I've heard that Blade Runner was "one of the best movies of the eighties"--a decade I am very disappointed to have missed--so I decided to watch it tonight. First, it was waaayyyy different that I expected! And not really in a good way...I chalk it up the sociocultural differences between now & 1982.
When I first saw Pris, I thought she was a transgender prostitute because she was walking on a dark street. What a dork. But when I Googled Daryl Hannah I found out she was in one of my favorite movies!
...And then I felt dumb for not recognizing her. Pris ended up being my favorite character; partly because she was the only one that seemed "human." I just could not understand the other characters and why they did what they did. I guess you could say they weren't relatable.
I totally didn't get what was up with this guy...but then again, I'm a little slow. He looked really cool anyways.
Of course, I'm a fan of Rachel and her 1940's/Goth awesomeness. No surprise there.
Some parts were pretty racist.
But I really liked the music!
