The shining, now that was a scary movie. Me and my friend drove to the city to see that in the theater, my friend had already read the book. I still remember those creepy twins.

Blade Runner was good. "wake up, time to die" still remember that line. I recently watched the remake. Meh.

The book was so much better, in my opinion.  Then again, the movie was quite different than the book.  The movie was still very good, though, and quite creepy.  I saw it when I was a kid and it scared the heck out of me.  

 

I'm actually looking forward to seeing the Blade Runner sequel when it's on HBO or Starz or something.  Of the original I have the four disc Ultimate Cut on DVD.

Love Blade Runner. So many classic lines and a classic cast.

 

Edit: Many people think David Lynch ruined Dune... I feel the same about BR as I do Dune... awesome cast, and quite a few memorable lines.

I loved The Shining.  Super creepy.  I didn't like that kid, though.

I read Dune and saw the movie. Loved both.  The story Blade Runner is based on is very different from the movie -- the replicants, for one, aren't sympathetic at all; they're really psychotic.  The  movie softened them a lot.
