I remember this episode like it was yesterday. I remember that Roger recommended it because of the special effects. I was too young to seen Blade Runner at the time, but I really wanted to. I was a big Harrison Ford fan at the time, being that Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark was his previous films. Blade Runner was to become one of my favorite films.

Would you please tag all the movies in an episode, it would make it easier to find reviews. Right now if you search for, say, Eight Minutes To Midnight, it doesn’t return anything. Other than that a big thank you for uploading the episodes!

Love Diner. Never understood the appeal of Blade Runner, but then again, I only saw the Director’s Cut. You know, without the voiceover. So maybe the other is better.

Isn’t the director’s cut supposed to be the better version?

I saw the movie when it came out in the theater in 1982, so I am use to hearing Harrison Ford’s voice in the background. When I saw the special edition or director’s cut in the theater, I was put-offwhen I DID NOT hear Ford’s voice. For me, the original is more enjoyable.

It upsets me when others criticize Ebert for giving The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West and Blade Runner negative reviews at the time of their release. Times Change, Ebert now acknowlages their brilliance.

I think you mean Gene. Ebert just gave Blade Runner a mildly positive review and after checking his website he gave The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly a positive writeup on its release.

I feel like these two are the only guys in the world who ever agreed with me about "Blade Runner". I love science fiction (I first saw the movie in a university science fiction film class) and I found it really disappointing. Boring characters and a boring story. Only the movie’s production design, special effects, and make-up impressed me.

Ebert reluctantly gave "Blade Runner" three stars eventually, as he basically caved because of its popularity. Even in his review of the final cut acknowledging its status as a ’classic’ now, he asked why Ridley Scott kept tinkering with "Blade Runner" for so many years before releasing the final cut if it was so great in the first place. Ebert should have just stuck to his guns and maintained that it’s not as great as most people say.

This is one of the reasons that Ebert was the better writer of his review, while Siskel was the better critic.

No, the director’s cut is head and shoulders over the one displayed in cinema.

Blade Runner The Final Cut is the best version.

re: BR, apart from the taking out the voice-over, adding in the unicorn sequence, and removing the ’happy ending’, the director’s cut is not that different from the original theatrical release.

i think what comments here are referring to is what ’Archer’ referenced in his comment: ’The Final Cut’ is the best version, fixing both plot holes and sfx gaffes, and remastering the entire film - THAT’S the version to see (and hear - BR has always had a tremendous soundscape).

But he didn’t give negative reviews to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly or Blade Runner

I found an interesting site that has Polaroid shots of Sean Young while in makeup for Blade Runner http://www.retronaut.co/2011/06/blade-runner-polaroids-by-sean-young-1981/

Blade Runner sucks. OK...well to be fair it’s alright. I’ve seen all three versions and neither version has impressed me to this day except as Ebert mentioned and gave high marks for were for the visuals. Yes the visuals is a masterpiece too bad the characters couldn’t do justice to the material.

Blade Runner’s 30th anniversary June 25 1982! Gene and Roger loved Diner and Chan is missing. They did not like Eight Minutes To Midnight. Roger liked Blade Runner but Gene thought it was a...
