“Tears in Rain” (ook bekend als de “C-Beams Speech”) is een monoloog geleverd door personage Roy Batty (geportretteerd door Rutger Hauer) in de 1982 Ridley Scott-film Blade Runner. Geschreven door David Peoples en gewijzigd door Hauer van de scriptregels in de avond voor het filmen, de monoloog wordt vaak geciteerd; criticus Mark Rowlands beschreef het als “misschien wel de meest ontroerende death monoloog in filmische history”. De spraak verschijnt als het laatste nummer op het soundtrackalbum van de film.

De stervende replicant Roy Batty levert de lijnen aan Rick Deckard, wiens leven Batty net heeft gered, ondanks het feit dat Deckard werd gestuurd om hem te beëindigen. Het tafereel speelt zich af tijdens een zware stortbui van regen, vlak voor Batty’s eigen dood. Nadenkend over zijn ervaringen en dreigende sterfte zegt hij (met dramatische pauzes tussen elke uitspraak):

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Blade Runner – Final scene, Tears in Rain Monologue (HD)"Tears in rain" (also known as the "C-Beams Speech") is a monologue delivered by character Roy Batty (portrayed by Rutger Hauer) in the 1982 Ridley Scott film Blade Runner. Written by David Peoples and altered by Hauer from the scripted lines the night before filming, the monologue is frequently quoted;[5] critic Mark Rowlands described it as "perhaps the most moving death soliloquy in cinematic history".The dying replicant Roy Batty delivers the lines to Rick Deckard, whose life Batty has just saved, despite the fact that Deckard was sent to terminate him. The scene occurs during a heavy downpour of rain, moments before Batty's own death. Reflecting on his experiences and imminent mortality he says (with dramatic pauses between each statement):I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Video games have been a common thread throughout my life for many decades, and even today it is still one of my biggest passions. In addition, I am not only delighted to play games and to take a critical look at it, but also to talk about it in a straightforward manner with like-minded people.
