RIP Rutger Hauer
« on: Wednesday 24 July 2019, 08:53:39 PM »
Loved him in Bladerunner, The Hitcher, and Flesh and Blood. One of the great antihero actors of his generation.

What a bummer.
Not one of the cool kids, and really insecure about it.

Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.
The are both white, both intellects, both middle class, both the typical 'people who would have thought could never do such a thing ', all traits of a Psychopath.

My favorite Blade Runner anecdote is that nobody knows where the f*** he got the dove, he just showed up for filming with it. I really hope it’s not just internet bullshit, because it’s great.

RIP.

His performance as John Ryder in The Hitcher is still imo by far his best, a forgotten film by all accounts now but a brilliant piece of cinema.

If you haven't seen it, you must and don't get it mixed up with the pile of s*** Sean Bean one.

If you haven't seen Flesh and Blood (The Sword and The Rose), that one is quite underrated. He's always good as an anti-hero.

I also liked him in 'Nighthawks' with Sylvester Stallone and Billy Dee Williams.

'Blind Fury' was also good fun.
Thier is not a word. "Their" is the correct spelling.

Mentioned it in the other thread - it’s still ace :lol:.

I quite liked Ladyhawke too, but I was probably 16 when I last watched it.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Not quite sure I've ever heard someone describe Blade Runner as cheesy fun, but, to each their own.

Ahhh sad news. Blade Runner was such an amazing movie and he was great in it, but one of my fave films he was in was a low budget thing called Salute of the Jugger. Man I loved that film when I was young. Need to go find it now for another watch. RIP Mr Hauer.

He was the true star of Bladerunner. Thought it was an outstanding performance. Never bettered as a 'bad guy' in that role. The little nuances, the facial expressions, the way he used his voice. Thought he managed an incredible combination of both being dramatic and also submarineling the part when needed. Was perfection as Roy Batty.

For clarification, I wasn't referring to Blade Runner.  I meant his run of cheesy straight to video movies of the 80s.

That was a pretty good movie.
