What is the SOTSG opinion on Blade Runner?

Quality flick, though Ridley's Director's Cut when it basically says Deckard is a Replicant (which ruins the whole point of the film, isn't what Ford thought the character should be, and obviously wasn't the original intent since the unicorn dream was footage Scott took from another film he did after Blade Runner). I haven't seen all 30 million different cuts (most have been lost like tears in the rain) but if there's one that's basically the director's cut that leaves out the "Deckard is a secret Replicant" twist but also leaves out the noir Ford voiceover parts, that's the one to watch.

I've got a rewatch on my to-do list for next week. Thought it would be free on prime but it's $3.99. I'll check Netflix, but there's a 0.1% chance they have a movie that I'd want to watch on there.

To keep this from being my least useful post ever, I remember that I enjoyed this film when I saw it. Felt that the cinematography was gorgeous but the story is slow at times.

Yeah the remastered visual is probably the most beautiful movie/atmosphere/etc. I've ever seen /bacon

Ridley may not always do the best stories *cough*RobinHood;Prometheus;everythingI'veheardaboutAlienCovenant*cough* but the dude makes immersive, well--realized settings and style. Alien, Gladiator, Blade Runner, Kingdom of Heaven, Black Hawk Down, The Duellists, all feel real for lack of better description by me.

Cinematography! He's probably the best cinematographer...ever?

Roger Deakins would like a word (he's literally the only cinematographer I know by name). I am sure Scott has certain guys he typical works with. I think that might be how his brother got his start (RIP).

Anyway, I thought it was good to very good. Definitely kept my attention. WORTHY of the buzz! Probably would never watch again, as it's not the kind of film that's rewatchable. But would rec.


I have seen this film also. I probably reviewed it here. I thought it was plodding.


You did in fact preview it.

I perused [/ctz] this today. Not surprisingly Balls is wrong. This was a really good flick. Only thing I didn't like was Keaton's accent. He did a good job with the "aww" sounds, and even nailed "Mundy" at one point. But he didn't drop a single R in the whole damn movie. Do the accent or don't, Batman. None of this half ass shit.

I really can't believe how much kid-fucking these priests got away with. How does Catholicism even still exist? If 6% of the people in your office were getting blown by 12 year olds, do you think the company would survive?

To no one's surprise probably, Blade Runner is one of my favorites. Checks all the boxes for me. Sci-fi/fantasy, a little mystery (around whether Dr Jones is a replicant or not), complete confusion on what you're even watching the first time you see it.

Fun fact I learned this weekend: Deakins is the cinematographer on Blade Runner 2049!
