Default Blade Runner 2049

Initial impressions are coming out now and they are overwhelmingly positive across the board. For me I was worried that it was going to be amazing or dreadful and now I can put those fears aside. These are encouraging signs and I can't wait to see it.

early Twitter reactions by the fanboys are always gushy. actual critics who've now seen it sound more divided

Lest we forget that a lot of people hated the original Blade Runner when it came out.

That being said it was screened at press junket so most of the people saying it's great are film critics, fanboy or otherwise. It's a good sign that it has more credit than Alien: Covenant anyway.

What'd everyone think?

It was beautiful. I didn't feel the ample run time. However, I'm confused about many things.


SPOILERS BELOW: Highlight to see text.

So the memory-maker girl (fantastic actress) was Harrison/Rachel's child, and what did she do -- put the false memory of the orphanage and the horse with the date on it into Detective K? So that he would find her? Or just randomly, by chance she puts that memory into a bunch of androids in the hopes that...? What? Because she doesn't think her parent is looking for her, does she, so why does she do that? Why would she fill androids with THAT false memory which isn't pleasant?

Also, so Detective K ISN'T Harrison's son, right? So the thing about twins is a lie? It seems SOOOO labored to hide a plot point that this isn't about Gosling's character.

Also, if Wallace (Jared Leto's character) wanted to create androids that could reproduce, why was his minion girl trying to kill Detective K? Shouldn't she be working in conjunction with him? To find this fantastic girl that was the offspring of two replicants?

Saw the box office returns this morning - why is Blade Runner under performing? Is it because young fans have never watched the original? It's more niche than people thought? The original was a box office flop and critics hated it....until they didn't and it became a cult classic.

it's not bringing in the under-35 crowd, for whatever reason. and it's a 2hr 45min visual jerk-off by Villenueve instead of an actual plotted story that will engage and hold viewers' attention

I don't think they've seen the original Blade Runner. It's not like Star Wars or Indiana Jones.

it's still a straightforward noir/detective story, at its core. Replicants show up on Earth; Deckard has the task of hunting them down and killing them; Deckard hunts them down and kills them

"world building" is just the icing on a (hopefully well-structured) cake, not the cake itself
