We're gonna need a bigger boat.

I watched Blade Runner 2049 and really liked it. I think it might be one of my favorite movies. But all my nerd friends are giving me crap because I have never seen the original Blade Runner. I don't know which version to watch.

I'm worried I'm not gonna like the original because it sounds like another goddamn love story. So I don't want to just commit to watching all the versions. But if one of you smart sexy film buffs could tell me which version to watch, I would appreciate it.

I just watched the long director's cut of the first movie, but honestly I liked 2049 better. Both were good but I thought the sequel was great.

The Final Cut is widely regarded as the definitive version, as it was the only time Ridley Scott had 100% complete over the edit, and it's the one I always revisit.

2049 was fucking great, though. Saw it three times when it was in cinemas, and watched it a couple times on Blu Ray since. The original has always been one of my favourite movies, but 2049 came pretty damn close. Not to mention it's impressive that they managed to craft a worthy sequel in the first place that keeps both the legacy and ambiguous ending of the first intact.

If you were to dislike it, it wouldn't be for that reason.

I'm glad you guys liked 2049. The dudes in my town are just very anti-sequel I think, which is understandable I suppose.

Thanks for the info Orion. :) It sounds like the Final Cut is the way to go.

I'm pretty jealous of anyone who got to see it in theaters. I saw it in my parents' living room where my mom kept interrupting all the really aesthetic scenes to complain about how slow it was.

That's somehow encouraging to hear. I'll try to watch it soon.
