I thought the other Blade Runner trailer looked better. This one:

I consider myself quite knowledgeable when it comes to cinema - I've seen most films but I've never watched Blade Runner. Does it hold up??

In some ways yes, masterfully. In other ways, it seems a bit dated. It's 90% awesome though.

Do not watch anything other than the final cut in blu ray quality though. Any other version isn't worth your time.

After you've watched Blade Runner watch Dangerous Days, the making of Blade Runner documentary. It gives you much more insight into the movie and how "ground-breaking" it was.

I didn't watch Blade Runner or Alien until I was in my early 20's.

They changed the way I look at films.

The style/tone of Blade Runner is really like nothing seen before or since. Real masterful blend of sci-fi and noir.

It looks like a dumb pseudo-philosophical action-thriller with an emphasis on visuals.

Much of the attraction of Blade Runner is that it's a really smart movie that doesn't try to spoon feed you high school philosophy, but rather explores it's themes and ideas through character interaction. It's a movie where you have to think about what's going on to realize how compelling many of the scenes are and what the point of certain characters even is in the movie.

Of course I had my doubts from the beginning, seeing how they're clearly abandoning the question of whether or not Deckard is a replicant, which has huge implications for the original. To the point where many scenes lose much of their meaning.

Not necessarily. Could be some reason he went beyond the normal age limit.

I thought the trailers actually perpetuated the replicant thing.

Quotes from trailer: (spoilers for people who didn't watch)

I really like the theory that the Alien franchise is set in the same universe and timeline as Blade Runner. I watched the films somewhat differently after hearing of that theory.

I just rewatched the first one. I forgot how much fun it was.
