Hmm. So it's a sequel, not a reboot. I remember being somewhat disappointed with the original though.

Me too. I found it rather boring and hard to follow. I hope this sequel is better.

But still the cyberpunk aesthetics was what made the original memorable for many of us. Yeah, aesthetics have nothing to do with the storytelling, unfortunately.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

the cinematography is nice but not a patch on the original and it looked pretty cheap when Ford stepped into view.

This is getting motherfucking ridiculous.

 

Power Rangers. The Mummy. Snow White. Snow White. Spiderman. Snow White. Spiderman. Jumanji. Predator. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Ghost in the Shell. Logan's Run. Honey I Shrunk the Kids. It. Fucking Memento. Live action Aladdin. Live action The Lion King. American Werewolf in London. Hellraiser. Batman. Oh sorry, The Batman. Cube. Dungeons and Dragons (is Scar in it again?) Inspector Gadget. Flashing 'Fucking' Gordon. Friday the 13th. Men in Black. Scarface. Stargate. Starship... Starship Troopers? Again?!

 

And now - Blade Runner.

 

No, Hollywood. Bad. Bad. No biscuit.

I loudly predicted the second wave of the Global Financial Crisis would begin by the 31st of March 2017. But I was wrong! Observe my well-deserved public humiliation here, here and here. Let this be a warning to all of you who try to guess the future. Yes, that means you, reading this now! Put that prediction back in your pocket! Do it now, before it's too late! (Also check out my userpage, it's even funnier.)

^ Whilst I tend to agree, I'm glad they are remaking this. It is over 30 years old now and films these days tend to be faster paced, more engaging with better visual effects. 

 

It's crazy that they are remaking films like Memento though.

Blade Runner 2049 disappoints at US box office

Blade Runner 2049 has made far less than expected on its opening weekend at the US box office.

The $31.5m (£24.1m) total will be a major disappointment for distributor Warner Bros, which had projected ticket sales of between $45m and $50m.

Its 163-minute running time, limiting the number of screenings, was said to be one factor in the under-performance.

How can a movie about everything that could go wrong in the future be so beautiful.

Masterpiece.

It could have been at least 20 minutes shorter without sacrificing anything of value. The film seemed like a self-indulgent director's cut.

I thought it was pretty slow and boring. But that's what I thought about the original too.

 love sci fi, but I have never managed to watch the whole of the first blade runner directors cut all the way through without falling asleep. So if this one has captured that part of the original then i'll probably give it a miss.
