Now if we could just have the original version of 'Wreckage and Rape - The making of Alien 3' I can die a happy man
Back to BR, I agree with you Dave, the new colour timing and grading is perfect. The Final Cut really does justice to Jordan Cronenweth's sublime cinematography. I remember a conversation we had years ago on discussing the look of Blade Runner, and you said (something along the lines of) you can take any frame of footage from that movie, blow it up, have it framed, put it on your wall, and it will be a work of art. I agreed with you back then, and I agree even more so now. In one of the interviews on the new disc, someone comments on how watching the film for the first time made them want to live in the world Ridley had created. I always get this same feeling when watching Blade Runner - it's one of a very few films that truly manages to transport me into another time and place.
And to think that I hated Blade Runner on my first viewing all those years ago....I was so naive back then.........
