Blade Runner vs. Saving Private Ryan


in the case of Blade Runner, let's say you are voting on whichever version you happen to like best.

Saving Private Ryan is a modern war classic, I love the intense way that te story plays out.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

Blade runner, is easily one of the top 5 best sci-fi movies of all time.

i can't believe this is close.

Private Ryan has great battle sequences, but as a movie it's dumb as paint. typical spielberg bullshit.

Blade Runner is... Blade Runner! you can hardly name a more influential movie of the last 30 years. also, it's completely awesome.

To be honest, I've never seen either of these. I'll assume that Blade Runner is a lot like Blade and vote for it based on the fact that Wesley Snipes is a badass.
sure we tend to ramble, but that was a 3 page off topic tangent on crack and doses for breakfast?

Hey, I don't know anything. Please help.

I really expected to have to defend my choice of Blade Runner for some reason. Saving Private Ryan was ALMOST as bad as Warhorse.
If we could see these many waves that flow through clouds and sunken caves...

We are all and we are all we are
Far flung bits of Sun and bits of Stars
From the  ocean from the land from the
beginning to end
Backwards forwards back toward
we belong
