    "I live abroad and wanted to find the best resource for watching American TV while I'm out of the country for a while. I've found Hulu to be my go-to steaming platform for all my favorite American TV shows. The plans are fairly priced and you can even upgrade to a no-commercials plan, which I have and love. It's well worth the extra money. I get to enjoy all my favorite shows on-demand with no issues so far. I highly recommend Hulu to everyone."

      "The 1982 Ridley Scott Blade Runner was a staple in my household growing up. For it's time it was an amazing piece of cinematic story telling and visually stunning. Harrison Ford is well cast as Dekkard (the main character) and in my opinion this movie is timeless. I would recommend purchasing this and having a family movie night."

      "Blade runner is one of the best by Phillip K. Dick but I must disagree it is the best. In my opinion Total Recall is better. However, it is totally personal choice. You are neither right or wrong. I would love to watch the remake of the Blade runner myself."

      "I'm a big PK Dick fan, but I saw this adaptation long before I got into his work. I watched it as just a movie, granting it a lot more leeway to be simply an enjoyable film. That said, now that I've read a lot of Dick's work, this movie isn't the greatest. It isn't a failure by any means, but the description tells the truth when it states that it is "loosely based" on the story. This wouldn't be where I would start if I was looking for films based on Dick's work."

      "I really loved watching Total Recall. The action and plot were great. I love Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone was really great in it, too. But I don't think it's the best adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story since it is only loosely based on the story. I thought Blade Runner was actually a better adaptation than Total Recall was."

      "If you read the book, see the movie. If you saw the movie, read the book. I imagine most sci-fi fans have done both. I think Philip K. Dick is probably the most prolific novel to movie screen around. His stories are both entertaining and they make you think."

      "Thrilling is a stretch for this abomination. There was no thrilling at all here. I haven't been this bored since the Notebook. A sad sad excuse of a film. Alanis Morrisette is in it tthough so that's a plus, ironically, don't ya think?"

      "I saw the original on HBO years ago, and liked it enough that I recently bought the DVD with the director's cut. I'm not sure what the differences are, but the director's cut does feel leaner and tighter."
