Blade Runner 2049 Discussion (SPOILERS)
I can't get over how staggering the visuals are. The CG is some of the best/most natural looking I've ever seen. Young Rachael is absolutely unbelievable. I can't get over how they pulled that off so well. This has to win for visual effects and cinematography at the Academy Awards.

Was anybody else surprised Bautista was barely in this? Trailer made me think he'd have a larger role...

ETA: Did they just abandon Deckard's dog?

My ONLY complaint is Luv letting Joe live TWICE for no apparent reason. Unless I missed something, I could not understand why she kept letting him live.

Other than that, absolutely flawless movie. It may have been the best cinematography I've ever seen. Absolutely beautiful.

re: Blade Runner 2049 Discussion (SPOILERS)
Just got out, pretty disappointed. The sound is really good. Particularly when were in Leto’s headquarters. Really serene setting. The visuals were great and Leto played a great, although limited, role, but good God that was a boring movie. 2 hours and 45 min of no action. Just a dreary, futuristic world and goslings character has even less personality than his Drive character (I understand he’s a replicant but still)

I understand most will give it a great score simply based on the cinematography and music but I need more than that. Also, I’ve never seen the original, not sure if that makes a difference or not

I haven't seen it but my daughter has and I quote, " We just got out of Blade Runner...it was more Blade Walker. It was the slowest and longest film I have ever seen."

I think I'll skip it.

Y'all do realize the original isn't a fast-paced film, right?

ETA: I agree it could be a little shorter, but it's not like they deviated from some fast-paced thriller with the original to give us a sequel that takes its time to tell a story.

I assumed there were going to be some people that reacted this way to it. It's not going to be for everyone. It pays homage to the original by telling the story in a slow, methodical fashion. It's the only way they could have made this movie because fans of the original are going to expect that. Scenes and dialogue are monotone and long. It's a very unique style. Its very scenery and atmosphere oriented. It also uses a distinct score to set the mood.

But again, it's not going to appeal to everyone.

Yeah, I'm not surprised some people don't like a slower movie. I just don't know what people were expecting. It was never going to be full of explosions and chase scenes from start to finish.

And yes, it's very atmospheric.

re: Blade Runner 2049 Discussion (SPOILERS)
I think if people either haven't seen the original or just don't respect the original, they will probably not think much of this one.

ETA: There may be exceptions, but I think this may be the case for a lot of people.

I don't particarlu care for the original that much and I thought this was a vastly superior movie.

I don't know why someone would go into this movie from an Action standpoint. Not that kind of movie

Just got back from seeing it. I liked it. It was a little long. They try to spoon-feed the story more than the original to appease mainstream audiences, but it's hard to make the cyberpunk genre cater to a general audience.

Imo, if you're a fan of cyberpunk, then you won't mind the slow pacing or the length. I, for one, am glad there's not a lot of action. Blade Runner is about the cinematography, the mood, the music, the themes, and ideas, not shootings and explosions.

My biggest pet peeve was I wished they left aspects of the story more vague. The fun of watching sci-fi films like Blade Runner is figuring things out on your own and coming up with your own interpretations. It makes it easier to tolerate the pacing and length.

Overall, I give it a 8 out of 10. I'm glad that for the most part, they kept the style of the film similar to the original.

It's definitely not that kind of movie.

My wife just saw the original today and we saw the new one after. She didn't think much of either one and thought they were boring. She said she expected more action. I guess she saw Gosling kicking arse in the trailer and expected that the entire movie.

Yeah, I am wondering if some people have seen the original. I was by no means expecting a badass action movie. There are plenty of outstanding slow sci-fi movies. Shit, I'd say half of the great ones are.

I decided to go see it anyway. It was the greatest movie I have ever seen but it was good. I could see a couple of Academy Award nominations for cinematography and the score. They were able to link this movie to the first one. It was slow. RG played the same character he has in most the movies I have seen him in. If it works for Tom Cruise...

It has plenty of action; plenty. It's not about the movie being boring - it's not. It's about every scene is dragged out.

Because even the action scenes drag out forever, the Ford-Gosling dispute could have been resolved a lot quicker - Ford seemed over the top in not accepting any truce or talk...like an old drunk just constantly lunging and slugging.

And the final scene fight scene goes on and on.

I think people who like action - will love this movie.

It's just the pacing is sort of weird and really glacial...the camera sits on Gosling's face for LONG periods of him just staring at the camera - pondering life and what it means to be human I suppose.

I really liked the movie but there's no doubt they could have separated the wheat from the chaff with a great editor. There's no reason Gosling needs to spend 15 minutes walking through that empty Casino before he meets Ford - just staring at things. From the minute he walks in to their fight to their capture - there's like 10 lines of dialogue over 30 minutes.

Unfortunately if it doesn't follow the Marvel formula people will hate it nowadays.

Saw it tonight and thought it was great.
