All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Title: Blade Runner 1982

Quintessential cyberpunk movie starring Harrison Ford that influenced many Japanese animes. Arguably, Rutger Hauer's best performance. Sean Young is my linking actor from "Stripes."

Memorable scene:

Batty's death (played by Rutger Hauer) at the end of the movie. I thought that the scene was a profound questioning of mortality, especially when the end is near.

Top Quotes from Blade Runner:

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

"It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?"

"Painful to live in fear, isn't it?"

Minor Part, Supporting Casts, Extras who stood out:

Darryl Hannah, Edward James Olmos, Brion James.


The movie is based on Phillip K. Dick's novel, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" "Blade Runner" has a heavy influence on an anime that I like a lot - "Ghost in the Shell."
