Phew. All this video game stuff, especially Battlefield 3 stuff, is wearing me out. Time to take a few minutes to chill, relax, watch a soothing movie where footage of modern-day Tokyo is played to the accompaniment of the Blade Runner soundtrack.


The footage, shot by Samuel Cockedey, is mostly of the Shinjuku area in central Tokyo. The music? Vangelis' haunting sci-fi score, to which most things set in the future made since 1982 owe a great debt.
