"Blade Runner is a masterclass in visual storytelling, everything you need to know about the universe is shown to you within five minutes. (Don't watch the voiceover cut). It invented my favorite aesthetic Cyberpunk, and laid the foundation for my favorite Genre, Neon Noir. It's a must watch for Sci-fi fans, if only to understand how revolutionary it was to the genre.

"I saw this when I was like 9-10 years old and I had no idea what was happening but it looked cool so I was infatuated, fast forward obviously I can understand it and still love it even more probably now I know what is going on! But this movie aged like fine wine, thank god for practical effects and just some of the best it made this movie ageless. If you like moody sci-fi cypher punk movies this is the granddaddy of them all!"
"Masterclass sci fi film"
"Never knew this film was somewhat thought provoking. And the fact it came out in ‘82 and got a few things right about 2019 was pretty cool. Like smart homes, video calling, and digital advertising everywhere. Now I will have to check out the sequel that took 35 years for them to make"
