Watched this film for the first time tonight... as soon as I saw it was on, I was legitimately like *"YES I can finally watch the Blade Runner 2049 Red Letter Media!"*
update, fat man went to prison
blade runner or blade runner 2049 are definitely not boring, unless you have the attention span of a gnat
Gaint explosions that destroy concrete but just gentlely throw people is complete bullshit and ruins movies for me.
2049 was so horribly scripted and so visually superficial that I consider it exhibit A for the case that public standards are now at an all-time low. The director's cut of Blade Runner is basically perfect, up there with the best of Herzog, Tarkovsky, Kubrick and Hitchcock. 2049 is a fatal combination of cynical cash-grab and pretentious failure.
Similar views. Really beautiful movie with cool atmosphere. But why do I care? Why do I care about the plot? The characters? They're boring, and that is why the movie is boring. I like slow paced movies where you are given time to think, but blade runner didn't inspire any thinking during all the down time.
Really late comment but if replicants only have a 4 year lifespan there is no way deckard could of been a replicant because we see Him 30 years later alive and well
How can you be bored throwing Batista trough walls and having the hot Anna De Armas as a wife. I mean, did he had is eyes closed?
What I get out of these movies (the OG and 2049) is one of the most palpable senses of immersion I’ve ever experienced from a sci-fi universe. The story matters less to me than the world in which it’s set-the movies don’t care to try to make sure we get normal pacing or an easy-to-follow story packaged in a nice little bow. It just drops you into this bleak world where events feel less like movie set pieces and more like things just happening as they might in a real world, and you just have to deal with it. I hated Blade Runner the first time I saw it, but it has grown on me a lot in a way few films ever have for me.
I liked the Tyrell building Dwarfed by the Wallace Earth Headquarters. JOI was amazing! ie 3way Holo-Replicant-Human. Fantastic ideas in a Fantastic Movie
I enjoyed Both Movies. Had Directors Blade Runner, the Movie Music Audio CD (Awesome). The New one was similar. Great ideas with the holo girl. You could be easily convinced about it being a real conscious AI.Enjoyed it. Didn't have to be a Micheal Bay/ Star Wars action star-trek type. It did us a nice conclusion to Deckard.Could of been worse. Cant expect every film to be perfect.
Jay's opinion has not aged well...
You're so millennials! That scene in the original movie where he scans the photographs isn't boring, it's iconic. Well, it was back in the 80s.
Jay and Mike have had their brains rotted by capeshit. Neither Blade Runner films are boring.
i saw it in imax and love every minute, movie was removed next week from imax :(
I watched the original Blade Runner then 2049 and I totally agree with Jay's complaints about the first movie. Harrison Ford is painful to watch on screen and it's filled with scenes that drag the runtime. 2049 is longer and yet I wasn't bored during any point. The story was a lot more engaging and there was an actual mystery to solve. 2049 is a better movie overall
I loved Blade Runner 2049. That scene where the ships fly off and the dog is left watching, amazing. The Mesa song is awesome also.
It's basically the same story again...
I disagree. The movie is derivative and unoriginal. Almost everything about it is trash
So, rental it is.
I dearly loved this movie, but the Wallace scene involving "checking the latest model" leaves me baffled, no matter how many times I watch it. Okay, he's checking over his product, the nude female replicant, and launches into a soliloquy about slave labor, children counting on fingers, and owning the stars. Who is he talking to? Luv? His voice booms, and fills the room like he's speaking in a lecture hall, with only one listening replicant, the other one doesn't seem to know what is going on, much less why Wallace is giving a monologue. So who is the monologue for? Is he really just talking aloud to himself? Was it for Luv's enrichment? And when he is done inspecting the new model, why not head out for lunch, instead of slash the woman? If he wanted her terminated after the inspection, why didn't he tell Luv to have one of the engineers come up to the show room and take her down to the labs and euthanize her? Based solely on his actions, he just wanted to kill that replicant because.... he felt like it. So between his maniacal soliloquy, and his penchant for destroying his own product with his own hands, I guess the whole scene was staged for the viewer to come to the conclusion that Wallace is a creepy megalomaniac. I can't come up with any other reason for his speech, and the stabbing, other than to show us that Wallace is messed up in the head.
I didn't know anything about Harrison Ford's character so I didn't know what the hell was going on, didn't read reviews nor knew anything about it before seeing it, I liked it, thought it was an interesting movie. My grandma and uncle didn't like it tho because they said it was boring, so I'm not surprised Mike didn't either lol
Comfy nightmare blanket lol
8:00 after complaining about it being slow and boring. One minute later he says this...
Which was first, star trek, blade runner or red dwarf for holograms walking around?
I love _Magnolia_ I've watched it over twenty times. I've put it in just to play certain scenes. I also love the music.
Did you know Kurt Russell vehicle "Soldier" is in the Blade Runner universe? You should review that film fellas.
I now want to see the Blade Runner x My Little Pony crossover.
THIS IS THE BESTEST MOVIE EVER, YOU HACKS!!!
weinstein just found guilty, bob iger steps down at disnay...
Tbqh I can pop this on whenever, don't need to prepare for it or anything. It's so satisfyingly and beautifully made that it's practically relaxing, and at the very least a fantastic representation of art in film.I also absolutely adore the fact that the resolution does not involve fantastic rebellions or foiling evil plots, but a simple human act of kindness in reuniting father and daughter. It's so comparatively humble and down-to-earth, yet given so much incredible energy by the story surrounding it, that I can hardly think of a more uplifting message: that living life as an average, ordinary person is its own brand of epic.
Mike, please re:view Dark City!
Is no one even going to mention how badly Jay butchered the word “Equestria”?
The mere fact that he said M6 names out loud absolves him from everything.
I had Crypto Sporidium once. Almost killed me.
Mobile Emitter in ST - 1996. Light-Bee in Red Dwarf - 1991. Sorry.
That's the thing about Bladerunner movies, they aren't about the mystery.
Thought he was gonna miss the Voyager parallel. Can always count on Mike for the Trek references.
Everyone said this movie was boring but I didn't think so at all! I had a great time watching it. I wish there were more.
i neeed to re-watch original Blade Runner, ,,,,, AE VAN VOGT kinda premises,,, allegorical stories set in sci fi Words andImages, less about the Technology per se,,, like gadgets etc,,, more like the Replicants are like just the babies "created" in labs etc thats going on , has been going on? etc
I dislike just about any superhero style film. This is soooooo much better and compelling. Seen it loadsss of times
TRON:LEGACY WAS THE BEST SEQUEL EVER MADE!
I assumed Decker was a replicant in original because he seemed a lot like the guy giving the test in a couple ways to me, and also how resistant to being effected by damage he was , similar to the others.
Cmon… we haven't had to worry about Cryptosperidium since the early 90's
This movie could have done without Jared Leto
@Max du Nord Except if you think about the dialogue , you will understand that it's for nerdier blade Runner fans. Wallace dialogue is very deep and interesting. I used to hate Leto charecter that it weakened the pacing. But overtime , I rewatch those scenes just because of the depth, Wallace Motivations etc. His charecter is truly amazing
True. That's the one & only weak point of this amazing movie.
Red Letter Media makes quality content, because they are quality folks.
Villeneuve is pronounced Veel-nerve
i have decided this film (Blade Runner) belongs in this category (detective movie) .. the film's failure is: the film doesn't fulfil the requirements of the category./CriticsRequireMoviesBelongInStandardCatagoriesInOrderToBeSubjectToAnalysisRelativeToStandardTropes
Did we ever learn who let the dogs out
The Level of boredom a viewer experiences when watching this film is inverse proportional to his level of intelligence.
man i dont get this type of critisism (ik its an opinion) the whole ''boring, nothing happens'' thing. Both movies are slow, yes, but do you really think it'll me easy for the audience to really understand and dive in to the motif of every character without some time to think? time to appreciate the landscape, the shots, the emotional implications of every scene. Go watch a Fast and Furious film if you want quick shots and no time to process the garbage you're watching. Mike said something similar about Escape from New York, boring and nothing happens, and shows this are basically not his type of film
Both Blade Runner movies were amazing films. You guys missed the mark.
Jay Baumann deserves to be sucked dry. He is the epitome of hotness.
In my first attempt to watch magnolia I gave up during the opening scene with John c reily and a woman shouting while the theme song played as loud as possible in the background
Star Trek ripped off William Gibson’s Idoru
I loved this movie ... didn't find it boring at all. But, can't agree 100% of the time with RLM but 99.99% is almost as good. :)
I read the book do androids dream of electric sheep watched the og and then 2049 not for a second was I bored tho the book was way better but no surprise there
I remember when my friend and I were in the box office. We were going to buy tickets for this movie. And the guy who was selling the tickets said "Are you sure you want to see this movie ? It's really long and boring." We didn't listen to him and we both the tickets anyway....We left the theater after the first half.
born from a replicunt
Star Trek stole the mobile emitter for holograms from Red Dwarf!
Tristram Evans 🤤
these guys are idiots on this one....big fail....boring...fuck out of here.
What I love about this movie is every VFX shot is special because they are only in key parts, not during the whole movie.
8:25 Mike's face ....
How can you find blade runner boring?
Blade Runner 2049 is better than its predecessor in every way. The original gets credit for painting the picture of the setting, but this movie is a flat out improvement. You definitely have to be in a mood to settle in and watch this though.
Wow this isn’t funny or insightful 👎🏻
The only scene I think should've been shorter was the fight in the casino with the glitching Elvis hologram
I loved 2049 - it's by far the best sci fi movie of the decade for me. One of my favourite films.
I take many movies for granite
Dark city better than Bladerunner? And what about Prisoners by Villeneuve? Come on guys, try harder
In my humble opinion, you guys need a little more tolerance for slow paced storytelling.
you guys complain about movies being to much like dumb marvel shit all the time but when a fucking masterpiece like blade runner comes out the first thing you say is "its boring" and you even say the origional blade runner is boring i get the feeling you have no idea what your talking about when it comes to anything that isnt a horror film
Bladerunner 2049 is NOT boring, it's just that your mind is incapable of filling in the gaps.
It occurred to me Deckard couldn't possibly be a replicant, because in the sequel he's clearly lived beyond his four year service life.
Only the Nexus 6 models had 4 year life spans because they were so complex they were becoming emotionally unstable and unpredictable after that time. If Deckard was a prototype like Rachel he could easily not have the planned obsolescence.
This is the best movie I've seen in years!
You guys live in Milwaukee?? No way!! I love these reviews!
