Blade Runner 1982

Blade Runner is set in 2019 dystopian Los Angeles. Rick Deckard is a “Blade Runner” someone who is to hunt down and kill ‘Replicants.’ Deckard is assigned to hunt down 4 Nexus-6 replicants. He goes to Tyrell Corp to get more info where he then meet Rachael a replicant. Who he finds out doesn't know she’s a replicant. Rachael ends up going to Deckard’s apartment to prove her humanity where Rick ends up disproving it. All the while Pris and Roy who are replicants stay with Sebastian one of the creators of the Nexus series. Roy this brute of a replicant convinces Sebastian to take him to Tyrell crop to talk to Tyrell, where he ends up killing him. While roy is out killing people Rick finds the flat kills Pris and then an epic battle ensures when Roy gets back. Near the end Roy has the chance to kill Rick but doesn't he just ends up leaving. The ending is of Rick and Rachael leaving his apartment in a hurry. Making you think that maybe Deckard isn’t really a human, that maybe he himself is a replicant.
This movie has a lot to do with memory implants. For example Rachael’s memories of Tyrell’s younger nieces memories. The imagery was very gloomy and what I would imagine a dystopia would look like with out all the government control. Also the movie has lots of ad placement. They were generally Asian ads but they were present. It gives way to talking about consumerism and how it shows that it still running our lives. You have large cooperation’s such as Tyrell’s and how they own everything.
