    I love Grace, but she's taking Blade Runner 2049 and plugging into the "blockbuster formula" and finding it wanting. Well no shit. It's not a blockbuster movie. When I saw it, the theater was half full, but everyone was respectful and quiet and absorbed in the film. It was a great night. It's a great movie. If it's not your cup of tea there's always the Avengers.

    It is odd how ALCON avoided reaching out to the small but dedicated fan base that has been waiting 35 years for anything. This group could have been used by ALCON to generate NEW fans. The original is mainly a male demographic due to when it came out and the cine-file and film making community raising BLADE RUNNER to genius status in film making with IN camera SFX. The film making community that likes to GEEK OUT on Blade Runner has been mostly male till recent years, thus not appealing to a non tech female audience.

    Everything you said here about the Blade Runner movies repulses me. It does not repulse me to this channel, but rather to the vile attitude of the movie industry as a whole, as well as the cynical critics and brainless "mainstream viewers." It hurts me to know that not only do most viewers have the inability to see artistry when it's right in front of their eyes, but that the movie industry bases a majority of their craft off of feedback gathered from these morons, through test audiences. They have not yet realized that different types of people should be used as test audiences for different types of movies.

    Too slow and long....or as I like to say, "Immersive world building." I'm thankful studios occasionally take chances on movies like this. Otherwise, we'd never get anything as wonderful as 2049.

    Art is dead in Hollywood because of people like that poor girl always babbling about box office numbers. What does she suggest ?
    "Shorter film ; less complicated plot ; gender parity ; more black dudes ; more action ; ..." Yeah now the movie should do great at the box office, right?!
    Oh but look ! Now it's the same medicore asepticised crap we get usually fed with! There goes a great movie and a future classic...
    Ergo: art is dead. That girl's reasoning killed it.

    Though visually stunning you could have cut at least 30 minutes of the movie and still leave every scene in the final cut that's how long some of the shots were. It's a movie made for enthusiasts of the medium not the casual Super-Hero-Cinema-Goers...

  • Jack Yutthaphum Mietinen

    There are so many reason why the Blade Runner 2049 failed but I am gonna mention some of it that wasn't said. The movie came too late, the younger generation and the casual movie goers don't know enough about this cult classic that it appeal to them. The other reason is the mainstream movie goers and the younger generation has developed a bad taste easier digestible movies such as Marvels and other braindead actions that lacks deep content, well developed characters, atmosphere and being philosophical. It's become a sad story that stupid mainstream piece of trash without intellectual understanding are dictating the success of this movie and destroying movie as an art form and the creative freedom that all movie should be allowed to express. Simply put it's bad taste like everyone goes to Burger King to eat a burger instead of burger restaurant that offers Micheline star taste. I couldn't care less about the business aspect of it because of the mainstream piece of trash, I am glad this movie came out and it was one of my best movie experience this year.

    I really enjoy your reviews Grace. They are always so thoughtful, smart, enthusiastic, and on-point. I really liked the new Blade Runner movie, it was full of jaw-dropping beautiful and poignant moments, but like you said it wasn't a smart business decision. The amount of money that was invested was baffling to imagine when considering the risks of destroying an entire company and tanking such investors contributions. I'm still thrilled to see how well "It" has been doing too. I really hope they don't screw up the sequel. Anyways, you're awesome Grace. Keep up the great work!

    I understand the problems with marketing however I completely disagree about creative freedom being a bad thing. You're meant to understand movies and everything is not about box office. Blade Runner and other films such as the Shinning were initial flops but are now considered classics. This is a fateful, artist, beautiful film and better than any comic book block buster (and I'm a cb fan)

    Both Blade Runners did well in Europe. Not so much in the USA. But then again, the US public elected Donald Trump as president, so no great surprise there. Horribly shallow analysis. Blade Runner 2049 will make money in the end.

    >you’re asking so much of your audience to sit there for such a long time
    No, you’re not. In the age of binge-watching where people watch entire shows in a weekend, this isn’t much to ask.
    Also you couldn’t misunderstand the history of Blade Runner (the original) more.

  • CavemanJesus4Life

    The Problem with Idris Elba is, he's doing the wrong films. He had some success with No Good Deed, and Beast of No Nation. But that's all he is good for. He's not a leading man. Same as Mahershala Ali. Great actor, just not a leading one.

  • CavemanJesus4Life

    Creative Freedom should be given to Directors, its a give and take. Sometimes something great comes out of CF, and sometimes it flops. Its a gamble, but all directors should have CF to make films.
    Guaranteed all the films from the 40's to 80's would bomb at the box office now. If someone remade Titanic it would bomb today.
    Without Creative Freedom we wouldn't have films Inception.

    People don't go the films because of star power. They go because they like the film style and what they watch in the promos. The blade runner should have introduced more violence and fights in the trailers. By the way, most Americans love to see guns, explosions and violence in the movies. . Besides, the film is considered a box office failure because it was too expensive to make and so it needs much more audience than other type of movie.

    Why did you have to bring race into it? Quite an insult to assume that audiences are childish and spiteful enough to not go see a movie just because there are no actors with a matching skin color to theirs in the film?

    You can't make ART "quadrant"! You can't let buiseness model make decidions for ART! If buiseness wins - art dies. We, as audience can't let that happen. We must save this film. It was easily BEST film of 2017. Why was it so good. EXACLY becouse it asked so much of its audience.

  • Jim Slav

    I love how: "art in film is not dead" is said in the same video where you utter the words: "those were important dollars" in humble deference to how commercial your experience with the original film should be. Irony may not be dead, but film art sure is.

  • Diego Oddi

    Enjoyed this video, however I don't get black people or women not going to the theater because there's no black actors/actress in it. I'm not saying is not the case (it probably is, at least in part), just that is somewhat humiliating that one can't be attracted by challenging stories because of it. I don't want to be mean, but I feel that anyone not going to see Blade Runner 2049 because he/she feel their race/gender to be not represented by the actual actors in the movie, well, they are too dumb to recognize and understand a good story anyway.

  • hump frog

    Everyone gets it: you don't like Blade Runner movies!
    But I'm so thankful Blade Runner 2049 was made despite it not being a major blockbuster!
    I disagree with your opinion that business & art are mandatorily symbiotic.
    'Money-making at the box office' should not factor into the enjoyment or quality of a film!
    Cheers!

  • DeusExAstra

    2049 was not boring. A bit too long, yes, but boring no. I think the problem in the box office might be mostly the marketing, not the other things mentioned here.

  • John Watson
    John Watson Year ago

    There is more to the box office for a film than it's USA cinema release there is the international box office then there the back end which is the 4k blu ray , blu ray , DVD, streaming , cable showings & national tv showings , with all these being worldwide then put into this TIME which the original film had in spades most great films ( and Blade Runner 2049 is a great film ) usually transcend the time of release and become immortal .

  • Johnathan Henning

    Another thing to consider is that when it comes to the original, most of the people who have seen it still did not like it. It's not just that many people have not seen any of the multiple cuts of the movie, but that Blade Runner is not a popular film among people who've seen it. Not just back in '81 when it came out, but since then, for everyone who liked the movie, they've shown it to ten or twenty people who really don't get it.
    This is because fans of Blade Runner really can't see why the movie would not appeal to average or even above average moviegoers. After all this time - after all the movies, good and mostly bad, that have been influenced by Blade Runner - Blade Runner still has a limited appeal and it grows more limited every year.
    So if you're opinion of Blade Runner is shaded by being introduced to it by an enthusiastic fan and never really have seen what's great about it, the marketing of the sequel gives you no reason to see it. Honestly, if you don't like the original, there is no reason to see the sequel.

  • sexy_jess
    sexy_jess Year ago

    I think you’ll missing the point Grace, Blade Runner 2049 was made by Blade Runner Fans (Denis Villeneuve has stated quite clearly that he absolutely loved the original Blade Runner flick) for Blade Runner connoisseurs, which is just as well, cause I’m one of those connoisseurs. But Blade Runner whether you’ll talking about the original movie or in this particular instance on this masterpiece in film making ie; Blade Runner 2049 it is and will always will be a cult movie, these movies will never be a franchise say like Bond for instance.
    And besides I can’t ever see Denis Villeneuve, Hampton Fancher, Roger Deakins and Ridley Scott ever coming together AGAIN to make a third Blade Runner movie, when this movie could’ve easily been utterly dreadful. But fortunately it wasn’t. I can’t see them ever risking the good name that the original and now this movie has required from connoisseurs like me to do with Blade Runner in making a risky third Blade Runner movie. It’s not gonna happen.

  • N1otAn1otherN1ame

    What most reviews and "aftermath" videos don't address is that Bladerunner 2049 is NOT a great movie.
    It pushes visual appeal to the max and is shallow and superficial storywise.
    This was my first thought coming out of the movie theatre.
    It won't be a classic in thirty years like the first movie and it deserved the bad box-office results.

  • Afonso Luiz
    Afonso Luiz Year ago

    Your arguments about BR2049 are so on point and it makes me so upset because this movie was so good, just like anything Villeneuve gets involved in. He's clearly not interested in making movies "more commercial", which unfortunately will get many people bored and not interested in the amazing things he has to offer.

  • ThickLikePeanutButta

    The only lesson is for the producers to understand their market better....
    Not for the film's creators to compromise its vision for the sake of making the producers profit...
    This video makes me sick and it's this very mentality which is in fact killing cinema...breaking down what it did wrong and where it failed to generate the same broad moron audience that watch comic superhero films...
    Let's make sure every fucking film ticks the same boxes so the biggest amount and same fucking retards go to watch this film...
    Fuck artistry, diversity, legacy, dignity and respect...thats all overrated anyway

    It wasn't Idris's fault, Kate Winslet was just chewing the scenery in that plane crash movie. I know it's in the plane crash/survival genre, but even in the 30 second clip she seemed really distracted/phoning it it/seemed like a contractual obligation thing. The stakes, if you can believe it, just didn't seem high enough. The editing of the trailer alone couldn't hide that hammy script. I bet even she was cringing as she said her lines. Don't blame Idris for a bad script, hammy soundtrack, bad acting on his co-star's part. I wish he was bigger too but you have to consider the projects/people surrounding the projects that he's in as well.

    Most people don't want slow paced, deep narrative, intricately constructed, well written, complex stories that make you think, they want to go see Star Wars. And no grace Catherine Kennedy's shit isn't alive, or at least what counts isn't, people are just so blinded by nostgalia they can't see the train wreck that it's become.

  • Darren Moore

    Grace I felt compelled to make this comment. To me I don't understand the logic behind your statement that the reason Idris's last two movies did not do well is because of backlash from him being considered for being the new Bond. If your logic is true that suggests that people would not see his movies just because a black actor was considered for a role that has been played by white actors. Are you saying people are that shallow or prejudice or (fill in the blank). Maybe the lack of success is just because the movies have not appealed to people? Personally I saw Dark Tower and thought it was not a good movie, very flawed. As for The Mountain Between Us, I plan to see it, at some point.
