Kim­mel takes a dig at crit­ics

New Straits Times - - World -

it’s vis­ually splen­did.

The preview opens with Jared Leto’s char­ac­ter over­see­ing the gooey birth of a repli­cant.

“Ev­ery civ­i­liza­tion was built off the back of a dis­pos­able work­force,” he says, start­ing to clue us in as to what we’re watch­ing.

Gosling’s char­ac­ter, the blade run­ner K, moves through a hazy city where even the neon ap­pears to be masked in shadow.

At the trailer’s cli­max, K comes face to face with Rick Deckard (Har­ri­son Ford, step­ping back into his role from the orig­i­nal).

“I did your job once,” Deckard says, nudg­ing au­di­ences into re­mem­ber­ing the movie re­leased 35 years ago. “I was good at it.”

They stare each other down be­fore Deckard asks K what he wants.

“I want to ask you some ques­tions,” K says.

He never gets around to ask­ing them, of course.

AP LOS AN­GE­LES: Jimmy Kim­mel zinged his crit­ics as he re­turned to late-night tele­vi­sion and re­sumed ar­gu­ing that Amer­i­cans de­serve the level of healthcare iven his in­fant son.

Back on ABC’s Jimmy Kim­mel Live on Mon­ab­baby day af­ter a week’s sence, he said Billy was re­cov­er­ing well from opena heart surgery for birth de­fect and thanked well­wish­ers.

Then he charged back into the fraught topic.

“I made an emo­tional speech that was seen by mil­lions, and as a re­sult of my pow­er­ful words on that night, Repub­li­cans in Congress had sec­ond thoughts about re­peal­ing and re­plac­ing of the Af­ford­able Care Act,” he joked.

“I saved health in­surance in the United States! What’s that? I didn’t save it? They voted against it any­way?”

The House ap­proved the Amer­i­can Health Care Act last week. He dis­missed those who la­belled him an elit­ist. As a young­ster, his fam­ily bought pow­dered milk be­cause they couldn’t af­ford fresh, he said, and pre­tended to re­pent for his pre­vi­ous com­ments.

“I’d like to apol­o­gise for say­ing chil­dren in Amer­ica should have healthcare. It was in­sen­si­tive, it was of­fen­sive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to for­give me.” AP
