Masterpiece of sci-fi. An epic,rain-soaked noir-film set in a Dystopian future. This is my favorite movie ever, and I can rewatch it again and again. The movie has outstanding cinematography,excellent plot, and deep,complex themes.

My favorite movie. This one is almost perfect (if not perfect). Every time i watch it i fall deep in the story and i wake up from a dream as a complete fresh man.

Painfully boring. Not much of a plot. I don't know why people like this movie. Even if this movie had modern day special effects it would still suck.

A Great film with great visuals and great philosophy, themes and incredebly analyzable. Unfortunately a lot of people doesn't get it but it is more of an intellectual film for intelligent people. Definetily is one of the best films of all time

Easily one of the best movies ever made. Its meticulousness and use of tension is top par and as always (for Ridley Scott movies) the visuals are fantastic.

Outstanding in so many ways. Thought-provoking, atmospheric, masterfully directed and crafted. Also captures emotion of characters extremely well. Possibly the best sci-fi ever made.

Finally saw Blade Runner (the final cut is the version I watch out of the 28 that's been put together in the last 35 years). It's visually inspiring and there's a lot of commentary about social class and the idea about trying to hold on to life did add a lot to the film. Although, the story was very disjointed. There's two plot lines going on at the time that didn't complement each other until the last 10 minutes (and I did love the climax and the final monologue in the rain but there's no emotional weight to it. You need Roy and Deckard to have a confrontation during the film and not just come together in a shootout towards the end!). And the characters, especially the main love story, lacked any substance. Anyway, it's still a solid 6/10 despite my story complaints!

But, I did watch 2049 today and LOVED IT! There's emotional weight and also intellectual themes! I gave the original a 6/10 and 2049 is a 9/10!

OK,re- watching Blade Runner for the first time in more than 20 years and having all kinds of problems with it, TBH. Deckard is a monster, replicant or not. In film noir it's often the case that they're all bad guys, but this movie only works if Roy is the hero/anti-hero and Deckard the villain. Giving a rapist a redemption arc, and Deckard is a rapist, just doesn't sit.

I hope BR2049 understands what the original got wrong. If it does, there's a hole in my sci-fi pantheon that this re-watch of the original has created, which the sequel has an opportunity to fill. It could be the movie teenage me thought the original was: one that thoughtfully, skillfully uses the medium (making use of the library of noir and sci-fi tropes) to explore philosophical dilemmas of humanity, identity, & mortality. If the baked-in misogyny of the original isn't addressed though, the sequel is just going to end up feeling like a prolonged rape apologia.
