Quotes

[on Harrison Ford's performance]
Rutger Hauer: His role didn't seem to fit him, or he couldn't make it fit. I know that that was going on and I don't know why but if he would have been stronger, I would of not been so shiny, y'know.

I'm not a big fan of "Blade Runner" (great visuals+no plot= bad movie), but I thought this documentary would make me revise my original opinion. It didn't.

In fact, this documentary was very uninspired. I was really shocked when producers started bashing Ridley's work.

Not much technical information either. Just a lot of talking. Although it was funny to find out they actually used outtakes from Kubrick's "Shining".

No matter how "hard" it tries, it won't make you feel "Blade Runner" is something great... unless you're convinced this way around.
