Do You Actually Need To See The Original To Enjoy Blade Runner: 2049?

Against all odds Blade Runner 2049 has made it to the big screen. Should you watch the original before watching this sequel? The first Blade Runner was released in 1982 to a somewhat muted reception. Those behind the sequel have said that you can go into Blade Runner 2049 without any prior knowledge of the original and understand it completely. However, director Denis Villeneuve put a lot of references to the original movie in the sequel. Finding all the references in the sequel will add another layer of enjoyment to a film critics are calling a visual masterpiece.
