omg, what a beautiful film. A bit long at nearly 3 hours but it was captivating. I do like how Denis Villenuva knew how much fans were scrutinizing him and could feel the pressure from it and used it to make a great film. They used the right amounts of characterization and mystery and it was jsut slightly less noir than the original. Then there's Hans Zimmer's score which paid great homage to Vangelis. It was funny because the score was a lot of this in the film: "Oh, wow, what a pretty--WWWUUUAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!"

Anyway, I was quite pleased with it.

I'll be seeing this tomorrow. The vast majority of film critics are heaping praises on this film and last I checked it had a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes!

It sucks though that they couldn't get Vangelis to score this film.

They did have Vangelis' "Tears in Rain" in the movie, and credited it in the end.

It came up in this article:
https://www.cnet.com/news/blade-runner-2049-observer-game-rutger-hauer/

and despite the dodgey source, the game itself seems pretty good, and steam reviews are positive....wishlisted

Can't wait to see it. I read that some old faces appear, not just Deckard's. And thankfully while Deckard is integral to the plot, he's not the sole focus. I love Ford, but the movie should have enough link to the original to be thought provoking without being just another overdone tie-in.

I wish that the original Blade Runner game for PC would be released on GOG. I still have the CDs but I don't think I can get them to run.

So did anyone else see it yet? What did you think?

You've never seen Blade Runner, F4U?

Oh, and no, don't see Director's cut, see the original version if you can find it. The Director's cut spits on some of the lore. You'll find the versions hotly contested if you look around. =)

The original theatrical release has that HORRID narration. Goodness no. Scott's vision of the film is better represented by the director's cut. Bladerunner was never a movie made by lovers of the story on which it was based. Scott thought it was a bad story to make a movie on.

Narration vs. screwing up the story... I'll take narration. I deny Scott's add-on nouveau vision.

Then you believe that the 1982 film was supposed to represent the literary work translated to the big screen?

It wasn't ever intended to be. The film is based on the story only.

I like the 1982 film, that's all I need. Don't care what it was intended to be or not, what was made was done, and any changes thereafter are revisionist history.

Agreed. Far better and you learn more about the world. Adds atmosphere, even in Ford's monotone people complain about. In fact, because of it.

Saw the new movie and have a lot of thoughts about it. It was good for sure, but hardly called for 2 hrs 45 mins or so. Not bad, but not nearly as atmospheric as the original. Well cast IMO.
Glad I saw it, but given the choice of seeing one of these movies in the future, I'll still watch the original.
Got stuck seeing it in 3D. Nice job of 3D, but it didn't add anything. After a while you don't even notice.
Many more thoughts, but I don't want to spoil anything. It's worth seeing in the theater, but lower expectations a bit.

Its a great movie. Definitely a worthy sequel to the original classic and an excellent movie on its own.

Definitely a little bit disappointed to see a mostly empty theater. Its people like us killing excellent sci fi movies in a way. They are going to go the way of flight sims when we keep nitpicking really good sci fi movies to death. Its already far less of a draw the summer super hero popcorn movies for a general crowd.

Pretty soon all we will get will be disney formulaic sci fi movies at this rate.
