Phil’s Top 5… Films Influenced by Blade Runner

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out:  Films Influenced by Blade Runner


Close but no cigar: Minority Report,Ghost in the Shell (2017), Blade Runner 2049, A.I

5 – Ghost in the Shell (1995)
Cyber punk animation Ghost In The Shell (and it’s much lesser remake) cribs heavily from the visual style of Blade Runner.


4 – Dark City
Alex Proyas dark, brooding dystopian Sci-Fi could dave come straight from the pages of Philip K Dick.


3 – Star Wars: Rogue One
Dystopian Sci-Fi and Star Wars go hand in hand by certainty there’s a heavy design influence that owes more than a passing debt to Bladed Runner in Rouge One


2 – Gattaca
Another 90’s film that owes a huge debt to Blade Runner, Gattaca is also another film mostly underappreciated on it’s initial run.


1 – Strange Days
Little seen classic from Kathryn Bigelow, took  massive chunk from the Blade Runner play book.  It’s a great film that deserves a major rewatch.
