    BLADE RUNNER 2049 trailer

    Uh...is a holy shit warranted? The 1982 original is one of my favorite films ever, and I'm glad to see the sequel is being done by Villeneuve, who's made some pretty awesome movies so far in his career.

    Do you like the director's cut or theater release? I have the director cut at home but haven't watched it in a while. I wonder how they approach it since there is a vast difference between the two.

    The directors cut, and it's not close. The original has all the voice overs, which come off as pretty corny. The directors cut also has the very important unicorn scene, and I prefer the ending as well.

    Though reviewers are blocked until next week to release their official reviews, they have posted general reactions to the film. All accounts point to Blade Runner 2049 being a masterpiece of science fiction cinema. I'm ****ing excited. Can't wait to see it next week.

    There are also 3 anime' short stories that are supposed to fill in some of the time between the first movie and this one. I think they are supposed to be on crunchyroll anime' website.

    Yes... was hoping a local movie house would play the original around release but nothing since a showing in August.

    Just will have to go ahead and buy it I guess. been on my list for a while.

    Yep. Actually, there are 3 short films, and 1 of them is an anime. Two have already been released, and they are pretty damn cool. The third will be the anime short.

    Just watched it. Was very satisfying. I'm still processing it, but I thought it was awesome.

    I haven't watched it yet but the reviews saying it was slow must not have watched the first one. The first is a great movie but people expecting non stop action would be disappointed.

    Yeah, those people should just catch the next Fast and the Furious movie. In the meantime I think Nickleback is touring again.**

    Lol.

    Some people can't appreciate an actual story that builds. Not everything needs to blow up every 10 minutes. Our attention span is for 10 minute intervals now, it is hard for people to actually pay attention for 2 hours. Fast & the Furious or the Transformers are crap movies. They are just cool to watch the special affects or stunts but as far as an actual plot, there isn't much there. Transformers seems like they write the script as they go to match whatever Michael Bay wants to blow up. Ok, getting off my soapbox now.

    Well said, and totally agree. Just think if a film like The Godfather was released today, how would it be received? And Blade Runner 2049 is a great example of that phenomenon in today's cinema culture: it's being overwhelmingly praised by reviewers, yet it is bombing at the box office because people don't want to be challenged to think when going to the movies.
