RE: "may not be possible to always differentiate between what is and what isn't CGI"...

I'm sure you're right about large screen viewing as the preferred method. At my current residence I have to drive a ways (like more than 50 miles) to get to an IMAX screen. Instead I viewed this on my aging 32" Samsung LCD flat panel. Perhaps seeing it on the small screen like mine, one tends to be less influenced by visual impact and more by story. And there is a story here.

re: Replicant BladeRunners retiring "illegal" replicants. That does seem an ironic twist, but can provide a metaphor for any political position you wish to take.

On my first viewing it took me a while to identify the protagonist in this film as a replicant. On second viewing I notice that I had missed some up front clues offered in the beginning of the film that identify just this. I guess it takes me a second viewing for many of the essential story elements to get imprinted on my feeble brain cells. But really I was looking at many of the movie set props and deciding which were physical and constructed in the model shop and which were CGI 'virtual' constructs. These blend well, I thought.
