Hilarious 1982 BLADE RUNNER Executive Notes - They Hated It

Movie Blade Runner by Joey Paur

Ridiely Scott's sci-fi film Blade Runner has become a cult classic since it was first released in 1982, but when it first opened a lot of people weren't sure what to think of it. It didn't get the best reviews either. The movie was just ahead of its time. 

Before the movie even officially opened the executives who funded the film, Jerry PerenchioBud Yorkin, and Robin French of Tandem Productions gave some notes on the movie revealing that they didn't really care for it. They called it dreadfully dull and confusing, among several other complaints. Many of these are actually pretty funny considering the movie is now such a classic. Check out the full list of Blade Runner insults below. One of my favorites is, "This picture gets duller every time we see it."
