Blade Runner

Blade Runner ★★★★★

So I had heard a lot about Blade Runner before I saw it about how it's 'one of the greatest sci-fi films ever made' etc. I had tried to watch it 3 or 4 times and each time I had been cut off and had to do something or fallen asleep after 10-15 minutes. So tonight I decided to sit down and conquer this high regarded sci-fi classic. I expected to watch a some what light hearted space action adventure with great effects but what I got instead, was a dark, mature, character driven, thematically important science fiction story with one of the most immersive worlds in cinema. Stunning cinematography and set/art design, one of the best scores I've ever heard, interesting and multi layered characters, themes that are thought provoking and an overall perfect science fiction film that I can now understand why it is considered to be so great.
