опять про смешные переводы названий фильмов

Меня всегда поражало и забавляло, чем думают переводчики фильмов с английского на русский. От чего они такие ленивые, мало платят? 

То вполне устоявшееся словосочетание "true grit" (настоящий характер)  переведут как "железная хватка", то призыв 60-х "Аpocalypse now!" (Даешь Апокалипс!)  переводят как "Апокалипс наших дней" (?) причем тут наши дни?
Сегодня читаю, что  название культового футуристического боевика "Blade Runner"  перевели как "Бегущий по лезвию" с какого бодуна? 

Я так понимаю переводчики  они только переводят и презирают Толковые Словари и плевать хотели на здравый смысл.
Словосочетание blade runner  было введено  в романе Алана Нурс (1974) где он описал подпольного торговца нелегальными хирургическими инструментами.  Слово runner на сленге означает того кто ведет бизнес в тени, вне закона и регулирующих правил.  По сути главный герой и есть такой персонаж, оперуполномоченный по особым поручениям, наемный убийца на службе государства.

Слэнг:

What does the term "Blade Runner" mean?

In the film, the term "Blade Runner" is used to describe police detectives who specifically hunt replicants. In reality, the term is not used in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Deckard is referred to simply as a bounty hunter. It originated in the 1974 Alan Nourse novel The Bladerunner, where a blade runner is a person who sells illegal surgical instruments. In 1979, William S. Burroughs was commissioned to write a screenplay based on the Nourse book. The script was not picked up, but it was published as a novella entitled Blade Runner (a movie). Hampton Fancher was familiar with Blade Runner (a movie), and suggested the title to director Ridley Scott who loved it and who purchased the rights to the phrase.
