I could not think of a better “robot” movie than Blade Runner. What Ridley Scott did with this film is pure magic. The film’s noir tone makes it easily distinguishable amongst the several sci fi films of the time. The deeper meanings of Blade Runner will leave you questioning your own humanity for days as the film looks into the fundamental question of what it means to be human. Vangelis’s score is memorable to say the least and is dream-like in it’s nature. This is an absolute classic. Watch!!!

I respect this film but I don’t like it. It is the benchmark for dystopian fantasy sci fi and it changed cinema forever. I simply found the narrative too boring and distant for me. It’s a cold film and I still feel as a piece of entertainment it’s weak. However the vision on show is incredible especially for the era. It’s still not been bettered in that regard.

The most stunning and compelling vision of the future ever put on film. Blade runner is what scifi is all about. Great performances, engaging and thought provoking storyline and music that elevates the visuals in a perfect way. This is the reason I love scifi and I will always come back to this world for more. Blade Runner is as influential as it is superb.

Essentially started an entire subgenre of films within the science fiction realm. This is the king of cyber punk. Ridley Scott has only been better on one other film (alien). The effects were unmatched for the time, and still hold up to this day!!! The vangelis soundtrack is hypnotizing, and Rutger hauer is incredible. A masterpiece.
