Blade Runner

Took some time to watch our Blade Runner Director's Cut DVD. Ridley Scott's masterpiece is just as cool as I recalled from seeing it quite some time ago. The effects were still grand and helped create the lavish environment for the tale - it certainly is one of the signature elements of the film. There didnt seem to be that many changes from the original release, though I actually miss Deckard's voice over. The characters are wonderful and the tale full of thought and meaning - just as I recalled. It is often the simple things that stick though, Deckard's broken fingers and him clambering up onto the roof in the rain - stuck forever!!

Love the film.
