Blade Runner PosterThis week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Rem, Ian and Jonathan dig deeper into Blade Runner from 1982, and directed by Ridley Scott.

This week, we’re very pleased to by joined by Mr. Blahg, from the Under The Comic Covers Podcast.

The Positive:
Blade Runner is widely regarded as one of the best Sci-Fi Movies ever made, and with good reason. Blade Runner exemplifies all the qualities of great Sci-Fi, cool technology, a glimpse into a believable future, and of course, and exploration of humanity and our place in the future.

 

The Negative:
7 different versions of the movie makes it a bit confusing when you’re talking to others about Blade Runner. You might have seen the Final Director’s cut and be confused when someone who saw the theatrical version mentions the Deckard narration.

Ian has a real problem with Ridley Scott’s pace in his movies, and we all agreed that the pace of Blade Runner is slow. Mr. Blahg liked the slow pace and how the film gradually revealed itself. Rem and Jonathan found the Vangelis soundtrack to be very 80’s and date (Rem doesn’t like when 80’s movies use 80’s music)

Conclusion
Blade Runner isn’t just a Sci-Fi Movie, it’s considered to be one of the THE Sci-Fi movies of our time. If you’ve never seen it, then watch the Director’s Cut and maybe find the theatrical version for comparion.

Blade Runner is crucial viewing for any Sci-Fi fan. Be patient, it’s a slow movie, but the storyline theme and presentation will be well worth it.
