Always referenced, never replicated. In a future vision of Los Angeles in 2019, Deckard (Harrison Ford, fresh from playing Han Solo and Indiana Jones) hunts down replicant humanoids in Ridley Scott's immensely stylist, neon-lit interpretation of a Philip K. Dick novel. Considered a bomb upon its initial release, the half-dozen different cuts affirm 'Blade Runner' as a classic of the neo-noir genre. After a decade of tinkering and adapting the original theatrical release, Scott revealed this Director's Cut, one that might finally answer the question: is a replicant capable of love?

Stars: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young

Director: Ridley Scott

Year: 1982

Running time: 1hr 57min

Genre: Action/Drama/Sci-Fi
