It's one of my favorite films. Has been since 8th grade. There're some very laughable, cheesy moments (like Rutger Hauer running around in white spandex shorts) along side some of the best dystopian "cyber-punk" imagery ever created. Really, that's what this film is all about: dark, futuristic imagery. In that respect it's a masterpiece. The script could use some work though. Not crap.

This film always amazes me. Usually I go a few years without seeing it and am prepared for disappointment. "I guess I'll watch this damn thing." It's always good though. It just nails that "dark future" atmosphere that so many other films, classics even, have failed to hit.

Rutger Hauer would have been the perfect personification of Batman.
I believe he would have been really great if he got to play this caracter.
This guy was born to play Batman.

'I want more life, fucker'

Now come on, admit it. You've always wanted to say that to the creator.

not crap! although I would like to see a DVD release of the voice-over version. having grown up watching it on tv, i'm kind of partial to it, rather than the director's cut.

What pussy voted crap on this masterpiece without defending his or her choice? Weak sauce!

NOT CRAP.

It gets better on each viewing. Niether Ridley Scott or Harrison Ford will ever top this.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die."

Quote from Blade Runner? No. Quote from my animation tutor. I can't remember what triggered it, it was a piece of work.

I've only ever seen the directors cut which is NOT CRAP.
How do the two versions compare?

- No voiceover on the director's cut.

- They leave out the last scene of them driving off into the mountains. You're never sure if Rachael really lives.

Blade Runner, you are NOT CRAP. I too prefer your original voice-over version but I'm a big sucker for voice-over.

Lode Runner, you are also NOT CRAP but we'll get to that later.

Also, Dekkard has that dream of a unicorn while drunk at the piano, suggestin gthat he has the same memory implants as a replicant.

I vastly prefer the director's cut version, despite having grown up on the overdubbed one. It has breathed new life into this film allowing me to enjoy it as an adult.

I agree.It`s my favorite film of Ridley Scott.
I also like his first feature film, "the Duelists" very much.

They're too different. Both great in their own way and with similar themes, but too different to share a title. The book is more obvious in it's suggestion that Deckard is a replicant.

The film is NOT CRAP. Both the voiceover version and the non voiceover version. I prefer the non. It's a more mysterious and surreal film that way.

Good book, shit film. Like all film versions of PKD novels (and maybe all novels) they take out all the meaningful stuff and keep the "cool" stuff.

Fuck this film.

It's silly to even compare the book to the film, the film stands as it's own entity as does the book. Never the 2 shall meet.
