Ask Adam Savage: Why I Still Like Blade Runner

50 937 Näkymät

"Is there a difference in what attracted you to Blade Runner when you first saw it and what still attracts you to it to this day?" "Since refining your machining skills this year, what one Blade Runner (franchise) prop would you like to tackle?" In this excerpt from our Feb. 9 live stream, Adam answers a wide range of questions from Tested members Grovespaz, Seth Huckstead, Nerds&Makers, KingNickSA and Brian Creasey (whom we thank for their support!).

  • I've always loved Bladerunner. It's the one movie that introduced me to cyberpunk and it's also the movie that practically started the iconic cyberpunk aesthetic that we know today.

  • blade runner resonates with me because i think all of us have a desire to know who created us, how and why. Also having our lives (lifespan for the replicants in the movie, Rick Deckard always questioning if his life is) predetermined is something I believe we all yearn for.

  • When Blade Runner first came out, I had to read PK Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep,” the source/inspiration for the film - great for an added dimension. Vangelis’ soundtrack was also on heavy replay. I too loved Murakami’s “1Q84.” I love his storytelling.

  • I want more movies in the Ridley-verse but I don't want them to be Blade Runner or Alien. I want something NEW in that universe. I just want to visit that world again. Technically the movie Soldier (1998) is apparently set in the same universe but it's not the same caliber and not made by Ridley. Best part of that movie is Loreena McKennitt - night ride across the Caucasus on the soundtrack

  • It really makes me happy when I hear someone influential and someone that I've really admire since I was young talk about art in a positive way (mainly painting as I'm studying it at university) Not just the classics like Degas as you mentioned but also Francis Bacon and Keifer whom many people as I've heard dislike/hate, and those people go on to belittle and hate on contemporary artists just because they're not like the old masters. Of course it's an opinion, but what is the point when it ends up putting young artists like me down? I have been in a super deep block/slump, your videos really cheer me up so thank you 😊

  • It's entirely different for me now. I fell in love with the world of Blade Runner at first sight. The production design wowed me like no film before, or since. So I still love the world, but what I love most about the film now...the themes of what it means to be human, how much more human the replicants truly are than the demoralized humans who enslave them...all of that took time for me to discover and fully appreciate.

  • Adam, I am so glad you mentioned “falling into” Art, I had this exact experience looking at “The Fighting Temeraire” by Turner in London, people around me thought I was breaking down, difficult to explain why to my Wife without sounding weird. BR has always been the yardstick other film should be measured against for me, I still watch occasionally and still see something I’ve missed previously, it’s Ridleys Mona Lisa.

  • Blade Runner - a timeless dystopian Film Noir, a 1982 vision of what could be the future...watching this movie over and over is a luxury that new technology brought us with DVD - everything is perfect in this movie, the picture, SFX , Acting, Story and the music from Vangelis enhance so well the atmosphere...a must to possess

  • Have you read Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? The story is quite different than Blade Runner and it has a much more spiritual tone to it but still has the same "vibe". One of the best books I have ever read. Philip K Dick is a genius.

  • Blade Runner for me is like a spiritual thing, it has all the elements of art I love and Harrison Ford as Deckard was the cherry as a child watching something I shouldn't. Syd Mead is to this day a massive influence on me, I love the mans work and Sir Ridley Scott is as influential and thought provoking as Stanley Kubrick, The Shining and Blade Runner are connected, At the end the car in the mountains in the helicopter shots are unused footage from The Shining intro.

  • Goodness. You really captured the feeling of the newness and excitement I felt about the world as a young man. Art, be it books, films, paintings, ect., was something felt viscerally. It quickened my appreciation for my fellow man and opened my eyes to the possibilities that life presented. In the years since, while my exposure to various media has enabled me to separate the wheat from the the chaff, I find those gems fewer and farther between. That is bittersweet. Thanks for the memories.

  • I remember Times Square in the 1980s...I was in my early 20s, and I was staying at my aunt's place in Yonkers, and visiting a girlfriend in Long Island near Lynbrook on the LIRR...So I would walk between Grand Central and Penn Station since the subway at that time was kinda scary. I remember the porn shops and movie places...but I do miss the pinball arcades that were also in that area. But it was indeed a grimey, dirty time and place.

  • Went on a curse in the 1980's and Syd Mead was on there and did a presentation (book sales too) and a lot of the questions in the Q&A session were about Blade Runner along with all the other movies he had done art for at that time (2010, TRON, Aliens). That was quite a good presentation, really enjoyed it. So long ago hard to remember many specific answers except that they used Chinese in the City backdrop as they wanted it to be extremely "busy" and if you could have read all the signs you would not pay attention to the narrative or some such reason.
