2nd time I've ever seen it. Don't get me wrong, it's not awful and I do understand it but it's just so boring! It's such a shame cause I really want to like it but unfortunately life doesn't work that way!
If you want to read my rant continue, if not just ignore me

[Show spoiler]Not that one has to grow up with a film to appreciate it, I love Star Wars from '77 and I'm 26 but maybe it's a part of why I'm not a fan of Blade Runner. The visuals are alright but more so it could be down to the fact that so many older films had long stretches of dialogue where not much happens. It slowly builds up drama and then there's a bit of action at the end as a climax.
Don't remind me of that bit where he's zooming into that photograph. Jesus that could've been cut down by half and still have the same outcome. Felt like I was waiting for a kettle to boil.

I'm not going to start comparing it to an action film like Fast and the Furious or a fantasy filled opera like Star Wars because it's not trying to be anything like those.
It's a sci-fi noir film that achieves exactly what it wants so no disrespect there. I appreciate it for what it's done for film (and Battlestar Galactica!) but as far as the actual story goes first and foremost, the characters are all dull.

They are neither likeable nor dislikable. They just exist. I couldn't care less what happened to any of them and half the time couldn't make out what they were even saying (and in more than one way) such as their volume, accents and I think half the time it didn't even matter what they were saying because they were just off in their own little world talking nonsense. Maybe it's cause I was getting bored after an hour or maybe I should've just put subtitles on.


Nothing wrong with Harrison's acting but Deckard on the other hand was just so simple. Honestly I don't see why the police force needed him. Sounds like all they needed was his machine and some questions. It's not like he was physically special enough to hunt the Replicants over any other Blader Runner/Police Officer. Half the time he either got lost, missed his shot or got beaten up. Sure, it wouldn't be realistic or entertaining if he just caught the baddies and won without a scratch but come on.
Then he forces Rachel to kiss him. That was the moment I was like "nut, you're just a dick really!"

I do like an ambiguious ending though so I praise that.

Don't worry, mate Blade Runner isn't for everyone. It's an acquired taste to some and just appreciated by some others. To me it's probably my favourite film, but I know it has flaws. The noir elements don't quite work and the romance is a non-starter. Although Deckard getting bettered is a classic noir staple. Those guys just got hammered by fists and liquor and fell in and out of the story. They weren't always active participants. And if you're not in the right frame of mind the oppressive atmosphere can wipe you out pretty quickly.

Blade Runner has always been an art-house sci-fi noir, and that's going to appeal to a small demographic at the best of times.

If you can watch the Dangerous Days documentary and re-visit the film at a later date.

As far as I can find, non of these are on bluray in the UK.


This is the image of the american release. The UK Tartan DVD release also comes with La Constellation Jodorowsky (1994) documentary and the CD soundtracks for El Topo and The Holy Mountain.

Delivered by Yodel.

We weren't in. Amazingly, they not only showed initiative in leaving it somewhere sensible/safe, but it was also in one piece! I'm astounded.

An enjoyable thriller from Mike Figgis, with an early role for Kristen Stewart. Dennis Quaid is always decent too.

I have the whole trilogy on Blu Ray however only the first film is uncut. Both Hatchet 2 & 3 are cut so I kept all of the DVDs and put them into the Blu Ray cases.

Watched The Sea Devils

Quite a good serial, I've had it on the shelf for a few years and only watched it now. Not as good as Doctor Who and the Silurians but still worth a watch, prepare to get a headache though...that music!

SBtB on its own for a tenner would have been a steal. The others thrown in as well, nice finds :umbsup:
