    Rutger Hauer - RIP

    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.

    indeed...

    It is an odd bit of synchronicity that Roy Batty, his character in Blade Runner, also died in 2019 (per the movie).

    RIP Rutger.
    Thanks for all the moments, that won't be lost in time...

    Highly recommend checking out some of his early Dutch work in the films of Paul Verhoeven, specifically:

    SPETTERS
    SOLDIER OF ORANGE
    "Man, we killin' elephants in the back yard..."

    Oh, and don't forget his role in Ladyhawke! I love that cheesy movie but Hauer made it better than it deserved to be, which is actually true of a lot of films he was in.

    Did not know that he wrote that "tears in he rain" line in a change to scripted longer soliloquy.

    THE BLOOD OF HEROES, which was written and directed by David Webb Peoples, the co-screenwriter of Bladerunner, is a pretty damn good, low bidget sci-fi B-movie, as well.

    I regret to say that I haven't seen all of those so thanks for mentioning them. Will need to brush up on the Hauer filmography! Hitcher was good. I also remember liking Flesh+Blood.

    Always liked his 80s action flick, Wanted: Dead or Alive. Had the great Fuck The Bonus ending with the bad guy Gene Simmons ( yeah, that Gene Simmons).
