The universe of Blade Runner versus Star Trek

So first of all we have the Blade Runner universe that for me is one of the main dystopian worlds that comes to mind, certainly it may not actually be the best example however it certainly is one of the more popular. In the film there is an almost oppressive backdrop enforced by the constant gloom and the weather. There is little left of nature, even the animals are all robots and there is the ever present police. Rather than explain in any great detail the nature of the Blade Runner universe the atmosphere throughout allows us to form our impressions through the imagery.

Me I much prefer the dysfunctional world of Blade Runner, although I quite like Scottie.

I mistook Blade runner for No Blade of grass. I am not into science fiction, but I like Mad Max . It impacted me so much that I refuse to was motor sports or any sports that burn up gasoline.
