In Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, the viewer is forced to determine what separates the human population from the replicant population and determined if Deckard is just in retiring the replicants. By blurring the line of what distinguishes replicant from human within the movie, Scott intends to break down the barrier that exists between human and replicant. This barrier is definitively defined by the human experience from a human’s perspective ultimately making the gap between what is human and what….
This ﬁlm pulls no punches in asking the most troubling questions about artiﬁcial intelligence
and cloning. What is a human? If it looks just like one, but we made it, can we kill it? This is Deckers
job, a “Blade Runner” played by Harrison Ford. When Replicants, the pseudo clone slaves of
human society, run amok (or in this case, return to earth, which they are banned from) it’s the job of
a Blade Runner to ﬁnd and “retire” them. They are spoken about in a very particular language….
Blade Runner – Movie Study Questions.
-describe the environment seen at the start of the movie. (It is based in Los Angeles. How does this scene differ from the images of Los Angeles we all know? What is the dominant color used here?)
The dominant colour is black which shows that bad things could potentially happen later on in the film which has a lot of smoke and depicks the city as a misty place.
What does the opening shot suggest about the environment of earth in 2019?

The film Blade Runner is based on the science fiction novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ written by Philip K. Dick (Abadzis). Blade Runner is set in the United States city of Los Angeles in the year 2019 where humans have discovered genetic engineering. Through this, they have found ways of manufacturing organic robots, which are replicates of humans. The manufacturing….
human? In Ridley Scott’s film, Blade Runner, This very question is asked. The distinction between humans and machines is blurred. Throughout the film, humans continuously disregard one another, only caring about themselves. They view all of the “Replicants” as mere objects, easily tossing them aside, whereas the “Replicants” continuously show more human traits. Ridley Scott’s great use of mise-en-scene only helps to reinforce that.
Ridley Scott’s film Blade Runner was released in 1982. It is set….
Blade Runner illustrates the hunger of mankind to defy the boundaries of humane principle and concepts of the natural environment. The film ironically depicts the genetically engineered replicants with more humanity and emotions than biological humans themselves. Blade Runner filmed in 1982 at a time of consumerism, flux of migration and global de-stabilisation, discontent and mutiny was a prime problem in society. Scott further ellaborates this idea of a sociocultural world, whereby….
Shelly and Scott reflect, nature and the natural world in the texts they create, Frankenstein and Blade Runner using literary devices and societal context. In Blade Runner, Scott uses the aspects of the 20th century tradition of dystopias and film noir as literary devices. Throughout Shelly's work of Frankenstein, the romantic and sublime themes of the era are examined as literary devices. The appreciation for the natural wonder of the world is evident throughout Frankenstein when Shelly emphasises….

Blade Runner, Directors Cut (1982), directed by Ridley Scott, is a film that asks the audience to redefine humanity. Scott has used the motion picture as a way of showing that in itself, humanity is about asking the right questions, such as ‘What am I?’ ‘Why am I here?’ and the ability to feel emotion. In trying to answer these questions, in the world of 2019, Los Angeles, the boundaries between human and non-human become blurred, till they almost disappear. Scott also comments on the needs of humans….
us and humanity itself. Examples of issues that have changed in value over time are the ideas of nature and the environment, and the concept of science and religion. These notions are explored and can be compared and contrasted in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner (The Director’s Cut) and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
The 19th century was a period of upcoming scientific & technological advancement, due to prominent scientists proposing controversial ideas, which defied the strict religious conventions….
