Jer is picking our January movie for the Movie Watching Group (MWG) as Bladerunner from 1982. He was trying to pick a movie to pay Marci back for Night of the Comet, but ended up picking this one since he really wanted to see it again. There are three versions of this movie out. There is the original Theatrical Version with Harrison Ford voice over narration, then there is the Director’s Cut (the one that is linked in this post) which cuts out the narration and has a different ending, and the Final Cut just came out on DVD. I have no clue how that one is different. I’ve only ever seen the Director’s Cut. Say which one you watched when you review it.
Netflix Synopsis: In the smog-choked dystopian Los Angeles of 2019, blade runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is called out of retirement to snuff a quartet of “replicants” — androids consigned to slave labor on remote planets. They’ve escaped to Earth seeking their creator and a way to extend their short life spans. Director Ridley Scott‘s reedited version comes with a different ending and the omission of Ford’s narration, giving the film a different tone.
RT Score: 91%
Here is our group that needs to watch the movie and review it: Amy, Marci, Sharon, Jim, Keiran, Lynz, Stacy, Jer and me. Review away! Remember to say which version you watched.
