Seldom do you ever see a movie that can be edited several times and the more they work on it the better it gets. What is the best part is that no new scenes were shot to make the final cut. Ridley Scott didn't pull a George Lucas and that to me isn't hurting a classic, it's just making it that much better. This film is probably the most underrated science fiction film of all time. To think if he had released this film the way it is now and not at the same time ET came out, this movie would have been nominated for several Oscars. Don't get me wrong. ET is a great flim, but as far as being influental it doesn't touch Blade Runner. This is a one of a kind film. I recommend you see it right away!
