I can never get enough of Blade Runner and have long-wanted a version in this vein, I just had no idea it already existed!
I found the work to be very well done - the pitch-correction helps with the general immersion and I even think the original voiceovers would've benefitted a lot (and possibly avoided a lot of criticism) from having the same applied to them.
The edits aren't jarring and it's clear that every effort has been put in to alleviate any concerns you could have there. As a complete movie I did fear that the pacing would suffer slightly with even a few minutes being added but any additions felt carefully-selected and necessary so I have nothing to complain about there.
I don't really know much about fanedits but I enjoyed this a lot. I think anyone who already loves Blade Runner will certainly find something to enjoy here and therefore I recommend it highly.
This happens to be exactly the kind of edit that I was planning to do for a long time, minus the voiceover, but I am totally on board with this vision. Carefully selected lines at specific points to enhance the narrative. This actually, is growing a lot on me, more for the reason of intoxicating amount of love and attention invested into audio editing, than the feeling that explanations are needed. I am not sure I even want to watch this movie anymore, without having Wraith's special touch on it.
But, the best thing of all, Wraith has mimicked my planned OCD approach to collect every frame from every official BR cut to date, in one movie! THIS, in my opinion, makes this edit one of the most valuable, out there. Are you aware how much time you saved me, friend?! Of course you are, this beast must have been as much a source of frustration and lost sleep, as it is a clear labor of love! Thank you!
Wraith's work on Blade Runner is outstanding. The addition of the narration helps to clarify particular sections of the storyline, which I found somewhat confusing and/or lacking in information in the Director's Cut (i.e. the non-narration version of the movie). The scene with Deckard (Harrison Ford) at the piano remembering the unicorn also greatly assisted in confirming that his character is actually a replicant with implanted memories (spoiler alert), and that his mention of an "ex-wife" is actually an implanted memory.
I could not find any flaws in the video or sound editing, and the entire production appears to be a work that has been made to a professional level of skill. Personally, I believed that it is a pity that this version is not available for widescale release to the mass public.
