Blade Runner (1982)

A blade runner must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator. (IMDb)
The slow pace is welcome when we’re cruising through the moody city setting accompanied by that unnerving synth soundtrack, but much less so when it comes to the dry plot in between (especially that “romantic” aside cringe-worthy both for its cheese and rape-y vibes). The fantastic rooftop scene that switches up the typical bad vs. good climax (“All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain”), along with the tantalizing scene that follows make for a stellar ending, however.
7/10 (Good)

  1. While this is one of my all time favorite films, I can’t help but agree with you that the romantic chemistry is incredibly awkward and stale, but I also agree that the finale is beyond riveting. I’ve seen this movie countless times, and I get the chills after every viewing!
