A remarkable scene IMO.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe . . . Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain . . . Time to die."

Blade Runner--best scene in the movie! Made me want to cry for the skull-crushing droid (Rutger Hauer)...

That's a wild scene and line, from a movie that was full of them. Best by far of the films made from Philip K Dick stories. Say, there's a question ... what are the others?
looking sketchy there...

I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life, anybody's life, my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die.

Now tell me what the hell I'm doing posting on some California based climbing site.

One of my all time favorite SF films. Ridley Scott did an awesome job, film noir and all. The soundtrack by Vangelis is wonderful, and I still listen to it now and then. Harrison Ford, well you can't get any better than that (looking foward to Indiana Jones IV).

One of my favorite classes in college was the Art of Cinema, and Blade Runner was my favorite film review.

I like the director's cut available on DVD, but I wish the original with Harrison's voice-over was availalbe also. Maybe they will do a double re-release with that option?

The film has so much to say. Way ahead of it's time IMHO.

Classic.

Further Edit: I agree Sean is a delicious gorgeoius babe in the movie.

Have any of you ever read the book that inspired the movie?
"Do Andriods Dream of Electric Sheep?"
Great read if you haven't. Very different ending.

drb1215--Oh My God! I thought it was a cult classic (besides being one of my favorite films) and sure to fool any normal SuperTopian.

You are now my hero!



Klimmer--I saw the original with the voice-over. Far superior to the Director's cut that I own. The voice-over changes the entire ending IMHO.

Did someone say "Film noir"?

"I hope they don't hang you, precious, by that sweet neck. Yes, angel, I'm gonna send you over. The chances are you'll get off with life. That means if you're a good girl, you'll be out in 20 years. I'll be waiting for you. If they hang you, I'll always remember you."

Kind of partial to A Scanner Darkly...jmo seemed the "most" Dickish...

My fave novel is Zap Gun, but the Perky Pat Microworld from "3 Stigmata" is pretty fantastic as well..

I also thought the original (with Ford's VO) was the vastly superior one. The VO was simple and direct and pulled up the important stuff for all to see and hear. It also added just the right emotional tone to the ending "time to die" scene.

Secondhand Lions was an awesome flick. It seems as though all the really good movies that people really like just never get their due.

Duvall and Caine were phenomenal, and the kid did a damn good job too.

Loved Blade Runner. My next favorite would probably by Dark City.

One of my favorite Dick stories, title now forgotten, was one where the hero started seeing terrible hallucinations, clanking monsters and machines, when he watched the evening news on TV. Goes to doc to find out what's wrong with him, doc reports -- here's the twist -- that he's been doped with a powerful anti-hallucinogen. Hero realizes that his horrible visions are a first glimpse of reality.

It's one of those what-you-thought-was-real-is-all-false moments that run through all of Dick's writing, and the resulting movies such as Blade Runner, Total Recall and AI.

Bluering--I liked the pig.



Chiloe--I liked that one, too! Only saw it once, late at night, but no kidding, ever since: I've really been wondering...
