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.”  


Full List: 

#10 – The Terminator (1984) 

#9 – Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)

    I find it very interesting that Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is so different plotwise and yet the movie deals with the ISSUES and ideas remarkably right along Dick’s book. Another incredible film with more to it than plot—How much do we love LIFE–what would we give for it? Oh yeah.

    This is the best sci-fi film ever. I have like 2 versions of the thing. Still need to read the book though *shame*. Modern sci-fi flicks just don’t have the flavour of the 80’s.

    The only thing that comes close to Ridley Scott’s vision is the anime ‘Akira’. Cool plot, killer technology.
