I still think that it is 50% great and 50% only OK.

Should I try the theatrical release?

I am still looking forward to the new movie.
I just finished watching this movie for the first time. I think I agree with the bolded.

Visually, it's pretty great, and it's thought-provoking, I guess, but wow, it's slow. Not a lot of plot. One comment I read was that the voice-over narration in the theatrical release helps fill in some of the pacing. It might be interesting to compare.

I do like that Roy is a much more interesting and empathetic character than Deckard, which is ironic if Deckard is human. I think the film makes more sense, philosophically, if he isn't a replicant but it's hard to care much either way.

The sex scene between Deckard and Rachael has not aged well.
