My Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies: #6 – Blade Runner

#6 – Blade Runner (1982)

  

Hmm…yet another awesome sci-fi flick from the 80’s. How can a decade that spawned such crappy music have given us such a plethora of great science fiction?  

Any movie based on a book by Philip K. Dick is going to be a bit out there. And with Ridley Scott for a director, you are in for quite a ride with ‘Blade Runner’.  

You’ve also got Harrison Ford chasing rogue androids (‘replicants’), mystery, and Harrison Ford along for the ride. The sets and ambiance in the movie is really incredible as well. I’ve never seen a sci-fi movie that looks like this.  

It’s almost a film noir of sci-fi; dark, mysterious, and full of surprises. Its uniqueness and awesomeness make it a worthy addition to my top 10.  

“I need ya, Decks. This is a bad one, the worst yet. I need the old blade runner, I need your magic.”
