The Canon Episode 16: BLADE RUNNER

Amy and Devin take on one of the sacred cows of scifi cinema. 

This was an interesting episode for me. I wanted there to be an argument - I wanted Amy and I to really come to verbal blows over Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. But we both ended up feeling quite similar: it's not really that good, and the only debate we ended up having was whether it was important enough, cinematically and culturally, to make up for being kind of bad.

I do hope that people actually listen to this episode before voting (they can vote here), because I am interested in a debate that tackles some of the problems that Amy and I have with the film. We recorded this before the new director for Blade Runner 2 was announced, so we don't get into that, but we certainly spend plenty of time on the "is Deckard a replicant?" question, as well as the vital "Who cares?" issue.
