Labor Day, the swan song of summer, the last extra day off work that affords you one more long weekend before the days start to become shorter as autumn begins to arrive. While you could spend your extra day off dealing with some kind of crowded outdoor activity, you could opt for a little air-conditioned comfort and enjoying any of these movies that celebrate the joys of work that just so happen to be available on HBO NOW. After all, it’s your holiday weekend.
Ridley Scott’s classic 1982 sci-fi/noir stars Harrison Ford as Agent Deckard, a retired Blade Runner brought back into the fold and tasked with finding a quartet of Replicants, a type of fugitive android led by Rutger Hauer’s enigmatic (and terrifying) Roy Batty. It’s worth noting that this is the Theatrical Release of the film, which includes Ford’s narration.
Melanie Griffith stars as Tess McGill, a secretary for a big-name Wall Street investment bank, who proves her untapped potential by putting her own merger in place after her boss, Sigourney Weaver, suffers a broken leg . The film was nominated for multiple Academy Awards in 1988, including Best Picture, winning Best Song for Carly Simon’s “Let The River Run,” which played out during the opening credits. Harrison Ford also stars, but does not narrate.
