Who cried, or at least shed a tear...

...during Blade Runner?

I know I did each time at some point during the "Love Theme" scene with Deckard and Rachel. The cinematographic language in that scene is truly incredible.

I know I've said it before on another topic in the forum, but the scene where Deckard callously unmasks Rachels true identity (memory implants etc) always moves me. I've always appreciated the fact that the script doesn't give her character any lines after Deckards apology, the camera just concentrates on her face. Sean Young never had a better scene (imho).

never cried... but was very moved by Rachel's statement:

"I'm not IN the business....I AM the business...."

this is such a sissy girly post, lol.

j/k. i never cried, but actually felt more moved (you could call it sympathetic) when rachel is finding out she's a replicant (the spider memory).

Well, it might be girly for you machos to admit you cried but at least I can honestly say that I was deeply touched by the film's beauty and sadness. Maybe you guys only scratched the film's surface and still have no real clue of what Blade Runner is all about. :lol:

The rach/deck scene never affected me that much, but i consider the Tears in rain scene to be very uplifting. The music during that scene is beatiful and has a great deal on the result. Years ago I used to tear a bit when I watched it, but not anymore. I watched it too many times I guess.
Still it's the most beatiful scene for me.

Well I've never cried for any of the movie. The Tears in Rain scene with Roy speaks to me and is very poetic. I think you like the movie for what grabs you the most. I for one, love the scenery, the atmosphere, and the different look of 2019. The characters are very interesting and the whole movie almost speaks to you like a poem. The action is great when there is some, and dos'nt go overboard and seems like how a real person would react in the life or death situations in the movie instead of acting like a super being.

It takes a real man to cry and that's why, sir, I'll let you live!

haaa, in the words of my Am. history teacher "ahh, yes yes, good good, witty witty." he loves witty quotes like that. nice one.

i must go back and fix what i said before, because i didnt really clarify. when i frist watched blade runner, i was in a state of depression, so my emotions and thoughts werent what they would normally be. i bought the dvd the same time, and watched it throughout this incident, so i cant really say how i felt when i first saw it...those werent my true feelings or emotions.

Re: Who cried, or at least shed a tear...

The second time I watched Blade Runner on DVD (the 2006 re-issue of the director's cut) I was at the brink of tears when Roy died. The first time, I watched it with Mum and went: "Is he dead?" and went all solemn and quiet.

:D

Re: Who cried, or at least shed a tear...

One time while watching Blade Runner I started to cry about half way through because I realized my bottle of Old Grandad was almost empty... so, so sad...I think that was the only time though...
