Blade Runner 2049

I'm going to watch it on Tuesday. Love the trailer and have only read good things about it.
Anybody seen it, yet?

Re: Blade Runner 2049

Haven't watched it, but one of our best trusted film critics called it the best sequel since The Godfather 2, so I'll definitely give it a go. I feel like reading the book and watching the first film first though!

Re: Blade Runner 2049

Just rewatched Blade Runner. Geez, this film never ceases to totally stun me. Now I am even more hyped up for Tuesday.

Re: Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 is amazing in every aspect. Although personally, I don't dig Ryan Gosling all, and I haven't changed my mind after seeing this movie either.

Re: Blade Runner 2049

I watched the first one again last week, and hope to see the second one this week.

Re: Blade Runner 2049

I had recently watched the original on the back of reading 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep' - Glad I had, I would definitely recommend a refresher before watching 2049. The new one is great, it'll never have the wow factor of the original but everything about it is really good and the way they've fleshed out the world created in the original is lovely, in a dystopian kind of way.

Re: Blade Runner 2049

Oh, enjoy Kenan.! Have you seen the original recently? If not, I highly rcommend doing so this afernoon. A fresh memory of the old definetly enhances the appreciation of the new.

I regret that I did not catch the OV on the big screen.

Re: Blade Runner 2049

I won't be watching the original right now, and it's been a couple of years, but I've seen it a few times, and read the novel... fingers crossed I'll not miss too much ;)

Re: Blade Runner 2049

Btw, we decided to watch the original Blade Runner last night... Ok, don't you think that Deckard basically rapes Rachael? He doesn't allow her to leave, he forces himself upon her, and tells her what to say (kiss me). She doesn't seem to have much of a choice! Was this supposed to be a romantic scene?

Re: Blade Runner 2049

I dunno what it was supposed to be but I am quite sure did not consider it rape back then. I surely do now. Made me mightily uncomfy ...

Re: Blade Runner 2049

Mighty uncomfortable indeed. It's so weird how that was appropriate not even 30 years ago.
