Batty: Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave.
Watched The Final Cut.
An visual experience trapped in the verse of life that is so little. Dreams that concur. Questions that are easy...Answers complicated. 2 years from now I really hope we are in the Blade Runner kind of future...Just to see this movie is real life.
Deckard lost in his own conscious, with no choice in the matter has to track down replicants who have escaped.. As we get into the world more we see how these replicants are made...More Human than Humans...But still they can be figured out through Voight-Kampff machine...
But the most interesting characters in this movie isn't Deckard but Roy Batty...Who is lost, in search of his creator...Just wants his life to be more than what is destined for him. The scene between Roy and Dr. Eldon Tyrell is very significant in my opinion, that is the moment you you can see how Roy feels the disappointment, the lengths he had to go just to meet his maker and to get the answer which he never imagined was just to hard to handle.
Even the finale between Deckard and Roy is hard as it gets.
Blade Runner is beautifully set up, I mean just look at everything that is in this movie, every detail...Every room, frame, people...Just feels so perfect to watch. Even in todays world of CGI, you can't see a pure multi-layered science fiction like this...
The opening sequence itself is to die for, the visuals of the city on for within the reflection of eye...Just beautiful.
Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty gives one of the most memorable performances you can see...He is the bad guy but is he really? He is just stuck in his own sanctity, his survival in a world where they are meant to retire.
Sean Young as Rachael shows us the mystery that is created in making.
Gaff: You've done a man's job, sir. I guess you're through, huh?
[Gaff throws Deckard his gun]
Gaff: It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?
Harrison Ford plays the perfect Deckard slipped into his own abyss trying to uplift of the situation he is in.
I don't know how but Ridley Scott pulled two great iconique science fiction back to back. With Alien he showed how even atmosphere can be scary as shit and with Blade Runner he just pulled something out of his hat that even today it is like new.
Blade Runner is a masterpiece...and it has to be see every year till your last breath.
Batty: I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.
