    It's been mentioned in the general RIP thread, but I think he deserves his own thread really. RIP Rutger.

    A fabulous scene. From one of the greatest movies of all time imo.



    Other notable films were Nighthawks, Ladyhawke, The Hitcher and Blind Fury, to name a few

    Shyt buzz, one of the greats from my childhood, watched Blind Fury ad nauseam as a young fella.

    Ironically he died in 2019 in that film as well

    A much underrated actor who never quite got the acclaim, plaudits or roles he deserved. Maybe he was hard to work with, but I have always been surprised Blade Runner didn't lead to greater things. RIP

    What was the film where they played a game using a skull in a post apoplectic type world?

    My favorite scene from my favourite movie , a scene I’ll probably watch repeatedly over the next few evenings and try to capture the awe I felt when I first watched it back when the film was released in the 80s - ironic that he actually died in 2019 as well ;
    Fabulous actor who could portray menace and intelligence in the roles he was given , you couldn’t take your eyes off him when he was on the screen ....
    Moments lost in time indeed Rutger , but you gave them to us and i’ll remember them forever , thank you and RIP.

    Are you questioning my spelling? Lol. Found it, it's called The Blood of heros. Off to watch it now. RIP Rutger Hauer.

    You are right. It was called Salute of the Jugger as well.

    Will always be remembered for his 3 episode arc in the Dave sitcom 'Porters'.

    Sad to hear.

    When I think if Rutger Hauer I immediately think of being in video shops in the 80s.

    Loved Blade Runner obviously, but many other films too like The Hitcher, Wanted Dead or Alive, Osterman Weekend, Blind Fury, Breed Apart etc.

    Ah man, screen legend... RIP.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,221 Jurgen The German


    Was thinking about it and completely had forgotten my favourite movie with him, Hobo With A Shotgun!!

    Saw it in the IFI during their monthly "Friday night frights" run a number of years ago with a raucous late night crowd. Absolutely brilliant throwback to the gory grind house features of yore and a screen eating turn from himself.

    Yea me too. It’s been on repeat on the SciFi channel on sky - have it recorded.

    Would have been interested to see his portrayal of Lestat in Interview with a Vampire...

    RIP.

    Blade Runner - stone cold classic. Thought The Hitcher was a bit silly and derivative. Was menacing as the Cardinal in Sin City.

    Oddly enough, the first film I remember seeing him in was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It also starred another actor we lost this year, Luke Perry.

    RIP

    One of the best horror movies of all time, especially those without huge gore/violence. Hauer could do creepy characters so well.
