Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★★

"It's too bad she won't live, but then again, who does?"

I wish I had the ability to not rate this film, but apparently once you've rated something in a previous watch you can't opt out of rating it again.

I liked this film much more than I did the last time I watched it, but that's not saying much. I still hated it for the same reasons I hated it the last time. It still felt excruciatingly slow. I still don't feel comfortable with Deckard and Rachel's love scene (or as it was sometimes called on set, their hate scene).

That being said, I still love it for the reasons I loved it the last time. I love the philosophy of it and what it says about the nature of our humanity. I love Roy's character, his incredible depth and his memorable death. The music remains as one of my favorite scores of all time.

I guess I would called it a mixed bag. I still prefer 2049.
