Movie: Blade Runner

A few weeks ago I watched Blade Runner .  A friend at work told me it was a great movie, and I only ever remembered small parts of the movie.  It turns out I didn’t see many clips at all, but it was an OK movie.  I think I was a bit spoiled to have watched all of today’s sci-fi movies, instead of this movie in its original release, but I would have been pretty young then.  Regardless, I feel it is a good movie to at least claimed to have watched, now I can say I did.  I remembered that A.I. Artificial Intelligence is supposed to be a more modern representation of the same Philip K. Dick book, “ Do Androids dream of electric sheep? “, but I think Blade Runner did a better job (although I have yet to read the book, but its on my list).  I think it was neat to see Harrison Ford in this type of role, which was slightly different from the Indiana Jones and Star Wars series at the same time.  I didn’t like the character the Rutger Hauer (Roy Batty) played, but I did like Sean Young (Rachael) and Daryl Hannah (Pris).  Overall a good movie, but I think its due for a modernized update or re-visioning. Deep Thought: I wonder how much of the range of human emotions we can synthesize?  Today they mostly appear to be chemical reactions inside our body… Likes: The back stories of the replicants (also a great movie idea), the name Blade Runner, 80′s movies (this on had a lot of smoking…) Dislikes: other movies ripping off scenes (Seems like some of the modernized Star Wars and The Fifth Element are culprits), Dark and quiet movies (This time frame seems to be the age of art over movie) I’ll give it a 5/10, but just because it was soo historical and a great vision of a sci-fi movie.
