Great thing this is not a remake with McG (the worst director in Hollywood) and Shia Lebeouf(perhaps the worst actor in Hollywood) as previously rumored. I'm a bit skeptical, but if it is a sidequel or loose sequel, meaning it doesnt touch or alter the original story but just takes place in that fictional world, it might be a worthy follow up.

I thought Black Hawk Down was very well done.

I saw Blade Runner at the best cinema in my area back on it's initial release. This cinema
was the ABC in Manchester here in England. Here, I saw this film at it's best. I should
think many younger people have only seen it on DVD. I thought back then, it was one of
the best film's ever made. To go back to it, I feel is a mistake, Ridley will struggle to get
that 'look' and atmosphere this film has. Over the years there have been a couple of
director's cuts, yet I feel to Ridley, it's an itch he can't scratch. I believe he had a lot of
problems while making the film from the background studio money men, and would have
made the film a little differently than it was. Luckily, it turned out great anyway. But he feels
compelled to go back to the subject. We'll have to see how it turns out.

I've heard that, but I have yet to see it.

People raved about Gladiator. I hated it. Didn't much like Kingdom of Heaven either. And Scott's Robin Hood was the one thing a Robin Hood story should never be: BORING!

I've seen the theatrical version as well, but I really prefer The Final Cut. Unlike George Lucas, Ridley modified the film for his own satisfaction, not to show off the latest in CGI at Lucas' studio and splice in unnecessary scenes simply to squeeze more money out of audiences.

If he can collaborate with his brother Tony Scott, it can be like "Blade Runner" meets "Top Gun"

Blade Runner: The Final Cut - Film Review (http://www.digitalbits.com/reviews3/bladerunnerfinalfilm.html - broken link)
The Final Cut I like because it chops off the horrid "and they lived happily ever after and went for a nice drive in the country" ending.

But I honestly think the film works better with the voice narration. It really gives it a lot more of the film noir hardboiled detective feel.

I prefer the original cut frankly because that's the version I saw first and grew up watching over and over on VHS then later DVD, but I like the final cut too
