Meet the three Blade Runner producers who hated Blade Runner

If you ever needed proof that Hollywood studio executives have no idea how to make good movies, please, look no further these screening notes from a pre-release viewing of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. Because these professional movie producers absolutely hated the film, which is now acknowledged as not just as a scifi masterpiece, but one of the greatest films of all time.

Above is the collection of "notes" three executives from Tandem Productions made for the film after a screening in January of 1982, found by Reddit. Admittedly, most of the notes are some variation on "I hate this movie and I hate it worse every time I have to see it" variety, which might not be considered particularly helpful.


On the other hand, they did hate the voice-over... which they made Ridley Scott include and Harrison Ford record in the first place. So I guess that's kind of a wash.
