2019 According to Blade Runner

Heya Friends! It’s me, Anna.

Have you forgotten about me? I watch your favorite movie classics for the first time and tell you that I hate them. Mostly. Except for this one time a few days ago when I watched “Blade Runner” and LOVED IT. Mostly.

I’m not gonna lie. It was super creepy, slow, poorly acted and almost all of it was really unbelievable. But there were two really BEAUTIFUL things about Blade Runner: The Production Design and Harrison Ford.

Apparently analog tv’s make a comeback.

Oh and retro-looking flying cars are a thing too.

All animals are artificial, but we still think it’s a good idea to have snakes.

Replicants want to kill you but first, poetry.

And (drum roll) this is what the world looks like 2 years into the Trump presidency:

It felt really good to watch this movie, especially since they are remaking making a sequel this year. I’ve had a bluray copy of it in the basement with the plastic on it for 2 years!
