** Not to mention, Deckard's reputation [[spoiler:may just be implanted memories, which further [[JustifiedTrope justifies this trope.]]]]

** There is some tradition behind this. In BRAVE NEW WORLD, an elevator voice kept ordering the operator to GO DOWN. GO DOWN. GO DOWN. On the other hand, I was riding Uber last month and the GPS voice told the driver to TURN RIGHT. TURN RIGHT. TURN RIGHT. In general, if you're going to have a computer give orders to a human, you are apparently supposed to make it as irritating as possible.

* ValuesDissonance: The whole initial meeting with Zhora reeks of this, as it's treated as an IKnowYouKnowIKnow, with Deckard asking if she was asked to do anything unsavory to get her job as a stripper, and the unsavory nature of her job in general making such questions a joke. In the 21st century the view of sex workers has changed enough that such questions would actually be quite normal, making sure her consent was never violated.

** To a modern audience, the ForcefulKiss from Deckard to Rachael has overtones of DateRape, but [[SocietyMarchesOn at the time apparently nobody complained]].

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Does Rachael actually fall in love with Deckard or does she become his mistress because she knows it's the only way she can avoid being retired by other Bladerunners?

** Cuisinart went bankrupt and was bought out by a rival company, living on only as a brand name (and a joke on Film/Spaceballs).

** Atari was hammered by TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983, barely survived, and is now a shadow of its former self.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Giant buildings, neon lights, multicultural cities, film noir aesthetics, and lots and lots of rain? Meh, we've seen it all before.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Giant buildings, neon lights, multicultural cities, film noir aesthetics, and lots and lots of rain? Meh, we've seen it all before. The film's visuals and themes proved to be such an influence on CyberPunk and gritter science fiction works that its virtually impossible for them not to reference the film in some form or another, and as a consequence, the impact can be somewhat lost on audiences who have already seen the many imitators and their intellectual androids, ugly dystopias, and drunken future cops.

* EvilIsSexy: Roy and Pris. Or Zhora.

to:

* EvilIsSexy: Most of the antagonists are depicted as almost flawless beings, superior in both mind and body to normal humans (who for the most part are portrayed as grizzled and beaten down). This is especially true of Roy, who as the {{Ubermensch}} is built like a Greek god. Both of the female replicants are also quite easy on the eyes and none of them are above using sexual persuasion as a tool to get what they want (Both Priss and Roy come onto Sebastian in an attempt to persuade him to help them, and Pris. Or Zhora.Zhora is designed for political assassinations which probably involve the promise of sex as a way of getting closer to the target and she shamelessly uses her own nude body as a distraction when Deckard comes for her).
