Sort of Noir meets the Matrix but this film actually preceeded the Matrix, its got a lot of 50's era images, not bad.

I am embarassed to say I have not seen "Bladerunner". I have always stayed away from it because I have only heard bad things about it. But perhaps I am getting opinions from the wrong people.

IMO Blade Runner is an incredible if heavily flawed pic. I recomend seeing the DC first, there should  be an SE coming out late this year on R1.

I like the creepy feel of the "Murphy's Law" type of future it depicts.


Reminds me a bit of the old "Outerlimts" B&W TV show.

well you absolutely need to make your own opinion on movies but I can not advise you not to watch Blade Runner for several reasons:first of all it is part of the most interesting Science Fiction movies with 2001 and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It would be too long to explain why, one day if we meet may be. Anyway there is one of my favorite scenes, may be my favorite love scene in Blade Runner when Deckard (Harrison Ford in his best film and performance) and Rachel are in front of the piano. It is so great! And let me tell just one thing about the last scene: Rutger Hauer(Roy) is stunning in this anti hero performance. He is definitely part of the modern greatest anti heroes.Everything is very well done in this movie, for me it is a masterpiece. Thank you very much Mr Scott for the pleasure I have watching it!

Roberti, do you have the behind the scenes book Future Noir (I bet you do  Wink ). If you have it may be worth checking out the cinefax book Blade Runner: The Inside Story, its an excellent, if a little dry, account behind the scenes of the FX. The best bit about the book is the excellent photos of the models being prepped for shooting. Oh and of course, theres the new DVD coming out late 2006/early 2007  Grin

Saw a pretty good Noir yesterday on TCM, "Raw Deal" (1948) with Dennis O'Keef, Clare Trevor, Marsha Hunt, Raymond Burr, John Ireland, Dir Anthony Mann, it was pretty good Burr who is rather stout to begin with is the head baddie/pyromaniac he's always shot with an open flame in the frame to emphasise this lol, also he's shot from below and at an angle so that his bulk takes up over half the frame.

Does anybody know the title to the noir film that has that famous scene where This brute sends a poor old lady to her death as he sends her wheel chair(as she is on it) down a flight of stairs?

FORGOTTEN FILM NOIR # 1 DOUBLE FEATURE PORTLAND EXPRESS & THEY WERE SO YOUNG (1957, 1954)
