Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies of all time.
This is a small tribute to one of the characters, the replicant Rachael, who finds out who or what she really is practically out of nowhere. 165 more words

Science fiction this weekend with Philip K. Dick’s revered novel from 1968 – Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? A prolific sci-fi genius, the American author (who died in 1982) didn’t find much success during his lifetime, but since his novels began being adapted into Hollywood films, he’s become quite the posthumous legend. 670 more words

銀翼殺手2049

好萊塢大導演Ridley Scott在1982年拍了一部科幻經典電影Blade Runner(銀翼殺手),據說看過此片才有資格宣稱你是科幻迷

過去這部老片描述一群不論在智能或體能均遠優於人類的複製人想追求屬於他們的幸福,而主角(Harrison Ford)的工作就是奉命去獵殺這群有“使用年限”的複製人

這樣的題材當然衍生出許多挑戰當下許多人本哲學及價值觀,例如:複製人是人嗎?可以跟人類談戀愛嗎?人類存在的價值是否隨著更高等的生物出現而崩壞?
這部戲事隔35年後推出了續集並搬上大銀幕,雖然主角改為大帥哥Ryan Gosling,但Harrison爺爺也是有出來露露相(雖然不知道戲份有多少?),劇中也加入了Robin Wright參演(紙牌屋及阿甘正傳的女主角)!相信是部值得期待的好片

ps: 21世紀年來生物科技及資訊科技發展迅速,越來越多人開始討論起衝擊人類物種的相關議題,例如:過去認為每個人都有他存在的價值,因為自我的感知是不容取代;但是當現代科技漸漸可證明人類的思考、感知、情緒都可以透過演算法去解釋或控制(這不是科幻小說,簡單說這就是人工智慧的精華),未來發展的極致可能就是更聰明且更強壯的複製人或機器(或稱為神人),試問我們這種相對低階的物種存在的價值在哪?
