We've seen things you people wouldn't believe but soon they'll all be gone.  Lost in time, like tears in rain. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian is joined by special guest Carlo (from The Movie Loot) as we review Blade Runner on its 40th anniversary. Be prepared to decipher origami in our 128th episode as we discuss:

  • We consider why Rutger Hauer might have been the perfect replicant
  • Just how much Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford didn't get along
  • The concept of the Blade Runner curse
  • What things about living in 2019 they got right, and what they got wrong
  • Where we see the fingerprints of Blade Runner in popular culture
  • How Vangelis had a great 5 year run and then was lost forever
  • Some working issues between Harrison Ford and Sean Young
  • Whether or not Blade Runner is the Best Film Ever.
