Journal Response #5 – Blade Runner

Comparing this film to the novel is like comparing an apple to an orange. Though It has some familiar scenes and text from the novel & being able to see it in picture as opposed to reading it in detail is great, they are some parts that separated it from the novel. For one, the setting is dark & rainy with a crowded feeling as opposed to a more open spaced setting in the book. Another is the animals from the film are not shown to indicate status but are present to show value and rarity. In the novel, the animals represented your status and your place among others. The last problem that I had a issue with & had no impact was the voit kmap test, which was used twice in the film, didn’t show any valuable merit to indicate an android when in the novel when Rick used it showed throughout the novel how the test was used to show the personality of these androids.
