Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★★

This movie is stunning. It's cinematography was way ahead of its time, the score and noire tones were mesmerizing. The characters were interesting and the themes are complex, due to Ridley Scott's exceptional direction (I watched the Final Cut version). However, with all of those amazing qualities, the film is a bit too pretentious for its own good at times. The movie is written lazily and there is a lot of filler scenes, making the pacing as slow as it is. The movie gets lost within itself, due to its complex thematic structure. Does it shoot itself in the foot a bit? I think so, but it's still extraordinary. Just was ahead of it's time. 8.2/10
