Anyone here seen the new Final Cut version?

The 5-disc Final Cut has been out since December on DVD and Bluray. 5 versions of the movie...the Final Cut one is the most impressive. They did a terrific job cleaning it up. They even "re-shot" some scenes and used computers to insert the reshoots into current scenes (eg, replacing the obvious face of a stunt double with the real actress's face).

Amazon has it for $19 USD for the bluray version. Worth every penny.

Even though it's an old, old movie (prehistoric, perhaps), it's arguably the best looking and sounding movie on Bluray.

The Final Cut is the only version I've seen, and it's incredible. A great story and by far the most fully realized and believable vision of the future created in cinema. And beautifully and stylishly shot.

Don't ever watch the original cut - it makes you cry that Hollywood producers were allowed to alter the end of one of Philip K Dick's masterpieces...

Blade Runner is only very loosely based on one of Dick's short stories.

I know, but the original film ending is absolutely horrific.

I'm sure it is... but out of blind rage, I shelved my HDVD reader, and I'm not planning to buy any disc in a dead standard

It's actually based on "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", which I guess could be considered a shortish novel (novella even?). But it's published as a stand alone book for the most part.

I bought the collector's case thingy and still haven't gotten around to opening it...wonder if there's a market for it???

Love that movie!
