    if you plan to watch this movie then you have to watch it in 5.1 surround sound.

    Blade runner 2049 really missed the point and message of the first film and while not bad, it did fall flat. The original was a simple story that asked some hard questions. The sequel is a complicated messy story that asks a bunch of shallow questions. I don't get why it's being praised as "the thinking man's movie" or "smart scifi" when it's not. It's the thinking man's movie for people who don't really think as much as they think they do, i.e, pseudo intellectuals or pretentious people.

    2:15 This is why I didn't want to watch the movie when it came out. Maybe I will watch it now.

    “Blade Runner 2049” to me is like what “Lawrence of Arabia” is to
    Stephen Spielberg.
    When the film came out on TV (you still had to pay for it) I watched the first few minutes over and over again, before the !PAY FOR IT! text came up! It’s rated R so my mom never let me watch it in theaters and so i lied (regret it) that I was paying for like some PG movie but actually watched 2049 in my room. It’s my favorite movie if not the most important one to me... And
    “The Place Beyond the Pines”

    the one kinda flaw with this movie is harrison ford
    he looks like he hasn't given a shit about being famous for like 20 years
    i get the impression he does movies to keep up the lifestyle and nothing more

    I think this is the first time I’ve ever disagreed with your review. Just a little, because I think this film is a solid Awesometacular. 🤙🏼 - I wasn’t a huge fan of the original. I liked it, but this was far superior. I wonder, has your opinion has changed after repeat viewing(s)?

  • ABreathOfReason
    ABreathOfReason 8 months ago +1

    I like the film a lot and haven't seen the first. My only disappointment is that the main plot that unfolds is a BIG deal to the (wallace corp?)... but the way the movie ends it MUST be setting up for a sequel, because the movie wasn't about what happened in the end. It was about the consequence of what happened in the end, except it never got o that consequence and the key players are still alive and well.

    • Mr. Chopsticks
      Mr. Chopsticks 8 months ago +1

      ABreathOfReason I like the sequel but doze off when watching he first. I love the worldbuilding from the first, every little detail of the world but the pacing is dead slow like a snail. So yeah, the pacing on the sequel is a lot better.

  • TeamCJH28
    TeamCJH28 8 months ago

    I’m actually not a fan of the original. “Tears in the rain” is well done but the rest was very boring for me. However, THIS film is quite possibly my favorite movie of all time. I can’t even put it into words other than I LOVE THIS FILM.

  • Noname Nameless
    Noname Nameless 9 months ago +1

    Am surprised to what point this movie is boring and pointless all the way....ultra slow paced whilst not even achieving to trigger the slightest interest in the characters or background story. Took me three times to finally make it through the movie...I fell asleep during the first 2 attempts basically always about 1h10min in..... the most boring, uninteresting, non-touching kinda pointless "story" ever...and there s not even a story or a greater theme....most overrated movie of 2017 by a huge margin

    DaBIONICLEFan 9 months ago +1

    Anyone just find this film extremely boring? Such a great book, but my god, such a tedious film

  • Fearofthemonster
    Fearofthemonster 9 months ago +1

    I got bored and fell asleep in the first blade runner so I cant remember much about that movie. I also got bored and slept in the middle of this movie. 2 Days later I decided(reluctantly) to finish it. It is still boring.

    • Mr. Chopsticks
      Mr. Chopsticks 8 months ago

      Fearofthemonster the first one is boring to me as well, love the world but it is dead slow like a snail. The second one had better pacing for me and it’s a 3 hour film.

    I will say that it is not the best movie ever made, but it is my favorite movie of all time, hands down. I am completely acknowledging the flaws of this movie's pacing and how it might not live up to the original, but those flaws are the imperfections I like to see in movies. Like people, movies and directors aren't perfect. The beauty of making mistakes is being able to make them charmingly acceptable. This movie was beautiful. I REALLY regret not seeing it in theaters.

  • DeathCreationist

    The movie didn't need to be as long as it is, you could easily have cut 10-15 mins off of it

    I was actually pleasantly surprised by how well Blade Runner 2049 was handled. With so many sequels and re-makes and re-imaginings being so shitty I definitely thought BR 2049 was going to be yet another heavily CGI-ed action porn with a flimsy story line and barely there character development. So glad I was wrong on that one. Great job to everyone involved in the making of this film.

    This `character`, hosting this video, makes points that I agree with, about Blade Runner & its mythology; but, they are far too damned obnoxious for me to even have an inkling of a desire to watch other videos from the same channel.

    I had the person I took with to see 2049 see the original version, theater cut first, then once she like that, we went to see 2049. She enjoyed it. I do think it might not be a stand alone type movie. The box office did not do it any favors for that argument.

  • DeepEye1994
    DeepEye1994 11 months ago

    Some detractors said that this movie should have left Deckard and Rachael out and be just its own stand-alone adventure set in the Blade Runner universe... To that I say NO, FUCK YOU.
    Go invent your own science fiction story about humans hunting robots, don't piggy back on Blade Runner's popularity. You can do it with Star Wars if you want to, but Blade Runner isn't Star Wars with some kind of huge unexplored universe with tons of characters to use and many possibilities beyond the Skywalker family, it was simply the personal story of Deckard in a dystopian future, so if you're doing a sequel, you better include him and show us what happened to him next instead of using Blade Runner's setting as a fancy sandbox for your shitty police story.

    Was Joi real or just a hologram program responding to what K wanted her to be? The giant hologram calling him "a good Joe" suggested to me that she wasn't real, just real to him until that bitch stepped on her.

    Ok, I waited for this movie to come out on TV (HBO). It took me about 3 1/2 hours to watch this (due to rewinding). Holy shit. This movie was beautiful. From the beginning to the very end. At some points, I was like... They could've made this into 2 separate movies. Then, had to smack myself and realize that we're going on an adventure and the director trust the audience enough to grab hold, bite down, and enjoy this Sci-Fi epic Opera. I was not dissapointed at all. The tone, the pace, the story, the thought provoking arch of the protagonist "what does it all mean?!?" I will need to watch this movie again, then probably one more time. But, after the first viewing. The ending was just.... Muah. "Beautiful isn't it..."

    This is what has become acceptable, the norm; yelling and quick cuts to give the video more "energy".
    It is so fing annoying.

    2049 was good, not great. A worthy sequel to the original, which also wasn't great.I got tired of the bleakness in both films. Bleak has a place in SF and I don't dislike it. It just isn't my favorite Future. Worth seeing once.

    Clearly the best film of 2017. I liked the original alot, but I don't know which one I like more. The sequel looks phenomenal, and it features the best acting I've ever seen! Still, Bladerunner did many of the same things, and was both tense and interesting. These kinds of movies are getting fewer and far between, so we should appreciate them for as long as they exist.

    I didnt really get the original i only watched it once (yesterday) then immediately purchased this and i enjoyed it a lot more... however you do really need to have seen the first to understand the second.
    This is by far the most stunning movie I've ever seen and probably the longest. But i really enjoy the detectiveyness of this one.
    I didn't really understand what was happening in the original but hey... i might get it a bit more on second viewing

  • SamWallace Art

    I like how they treated Deckard as if he was any other character rather than some hero among men. Compared to Force Awakens, where when he shows up the music swells and it's this big moment; in Blade Runner he shows up and he's just another guy scared of getting his stuff wrecked, and it that's the perfect use of his character.

    As much as I love this movie I almost wish that they had cut the running time down a bit so that a wider audience could appreciate it. Of course if they did that then it wouldn't be the same movie that I love so much.
    Nevermind, this is a stupid-ass comment. :p

    The movie was an epic piece of boredom. Absolutely predictable, monotonic homage to the original movie (every single cut). Bladerunner 2049 somehow looks worse then the original movie, which is weird considering how much time passed.

    It took me three viewings to fully appreciate 2049, whereas the first film I felt I had a feeling for after 1 (though it gets better after a second and third time). 2049 just left me speechless the first two. Like, I knew I'd seen something good, but it was just so much to take in. After viewing three, I think it's even better than the first. The director is better than Scott, the cinematography was better, the visuals were unforgettable, and that score... Wow. I also loved how Harrison Ford was utilized. They could have easily had him as the star to pander to us, but he was there as the plot needed. 2049 is one of the best sequels ever, and I will forever sing its praise.

  • GhostPants

    I think I need to watch the original again. I do remember watching and enjoying the original but there is a lot I don't remember. With that said, even though the original was a bit lost on me for the first watch I did thoroughly enjoy 2049 and it absolutely felt like a sequel rather than an action cash-grab like I thought it would be.
