'Blade Runner: Final Cut' . . .

Reduxed this last night on NF and was surprised how little I remembered about the film. First, it just wasn't as good as I recalled but at the time of release (1983), I (everyone) was wowed by the effects and atmosphere it created. Second, Ford was NOT ready for the role. I guess in '83 he was bankable from 'Star Wars' and on a roll from that but he had not grown. He mugged in the same silly ways he did in SW. I was let down. Third, the supporting cast was from the B-Leagues. I wonder if it was not to detract from the film and/or Ford's limited range?

Joke's on us: the film took place in 2019. (World Fair letdown: folks still not flying around in their cars.)
