Amazing Art: Blade Runner in the style of ‘Starry Night’ by Van Gogh

Over the years I’ve collected fan-made videos and artwork that was inspired by the classic SciFi movie Blade Runner, and this latest addition is stunning.

The video below was created by Bhautik Joshi, using an advanced computer program. It’s really amazing how closely the video resembles Van Gogh’s masterpiece.

Open Culture has more info on the video if you’re interested.

Here’s a fun, new article over on Screen Rant that lists movies that should’ve gotten a sequel, but didn’t.

Movie blogger, Rob Keyes, posted this article earlier today (1-31-16), and I wanted to share it here for all my movie-lover friends.

Check out Rob’s list of movies that deserve a sequel below.
