Is the Early Cut available anywhere? I'd be willing to give up an afternoon to see that.

Seeing that Ridley Scott is talking about directing another Blade Runner... which version do you like the best?
original workprint version
Original workprint version (1982, 113 minutes) shown to audience test previews in Denver and Dallas in March 1982. It was also seen in 1990 and 1991 in Los Angeles and San Francisco as a Director's Cut without the approval of director Ridley Scott. It was re-released as a 5-disc Ultimate Edition in 2007.
San Diego sneak preview
A San Diego Sneak Preview shown only once in May 1982, which was almost identical to the Domestic Cut with three extra scenes.
US theatrical version
The U.S. theatrical version (1982, 116 minutes), known as the original version or Domestic Cut. This version remained unreleased on home video until 2007 when it was released on DVD as part of the five disc Ultimate Edition.
international cut
The International Cut (1982, 117 minutes) also known as the "Criterion Edition" or uncut version, included more violent action scenes than the U.S. theatrical version.
US broadcast version
The U.S. broadcast version (1986, 114 minutes), the U.S. theatrical version edited for violence, profanity and nudity by CBS to meet broadcast restrictions.
Scott-approved version
The Ridley Scott-approved (1992, 116 minutes) Director's Cut; prompted by the unauthorized 19901991 workprint theatrical release and made available on VHS and laserdisc in 1993, and on DVD in 1997. Significant changes from the theatrical version include: removal of Deckard's voice-over, insertion of a unicorn sequence and removal of the studio-imposed happy ending.
Scott's Final Cut
Ridley Scott's Final Cut (2007, 117 minutes), or the "25th Anniversary Edition"
Early Cut
A nearly four-hour-long "early cut" that was only shown to studio personnel.

How can I choose?
meh
It was neat, but not worth the 'hoopla' that fans give it.
