From rotten tomatoes:

BLADE RUNNER 2049 (2017)
Blade Runner 2049
TOMATOMETER
88%
AUDIENCE SCORE
83%
Critic Consensus: Visually stunning and narratively satisfying, Blade Runner 2049 deepens and expands its predecessor's story while standing as an impressive filmmaking achievement in its own right.

The rare sequel that truly merits its existence, updating and expanding the themes of the 1982 original to bring them from the 20th century into the 21st.

Blade Runner 2049 is heavy with portentous and pretentious hoo-ha.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

Releasing a Sci-Fi sequel 35 years after the original and managing to capture the design and atmosphere as seamlessly is no easy feat. But you can tell that everyone involved here wanted to do this right. The cast is excellent, with quite a few cameos from the original and Ford's best performance in years. The film enjoys its own slowness a little too much, which can challenge audience's patience from time to time, but the story throws out bread crumbs to a really fascinating riddle often enough to keep you interested in the classic detective story, much like in the original. Especially the final act is really rewarding and worthy of the big shoes it has to fill. The camera work and the sound design are particularly breath-taking. A challenging and philosophical, beautiful and ugly, smarting and engaging Sci-Fi thriller that will stick to your mind for quite a while.

Also, this interview with Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling was hilarious. British interviewers are the best!

I thought it was brilliant :thumb:

I'd say any fan of Sci-Fi would enjoy it. The acting, cinematography and soundtrack are all top notch, definitely see on the big screen.

It's too bad this movie is under-performing at the box office. I think the length and vague previews are turning people off.

Just saw Wonder Woman. What a piece of shit that was. And I'm told this is the best DC movie they've made. That'll be a 2.5/10 right there. Some shots were good, and in some scenes I thought the lighting was really good, but man... the acting, the scenes with """"Dr. Poison"""" and even the sound design were fucking awful.

I think Wonder Woman was hugely over-rated but it's a lot better then the previous two DC comics Superman (and Batman) movies.

One the other hand, I was pleasantly surprised how entertaining and outright fun the new Spiderman movie was. Infinitely better then the last two horrible Spiderman flicks and arguably only second best behind the second one with Doctor Octopus.

I'm going to try to see Blade Runner Wednesday.

thanks Perkana and Xixen47, Iooking forward to checking it out. Pretty surprised to hear it's not doing well at the box office, but then again that was the case with the first one too .

Saw it last night with a friend. We splurged on the $25 VIP screening room with recliner seats, fancy sound and screen. There was food and bar service too.

I thought this film was brilliant. The film is visually stunning and must be seen at a movie theatre for the full effect of its beauty.

The running time is a little long, but I never found myself checking my watch. A couple of times I felt a little bored by the story line but that's a minor complaint. The film is very cerebral and continues to ask the same question from the first film about what it means to be human.

Denis Villeneuve has done a superb job with this film- bravo!

Ryan Gosling was pretty great in this movie too. I'm not really a fan of his, and will admit that I had some doubts about him being cast for this film. I think this is probably his best role of his career so far.

I definitely want to see this movie again.

Yeah, that Spanish actress was the worst! But I did enjoy the movie. It helped that I watched it next to my 9 year old niece. And Gal Gadot is so hot! I love her :heart:
She's added on my woman crush list :lol:

I thought that WW was the best of a bunch of shitty movies WB had been churning out in their DCMU. But that's not saying much. I gave it a 3/10. Let's hope JL is better but I doubt it will be.

I saw "It" over the weekend, I enjoyed it but didn't think it was all that scary. Relied too much on surprise scares rather than building suspense. My boss saw Blade Runner and hated it. :noclue:
i want to see mother and three billboards soon

I finally watched it yesterday. I went to an early show because I knew it would be long, but I did fall asleep for a few minutes. First half was very slow and the dialogue was too soothing (plus dark atmosphere I snoozed a bit). Second half was better. I digged Ryan Gosling but was a bit disappointed in Jared Leto. What you see in the trailer are his best scenes. Have to agree with the cinematography and mood brought me back to the first one.

I'm on a horror/scary movie kick as Halloween approaches.
Watched The Babadook yesterday.
I thought it was way better than It.

Cool, it wasn't until today someone told me that it's almost 3 hours long, seems excessive. The last 3 hour movie I watched was JFK many years ago, nearly killed mysef in the process

Has anyone seen "Coco" yet? I've read good reviews from friends, but I'm afraid to watch it since "Día de muertos" is one of my favorite holidays and don't want to see a bastardized version of it by the Pixar folk.

I finally watched it tonight. Highly recommend it. For Art: Gael García Bernal lent his voice to one of the main characters.

Just saw "Baby Driver". Well, the first 10 minutes, approximately.

Absolutely insufferable.

1/10.
