It's very, very good.

Beautifully shot, well acted, clever, lots of references, intricate, ambiguous, and I want to see it again (and probably again).

Is it perfect? No. Is it a masterpiece? Not sure yet. But it just might be.

No spoilers please Smile.

(also mods, I'm sure I posted about this before but can't find it, if I did, or if somebody else did, please merge this in - thanks Smile ).

The only bit i didnt like was the end.

The rest of the movie is very very nice, but imo the old one has even a "darker" atmosphere that i liked more.

Not going to pay to watch this. Maybe it is a good movie. But I highly doubt it. These days even below mediocre movies are considered as good as there hardly are any good movies being released. I've just seen too many remakes, sequels or prequels that should hav been done in the 1980s.

I liked this a lot. The original is one of my favourite movies ever, and I think I'm going to need to see this one a bit more before I really decide how they stack up... but I came out of the cinema thinking "that felt like Blade Runner", and I agree with all of RM's comments on it.

Denis Villeneuve is rapidly becoming one of my favourite directors - Arrival was probably my favourite film last year.

Yeah, the easiest way of putting it is that if you didn't enjoy the first one you won't enjoy this one.

I read that it didn't do well in the box office on its opening weekend.

But then neither did the original, did it? I think it didn't anyway.

Who cares, nothing was going to stop me watching this and making up my own mind.

So I'm going to watch it, probably not in the cinema, our weekends are a bit too full right now, but we pretty much have a home cinema thing going in our bedroom (minus a sound system), so that's almost as good, and easier to manage.

Like Mr Badger I am going to savour Blade 2049 in peaceful isolation ... Good headphones and BluRay, hopefully avoiding any spoilers...
Poor Box Office takings in the U.S market I deem as a good sign of an intelligent thought provoking film.... Smile

Good film, not my favourite of the year, but a good film that I enjoyed. Not that popular, with only 12 people in an auditorium made for about 200, but never mind. Not as good as the first either, but with a similar atmosphere.

One thing really niggles me though, why on earth did they set it in 2049? That is way too close for so many changes and I found that irritating. A small thing but one that would have been easily avoided. Yes I know the first one was set in 2019, but that is no excuse really.

It's explicitly an alternate universe that continues the original's timeline, i.e. at the point the film is set it's 70 years diverged from reality. I'm not really sure why that's a problem?

Yep it's deliberate and explicit, hence the Pan Am advert close to the start of the film.

No not a problem, it just annoys me, odd to you two maybe, but then again I only think this is a decent film, but not as good as the original one. I would also compare it to Alien Covenant, which I found better than I expected. Unfortunately, this film was not as good as I hoped for. Both were a good way to spend some time though. Entertainment. I will not be watching it again, unlike the original, which I have watched many times.

It is a good job we all do not like the same thing eh? Wink

I enjoyed it. Perhaps a little too long but it looked great and the soundscape was pretty overwhelming at times (in a good way). Strong performances all round, particularly by The Ford. Atmosphere was spot on (more snowy than rainy though).

I'd watch it again, which is a rarity these days.

Having seen the original many many times, it's difficult to judge how well it stands alone - the salient plot points from the first film are covered but I can imagine the uninitiated saying "wut?" at times.

Blade Runner was one of the first films I saw on a vcr, and I suspect that was how a lot of folks saw it back in the day. For me the original is among a batch of films tv that I consider essential to own and so since I've not enjoyed a single film that has come out since Team America knowing there is a sequel has me worried.

I'm somewhat relieved to hear it's good, especially after hollywood did a number on ghost in the shell. What continues to amaze me about the original Blade Runner is just how much it has influenced sci-fi since it's release - will the sequel have similar impact?

I've... Not seen the original. I saw a few bits of it back in the day, but the VHS copy I got of it was so dark and grainy it was unwatchable. I did look into getting the DVD, but with 900 different versions available (And 1,800 opinions as to which to watch) I threw my hands up in disgust.

I first saw Bladerunner in High School. I think it was on "Laserdisk." It was presented to us over a week or so, with discussion sessions, in our "Science Fiction" literature class...

Yes, we had a literature class called "Science Fiction" in high school and it was as awesome as it sounds. (Taught by an equally awesome teacher who was a fighter-pilot in WW-II. Smile )
