A-Z Challenge Blade Runner

B is for Blade Runner based on the book: Do Androids Dream Of Sheep?

One of the greatest concepts of all time.

By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force.

  1. I tried to read the book after seeing the movie many years ago, but I couldn’t get into it. I may have to try again.

    1. Good idea!

    1. Thanks for the feedback and we’ll come by later in the week to see what you’re up to Iain!

  2. Haven’t seen or read this one either, because I always confuse it with Total Recall and think I’ve already seen both versions — since that movie had an old one and an updated one too! 🙂

    1. LOL! Love that! Yeah, saw the Total Recalls and they can be confusing themselves. Liked the new one though. So glad you came by, Jamie!

  3. I saw Blade Runner, but not the 2049 film. It’s a good story. Sounds like I should read the book.

    1. The jury is still out over here but good to know the movie was worth seeing.
