Very enjoyable. The actor playing Nixon's voice was kind of annoying, but otherwise it was very well done and interesting.

i feel like thats the case with any movie that came out before 1990.

This version wasn't available on DVD for the longest time, but I know the new Blue Ray has it. You also have to take into consideration that the movie is 25 years old. The cityscape they created... without CGI, I might add... was an amazing accomplishment in my opinion and to this day, it still holds it's own or even looks better than some modern CGI enhanced effects. Bladerunner was the epitomy of cutting edge in it's time and people's high opinion of it usually comes from a first viewing taking place back in the 80's. I feel the same way about the movie "Alien". With the exception of the instrument panel on the space ship, the effects in Alien hold it's own in every regard with modern day movies... and it's 30 years old. Ridley Scott is awesome.
RIDLEY SCOTT'S ALL-NEW "FINAL CUT" VERSION OF THE FILM

DOCUMENTARY - DANGEROUS DAYS: MAKING BLADE RUNNER
A feature-length authoritative documentary revealing all the elements that shaped this hugely influential cinema landmark. Cast, crew, critics and colleagues give a behind-the-scenes, in-depth look at the film -- from its literary roots and inception through casting, production, visuals and special effects to its controversial legacy and place in Hollywood history.
1982 THEATRICAL VERSION
This is the version that introduced U.S. movie-going audiences to a revolutionary film with a new and excitingly provocative vision of the near-future. It contains Deckard/Harrison Ford's character narration and has Deckard and Rachel's (Sean Young) "happy ending" escape scene.
1982 INTERNATIONAL VERSION
Also used on U.S. home video, laserdisc and cable releases up to 1992. This version is not rated, and contains some extended action scenes in contrast to the Theatrical Version.
1992 DIRECTOR'S CUT
The Director's Cut omits Deckard's voiceover narration and removes the "happy ending" finale. It adds the famously-controversial "unicorn" sequence, a vision that Deckard has which suggests that he, too, may be a replicant.

The 5-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition includes everything from the previously described 4-Disc Edition, plus the ultra-rare, near-legendary WORKPRINT version of the film, newly remastered. The Ultimate Collector's Edition will be presented in a unique 5-disc digi-package with handle which is a stylish version of Rick Deckard's own briefcase, in addition each briefcase will be individually numbered and in limited supply. Included is a lenticular motion film clip from the original feature, miniature origami unicorn figurine, miniature replica spinner car, collector's photographs as well as a signed personal letter from Sir Ridley Scott.
This rare version of the film is considered by some to be the most radically different of all the Blade Runner cuts. It includes an altered opening scene, no Deckard narration until the final scenes, no "unicorn" sequence, no Deckard/Rachel "happy ending," altered lines between Batty (Rutger Hauer) and his creator Tyrell (Joe Turkell), alternate music and much more.
