I have no idea why people list bladerunner. Saw original, in 82 snoozer, then the directors cut came out, went to hollywood to watch that, because certainly it had to be better.... Ummmmm Nope. The only thing I can think of is that there is another movie out there called bladerunner that is this classic tale.... I just keep seeing the bad one.
You are clearly a terrorist!
I like it for two reasons.
The quest of the replicants for what is essentialy their humanity, and Rutger Hauer. His tears in rain impromptu line was one of the finest pieces of acting I’ve ever seen in my life.
It isn’t an action heavy movie, I suppose it isn’t for everyone, but not all science fiction is.
This one is my favorite.
Ditto. To this day I don't know why people claim this is a "sci-fi classic". It seemed like an incoherent mess with Harrison Ford to me. They claimed the "Director's Cut" was better because it removed the "unnecessary voiceover", but that made the movie even MORE incoherent. I've tried to watch it twice now and found the movie boring and annoying.
Another recent addition to my "why the hell did this get such rave reviews" in 2006's "Children of Men". For a sci-fi story, I give it a 2/10. Interesting premise, horribly executed.
My sentiments exactly...a real snoozefest.
Recent movies...I liked Battle Los Angeles even though it had a lot of flaws. Hated Prometheus. Being a hard SF nut and also being very picky I really can't remember many outstanding SF films. Alien was great, but more of a horror film than SF.
