First off, I’d like to thank everyone here who supported me in last month’s Movie of the Month Champions contest over at the Large Association of Movie Blogs (The Lamb). With your votes, not only was “Blade Runner” victorious, but the poll recorded more votes than it ever had previously. We set the new record… I believe that just shy of 200 people wound up voting. I’m really really grateful that so many of you went out of your way to help me out by voting, and I needed to lead this post with a huge THANK YOU.
To the victor go the spoils! And in this case, that means a full podcast on one of my favorite movies of all time, Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner”. Lambcast host Dylan Fields of Man I Love Films, Steve Honeywell of 1001Plus, Max Covill of Impassioned Cinema, and I break down the movie – what makes it great, what place it holds in cinema, what our favorite parts and characters are, what we think of the numerous different versions, a breakdown of the themes, etc. It’s a very thorough discussion, covering one of the greatest films of all time. I think it came out really well.
If you’d like to listen to this episode, you can stream it and/or download it directly to your computer here, on the Lamb’s podomatic page. You can also search for it on iTunes under the Lambcast. I hope you listen, and hope you enjoy. I know that I had a great time recording it, and look forward to being able to do more Lambcasts in the future with my fellow Lamb members!
