Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★★★

The staple dystopian sci-fi flick, rife with commentaries and themes about what it is to be human. I think a real selling point for me in Blade Runner is the mood and atmosphere. The constant rain, smog and sprawling city vistas -- the lazy haze of cigarette smoke in close-quarter scenes and the overall tone of this film really strikes a chord with me. Harrison Ford gives a great performance but Rutger Hauer really shines here -- his presence on screen brings the film to a new tier of greatness.

Just a fantastic film, brimming with a beautiful noir/science fiction blended style and heavy in substance.

Never gets old, no matter how many times I re-watch.
