When Dr. Henry Jones, Sr. suddenly goes missing while pursuing the Holy Grail, eminent archaeologist Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones, Jr. must follow in his father's footsteps to stop the Nazis from getting their hands on the Holy Grail first.
In the futuristic year of 2019, Los Angeles has become a dark and depressing metropolis, filled with urban decay. Rick Deckard, an ex-cop, is a "Blade Runner". Blade runners are people assigned to assassinate "replicants". The replicants are androids that look like real human beings. When four replicants commit a bloody mutiny on the Off World colony, Deckard is called out of retirement to track down the androids. As he tracks the replicants, eliminating them one by one, he soon comes across another replicant, Rachel, who evokes human emotion, despite the fact that she's a replicant herself. As Deckard closes in on the leader of the replicant group, his true hatred toward artificial intelligence makes him question his own identity in this future world, including what's human and what's not human.

Syd Mead was originally hired to design vehicles and props. However, in his sketches, he would include backgrounds for contextualization (such as streets and Deckard's apartment). Ridley Scott was so impressed with Mead's work that he asked him to work on designing the environment of the film, as well as painting some of the mattes. Mead, who was originally supposed to be hired for only a few days, stayed on the production for several weeks for a fee of 1500 dollars per day. This was one of the factors that caused the film to go over budget. See more »
When Deckard and Bryant are reviewing the video from Leon's VK
empathy test, the dialogue between Leon and Holden is not as fast as it was in the original scene. In addition, Leon is heard to say "Uh..." prior to identifying his hotel room number, which he does not do in the earlier version of the scene. See more »

In the "happy ending" Theatrical/International cuts, the credits play over the gorgeous scenery. In later Director/Final cuts, they play over a normal black background. See more »
The last ten minutes don't make up for the first two hours.
Let me get something straight here. If you don't like this movie, you don't understand it. Why? Because you just don't. You're not allowed to dislike this movie. Why? Well, this is one of those movies that has gathered a huge fan-base over the years. The fan-base is so large in fact that anyone who dislikes the film is instantly discredited as a tasteless Michael Bay-devouring idiot and dismissed without any notice. So, you like it or you're an idiot, got it? Good. Now let me say right out that I do not like "Blade Runner" and I consider it to be a completely brain dead wannabe intellectual science-fiction film that spends two hours delivering a careless and poorly managed love story and then suddenly at the end, WHOOPS! IT'S A STATEMENT ON THE MEANING OF LIFE! So the great director Ridley Scott (he's great because he made Gladiator and you're not allowed to dislike that film either) forces some hokey "Like tears in the rain" speech upon the audience while Harrison Ford looks like he just got punched in the nuts by Bonzo the Clown.
But to be fair Harrison looks like this throughout the entire film. You'll notice the debate of whether his character Dekkard is a replicant. Who the frig cares when the character is about as realistic as a robot? He may as well be a replicant either way since that's what he acts like in the movie. Talk about a one-dimensional performance! As far as I can tell Ford Ranger displays two emotions in this movie: Depressed, and apathetic. Sometimes a mixture of the two, which results in numb ignorance.
Oh, the grand pleasures of a finely sculpted masterpiece of cinematic excellence. Thank you Ridley Scott for delivering a poignant commentary on the meaning of life. I'm so glad you don't have an ego and your film isn't a worthless piece of crap. Well done, boys. Well done.
