I'm watching Blade Runner for the first time right now, 50 minutes in and it's decent enough but I don't think I'll be one of the people saying its one of the sci fi films of all time. Very interesting setting though.

Edit, now finished. Overall it's ok but I can't say I've got any burning desire to rush out and see Blade Runner 2049.

At the risk of alienating everyone here, I watched Blade runner for the first time last Saturday and I ended up turning it off about an hour into it - I thought it was rubbish. I really don't get why its got the cult following it has.

As such, I never went to see the sequel after all.

It is both noir and sci-fi

I must admit, i haven't seen Blade Runner, it's just one of those films i've never gotten around to seeing.

It does seem to be something of a marmite movie from what i've heard though.

It's not really like marmite. You either understand the historical significance and the effect it had on cinema, or you don't.

The Shining is also revered in a similar fashion, didn't stop me hating it though.

Will still likely try and see Blade Runner at some point, if only out of sheer curiosity.

Disliking a film and a film being rubbish are not equivalent.
