    think you get the message, but it's not only one of the greatest sci fi films ever made, but one of my favorite films of all time, full stop.

    Beautiful imagery, superb cast, brilliant script and a plot, with sub plot upon sub plot.

    I'd be really interested to know what your thoughts were once you've seen it- but absolutely get the directors cut. You'll be missing out on quite a few layers of the story otherwise.

    Put it this way, if my local cinema put it on tomorrow, i'd cancel everything and go watch it.

    My thoughts exactly. Blade Runner truly is a sci-fi masterpiece... one for the ages.

    I agree with whomever said to watch the director's cut. There is also the "Final Cut", which is also very good, but the director's cut is more ambiguous and allows you to think for yourself.

    By read do you mean read: [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Androids_Dream_of_Electric_Sheep%3F"]Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?[/URL] I would recommend the book too but the film barely references it in my opinion.

    Personally I'd suggest getting "The Final Cut" version over "The Director's Cut" but to be honest which you prefer will come down to a matter of opinion. Although the Final Cut has better quality sound and video and is available on BluRay if that matters.

    I was more referring to reading just general opinions and stuff about the film, seeing as he wasn't much aware of the culture surrounding it.

    If you have recently seen Prometheus, watch Bladerunner to make yourself feel better.

    I have just created a trial of Love Film so I can watch this. You guys do realize you have hyped it up to sky high levels?

    I expect great things

    Now all I got to do is wait for for the Royal Mail.

    Edit: I am getting the directors cut by the way.

    just wait until night, ideally when raining/stormy, turn all the lights off, get a whiskey and then sit down, uninterrupted for the film. Kick everyone else out of the house, this is something to savor.

    You know, i kind of envy you, being able to watch it all again for the first time.

    Just think of it as a sci-fi detective noir. Don't go into it expecting anything else and it'll all go well for you (not trying to hedge the greatness of the film here, just suggesting the 'right' mindset to get the most out of it).

    Then come back here and discuss!!

    There's also an old adventure game based on the films setting that was quite good.
