      Yes, it's really not popular for it's acting and writing, but because of the effects and technology used at the time. If you watch it now, compared to current movies, it's really nothing special. However, when it was made, it was considered way ahead of it's time and so far beyond any other movie in terms of effects.

      I am of the impression that all good movies can beat the test of time, that the truly great ones will still be good today as they were when they were created, as opposed to being good at the time but now aren't that good. However, with any movie renown and lauded for it's special effects of the time is more than likely not going to withstand the test of time because it is assumed that technology will gradually advance to where improvements in effects are imminent.

      While it's rather difficult, you have to view Blade Runner with the time period in mind in order to fully appreciate how spectacular it was.

          I feel the same way. My friend loves that movie and he kept asking me to watch it. I started watching expecting it to be this great movie, I could barely watch it all.

          • I saw Blade Runner for the first time last week. I loved it.

            • Same here, I saw Blade Runner a year ago and was amazed. What is wrong with you people?

              • I loath Blade Runner. It has the most simplistic and repetitive narrative you can possibly write (Harrison Ford fights and kills one robot, then fights and kills another robot, then fights and kills the really hard to kill robot). Along the way it tries to be all smart and full of itself (since they didn't spend any time on it by trying to create an interesting plot) by being overly pretentious. Is Ford a robot? Is he human? Omg!! We'll never know!!! We're all gonna die someday? Even if we're robots? Holy ****, my brain can't take it!!

                I honestly couldn't give a ****.

                The special effects are outdated, which basically means the movie is now what it is... a boring story with bad acting. "We're robots, we show no emotion. We sit here with our eyes wide open and blank stares." If you like Harrison Ford, I don't know why you would, but if you do, you might like the movie a little more. Since he's one of the most emotionally restricted actors out there, I hate him.

                It's a piece of ****. I hate it so much since it took about 4 tries for me to finally complete one viewing of it (I kept falling asleep). I kept coming back because I heard how great it was. There is nothing worse than watching an awful movie and forcing yourself to sit through it because of its unwarranted "classic" status.

                • Yeah, **** Philip K. Dick's story! It's not like he's the greatest science fiction writer of the 20th century or anything...

                  Blade Runner is a goddamned fantastic movie. Unless you watch the version with the voiceover narration. Then it's just stupid.

                      Haha, I rented that movie to watch with my Mom a night I had off over winter break. Morbid is probably the best word to describe Sunshine Cleaning...I saw the front thinking pleasant comedy and read good reviews, so why not.

                      Definitely not a heart-warming movie, but a pretty solid story overall in the end. Intense relationships.

                        Not to mention it has pioneered the 'dystopian' future of Earth; just as Aliens gave us twenty years of Space Marine knockoffs. It has to be respected, if only for that.

                          How is that wrong? Because I enjoyed a movie that had a better narrative and all around meaning then a movie that rehashed a TON of other movies with cliche dialogue and amazing effects? Avatar is being hyped wayyyyyy to much. I wouldnt even sit through it for a second viewing. None of the creatures were creative or inventive, the only reason their getting praise is from the 3-D style and amazing CGI, which yes are both impressive, but doesnt make it an amazing movie.

                          • So with Marc Webb set to direct the new Spider-Man reboot...does anyone see him going w/ JGL as Peter Parker?

                            I dont know exactly what direction he wants to go in and I dont know anything about the comic itself. Would JGL make a good Peter Parker?

                            Who else would you like to see play the role? I know a lot of people hated Tobey for w/e reason to begin with.

                            • HA, "Webb". But yeah rumor has it that he wants JGL for the part. I like Webb and what he did with 500 Days, and JGL is awesome, but I couldn't give two shits about any Spiderman movie to be honest.

                              • I dont care about Spider-Man either, I've never been a fan. And never thought the movies were as great as everyone said they were.

                                I was just curious because, I dont even know much about Peter Parker other than how he was portrayed by Raimi and Maguire.

                                Thanks BoneKrusher^
