About this deal

Considering that the 35mm elements were scanned in 4K and the 65mm effects shots were scanned at 8K with the restoration finished at 4K, this is absolutely the best Blade Runner The Final Cut has ever looked on home video - and likely will ever look without another incredibly expensive restoration effort.

The third platter features three different versions of the film, selectable from the main menu thanks to seamless branching: the original 1982 domestic cut of the film, the 1982 International version, and the subsequent 1992 Director's Cut. In my review for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, I opened by discussing the difficulties of discussing a classic piece of cinema.Although it should be said that the Blu-ray does have one stark advantage over the 4K HDR version: it hardly suffers at all with any of the grain I talked about earlier. This long-anticipated follow-up to Ridley Scott's 1982 cult classic struggled to connect with viewers .

Dick discusses his feelings on the then-ongoing production of 'Blade Runner,' the small bits of footage he had seen up until that point, and even his thoughts on the casting of Harrison Ford. This is a richer, more expressive image that makes you appreciate the production design and aesthetics even more. anniversary version, originally released in 2008, of the iconic sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner, director Ridley Scott has gone back into post production to create the long-awaited definitive new version. Consumer Products by Snow Commerce, which is soley responsible for the site's content and all aspects of your purchase.The combination of HDR and wider colors also makes the film feel like it was made just yesterday, rather than 35 years ago. The 4K release is pressed onto a BD-66 disc while the other three discs are merely the same Disc 1, 2, and 4 (more on that in a bit), of the original 5-disc release of Blade Runner from 2007. In keeping with the high video standards employed on this Blu-ray release, Warner has opted to include a full 5. Over the last 35 years, Blade Runner has run the gauntlet of being considered an expensive indulgent failure to being one of the highest-regarded films in science fiction filmmaking.

Many, many scenes that have been discussed for years are finally revealed, including Deckard's visit to Holden in the hospital, expanded material with Blatty and Tyrell, a completely different opening, and even a first-ever glimpse's of Deckard's wife!I can't remember the circumstances that led to both my mom and my sister not being home on a Friday night, but it was just me and my dad, some pizza, a bunch of junk food, and a trip to our local VideoWatch (before they were bought by Hollywood Video). Among the bonus features is Dangerous Days, a brand new, three-and-a-half-hour documentary by award-winning DVD producer Charles de Lauzirika, with an extensive look into every aspect of the film: its literary genesis, its challenging production and its controversial legacy. This is backed up to some extent by the fact that the ‘fizziest’ scenes tend to be those in fairly dark interior settings. Scott's definitive version of the film along with the long talked about "Workprint" edition of the film. I had seen Alien and that Blade Runner was also directed by Ridley Scott was part of the pitch my dad made in getting me to watch something I'd never heard of.

In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, a 21st-century detective is on the trail of four fugitive replicants—cloned humans that are now illegal—and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul. This would have been the perfect opportunity for some sort of behind the scenes retrospective with cast and crew interviews or even one of the new film's many trailers. Other titles include Sony's disappointing raunchy comedy Rough Night, a 4K edition of the great horror-deconstruction .I'm aching inside because I just can't do this review justice with images captured from the now ancient VC-1 Blu-ray of 2007. For the week of September 4th, Warner Home Entertainment is bringing a welcome 4K upgrade of Ridley Scott's landmark sci-fi thriller Blade Runner. Scott can be a bit dry with some of his commentaries, but his insight here is consistently fascinating and sometimes engagingly blunt.
