Casablanca. But this isn't really fair. Really. It isn't. A very close second would be Under the Tuscan Sun.

Did you prefer the original version or the Director's Cut? I preferred the ending of the Director's Cut, but I liked the film noir voice-over in the original.

Blade Runner is probably my favorite, as well, but it was almost a coin toss with Casablanca.

To tell the truth, I don't remember the original cut at all. I am pretty sure I saw it once, but I've owned the Director's cut since it came out on VHS, so that's the one I think of. I should rent the original sometime to try out the voiceovers.

The version with the voiceovers changes the significance of the final scene (makes it more upbeat).

I'm sure you know this, but the big debate that has raged with Blade Runner is whether Harrison Ford's character was a replicant. The director's cut contains scenes (and one scene in particular) which seem to indicate that he was.

I've never made it through Blade Runner without falling asleep.

You're right about the voiceover at the end, which is why I vastly prefer the Director's Cut ending (though the extra scenes in the Director's Cut are also worthwhile). This might be apocryphal, but I'd heard that the very end of the original/theatrical version, with the sweeping panoramas of vegetation, etc., was stock footage left over from The Shining.

Re: Deckard as a replicant--IIRC, Ridley Scott confirmed in an interview a few years ago that Deckard is a replicant in the movie. However, I recall that he definitely was not in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.

I remember hearing the same thing regarding the footage from The Shining. Ridley Scott did confirm that Deckard was a replicant in an interview (I kind of wish he hadn't - would have made the debate more interesting, certainly). I read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? a long time ago, but my recollection is the same as yours. Of course, except for the basic plot outline, Blade Runner didn't really stay true to DADOES?.

I wasn't very impressed by it either. It was ok, but for a film hailed as the greatest scifi movie ever, I was expecting something decidedly less vacuous and clumsily directed.

Ford was kind of angry about that and said that he and Scott had agreed while making the movie that he definitely was not.

The Matrix not the trilogy, mind you, but the first one, which was refreshing for so many reasons. I hated the next two movies. I also know there're so many other good movies out there that're better than the Matrix, but this one just makes me feel good in a special way.
