Probably just Blade Runner for me, those are some tight films though.
I can't believe ppl actually put gladiator before bladerunner...
It's crazy to Me how many people overrate alien
Black Hawk Down
I think I read once that the opening scene in gladiator, shot in bavaria or something, the forest was scheduled to be destroyed by the government for forest management . So the film got permission to burn like 70 acres to film the opening scene.
can't take gladiator seriously since they just used the sound track from zulu.
Alien all the way.
Alien, closely followed by Blade Runner. I have all kinds of objective arguments for why Blade Runner would be better, but subjectively Alien still wins out via being more of a gut punch.
Don't know why Gladiator is even in the mix. It's a dumb action movie.
I liked gladiator the most
I watched alien for the first time recently and didn't think it was all that either. The second movie was pretty good tho
I haven't seen Blade Runner in a long, long time and it didn't leave much of a lasting impression. I also thought Gladiator was total ass. I just don't get the charm it has over so many people. Maybe it was bad timing for me to watch or something. So Alien it is.
I love sci-fi movies and I love AI and all that shit but man bladerunner knows how to take that topic and make it boring as fuck. Those movies as much as I try to like them are just not for me.
I haven't seen Gladiator in a while might watch it tonight.
Fair enough. Gladiator never did anything for me. Russell Crow meh, historian action-opera meh, Gladiators meh.
Bladerunner invented a whole new aesthetic and touched way deeper questions.
It all depends what one is looking for in the end.
Gladiator is great but that whole genre is not my thing.
1. Blade Runner
I'm not so crazy about Alien as most people
three great movies, but still an easy choice - Blade Runner.
