The Blade Runner

Anyone see the re-make yet?

Alot of press in the NYC market.  Played at the Ziegfeld, one of my favorite movie houses of old….grimey and dingy theater that takes me to another time…

Wired magazine has a nice expose on the influences Ridley Scott pulled to create the film.  Books such as “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, films such as Alien and Apocalypse Now…not to mention music from Chariots of Fire and cultural influences such as the mean and bad ass streets of Hong Kong.

One response to “The Blade Runner

  1. Just watched Blade Runner once again and was stunned when I saw Rick Deckard (30:55) using an iPhone controlling his apartment elevator… WTF?

    Judge for yourself:
