Rutger Hauer was in The Hitcher as well. A lovely and violent film.

Should have called the route Mr Bean instead!

Are you kidding? The only hint less subtle than the ones given would be if Rachael said "jeezus f---in' christ Deckard, you can be such a replic'unt sometimes!!" (clearly they would have had to rewrite the script a bit to make Rachael a bogan)

I liked the original cut. They're both going to die soon, but they get the hell out of the shithole city and drive north (heading for Smith or Squamish)......and the crap weather finally clears up, so they'll get some climbing in......perfect ending!

Well Simon if you must persist , this time it has worked ! We are considering down grading this route so as to be in keeping with the grades of its near companions , ie "Yesterday's Groove " for example .

And yes we are getting older , and maybe we should be grading our routes a bit easier , come on up for a repeat .

And when i visit later in the year im expecting coffee and cake .

I'm very much looking forward to visiting the Blueys and repeating some of these routes in the Grose. They look and sound excellent. Unfortunately it looks like I will be a bit preoccuped with the cafe over the next few months. Should be able to promise you coffee and cake when you visit down here though. You could bring Shaz down too given she is hassling me on this thread about the cafe also.

PS. Bring your bike

@mikl - Ok, sounds like a plan. I try it upon my return from Europe sometimes in April. And if it's all too hard, is a retreat to the starting ledge possible?

I've just booked both versions through Quikflix. I can't remember anything about it and clearly need a refresher.

WAAAAAAAY OT, but I recommend QUikflix to anyone with a penchant for movies. You just pick off a list of movies, and build a big list, and they send out a couple at a time. We're on the program and have had some beauties come through.

I watched the hitcher while hitching in the states. glad Rutger was the hitcher rather than it being a Milat movie.

And hasn't anyone ever dreamed of "riding sun beams of Orion "or is that just an 80's thing ?

Yeah, clearly the androids are taking a fair bit of acid out there!

I actually reckon that Blade Runner is the best sci fi flick ever made......maybe because so many other sci fi's are shit. Anyone got some other contenders?

Blade Runner's good.

I'm not sure I'd do a climb named after a guy who said "Wake up! Time to die."

Sci Fi films were good until Star Wars turned them all into space fantasy (westerns).

THX1138
Logan's Run
The Time Machine (old classic)
The Fifth Element

Chuck's big 3, The Omega Man, Soylent Green, Planet of the Apes (only 1)

and depending what you let in Brazil (my fave film of all time)

Terminator 1, Aliens 1 (strictly a monster flick).

Metropolis. Fritz Lang made it all possible.

"Heezo Christo, makes the ganglia tweetch!!". Classic. I used to work with a guy in the States who had transferred the soundtrack to a cassette and used it as background noise while working.
