Directed by: Ridley Scott
Starring: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young
I watched two really great movies back-to-back yesterday, this and Nineteen Eighty-Four. I’m gonna have to watch so many Italian horror movies to make up for this…
In the future, a company has made a bunch of humaniform robots, but they’re too good and also kinda murder-ey, so it’s illegal for them to be on Earth. When a group of them return to try and figure out a way to expand their four-year lifespan, a specialist is sent out to capture or kill them: a Blade Runner.
This is the most beautiful movie I’ve ever seen. Ridley Scott applies a film noir style that works perfectly with the futuristic cityscapes and creepy robot parlors… I obviously can’t explain it very well. As a human monster with only blackness in my heart, I just lack the faculties to describe true beauty. Instead, why don’t you just go ahead and watch Blade Runner yourself. You can consider it pre-gaming for Prometheus when it comes out, if you want, since the ads seem to be close to this than Alien.
