Blade Runner ★★★★

"All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain", Roy Batty.

Blade Runner is one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time and over the years I have begun to appreciate it more. I first saw it at my grandparent's house, thinking it was going to be like Star Wars and oh how wrong I was.

This film has aged well in terms of its visuals and production design which are still impressive today. Much of the designs and cityscape are the inspiration for many other Cyberpunk films that I enjoy and I can appreciate this film on that alone. Some of the scenes just have gorgeous cinematography and are so eye droppingly beautiful! The score by Vangelis is totally eargasmic and is a joy to listen to as the film progresses. The story is interesting as the film includes some great philosophical themes of what it means to be human and the value of life.

I have just never really been able to fully invest myself in the story and characters. I'm interested enough to see it through whenever I watch it but it's just not really one of my favourite films and isn't for me in some ways. It's definitely a film that requires multiple viewings to appreciate and I myself am going to watch it again later today. If you're a die-hard film buff, it's definitely worth a see.
