Prequels and Sequels?!?! Oh My! I'm not sold on a prequel but I'm sure I could be convinced.

I have to ashamedly admit that I've never even seen Blade Runner. So I couldn't say one way or the other if I'd like a sequel or a prequel. I think I need to get around to watching that. Maybe I'll check Netflix.

Dude - I'm not even going to look for Memento until you've watched Blade Runner

lol Blackmailing me? I think Memento still trumps Blade Runner.

But, it's already in my Instant Queue on Netflix. So I can watch it anytime I want. I just keep forgetting to get around to it.

WOAH!!! Look who rolled out of bed bright and early today. I say you should watch it this weekend and come back with a full report on Monday. That's your homework.

lol No rolling out of bed bright and early. I don't o that. Just haven't been to bed yet. Heading there now.

Hmm homework huh? haha I think I can manage that.

I dunno about a sequel but a prequel would be very nice as it would give add to this deep narrative greatly.

I think for nostalgia purposes, people would absolutely flip over either/or. If the rumor holds true that Nolan will direct it (which I seriously doubt), they'd flip even more.
