  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner 1982

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 02 May, 2016

    "The Final Cut" version of Ridley Scott’s Sci Fi classic: Blade Runner is my personal favourite cut of this impressive Science Fiction film.

The mission goes from bad to worse as they soon realise a dangerous alien predator is hunting them down. This is one of my favourite Arnie films. It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…
