Blade Runner

Weird. But cool. A cult favorite.

Lost Me at the Ending

I watched this after reading "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", after enjoying the book and hearing about how great this film is. I'll say that they plucked a lot of plot of the book right out of the script for the movie, so that things that were critical to the story in the book are only hinted at in the movie, and only if you've read and know what you're looking for.

That being said, I did enjoy the bulk of the movie as an action flick and not an adaption. I completely threw my hands up at the ending though. Whoever was in charge of closing out this movie seemingly did away with a logical train of events and just tacked on something completely random that took you out of the rest of the story.

Didn't Understand It

I checked this out at the time I was reading "Ready Player One" because it was mentioned in the book, but I'd never seen it. Plus people had been telling me about how great it was for years. But I think maybe this is one of those movies you have to have grown up with or watched at the time it came out to really appreciate. I was honestly pretty bored with it. I think the effects were probably revolutionary at the time, and the idea was fresh then, but I couldn't get into it here in 2012. And I really didn't understand the ending. One of these days though, I'll read up on this movie, and hopefully that'll get me to appreciate it more.
