1. Man, that was some stilted, pretentious dialogue
Neat movie though.

5. The line actually worked in the film. Have not seen it for 20 years
but remembered the line and pic the minute I saw it on the Latest scroll down. Prophetic picture.

6. I thought that was a great line.
Wonderful soliloquy.

11. I agree. That particular line is not my favorite in that speech though.
My favorite is "I have done questionable things." It sticks in my mind.

Anyone who cannot say that when dying probably has never lived.

Rutger Hower never quite found his thing. Its a shame.

3. I've watched c-beams glitter in the dark near Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost now... like tears in the rain.

4. Fiery the angels fell! Deep thunder roared around their shores;
Burning at the fires of Orc.



And a great sample of that in UNKLE's "Psyence Fiction"

7. One of my all time favorite movies....
good casting, good writing, good sets, good filming, good directing...

Bladerunner is just one of those movies I can watch over and over and over again....good style...

8. "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe."
My favorite film.

It's been echoed in every grim future earth film that's been made since, but has yet to be equaled, imho.

Glorious mix of gritty poverty, universally available high tech, and insane wealth, all in one dark future.

10. Not to mention...
The huge impact it has had in sci-fi in general, especially the visual style. Not only in movies, but games (such as G-Police), etc.
