Something similar to the LotR poll, which cut of Blade Runner do you prefer?

For me, it's the Final Cut.

It's basically the Director's cut but without that annoying error of how many replicants that actually made it to Earth.

Nobody? Nobody at all?


Why do I bother with real, movie-related polls sometimes if you're not going to vote in them and then yell at me when I have a nonsense poll up?

I voted, Patrick. Feel better now?

As a general observation, I think participation on the boards has gone down overall in general. Probably the summer weather.

I would have preferred "Is Deckard a replicant?"

I like the Final Cut very well, though I can watch the Director's Cut with no problems. I voted Final Cut.

I've never seen the original theatrical cut with the voice-over and all; it came out when I was very young. I bought the DVD box set containing it, but I've never gotten around to watching it. One of these days I will, just to see the difference.

I voted Final Cut too. And, you should totally check out the theatrical cut. Harrison Ford's voice over work is incredible.

Shhhh! Incredible doesn't necessarily mean great. Don't let Sexy Choco know. I'm trying a trick-sie on him.

I do intend to watch it someday, regardless of the quality of Ford's voiceover. I've always wanted to, just for comparative purposes. Kind of like I had an interest in the "Love Conquers All" version of Brazil.

Director's Cut. I enjoyed Final, but saw it only once, and I'm not sure the differences were substantial enough to prefer it. I'm not a huge fan of filmmakers endlessly monkeying with their stuff.

I choose "Blade Runner is overrated".

Haven't seen the final cut so went with the director's. The original version isn't so terrible -- the narration lends the movie a kind of cheapy noir vibe that doesn't subtract all that much atmosphere. The director's cut is decidedly better, however.
