Blade Runner (Ridley Scott – 1982) A

I forgot how much of a noir Blade Runner is. Probably why my 14 year old did not like it as much as i hoped he would. It is not an action-packed sci-fi romp but proceeds deliberately as Deckard hunts down several escaped replicants – engineered humans/cyborgs sort of. Why hunt them? That’s the moral center of the movie. They mostly just want to live their life and be part of society after all. It’s so much more of a detective movie set in a sci-fi world of replicants, holograms and oppressive rainy gloominess. It still is a film with amazing art direction, it was ahead of its time and still is absolutely relevant and wonderful to watch.
