New technology ruining cinema experience claims Ridley Scott

  • 3 September 2007

Director Ridley Scott has said that the explosion of new media and technology means people are not experiencing great film the way it is intended.

The British Oscar-winner made the comments as he launched a remastered version of his sci-fi classic Blade Runner – some 25 years after the original was released.

He said film should be experienced on the big screen with good quality sound.

“I’m sure we’re on a losing wicket, but we’re fighting technology. While it has been wonderful in many aspects, it also has some big downsides,” he said.

Scott, who considers Blade Runner his most accomplished movie, was in Venice to promote the Final Cut. He said another science fiction film is in his sights.

“I am continuously looking for that so it anyone has got a science fiction script in their briefcase, give it to me.”
