    I think we can all agree that Blade Runner is way over due for a make over in video and sound. I put the old release of it on my HD/5.1 setup and it looks and sounds terrible. What a crying shame! It is such a classic great movie that it should be on the top of the list, considering that Ridley's Gladiator was best picture.

    Stephen, I believe this is indeed in the works, and will eventually be released when its ready. I think the current rumour is sometime next year, but no more definite than that. With the team at Scott Free on it I think we can rest assured that whatever comes out will be very nice indeed.

    Hopefully it wont be a case like the eternally delayed Legend SE.
    I wouldnt say Blade Runner looks terrible but the technology is better than it was a mere 4 years ago and this title (one of my personal top 10)deserves topnotch treatment.

    I also remember the this movie being window boxed. Black bars on all four sides. Never really found out why they did this.

    I hope they decide to bring back the original version with the "Legend" unicorn scene removed and the ending restored to it's original state. Also the narration by Harrison Ford that was removed in the directors cut, was necessary for people who have never seen the movie before.
    What do you guys think?

    Stephen,
    I think if you put more ***'s and !!!'s in your subject line next time, Warner might take notice and release this sooner.

    I think the unicorn scene is silly and unnecessary. Its removal would be for the best, IMO. However, I do like the "new" ending. Keep it in! I can do without the narration even though it never bothered me that much. Just give us a choice on that one. Well, that's what I think!

    For people who would like to really understand what
    parts of Blade Runner are in different
    versions and why, you should read
    Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner
    by Paul M. Sammon
    The unicorn scene is integral to what happens
    at the end of the film with a certain piece of
    folded paper and what that implies about Deckard.
    While most on this forum love to spout opinions,
    and assertions, I sure wish more people would
    make an effort to make most of
    these INFORMED opinions and assertions.

    Hey Ted-
    Point taken and understood. [​IMG]
    Maybe I should take a chill pill, but
    the other side of this is that people claim
    to be fans of films like Blade Runner,
    but then don't bother to do any MINIMAL research
    before stating things like, "Why'd he put that scene
    from Legend in Blade Runner?"
    Granted, half the reason this forum exists to
    to let people share information...I just wish
    there wasn't so much MISinformation being spread.
    (The Hannibal thread was a good, exasperating example
    of this...Poor, Charlie de Lauzirika!)
    Too much coffee (on my part), perhaps? [​IMG]
    In kind,
    Mark
