Blade Runner (Director’s Cut) (1982)

mov215603 You’re retarded if you don’t know what this kickass movie is about. Blade Runner is like the most famous movie ever with the epicness of a futuristic story directed by Ridley Scott. But for you guys who’ve been living in a cave the last decades this is what the movie plot is about:

In a cyberpunk vision of the future, man has developed the technology to create replicants, human clones used to serve in the colonies outside Earth but with fixed lifespans. In Los Angeles, 2019, Deckard is a Blade Runner, a cop who specialises in terminating replicants. Originally in retirement, he is forced to re-enter the force when six replicants escape from an offworld colony to Earth.

(yeah, I stole it).

It was ages ago I last saw this movie, and I don’t remember if I thought it was good or not. When watching it again the other day I recalled it was actually really good. Not just because of the cyberpunk environment (which is kickass) or just because of the nudity (which also was good) – but because you had both of those things together with decent acting and a soundtrack making you get that film noir feeling all over the place. I know there’s supposed to be a version of the movie with voice-overs and a more happy ending, but the Director’s Cut version was satisfying beyond my expectations.

One thing I like about Blade Runner is that it doesn’t take you for a stupid watcher. Every aspect of the “Blade Runner universe” isn’t explained in detail but are for you to discover as the movie evolves. All connections between people, what the various terms really mean, etc, are presented subtle by dialogue or events occuring throughout the whole watching experience. I like that. It makes you think.

As for the negative side I’d have to say the fighting scenes. They are not of greater quality (or quantity). Luckily; action is not one of the key points for the movie. I can deal with lousy fighting as long as the story is intriguing and you give me that cyberpunk environment.

I love it. You gotta see it if you haven’t. And if you have, then watch it again.
