* {{Foreshadowing}}: During Rachel's reply about the nude photo on the bedroom wall, the phrase "... bush outside your window? Orange body, green legs?" from later in the movie can be faintly heard[[note]]and is even officially present in the subtitles[[/note]]. This foreshadows Rachel [[spoiler:failing the test]], Tyrell giving the information about the spider to Deckard a few minutes thereafter off-screen, and Deckard actually using the phrase later in the movie. Besides, this [[spoiler:"implants a memory" into the audience]].

''Blade Runner'' is a [[GenreBusting genre-bending]] 1982 ScienceFiction film starring Creator/HarrisonFord, Creator/RutgerHauer, Creator/SeanYoung, Creator/EdwardJamesOlmos and Creator/DarylHannah, that borrows stylistic elements from FilmNoir and HardboiledDetective fiction. Set in a [[{{Dystopia}} dystopian]] [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture near-future]] CityNoir version of Los Angeles, it established much of the tone and flavour of the CyberPunk movement and the film style of [[TheFutureIsNoir Tech Noir]]. It is a highly intelligent film, visually stunning, meticulously detailed and features a seriously great script.

* AsYouKnow: Bryant's briefing of Deckard at the start of the film is rife with this, as Bryant explains to the ''seasoned Replicant hunter'' the ins-and-outs of Replicant psychology and longevity.

** The aerial shot of the Tyrell Building is used a total of four times in the film. The first stands out for taking place in total darkness; the other three all happen in daytime.

''Blade Runner'' was loosely based on the Creator/PhilipKDick novel ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep'', with Dick's approval. The title itself comes from the novel ''The Bladerunner'' by Alan E. Nourse.[[note]]though in a roundabout fashion; the writer Hampton Fancher, took it from the Creator/WilliamSBurroughs book ''Blade Runner: A Movie'', an unfilmed script which was originally meant to be a treatment of Nourse's novel but became its own novella.[[/note]] Other than the title, the movie has nothing to do with ''The Bladerunner''. It just [[RuleOfCool sounded cool]].

Not to disappoint anyone, but no one [[BladeRun runs on blades]] in this movie.

A sequel, titled ''Film/BladeRunner2049'', is due to release in 2017. ''Series/TotalRecall2070'', despite the name, is also loosely based on this film.

* StockSoundEffects: The background sound in Deckard's apartment is the same as in the dark corridor of Bespin in which Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker have a lightsaber duel in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
