Finally a Ridley Scott movie that other people think is boring but I know is Very Fun instead of the other way around (Blade Runner puts me to sleep but this energized me). Love the fruity relationship between Patrizia and Pina. Would watch Gaga in anything at this point, she truly understands the assignment. Jared Leto should always be in prosthetics.
Deaf superhero!!!!!!! 🙌
Ok I need all the hearing people watching to understand that you can't just speak and a deaf person will understand, you have to face them. And you have to face a person when they sign. That was the least realistic part of the film (forget the alien gods). Also, all the hearing people should have signed more. But! Lauren is amazing and didnt have to speak and her ASL wasn't dumbed down at all and I love that.
My undying love for this film is proof that underneath this broken and cynical shell dwells a sappy romantic.
This film was formative for me. I'll never forget being 14 years old and watching it with the volume low under my blanket in the middle of the night like I was breaking a rule. I was still scared then, but in my mind I was Cay, cowboy shirts and all.
