Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★★

Will definitely rewatch again this year! My god, that was truly one of the best sci-fi films ever. It’s very slow-paced, but its sound mixing, visuals, and dialogue make for an incredibly enthralling atmosphere which ensures that Blade Runner is never boring. I love slow-paced engaging films so much. 

I knew it was deserving of its status as a classic after that opening scene, and the characters were really interesting. The replicants bring up interesting ideas too, and the film does not hold your hand through its complex aspects. Even by today’s standards, the future’s (or the past) detailed depiction is impressive. 

Thrillingly directed and visually striking, Blade Runner is a smart and alluring classic that benefits greatly from its massively influential production design and subtle performances from its two leads.
