STUDIO: Warner Bros. Pictures/ Ladd Company/ Blade Runner Partnership/ Run Run Shaw

BLADE RUNNER holds a special place in my heart. It is also a classic which has influenced countless movies, TV shows, music videos, and even fashion. I have seen the film countless times since I first watched the Director's Cut in 1992. I have collected magazines, boooks, and the soundtrack CD. BLADE RUNNER has clearly imprinted itself into my brain. I see something new everytime. The Final Cut version features new footage, digital fixes, and other discoveries. It is worth any fan's time to check this DVD out.

SPECIAL FEATURES: The first two discs which form the special edition of BLADE RUNNER- FINAL CUT features three audio commentaries, a three and a half hour documentary on the making of BLADE RUNNER called DANGEROUS DAYS: MAKING BLADE RUNNER (disc two), and trailers for other films- I AM LEGEND, FRACTURE, INVASION, and SUPERMAN: DOOMSDAY (disc two).

The three audio commentaries contain a wealth of information (some which si repeated in DANGEROUS DAYS documentary). The first track is by director Ridley Scott. Track two is by co-screenwriters Hampton Fancher (also an executive producer) and David Peoples, along with producer Michael Deeley and production executive Katherine Haber. Track three has futurist Syd Mead, production designer Lawrence G. Paull, art director David L. Snyder and special effects supervisors Douglas Trumbull, Richard Yuricich and David Dryer. The audio commentaries have all types of info to entertain you. Ridley briefly reflects on ideas for a BLADE RUNNER sequel which will never be.


DANGEROUS DAYS: MAKING BLADE RUNNER is the ultimate making of documentary that covers ground on everything to do with making the film featuring interviews with various cast and crew, Phillip K. Dick's daughter (Isa Dick Hackett), Paul M. Sammon, the DVD Producer (Charles de Lauzirika), a film critic, and directors who love the film. It features bits from the screen tests and deleted scenes which can be found on disc four of the 4 disc Collector's Edition and the 5 disc Limited Edition. I will do an even more extensive review when I get hold of the five disc DVD next week.

FINAL ANALYSIS: BLADE RUNNER is my favorite film of all time. It is a classic that deserves the ultimate DVD treatment. If you want all of the released versions on DVD and even more extras, at least buy the four disc Collector's Edition instead of the two disc Special Edition which features only the latest version of BLADE RUNNER and a making of documentary.
