By now, we all know the dark and sordid history of Ridley Scott’s misanthropic, hopeless voyage into Earth’s future in the seminal classic Blade Runner. Upon its release in 1982, it was met with derision by critics and poor attendance by the hordes of newly converted sci-fi geeks, which was a shocker in the post Star Wars world.
Well, over the past few decades, the flick has snow balled into one of the most acclaimed efforts in the genre, even surpassing Scott’s own revolutionary, xenomorph filled Alien as the greatest Sci-Fi film of all time.
So how the hell do you improve a classic, poetic, visionary film like Blade Runner? Well, you can always try adapting every frame into a series of sequential water color portraits, which is what one youtuber decided to do.
Yep, that’ll do it.
