Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★½

Still probably the prettiest movie of all time, and with the score added too? God.

I may have been a little harsh on Blade Runner since the first time I saw it. I felt as if a lot of the philosophical questions were more forced upon it by sci-fi diehards than the film actually bringing up any important discussions itself. On this viewing, I realized the material IS there, just kind of quiet... and also still kind of vague. This leads to boredom at places, as there’s not a ton to pick apart, and the last few scenes just don’t do much for me (the speech is fine, though). 

At the very least though, it leads to an entire genre having a defined aesthetic, and god is it a good one. For that alone, I can’t ignore the importance of this film.
