Film study… week 7

Blade Runner
In the year 2019, the world is full of flying cars and synthetic human replicants with a four-year lifespan work the off world planets. When four replicants escape, hijack a space ship and head back to Earth to find their maker, veteran “Blade Runner”, Deckard (Harrison Ford) must track them down and eliminate them but when he meets Rachael (Sean Young) a replicant who believes she is human, he begins to question himself. With special effects way beyond its years, this one’s a sci-fi classic.

Breach
Cocky FBI agent-wannabe Eric O’Neill (Ryan Phillipe) is given an assignment to spy on his new boss Robert Hanssen (Chris Cooper) who is suspected of selling US secrets to Russia. Hanssen quickly becomes over-involved in O’Neill’s life, causing trouble in his marriage and making him question what he really wants from life. I don’t normally like political, spy type movies but power-struggle between the characters is engrossing, and hey. Ryan Philippe’s hot!

Breakfast At Tiffany’s
When Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into a new apartment block and meets the delightful Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn), his entire life is turned upside down. Holly lives a whirlwind socialite life of charming people to get what she needs and Paul is a struggling writer, kept by his older, married lover, both are attempting to avoid reality. Holly is absolutely useless but it’s impossible not to fall in love with her and Audrey Hepburn is so luminous that you could stare at her all day. Stunning!

And I said, "what about Breakfast At Tiffany's?" She said, "I think I remember the film and if I recall I think we both kinda liked it."

Brother Bear
When selfish Kenai, seeks revenge on the bear that killed his older brother, he himself is turned into a bear by his older brother’s spirit. Told by the tribe’s shamen to seek help where the sky talks to the earth, he is unhappy to find the only guide at his disposal is a talkative bear cub, Koda,  that has been separated from his mother. Obviously through spending time with Koda, Kenai learns the value of his totem, love. What can I say, I don’t do Disney and this one was particularly unfunny. Bleh.
