Andy and I were just talking about the movie Blade Runner last night.  It has always been a film that intrigues and fascinates me and is one of those classics that I frequently go back to watch at least once a year.  As of late, I’ve been on a 1940′s-1950′s  film-noir kick and have been soaking in a number of films in that style ranging from low-budget and little known fare like Detour to more acclaimed titles like Double IndemnityBlade Runner is very much a futuristic noir in the style of these moody and stylized pieces of cinema.  A large contributor to the film working in this style is the score.  Film composer Vangelis used synthesizers and classical arrangements to breathe life into Ridley Scott’s rainy and neon-lit cityscapes.  Fans of the score and collectors of vinyl will be happy to hear that the soundtrack is heading our way. »
