2. ‘Blade Runner’ is Boring and Vapid

Okay, so Blade Runner is undeniably gorgeous. The set design and cinematography are exquisite. Unfortunately, with the exception of Rutger Hauer’s “Tears in the Rain” speech (which the actor, not the screenwriter, wrote), the dialogue is total crap. Also, the film does very little to remedy the superficial “philosophy” evoked in the first fifteen minutes. Read the book instead.
