I've seen things you people wouldn't believe! - Blade Runner


Blade Runner is a 1982 American dystopian science fiction thriller film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young and Edward James Olmos. The screenplay, written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples, is loosely based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.


The film depicts a dystopian Los Angeles in November 2019 in which genetically engineered organic robots called replicants—visually indistinguishable from adult humans—are manufactured by the powerful Tyrell Corporation as well as by other "mega-corporations" around the world. Their use on Earth is banned and replicants are exclusively used for dangerous, menial or leisure work on off-world colonies. Replicants who defy the ban and return to Earth are hunted down and "retired" by police special operatives known as "Blade Runners". The plot focuses on a brutal and cunning group of recently escaped replicants hiding in Los Angeles and the burnt-out expert Blade Runner, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who reluctantly agrees to take on one more assignment to hunt them down. 


So I am going to start sharing the ideas behind my art/designs and luck would have it I get two ways to show you in my "BOOKS" and now "SHIRTS"... here is one of those t-shirt designs for me is like "Hey look this large human shaped box showed up, here is what the label had said"... would you open it? The future can be a scary place, when we let those robots take our places in daily tasks, so please open your box... it's here because you ordered it.

I just got the Blu-Ray edition of this film and got inspired, well I guess that is we do get inspired. You know the version where we are lead to believe that Dekard is one that he seeks out as a Blade Runner. So in your own travels today and have a moment, please [CLICK HERE] cause "I know you want more life"... do you know that Rob Zombie's song "More-Human-Than Human" was partial inspired by this film? I remember in my life this moved me out of just being a Star Wars fan into another world of Science Fiction. So for you all reading this, "BE INSPIRED" find your "thing" that moves you and do it!

  1. One of my favorite movies of all time. So much to think about from this movie. Bigger questions than most films of any genre.

    Didn't know that about the Rob Zombie song, But Gary Numan is a fan, and this song is inspired by Blade Runner:

    1. That is a great idea, one of those underrated films from a great epic book...

  3. Going to have that tune in my head all day - and that's a good thing!
    Between the original version and the director's cut, I have to admit - I prefer the original. Scott took out Decker's internal dialog and it lost something, especially in the scene where it's 'Time to die.'

  4. Love, love, love this film! It's got so many great memories for me and has a special place in my DVD collection.

    If I have to be a little whiny git, regarding the film, it would have to be the part where the dove is released, and the cut scene is an industrial factory in daylight!? Apart from that, the rest is fantastic. Shame Mr Ridley Scott couldn't have re-shot that last scene and maintained continuity.

    I also have the Blade Runner game - which is brilliant beyond compare. But then, I'm biased. And I also own the soundtrack by Vangelis - EPIC!

    Excellent choice, Jeremy, you've made my day :)

    @ Alex ~ agreed, the dialogue just makes the film for me.

  6. Unlike Alex I like the Directors cut. I can make up my own mind to what is being portrayed. I like your shirts. I need to get my wife to give me my allowance to buy it...Seriously If she doesn't do that I would spend all our money on comics, movies and stuff. Keep up the great work!

    1. After reading my comments, I didn't want to sound condescending to Alex or those that like the original. Justs a personal preference. :)

  7. First I have always loved More Human than Human and had no clue this movie inspired it. Second I love the shirts.

  8. Just think when the book was written and then the movie made how far into the future these creators thought we would be by 2019.

    Truth is... we suck at the futuristic stuff. :)

  9. I am with Alex. I hate the version with the internal dialogue removed. The film was paced for it and without it, the film lags badly in parts. I can't find the version with the narration so I can't watch BLADERUNNER anymore. Bummer! :-)

  10. I prefer the original. Cool shirts!
