Blade Runner was such a predictive film. No, not about the "replicants". We aren't close to building anything like that. But about the LA of the future. He nailed that. LA today looks pretty much as depicted in the film 35 years ago.

Which version of the 1982 Blade Runner should I watch? There are apparently seven versions [wikipedia.org]. Based on my brief research, the Final Cut is what I am leaning towards.

Other than what I saw in the Blade Runner 2049 trailer, I know almost nothing about the original film. (I was not yet born when it was released.) I do want to watch the original because I'll be watching the new one in theaters.

Thank you,
Tofu Vic

I still like the original theatrical release. To us old farts that remember the days before "streaming" and cable with 600 billion channels, if it wasn't on the 3 broadcast TV stations then you couldn't watch it. But I did have Blade Runner on Laserdisc. So it stayed there 24/7 and when I couldn't find anything worth watching after scouring all 3 broadcast stations, I would crank up Blade Runner.

I think the consensus amongst BR fans, is that the version to watch is the final cut. The one for this deal.

Thank you!

I missed all the great movies of the 80s and most from the 90s due to my age. In the last couple years, I have finally started watching some of them, and Blade Runner is one I have meant to watch for years. I'm glad the sequel finally pushed me to actually watch it.

Are you excited for Blade Runner 2049?

I am. Looks to be great. The reviews for it all say it's right up there with the original. They also say that the trailers don't really give a feel for what the movie actually is, by design. They want people to walk in fresh.

I would watch the original and the two shorts that fill in the gap between the original and the new movie to get the full experience.

PS: Bladerunner bombed at the box office. It was a failure. It didn't come into it's own until it came out on tape and disk. Then it went cult. But it's one of those rare films that has held up over time. Many films look dated, like Star Wars. Bladerunner though... they could have made it last year.

I'm excited for you! Sometimes, I want sequels and reboots to be good simply so that people who enjoyed the originals decades ago can enjoy the new ones, too. This is one of those cases.

Thanks for the trivia; I had no idea.

Star Wars is another series I have to watch at some point. The only movie in that series I have watched is Attack of the Clones, which was boring to me. I gotta watch them from the beginning at some point so that I can watch the newer ones; it just seems a bit daunting and time-consuming because there are so many movies in the Star Wars series now.

I noticed that some movie theaters will be showing Blade Runner: The Final Cut and double features w/ the new movie.

AMC Theatres, Regal, & Cinemark all seem to be doing it.

Want to watch it but reviews seem to be very hit or miss.

I saw this movie and it's not one you watch with your friends while eating, etc. You really have to pay attention with what's going on or the plot won't make much sense.
