In my original post, I admitted I’d never seen Blade Runner and then I took recommendations for movies I should see. In six hours alone, I received a *TON* of recommendations. Here’s the sorted list with duplicates removed and the titles sorted into “haven’t seen, won’t see,” and “already seen” categories.
