Saw it. Visually stimulating. Nothing new story/plot wise.

Finally saw this on PPV for $2.99 last night.

My girlfriend bowed out very quickly, saying it was "too syfy".  I stayed with it, but found myself getting groggy and losing interest, sorry to say.

Visuals were amazing for sure, but for me, much too dark and drab, as many futuristic movies tend to be portray society and life.  Shots and lighting, again, were brilliant, but also, again, too drab of a color palate for me.

Character and humanity were lacking big time for me, but I guess that makes sense, as there were very few human characters.  I just couldn't really get into anyone or even care all that yone's plight.

Story-wise, I thought was rather weak and WY overblown...as in there really wasn't 2 hours and 40 minutes worth of story here, and the way it ended up was also a letdown.

I think my biggest gripe was the pace of the film.  Much, much too slow and plodding.  Most scenes seemed stretched out too long, and lack of real back and forth dialogue and action, made everything seem even longer.

I'm sure this looked and sounded fantastic on the big screen, and this may be why it didn't quite do it for me, but I do have a 65" Samsung and nice sound system.

Unlikely this will get another viewing from me, which is sad, as I really was looking forward to it.

Grade = C


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

The opening for this movie was the actual original opening for the original Blade Runner.

Just a bit of trivia. There were storyboards done. They were in a book about film directing published years ago, I remember reading.

Saw it twice at the cinema and if ever a film needed to be seen on the biggest of screens with the bestest of sound systems this was it.

I loved it and the fact that it serves as a worthy sequel to the masterful original says enough about its credentials.

The slow pacing clearly won't work for some though so I get the criticisms. I didn't bother me.

Special mention to Ana De Armas also as Joi, superb performance. When she emanates for the first time and when she is convincing K that he is indeed loved and wanted were two standout scenes.

Profoundly sad as well. That ending with K lying in the snow, knowing that he is not special in the way he thought was extremely powerful, beautiful and moving.

I watched half of it and got bored. It was a while ago. I like sci-fi. I like the concept but it's old. I couldn't watch Mad Max all the way through either and I loved the originals. Some things are just best left alone. Like Guy Ritchie destroying the King Arthur story. Watching that actually made me angry. How dare he ruin such an epic story, turn it into little better than a farce. It's a story that I've loved since childhood and if I had to pick a favourite story then that would be it.
