The Filmosophers movie talk

It's set up to be a very intriguing show. Regular listeners have heard us mention Blade Runner posterMark Cole and his awesome home theater several times. Chris's long time friend and my great neighbor has a home theater system that, among other things includes speakers he has made that have literally jingled my bells while experiencing incredible films like Mad Max: Fury Road (Filmosopher's pick for Best Picture, 2015) on his system. Last week he turned us onto the 4K restoration of Blade Runner: The Final Cut on Blu-ray. This version makes fantastically clear that Blade Runner is one of the greatest films ever made (including whatever version you see, IMO. Fellow B. R. aficionado Ted Burghoff and myself always enjoyed the original release that included narration by star Harrison Ford who didn't want to do it). Spearheaded by the great Director Ridley Scott, Blade Runner is brilliant filmmaking on every level, including an electronic audio/ music soundtrack by Vangelis that was holographically experienced on Mark's 4K Dolby Atmos Blu Ray. We're happy he's agreed to join us to discuss this, his system and more.
Also very intriguing: Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Noah, Pi) has made a polarizing new film titled "mother!" "Critics Consensus: There's no denying that mother! is the thought-provoking product of a singularly ambitious artistic vision, though it may be too unwieldy for mainstream tastes. - RT. Brother Chris has experienced it and wrote: "I will be discussing how enthralled I was with this moviegoing experience." This is exciting.

We look forward to hearing this and more on the Filmosophers with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy on the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

If only you could see what I have seen with your eyes. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate... All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain. - Roy Batty, Blade Runner
