What fan of Blade Runner are you ?

1 (the Philip K. Dick picture) : only the book of Philip K. Dick matters.
2 (the Blade runner movie picture) : the Ridley Scott's movie is second to none.
3 (the video game picture) : meet the real Blade Runner.
4 (the Blade runner 2049 picture) : the student has surpassed his teacher.
5 (the Brazil picture) : I've never liked Blade Runner.

I really like the original Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", but there is that phenomenon that some of the best adaptations of Dick's work are only loosely based on his works and Blade Runner (1982) is not an exception. Movie took cues from the novel but essentially took as much from classic film noir in the best way possible. I haven't played the game (though I know a lot about it) and I haven't seen the new movie (yet), but I love the original 1982 picture and, now that it's approaching it got A LOT right in terms of predictions as to how 2019 looks today. 

By the way, Gil Luna please correct the novel title: sheep is already a plural, no need to write it as "sheeps". :)

The plural forms may be followed by plural "s" in some context or as a stylistic manner. For example, people of England but peoples of Earth. In this case, we may stylistically say "sheeps" when mean several flocks of sheep... But Philip K. Dick used "sheep" when naming his novel )

MAthePA, good point, but still, it's "sheep" in the title. ;)

If I ever get to rewatch 2049, that might (in theory) get my vote. But for now? The original movie gets it.

Did you kill the list? Care to rewrite it again? This poll is still viable. Let me suggest that you add a few variations on the original film (maybe add two or three extra options:

1. the theatrical release;

2. the director's cut


3. maybe another cut version of the original film.
