James Healey’s review published on Letterboxd:
Oh Blade Runner, I remember the first time I watched you. I was 16, and I watched a low quality rip online and shut you off half way through. What the fuck was wrong with me. It's ok I guess, we all do a lot of stupid shit we're not proud of when we're younger. Thankfully I decided to watch it again a year later and really liked. Fast forward to now. This is my fourth watch of Blade Runner, and I swear to god this film gets better and better each time I watch it.
There are so many groundbreaking things about Blade Runner. For starters, without Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell and Deus Ex probably wouldn't exist. The CGI/sfx in Blade Runner are still better looking than most in modern films. I don't even know how that's possible. Blade Runner is now over 30 years old now, and most films can't even come close to how amazing this looks(aside from cheesy computer effects that plagues 80's sci fi films). Now all that beautiful CGI would be for nothing if Blade Runner didn't have some of the greatest cinematography of all time. Every shot is gorgeous, and even rivals 2001 sometimes in my opinion.
I feel like one thing that people forget to mention when disusing Blade Runner is how great the score is. It just sounds so wonderful, and it's a damn shame more people(myself included) don't give as much attention as we should. And lastly I mus not forget the acting and writing. All the performances are great(I swear Harrison Ford is the king of the 80's) and the dialogue/story is very well written. The best part about the story was that GOAT tier ending in the Final Cut.
Also dat Coca Cola product placement.
