Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★★★

One of my favorite immersive movies. The densely layered mise en scene makes me want to crawl through the screen whenever I catch this in a theater. Such a staggeringly realized world with practical effects that still look better than any of those I, Robots or Max Mans or sci-fi troglodytes downloaded onto the screen. Upon this particular viewing, I noticed two glass cage bikini dancers wearing hockey masks and some cyberpunk toddlers waddling around and yammering like mixed up aliens.

Also, did the replicants have those weird glowing raccoon eyes in the other cuts? Those reflective stares seem a little TOO obvious, like those digitally added demon faces in the new version of The Exorcist. I like some subtlety to my robosapiens. Thanks, Sir Ridley!

Lots of tech noir cyberpunk dystopian futures have ripped off Blade Runner, but none compare to demented genius that is SNATCHER.

Let's face it. If there was no Blade Runner, there would be no SNATCHER. A true tragedy worthy of a million robot tears.

Someone just needs to wake the fuck up and make a Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch movie now.
