Blade Runner Five Disc Set Is A LIMITED EDITION!

Well, due to Mrs. Axinar psyching me out about getting the Blade Runner Five Disc Set for Christmas, I just now got the thing in the mail TODAY and what can I say but - WOW!

First of all, please note this thing is a LIMITED EDITION. The little plastic "suitcase" it came in has a serial number about half way thruogh the limited run of 103,000.

That means all y'all who want one of these things need to order it NOW before the primary suppliers run out.

Of course I haven't had the time to check out the whole thing yet, but I have had a chance to screen the infamous "Work Print" and it is, in many ways, the most bizarre of all the extant versions. Probably the most surprising bit that I had never heard of before was that the Vangelis score was not complete when the Work Print was put together and there are "temporary" tracks from other scores done by Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner. Now, those tracks are obviously VERY temporary and don't fit into the film very well, but it is WAY spooky hearing hints of Star Trek II and III eminating from Blade Runner.

So far the best part has been the deleted scenes, however.

In one of them, Deckard goes over the files in the spinner with Gaff instead of in Bryant's office. He's going over Zhora's file and says, "Looks like a cross between a porn movie and a traffic accident."

Doesn't put you in mind of anyone does it? :)

i'm not nicki x. idk what you're talking about. Nonetheless, something of 'IMPORT.'

Niki x should know better. Threats of law enforcement or attempted outings of trolls generally come with a resounding fail. But who knows, maybe it will work for her where it hasn't worked for anyone before. Hey, there's a first time for everything, right?
