New Blades for Old

As a prelude to watching Blade Runner 2049, last night we watched the original's final cut on Amazon. Hay noticed a necessary continuity error; just prior to making a run for it, Zhora is seen pulling on a pair of boots with killer heels, yet when she's finally shot and falls over, the heels have mysteriously disappeared and the boots are flat. Now were the heels jettisoned automatically by the boots to enable Zhora to run, or was it a necessity so she could run?

I've always wondered what Rick Deckard's job was that enabled him to immediately take up becoming a Blade Runner again. I mean you can't normally just drop your job immediately and he obviously had some occupation in order to keep body and soul together after retiring from being a Blade Runner. I've lived over 30 years thinking Harrison For's character was called Dekker.

It's strange how the female replicants have exotic names, whereas the males have normal, boring ones.

We're looking forward to seeing Blade Runner 2049, especially given the reviews.
