    YES. The two films are stunning on a cinematographic level and are absolutely worth your time.

    It's a slow-burn, philosophy-heavy film series. You have to be in the right mood to truly enjoy it but it's a fantastic experience.

    Sounds very like my kind of film. I’m surprised I have never invested my time into this. I will ASAP tho. Cheers.

    Yes you should at least try.
    Blade Runner (1982) is one of my favorites movie of all time. I still listen the soundtrack at night, now in my spotify.
    BD 2049 it is another great piece of art. A little slower than the original movie but its.works in its on ways. You should watch both, but remember that you must be in the mood.

    If nothing else, watch them both for their utterly brilliant visuals!

    The original, thanks to the superb production design by Syd Mead and Roger Deakins cinematography set a new bar for SF films and pretty much created the concept of dystopian future-scapes...

    ...which was something the belated sequel was carefully conceived to respectfully carry forward and yet still make it's own

    A question to the ones that saw all the versions (or most of them) of the classic Blade Runner:

    Wich version of the movie do you prefer? (I read on internet that there are seven version, but I only saw three):

    - The Original Cut, U.S Release 1982 (The international version is almost the same with some scenes with much graphic violence);
    - The Director's Cut 1992 (No voice over, the ending was different and they add the unicorn);
    - The Final Cut 2007

    I came up on the original cut. I love the narration which is not present in the the director's cut. I have yet to see the final cut but I've read up on it.

    I still lean towards the Director's Cut as it's the version I've seen the most. I think I've only watched the V/O original theatrical release once!
    I have options on versions when it comes to watching it again though ;)...

    It is my favorite too for the same reasons.
    The director's cut and the final cut are almost the same movie. I can't tell difference except the video.quality? Do you know if there is any new or extended scene?

    There are several small differences - I’d need to remind myself what they all were, but Batty talking to Leon on the street outside the vidphon booth is a reinserted scene in the Final Cut.
    More famously Zhora’s death was filmed using a stunt actress originally which survived through to the 1992 version. For the Final Cut they got Joanna Cassidy back in and refilmed her crashing through the windows so that it was clearly her - which is amazing given the 30-odd year elapsed time

    I didn't even notice that they changed the Zhora's death scene, they made I good job so.
    I just enjoyed this Final Cut even more because the quality of the images are cleaner. Bur its basically the Director's cut version.

    I was watching the excellent documentary, Dangerous Days, with 3 1/2 hours and I found a lot of cool informations:

    - They had this idea of the movie starting in a farm, or in some isolated place in a cabin, with a close up in a pan with boiling water, Deckard was waiting for a replicant to arrive, he arrived and they star a fight. I just realize seconds later that they use this in Blade Runner 2049;
    - I am not sure but I think they added two dancers in the streets of Chinatown;
    - There is a cool scene when Deckard is talking with the guy that Leon shots at the beginning of the film, he is in a type of white coffin;
    - Rutger Hauer came up with the lines at the end of the movie "All those momments will be lost in time.....like tears in rain.";
    - A lot of scenes that I never saw before, special the one with Sean Young, she is so beautiful.

    I just finished posting in another thread how Star Wars was far above everything else as my favorite of all time, with Marvel cemented firmly as my second. Well, Blade Runner is definitively in the third spot. Everything else is in a constant state of flux, but these top three are fixed.

    The original Blade Runner is an absolute masterpiece. Dangerous Days is right up there with Empire of Dreams as the best making-of documentaries I've ever seen. Nothing else is like it, not even close.

    We are fortunate a cult movie like Blade Runner even got a sequel with the budget 2049 had, and that Villeneuve was allowed to make it noir in style.

    Blade Runner 2049 is a good movie. I enjoyed it very much and would rank it as one of my favorites, but it does not capture the brilliance of the original, but then again what does?
