I must admit I get excited over director cuts and special release DVDs. I loved the original Blade Runner. I have some concerns about adjusting the ending (and thus changing it) but I will still have to watch it. The nice thing about these releases is that they do put the DVD back out on the market for those who have not already bought it the down side is that if you are looking to buy the theatrical release new then you will have to get it in the special box set format. If you haven't seen the original then you must watch it.
