I was afraid “Blade Runner” wouldn’t hold up on rewatch, but it mostly does! The cinematography, visual effects, and production design are stunning. The protagonist sexually assaulting someone so they fall in love with him… not so much.

I actually prefer the sequel, “Blade Runner 2049,” because its story and themes are more intricate when compared to “Blade Runner.”

Random observations:

  • I’d forgotten that the third act is basically a horror film, so that was cool to experience.
  • Note to self: refrain from wearing a necktie when setting out to “retire” a replicant.
  • I enjoyed seeing William Sanderson, 22 years before he went on to play E.B. Farnum in “Deadwood.”
