  • Today, Blade Runner works better than ever: Scott's version not only has more dramatic integrity, but its visual aesthetic and futuristic vision are more in sync with today's movie-goers. [11 Sept 1992] show more

  • What remains is a great Vangelis score, astonishing production design, Hauer's career role -- and a movie that deserves its cult reputation despite an unloving heart. [11 Sept 1992] show more

  • Most important, several elements -- the film's tough, new ending; a sly, fleeting dissolve of a unicorn, not in the original; and a brilliant, trompe d'oeil flicker of life in a shot of a still photograph -- bring Deckard's existential dilemma into focus. [11 Sept 1992] show more

    Today is 6-27-12. I Just finished one of my all time science fiction loves, Blade Runner. This is probably the 30th time I\'ve watched Blade Runner since the first time I was amazed by it in the theater in 1982. The recurring theme in Blade Runner is the obsessive desire to grab hold of one\'s memories to make sure they are real... thus proving your grasp on reality. What more are we than the sum total of the memories in our minds that drives us forward, and backward, in life. To imagine a time in a world where our memories could be manufactured by The All Powerful Corporation… and people eventually begin to question if the very thoughts in their heads are real, or manufactured? Wow. I have always thought of Blade Runner as a very deep movie. The Blade Runner mythology… Super human Replicants… discovery of their limited life span… the need to know if their memories are real, or created in a lab… and how eventually everyone in the movie could be suspected of being unreal. What a movie! Every science fiction fan knows what Blade Runner is about. This fan has always thought Blade Runner was the perfect movie... in 19
