BR's Big Rep
When I first saw Blade Runner I didn't think much of it. It then acquired a reputation so I checked it out again, and still didn't think much.
It was recently on TV, allegedly the "director's cut" (there are so many versions I can't keep track), so I thought I'd give it another chance. Turned out this "new" version still had the voice-over, so I'm pretty sure it's what I'd seen before. Still hasn't improved.
The movie seems so delighted with its design that it skimps on plot and characterization. (BTW, the replicants can easily destroy Deckard, but over and over they allow themselves to be shot, as if it's a remake of that scene from Raiders.) The story takes place in Los Angeles, 2019. Perhaps I'll watch it again in ten years to see how close it comes.
PS Early on there's a scene with Edward James Olmos where they talk about "skinjobs." I admit that has a whole new resonance today.
