Blade Runner Apreciation Thread
#71
I just took a look at my 4K UHD of BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT

It contains the 4K UHD disc and a blu-ray disc of THE FINAL CUT. No other versions of the film are included on disc.

The other two discs are DVDs of DANGEROUS DAYS and the enhancement archive.

I also got the expensive Japanese KILL BILL set that had a T-shirt and a tiny sword!

I still have that as well. I believe the Briefcase Edition also came in Blu and HD-DVD?

A disagreement!  

I prefer the International Theatrical Cut.

I appreciate what the DC and FC are doing, but I think Ridley Scott second-guesses himself too much. It was fine in its original form.

I like the noir voiceover and the "happy" ending has never bothered me.  Sometimes the studios are right.

I still like the Workprint the best.

According to the special features, Guillermo Del Toro prefers the theatrical with voice over, and still watches it on laserdisc.

Del Toro has the right idea.

Not on Beta?

Frank Darabont's rant about the theatrical cut voiceover:





On the other hand, the bad ending offers us some of the only Stanley Kubrick outtake footage we'll ever see, so its existence isn't totally without merit.

It adds back in the violence and cleans up some of the special FX without feeling obtrusive. It's my favorite version.

The DC was the first version I saw, so seeing the theatrical version for the first time from the 2007 Blu Ray edition was very jarring. 

Having said that, if the theatrical version was without any merit, there would've been no cult following in the first place.

Well, you know, he got the four-year itch.

Maybe he only remembers being married and/or divorced.

What’s awesome about Blade Runner 2049 is it managed to be a sequel to both endings of Blade Runner. And either way, Rachel dies a year later in childbirth.
