A sad day as another Screen Icon leaves us.

We were only discussing him in work yesterday.

75 years is better than 4 as a Replicant however.

Rest in peace and thanks for the memories.

A great actor who I couldn't take my eyes off. R.I.P. Mr. Hauer.

Tears in the rain.

Ugh that's a gut punch.
I loved him. Ladyhawke is still one of my favorite movies.
Very sad day indeed.

This is not so very nice news today.. although he died the 19th acording to link OP. He was my hero Floris when I was about 5 years of age.. (tit bit... in the series Floris Paul Verhoeven is the director...an other very succesful hollywood name)

When I first met him he was a knight.. Being dutch myself... We live on a little piece of land between the UK and Germany and if one of us is making it big in the world it is quite the acomplishment. We notice and give them all our support.



Rust wel ridder. (rest in peace knight)

For the really interested fans a docu about the mans first adventures with cinema and acting. Its dutch but as you know there is always the YT translate option.

The YouTube insert doesn't work so HERE is the link to YouTube.

Sad. A great talent.

My wife and I had a realization the other day to the effect that:
Back in the day, my parents could be heard saying........"they don't make movies like they used to".

Today, "we say" ................."they don't make movies anymore". Well, truthfully, they don't make movies for adults anymore.

The Hollywood star making machine is dead. Saw an article the other day wherein it was proffered that Hollywood's last "Movie Actor" was Leonardo di Caprio. I guess that means the last actress was Angelina Joli.

One of my favorite movie scenes of all time.....

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die....."

Unfortunately is was Rutger's time...all too soon. RIP

The Hollywood Reporter says that he improvised the speech!!

How cool is that?!!

The man just grew in my eyes by learning that!

R.I.P.

Yes...partly....

He changed a few lines from the original, improvised as you say, and i think he didn't tell Ridley Scott either.
That's another reason why i love this scene so much...


One earlier version in Peoples' draft screenplays was:

I’ve known adventures, seen places you people will never see, I’ve been Offworld and back… frontiers! I’ve stood on the back deck of a blinker bound for the Plutition Camps with sweat in my eyes watching stars fight on the shoulder of Orion… I’ve felt wind in my hair, riding test boats off the black galaxies and seen an attack fleet burn like a match and disappear. I’ve seen it, felt it…![8]

And, the original script, before Hauer's rewrite, was:

I’ve seen things… seen things you little people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion bright as magnesium… I rode on the back decks of a blinker and watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments… they’ll be gone.[9]

Apparently that Bladerunner monologue was an ad lib.

A great one... sad.

A class actor, likely missed by more than a few generations. R.I.P.

I noticed that a bit late (combo written and part ad lib) but I also liked what I stated so left it and got busy doing other things.

Thanks for the clarification and original script!



It is such a pivotal point. Some have gone way out into the field to try and explain it. The over dubbed version offers very little more (don't like that version anyway). And I think he (Hauer) put it along the lines of, "I've lived a full life. How much life have you lived? Where do the memories of this life go? ('Wake up' [as a command to Deckard. Unspoken. It is like the scream from RATM song.]) 'Time to die'", that facing death is what it means to be living: Roy shows Deckard how to be alive.

But that is my simple explanation!

Actually, I'd say it's about average. Most people are not doing too well by the time they're in their 70s. To say the least. Some might live much longer but probably half of them are constantly fighting health problems.

You might think a celebrity has access to better healthcare and therefore should live longer but the reality is that a lot of them live hard. If you could afford to party every day of your life, why wouldn't you?
