-The Spinner is the manufacturer of the type of Police flying car in sci-fi noir movie “Blade Runner” (1982) directed by Ridley Scott that can drive as a ground car, take off vertically, hover and cruise using jet propulsion much like Vertical Take-Off and Landing aircraft today.
-These flying cars extensively by the police to survey the population, and its clear that despite restrictions wealthy people can acquire spinner licenses. The Spinner was designed by Syd Mead and has been replicated in films such as The Fifth Element and Star Wars prequel trilogy.
-By the way “Back to the Future Part II” paid homage to the Blade Runner spinner in that a garishly repainted spinner can be seen parked in a driveway. A spinner car also rests on the Hill Valley Street during the hoverboard chase.
-Another tribute to the Spinner from “Blade Runner” can be seen at various points in the Star Wars films Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Episode II: Attack of the Clones. The homage was made in part with regard to similarities between urban traffic of 2019 Los Angeles as portrayed in Blade Runner, and that of the city-planet Coruscant as depicted in the Star Wars prequels.
Blade Runner (1982): The legacy of Blade Runner is almost as important as the film itself. Countless science-fiction films have taken elements from this film (and the original novel from Phillip K. Dick) and with good reason. Director #ridleyscott and his crew craft a richly dense world in the film that sucks you in from frame one. Even without the fascinating story and the central questions posed, the film would still have been, at the very least, a cult classic. As it is (and in its “Final Cut” form), Blade Runner is a fantastic example of what mature science fiction can look like and how the genre (much like the horror genre) has a ton of flexibility in both its content and storytelling. Moving at a deliberate pace and requiring the audience’s complete attention, the film can be tough to digest on first viewing but it’s a rewarding experience, to be sure. It’s refreshing to watch a film where you can’t zone out on your phone or drift in and out. Things aren’t explained in overtly obvious ways and the film begins by dropping you into the thick of things with very little in the way of context (especially in the “Final Cut”). Performances are hard to classify as the running thread here is always: “Is this person a replicant?” #harrisonford does a solid Phillip Marlowe impression but is also able to inject a good amount of emotionality in key sequences. We also get good stuff from #seanyoung#edwardjamesolmos#memmetwalsh#darrylhannah and #joeturkel but the real star here is the great #rutgerhauer who has fantastic energy throughout here. In particular, the finale involving Ford and Hauer is exemplary. You simply cannot take your eyes off of him when he’s on screen and he, rightly, considers this some of his best work. Blade Runner isn’t an easy film to get into (I had to watch it twice to like it) but it rewards patient viewers with fantastic visuals and provocative questions about what it is to be human. Fans of serious-minded sci-fi owe this film several viewings! #movie_mattinee @oscarwatchpod @samenightmovie
