Beauty vs Beast: Dreaming of Electric Sheep

Jason from MNPP here... or am I? Is this me? Am I here? So many existential questions here on the eve of the release of Blade Runner 2049 this weekend and all I have is a "Beauty vs Beast" poll to face them down with. Y'all gotta help me suss it out! Are we a Deckard (Harrison Ford) or are we a Pris (Daryl Hannah)? And is this the version of life with the voiceover and the unicorns or isn't it? I am so confused...

PREVIOUSLY Last week we wished David Lynch's Eraserhead a happy 40th birthday, and in a delightfully close contest you came down on the side of the pulsating little baby pod thing - a testament to a special effect that Lynch himself steadfastly refuses to label as such, I'd say. Said Nick T:

"Baby, because I asked my dad if he resonated with Henry's parental struggles raising me and he gave me a look that said I was still making him struggle."

A friend and I watched the director's cut on Saturday night to prepare for next weekend.

Pris is admittedly a way cooler character, but early-80's Harrison Ford is, umm, hard to say no to, so he gets my vote.

[of course, zhora is the true beauty, even if she can't afford a real snake]

Daryl Hannah showed such promise (I'd argue that she has, unfortunately, never bettered this performance - admittedly, a high bar was set)...
