Response for the movie Blade Runner

I did not get the comments for the 1st paper, therefore I wrote this response. Not very clearly, I will makeup it.

  I never watched this kind of movie before. I watched this movie two times at home. It’s really difficult to understand and get the main points of it. I thought this is a science movie about man-made robots. It seems to be the conflict stems from the inherently human ability to feel. These robots are created with a purpose to serve their human master, and they are obedient four years of their life, and they just do what master told. However the robots develop emotions, and these problems are arise. The androids in Blade Runner look identical to humans, however they are faster, stronger, and more agile. The androids obtain memories that were implanted in their brains to compensate for their short life span and lack of experiences. It seems as though the androids are equal, if not superior to humans. The ability to be conscious is unexplainable, yet all humans or persons are classified as being conscious. These inhuman androids want to feel and see feeling have a privilege, and they wish they have a power like a lot of romantic comedies with real human seem to want to do the opposite.

     “Six killer Nexus-6 replicants have escaped from slavery in a distant world and have found passage back to earth. But this is not the earth we know. It is dark, wet and crowded. It is all cement, skyscrapers and slums. There is no greenery. People now stay on earth only if they cannot afford to buy their way off-world. The whole earth, then, is a low-life ghetto. When making the film, the director and producers were fearful of ecological concerns, over-population of the earth, and the death of animal life, and this is evident in this grim futuristic setting.”

    In Blade Runner the differences between human and robots have grown so thin that a fictional mechanical device, the test is required to distinguish them. In the film, Eldon Tyrell informs us that the device measures such things as “capillary dilation of the so-called blush response, fluctuation of the pupil and involuntary dilation of the iris”, in reaction to a series of psychological questions calculated to elicit emotional responses. The differences in the reactions between humans and Replicants provide the means by which they can be identified. The Nexus-6 Replicants, however, have been designed with a four year life span because it is feared that after this time they will begin to develop their own emotional responses, thus making them indistinguishable from human beings by any means.
