362: Blade Runner
Title text: Blade Runner: classic, but incredibly slow.
Cueball is watching a DVD he got for Christmas (the comic is set on Boxing day). His friend seems intent to ruin it for him.
Blade Runner, a science fiction movie featuring Harrison Ford. One of the principal characters is played by Daryl Hannah. Hannah later became known for acting in light hearted Rom-com films, such as "Splash" (in which she is a mermaid) similar to the type of films that the Olsen twins are known for, and Hannah does look similar to the Olsens. Full House is a TV series and New York Minute is a romantic film featuring the Olsens. Hannah's character in Blade Runner (a homicidal sex robot) is a marked departure from this type of role. Cueball will now probably watch the rest of the movie thinking about Olsen movies.
The title text is a common comment on the film. It is not paced like most Sci-fi movies.
- Cueball: What DVD is this?
- Friend: Blade Runner. I got it for Christmas.
- Cueball: The one with Harrison Ford, right? And the Olsen twins?
- Friend: Ye- What? Olsen twins? No, this is the 80's sci-fi classic!
- Cueball: Huh. I didn't know the Olsen twins even did sci-fi.
- Friend: ... they don't.
- Cueball: So is Ashely the replicant, or is Mary-Kate? I can never tell them apart.
- Friend: Neither! They're not in this movie!
- Cueball: Then who is?
- Friend: Daryl Hannah!
- Cueball: I liked her in Full House.
- Friend: I hate you.
- Cueball: Man, this movie is just a New York Minute rip-off.
