Blade Runner

Well first off, I thought that it was very interesting to see how the creators of Blade Runner imagined how the world would be in 2017. It was simply fascinating to watch because the year 2017 is right around the corner for people living in today's society.

Blade Runner was a very popular movie when it came out and I can understand the reason for it being so. I would have never choose this movie to watch, but I am glad that it was the movie chosen for this course. It tied in perfectly with Freud's theories and it held my attention throughout the whole movie.

Blade Runner's ending was a typical, normal happy ending with the viewer having very few questions at the end. One of those questions would be, "Did she ever die?" or "What happened to them once they left the house?"

The reason for us watching this movie was to compare it to Freud's essay "The Uncanny". And yes, I had experienced many, many uncanny feelings throughout this movie. I did not know why their were all of those Asians in LA and I did not know how Blade Runner knew the difference between humans and replicants. I also experienced uncanny feelings when Prue was invited into Sebastian's house because of the way that she acted.

And the list of uncanny moments in Blade Runner could go on forever...
