110 // Reviewing Blade Runner: Origins #1 through #8

December 7, 2021

Blade Runner: Origins is one of the boldest, most innovative storylines we've seen in all of Blade Runner to date. A story about identity, selfhood, family, and fate, Origins has struck a chord with fandom as a powerful new lens for exploring this world we love so much.

In this episode, Patrick and Contributing Host Peter from the Midwest take a deep look at the first eight issues of Origins. How does this prequel stack up to the original film? How does it compare to the other Titan comics to date? What does it contribute to the Blade Runner conversation?

106 // A Memory of Past and Future: Track By Track - Exploring Vangelis | Part Two (A 700 Layer Cake Part 16)

September 28, 2021

Vangelis’ score for Blade Runner remains a high-water mark in film score history. Expressive, darkly dramatic, full of undertones of film noir and an imagined future, his soundtrack is just as iconic as the film itself. 

In this episode, Jaime, Patrick, and new Contributing Host Dr. Robin Bunce go track by track through the 1994 Warner release. Although it deviates significantly from the score as it appears in the film, it’s the version many of us know best—and the one you’ll find available most readily on streaming platforms. (Never fear: we will return to analyze other editions in future episodes!)

So pull up the 1994 version, give it a listen, and join us as we dive very, very deeply into this richly textured masterwork.

105 // If Memory Had A Melody: The Score For 2049 (You‘ve Never Seen A Miracle: The Journey to 2049 Part Eleven)

September 14, 2021

When we heard there was going to be a second Blade Runner film, most of us immediately wanted to know two things: who was going to direct it, and who was going to write the soundtrack.

Vangelis’ score for the 1982 film is a watershed moment in film score history, and for good reason. The music for Blade Runner 2049 would have to be special indeed to earn its place alongside its forerunner.

Lucky for us, Ben Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer delivered more than most of us could’ve dreamed for 2049. And in this episode, Jaime and Patrick dive deeply into that music, examining how it was made—and why, perhaps, it was made that way.
