By my count, it’s been eighteen days since we last posted anything new around here. You’d think that that would prompt some inquiries into our well-being, but it would appear that nobody noticed.
Blade Runner: The Final Cut is currently streaming on Netflix. Now, I yield to no one in my love for the original theatrical release, which I first saw as a callow youth back in 1982. The difference? I found the The Final Cut, which came out in 2007, to be far more sci-fi and less noir. It’s also director Ridley Scott’s preferred version – the one that more closely hews to his vision. (There are a lot of versions, too, so this is very important.)
Thirty-eight years later, it still holds up. And it’s still one of my all-time favorite movies.
