Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: Blade Runner

It's 2019 and we're in a technological hellscape. Overpopulated cities are made up of gargantuan structures that look both futuristic and archaic at the same time. Neon is everywhere. And replicants are running wild. Directed by Ridley Scott and based on the legendary works of Philip K. Dick, Blade Runner sees special agent Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) on a mission to hunt down a crew of rogue replicants. But as the violent androids begin to question their own existence, so does he. On this episode, we discuss Blade Runner's cult status, its signature aesthetics, style, and sound, as well as its place in the sci-fi hall of fame.
