    Interesting. I wish I could get into this movie. My dad really enjoys it, but Ive never been able to bring myself to watch it. Maybe I should pick up the bluray for him.

    Blade Runner is 80's and sci-fi. That's enough to have me sold! :D

    I'll be importing the 5 Disc Blu-Ray set from the US when I get a player early next year, I can't wait to see it in action.

    The 80s were the golden age of cinema for SF and its associated genres. Its almost hard to believe that a single decade produced so many classics - Blade Runner, Wrath of Khan, Empire Strikes Back, Terminator, Predator, Aliens, Robocop, Back to the Future, Dune, The Thing and more. Thesedays were lucky if we get something decent every 2 or 3 years.

    While I completely agree with you regarding the 80's being a golden age for sci-fi cinema, I have to say that "Dune" does not wear well with age. I watched it the other night for the first time in about 15 years, and I could barely get through it. Far too much inner monologue going on, and some horrendously bad acting.

    That being said, I was only watching the standard 2 and a half hour version, I seem to remember the uber long 4 hour version being much better. It is still one of the most stylish sci-fi films I have ever seen, with everything from the Space Guild to the still suits looking very cool.

    But Kyle McClachlan as Paul Atreides... atrocious.

    I have to admit that Dune is a personal taste. I love it for the sheer spectacle of the design, production and cast reguardless of the fact that its a woeful book adaption that got murdered in the cutting room.

    Y'know I'll probably pick this up. I like that the "fixes" are barely cosmetic. Not a Greedo Shot First one.

    Not to mention the theatrical cuts are included as well?

    Although in Blade Runner's case, the lack of a video release of the theatrical cut/s after the '92 DC was made wasn't so much a case of "won't" as it was "can't"...

    I wouldn't mind the big deluxe set but it's maybe a bit pricey for what I'd spend on a DVD. And I doubt a single retailer in my area will carry it.

    FYI - from what I read online Roy Batty went online in 2 days. Which means that the Blade Runner movie ended on January 8th, 2020. We will be living during the 4 year life span of Replicant Roy! Flying cars and glowing umbrellas coming soon!

    lol.

    I love Blade Runner. It's definitely one of those cheesy sci fi movies that's just downright fun to watch. It's also definitely a staple of it's time.
