Best mashup trailer ever? Best mashup trailer ever

Mark sent me this yesterday, because he knows what I like.

It makes more sense than you might think.  Both The Big Lebowski and Blade Runner are, of course, experiments in recontextualizing hard-boiled noir in the vein of Chandler.  Both are stories of men who just want to get on with their lives in peace, but cannot escape the intrigues of the shadowy figures using them as catspaws.  One just happens to be a stoner comedy while the other is science fiction.  And (by no coincidence, giving how passionately I love Raymond Chandler) they’re two of my favorite movies.

Also, Rutger Hauer saying “unt tomorrow ve come back unt ve cut off your johnson” is so perfect, it still doubles me over with laughter whenever I see it.
