The 50 Greatest Movies Ever Made 14

Blade Runner has been re-edited numerous times over the last four decades, but whatever cut you prefer, any version of the movie is a classic. The dystopian sci-fi bombed at the box office, but a reputation as a cult classic swiftly arose, before it eventually elevated into all-timer territory.
