Plus: covers BR2049 in addition to the theatrical, directors, and final cuts of the original. Very broad collection of essays that get into some areas beyond the basics you'd find in other BR books.

Minus: There was much overlap in essays that became boring. Each writer had their own topic, but the same comments and observations were often made.

“after hearing the sounds of emptiness in their building, Iran decides to program her Penfield Mood Organ to make her feel depressed six hours a day, twice a month, followed by a more uplifting mood setting. She’s not crazy, as some readers might conclude. Rick has heard it too and understands what it portends. Silence is emblematic of death, of loss beyond measure, of the daily encroachment of human extinction. But for Rick, the answer is to use the Mood Organ to feel better, not worse. As earlier noted, the Penfield Mood Organ is a kind of drug that allows users to escape feelings of sorrow and pain. But it’s for this very reason that Iran needs to feel depressed. Depression is the only authentic response to the fact of a dying world that they (the human race) helped create. Everything else is just escapism.” 0 likes
“She decries the boiling alive of a lobster as “depraved.” In our world, such base depravity is commonplace and considered culturally acceptable by all but a minority. Androids, thus, presents an interesting, if tragic observation. The near annihilation of animal life has finally gotten people to value animals for who they are – not as gratification for taste buds, or as fashion items, decorations, or entertainment – but as living, feeling creatures with their own intrinsic worth. Schweitzer predicted “The time will come when public opinion will no longer tolerate amusements based on the mistreatment and killing of animals. The time will come, but when? When will we reach the point that hunting, the pleasure in killing animals for sport, will be regarded as a mental aberration?” 0 likes
