Where the heck were you watching the film? Osaka?
The subtext is that Shaw is a lone female in a misogynist spaceship society. She can't do what she wants, can't get the healthcare she needs, and the medpod can't help her either.
Am I alone in seeing resemblances between the medpod shape and the alien's head? Something about the machine reminds me of the original Giger drawing.
Ridley Scott's redo of Blade Runner out in 2013? Probably not:
"Harrison Ford may take a small role in Ridley Scott's forthcoming Blade Runner sequel, according to the director.
In an interview with the Independent, Scott said he hoped Ford would take a guest role in the planned project. "I don't think it'll be Harry [starring]," he said. "But I've got to have him in it somewhere. That'd be amusing."
It emerged earlier this year that Ford was in talks for the new Blade Runner film, which has since been revealed as a sequel with a female protagonist at its core. The actor, now 69, played the lead role of replicant hunter Rick Deckard in Scott's classic 1982 future noir. Scott's involvement was revealed in March last year and followed his decision to return to science fiction film-making after three decades with Prometheus, a film "set in the same universe" as 1979 futuristic horror Alien."
