'Blade Runner' (1982)
Ridley Scott's vision for Los Angeles circa 2019 (just nine years from now!) involved a lot of rain and not much sun. For that, the entirety of "Blade Runner" could be considered a dramatic rain scene, no matter which of the four or five versions that are floating around you're watching. But if you wanted to point out the greatest rain scene, it would be lead replicant Roy Batty's death on a rooftop in the driving rain. In a contemplative mood, he shares his final thoughts with Deckard ( Harrison Ford) in one of the film's most moving speeches: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to die."
