Right, but not the point.
You can look at em both online.
Which one is the right one?
Of course, this is a much easier choice as you can swipe back and forth between the two and enjoy em both. Whereas, a movie is two hours. Can't quickly swipe between the DC, FC and International versions

But why would you want to quickly swipe between all the different versions of a movie while watching it? Maybe I'm just not understanding your point.

Well, the theatrical cut and the international theatrical cut were there first, and are largely the same, so I would give deference to either of those.

It's a bit like asking which version of Star Wars is the right one. The difference seems to be that many people prefer the most recent iteration of Blade Runner, and the studio/Scott had the good sense to make each version available.

But fundamentally, if you're going to phrase it as you have above, from a film history perspective, the theatrical versions are "right".

Haaaaaaa no that's fair.
What I mean is, it takes a lot more time to sit and enjoy a movie than it does to look at a picture. You might not be able to invest six hours right now to compare three different versions of Blade Runner, but you could easily go back and forth between the three paintings (each that has a slight variation), and it won't take up your day.

Yeah, I get that.
I've done this myself, as a traditional artist. I drew animals for awhile ...
I once drew dog portraits in 1989. Signed and dated them. Done. Yet, in 1998 I came back to them, and added detail, hair, better shading...etc because I was able to do better.
Now I can't very well say those drawings were done in 1989 can I? I wasn't that good in 1989! It's unfair.
Is that compatible with what Lucas did to Star Wars? If so, he can't pawn off his work as "Star Wars is my work from 1977"
Is Blade Runner in the same boat?
Here is my example. Did I do these in 1989, or, 1998?:

The Final Cut is the only version I watch at this point.
For Your Consideration...
