My 50 Favorite Flicks • #3

Like tears in the rain comes the first of my top 3…

Blade Runner (1982)
3
Here it is, my top 3 favorite flicks, and to start it off is yet another Harrison Ford performance, and yet another Ridley Scott film.  I wouldn’t say I am a fan of Ridley Scott, but I sure do highly enjoy a select few of his movies.  This being one of them.  This movie has everything going for it.  A great lead character Deckard.  A great futuristic world with practical effects.  A great story about robots (replicants) looking just like us, and not knowing who they are.  I also love the mystery thread that makes us wonder if Deckard is a replicant or not, and it is never directly answered.  The 80’s synthesized soundtrack ads so much to the tone and is in regular rotation in my studio for drawing. Plain and simple, they just don’t make movies like this anymore.  Brilliant!  And don’t make a sequel Scott, stop ruining your masterpieces.
