was misled by a cover.
I want to live in a capsule
I basically live in my room, it wouldn't be much different
I'm moving to Yokohama next week actually
Well, that's a relief. It's always something I had doubts about, but like you said, genetics and genomotonics, not my thing. I like how DuPont sounds like straight out of shadowrun.
why does Japan have such dope street furniture
>Has never driven in a forest or mountain surrounded freeway with zero street lights.
Headlights only help so much. High beams work only if you don't have opposing traffic, because I'm not a dick.
>Evangelion was set last year
>No tumbling down
Fucking kill me family.
Characters like Sebastian reflected differently. Also notice how his building is devoid of any residents excluding himself. Not to mention the ads that suggest they are practically paying people to leave Earth.
it looked like shit apparently because it wasnt the bluray version, it was the shitty overly dark theatrical version.
this is coming from my dad who saw it at a drive in. its now his favourite movie though.
Are you forgetting the part immediately after that gif where he plummets down 40 stories and almost kills everyone below him?
If you have an accident in a car it sucks, but you and the person you hit don't go falling out of the sky to kill yourselves and anybody that gets in your way on the way down.
The city is overcrowded yet entire buildings are seemingly deserted, it's so smoggy you rarely, if ever, see blue sky, hardly anyone seems to be able to afford proper lighting, the streets are filled with garbage, large corporations basically control everything and we use genetically enhanced humans as literal space slaves. It's mentioned a bunch of times that off-world is the place to be, probably because most shitty jobs are carried out by previously mentioned space slaves.
I mean, clearly America took a wrong turn at some point and just ended up reverting to the 19th century in terms of social order. The only real plus seems to be that at least some people have flying cars.
We're living in the last days. What you're seeing in this thread are the death throes of a psychotic civilization, one last frenzied spiral of
growth before it all comes tumbling down.
>"The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel."
This. They are in denial, but are well aware what's causing their problems.
How quaint and comforting.
There are many times people take out others in accidents without having flying cars
>The Martian was awful
I've heard differently.
Sorry, I'm in the state of no streetlights.
〔〔 〕〕 〔 〕 The story goes like this: Earth is captured by a technocapital singularity as renaissance rationalitization and oceanic navigation lock into commoditization take-off. Logistically accelerating techno-economic interactivity crumbles social order in auto-sophisticating machine runaway. As markets learn to manufacture intelligence, politics modernizes, upgrades paranoia, and tries to get a grip.
The body count climbs through a series of globewars. Emergent Planetary Commercium trashes the Holy Roman Empire, the Napoleonic Continental System, the Second and Third Reich, and the Soviet International, cranking-up world disorder through compressing phases. Deregulation and the state arms-race each other into cyberspace.
By the time soft-engineering slithers out of its box into yours, human security is lurching into crisis. Cloning, lateral genodata transfer, transversal replication, and cyberotics, flood in amongst a relapse onto bacterial sex.
Neo-China arrives from the future.
Hypersynthetic drugs click into digital voodoo.
Right, but current the drivers of both cars aren't guaranteed to die from a fall.
That said, the costs saved from road maintenance due to no real road would be big.
A more realistic solution would be what they had on the total recall remake, which is honestly a very cool setting, one of the best scifi ones I've seen
A lot of big cities have got the look I think. Just no flying cars, blimps and shit.
Fucking awesome pic... the contrast. Think some commie retard thought putting a beautiful blue sky on screen would be a good idea to make people feel as though the sky wasn't shit?
>Guaranteed to die
Depends how fast. Not necessarily a fall, but a plethora of other things kill drivers. I still think driving today is more dangerous than it would be in the world of Fifth Element.
I do agree with your Total Recall remake sentiment. It is much better than Fifth Element or most sci-fi I've seen.
Keep up, son.
No it's the opposite of that. It's an ad about pollution awareness.
The photographers have just made sure to snap it at the right moment so it looks like some sort of simulated sky
Superior cities coming through
Y'all niggas just need to move to Hong Kong. Live in your tiny tiny apartment 30 floors up and take a hike to Victoria peak. Hell every now and then pollution clouds roll in from mainland China to give it that grim dystopia feel.
Watch Ghost in the Shell movie, and subsequent movies and series if you want. There are a couple of more anime that do it okay, but I'll stop recommending it here since some frown on it.
There are also so many novels, the obvious being Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, but there are so many others. Neuromancer, Snow Crash, Frontera, etc.
>Pollute and judge others after
It is called learning from your mistakes and teaching others when you notice they are going down the same route.
Parents do this.
>plz spoonfeed my brain doesn't understand
Oh yes, I loved the first season and liked the movie. The second season not so much. Obviously Akira. There is also Paprika.
My favorite movie. More dystopian than cyberpunk.
I also highly recommend Snowpiercer, while on the subject of wacky dystopian settings.
What everyone else says. My grandmother lives on 850 acres of property in the woods.
The state where I live now has thousands of acres of uninhabited mountains and state protected forest.
Shouldn't you know about low population, being from New Zealand.
There wasn't exactly a lot of clean alternatives at the time and even if there were we didn't really know much about pollution in general to justify using them Chinese leaders knew exactly what was going to happen in terms of pollution and could just look at the past as a indicator.
However all China want is rapid economic growth. If the fastest way to grow their economy was to literally murder half of the population they probably would have done so by now.
clean alternatives weren't really the issue in america when it was industrializing, gasoline was a waste by-product and commonly dumped into bodies of water near oil refineries before gas engine vehicles were widely used
>tfw based Syd will pass away within our lifetimes
>maybe in the next five years
>tfw plebs and normies will never appreciate his influence on so many sci-fi movies
Sorry, I had already planned to watch The Professional tonight. Which should I watch first?
It actually isn't that bad to go to Deviantart
Browse Digital Art>Paintings and Airbrushings>Sci-Fi and use their little SitBack function to look at some wonderful art
That is a bit far, to be honest.
Think about the differences between 1916 and now.
Anon, it would make more sense from the perspective of the sheer scale LA had become in the film. No to mention the off world colonies. Iirc, there was to be a scene in space related to the Replicants coming to Earth, the ship looked like it came out of Alien and you briefly see North America at night. Most of the country looked as if it had become "mega-cities" for lack of a better term.
True, about the outerspace technology. I think that in 50 years we will have the ability to make robots look eerily human. Like we have the ability to clone humans probably now, but scientific ethic prevails.
Have you seen how much Seoul has changed in 50 or so years?
>Alien ship cameo
Really? When? I never noticed before.
Even so, this anon is right >>64356801 wrt the post nuclear apocalypse type world of blade runner. It's clear that some cataclysmic events have occurred prior to the story.
e.g. the necessity for synthetic animal vendors, the comment about not being able to afford a real snake, the luxury/necessity of people moving "off-world"
Also, in interviews and the making-of material, there is more exposition about the world of blade runner and it follows closely the ideas Dick's book about mass extinction due to radiation, environmental collapse etc.
A comic rendition of Blade Runner's LA shows the remains of certain areas as off limit, higly radioactive nuke craters. World War Terminus...something that took place some 10 years before as a kind of...well...Space War I or II caused mankind to really push the off world migration forward to not put itself towards extinction. Then again, this was just a comic.
They were stills I believe.
>I live in Colorado, we have surplus taxes from fucking weed.
We have plenty of street lighting on roads that are actually busy. There's no good reason to pollute secluded mountain skyways with a bunch of street lamps.
Broadway or Kipling at night has zero lighting, especially with these skinny medians that are nothing but a strip of concrete.
On older roads and less busy parts, there are few lights.
I don't want them in very rural areas, just in the watering holes between those forests at least.
Had to go to Avon for my job a few weeks back and driving home from work at night was awful in the town before you reached the Christmas lights at the center.
