Blade Runner ★★★★★

"I've... seen things, you people wouldn't believe..."

The atmosphere and art direction of this movie, along with the special effects are simply mind blowing for the time it came out, but this movie is also so much more than that even. On the surface it's a cyberpunk noir thriller centered around Harrison Ford's character hunting down and exterminating a dangerous, humanlike threat that can hide in plain sight, but at its core it's a deeply poignant, thought-provoking story centered around the themes of mortality and what it means to be human. Vangelis' score and Rutger Hauer's performance give this movie a soul that resonates so much more than any other science fiction movie I can think of. I can't recommend this one enough.
