    There's something about this that's so dank, it's like how much more dank could this be?
    And the answer is none. None more dank.

    Blade Runner to me was an alternative to Asimov's positronic robots, much darker.

    I didn't think it was possible for me to respect/love deGrasse Tyson, but hearing that he loves Blade Runner (well of course he does!) Just moved him higher in my estimation. Respect, dude! And "LIKE" isn't enough; where's the LOVE-button!?

    Sorry Adam, Deckard being a replicant makes no sense. I've heard every argument and every one falls apart upon real examination.

    Blade Runner has the best soundtrack (and sound design) of all time, in my opinion. The film wouldn't have been nearly as watchable for me were it not for Vangelis's dreamy, synthesizer soundtrack.

    The original Bladerunner accurately foresaw one of the likely effects of climate change - the constant rain.

    Blade Runner is special, it is the most realised, detailed and realistic portrayal of a sci-fi universe ever put to screen. Blade Runner's world is so detailed that you notice things in the background you haven't seen before. The sets are beautiful and it is a visual masterpiece. Blade Runner is the last real Analogue SFX movie and quite possibly the best. It would be over 15 years later before we see digital effects that are capable of such impressive visuals.
    Blade Runner features three character arcs, the story of Rachel, of Roy and of Deckard. These characters go through a transformation mentally and spiritually as the movie progresses.
    Blade Runner deals with important topics that are becoming more and more relevant as technology catches up to that which was seen in sci-fi of the 1980s. Blade Runner wasn't just a movie but also a warning of a possible future.

    two things. And I call them
    Thing One and Thing Two.
    These Things will not bite you.
    They want to have fun.'
    Then, out of the box
    came Thing Two and Thing One!"

    Spoiler warning: Decker is TOTALLY a replicant!

  • Shruggz Da Str8-Faced Clown

    The greatness of the original Blade Runner is a testament to the genius of Phillip K. Dick -- the dark sci-fi pioneer whose story "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?" was the source material that Blade Runner was adapted from.

    I still remember the wonder I felt seeing Blade Runner as a kid after HBO and VCRs became commonplace (late 80s I guess). I still love the movie and the fact that it left questions lingering (as the author of the book intended).

    It would have been interesting to hear their views about 'The Thing' 1982 directed by John Carpenter. That was also about what is and isn't alive.

    2049 is a deep movie but overall very lackluster. It's pails in comparison to the original is every way except visuals [obviously].
    My biggest gripe is the run time. It's too long. Too slow. That just kills the entertainment aspect.

      I think they're talking about the original 80's release, vs the other versions of it.
      There are some differences (the ending for ex) that some people like, while others don't.
