doka spotted at the movies

Post by axeman »

just been to see the new jason bourne film he rides in a blue doka in the opening scenes. so dokas feature in this film and the american version of the girl with the dragon tatoo made a few years ago, and blade runner many years ago, can any one else think of these extras used in films?

Blade runner? Ooh where? One of my favourites. Heavily modified I imagine?

IIRC in one of the Chinatown street scenes. Not modified. I think whoever put it in was thinking either it 'looks futuristic' and folk won't notice it's from 1982, or, they knew VW's build quality so though it entirely feasible a T3 would still be around in 2019. Possibly they were right either way !

Don't expect to see this T25 in Eddie the Eagle, though it's on the cover, it's not in the film! In the film its a f.o.r.d-or-vauxhall ?!

^^^ and they reversed the interior shots in Dredd to make it appear LHD, presumably for the 'merkun market :roll:

Been watching 'Halt and Catch Fire' on Amazon Prime. Anyone who remembers MS DOS will enjoy it and may even know what 'HCF' command did? Anyway, it's like MadMen but with computers. The lead Engineer-Hardware guy comes to his senses and buys a new Vanagon in 1984.

Men’s ‘Bulldog’ Moisturiser advert (yeah, beyond me too) on the box at the moment. Saves it’s street cred by including a T25!Image
