A Reviewed Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that typically means... it's Theater Thursday! This week though I'm going to do something a little different. I watched a movie a few weeks ago and talked about it here. Beezy hated it and I thought it was pretty good for it's time. It just seemed like one of those movies that you'd watch once and think hmm... ok I watch it.

That was Easter weekend and now every time I think about something to watch I catch myself thinking about that movie. I have no idea why either that's the thing. The movie wasn't anything extraordinary. Harrison Ford was the only good actor in the entire movie and while the story line was interesting and different it was just odd. Yet, I want to see it again!

Harrison Ford is living in the year 2019 in Los Angeles. He lives in a world where replicants have been genetically engineered to look like humans to due grunt types of work. Once people realized they became highly unstable they were banned on Earth. Replicants who defy the ban and come to Earth are hunted down and "retired". They are hunted down by men called Blade Runners. Rick (Ford) is a retired police officer and ex Blade Runner. He is persuaded to come out retirement to hunt down 4 replicants who have came to Earth. He starts at the Tyrell Corporation where the replicants were originally made. It's there he meets Rachael. Is she a human or a replicant? He must go through a longer process with her to find out. She is the newest model of replicant and she herself believes that she is human.

He's intrigued by her and at the same time he knows he kills people just like her. The replicants who have came to Earth are killing humans and Rick must track them down quickly. He hits the streets to find them but can't get Rachael out of his mind. Will he kill Rachael just like the others? Watch and find out!
