haven't seen that one.
I don't even think I've seen the "director's cut"
mine was chock full of unnecessary voice-over narration.

what's funny is it's on that obsolete 'high def' dvd.

Much less embarrassing without the narration (Director's Cut version)

Also isn't the ending different in the original release? As in, a happy ending as opposed to the book.

Kinda like tears in rain, if you ask me.

I've only ever seen the Director's and Final Cuts.

Bought the latter on blu-ray, have no idea what the film would be like with "narration". Still love it and the soundtrack.

the narration dumbs it way down for sure
avoiding the original theatrical version is a good idea
final cut is the most enjoyable

It's alright. Some nice imagery. Japanese cities. Sean Young being a babe.
Hardly the masterpiece people make it out to be, and not much to do with the novel or Philip K Dick.
And before you ask, no he's not a replicunt.

Err, it's set in LA? Opening shot of the city, title - "Los Angeles 2019".

I believe the theory behind this future vision is that the Asian economies more or less dominate the world, so America looks more like Tokyo, or Chinatown in LA has expanded to absorb most of the city, while pollution has driven most of the richer/healthier population emigrates to off-world colonies.

I do remember you saying you did not like the soundtrack a while ago, I guess the film didn't leave as strong an impression on you mate. I fucking love it.
