Blade Runner

They’ve finally remastered and re-released Blade Runner on DVD, on which I’ve spent some of my Christmas HMV vouchers. This is long overdue and the difference between it and the original DVD release is nothing short of remarkable. They’ve remastered the film, added a full 5.1 surround sound track and recut the film itself into “The Final Cut”, adding deleted scenes and reworking some of the special effects.

The result is truly amazing and if you already have Blade Runner on DVD then I promise you that it will be £22 very well spent. The box set also contains the Director’s Cut (as seen on the original DVD release) and the abominable United States theatrical release (the one with the narration deemed necessary to spoon-feed stupid Americans through the film), not that anyone would be interested watching that.
