My completely objective assessment? My theory's better.

What if both theories are true?

I guess I just don't get the time-jump idea. The time period of these films doesn't affect the story really -
Sure the first BR is set in 2019, but it doesn't ADD anything for it to take place in 2219 or 3019. It would be a twist that made the audience go "Oh...OK."

See....that's not how I pictured that information coming across...if that WAS the twist that's in the movie, which I should make clear that I have no idea about that and haven't read anything to support it. It's just a notion that kinda feels right. But anyways...the significance to the plot that that twist would have...as far as I've thought about it that is...is that it would kind of imply that our ACTUAL 2019 did happen in this world as well. And that the 2019 that was when the first movie took place is an aberration used to conceal some truth and or calamity or what have you. So sometime after our own present something happened that set the world back so much that a new version of recordable history could be written. And I guess that in the new world, humans AND replicants are both products of the few true humans left who use a manufactured class system between the two to conceal what they're really doing....I guess.

Or I could just be a really boring dude for thinking that that'd be kind of a neat way to explain why the 2019 seen in the first movie was obviously so much more advanced than our ACTUAL 2019 will be. And it'll leave the "Deckard is a replicant" stuff with the first one intact...technically. Just one of the ones that is a "human."

That's roughly what I was thinking as well and it's not necessarily incompatible with Analog's theory.

You could even make the Atari billboards part of the joke. "The real puppet masters of the world are resurrecting ALL SORTS of old things!"

Is anything going to be credited to Johansson now? I thought he was flat out off the film?

This feels Zimmer-ish - at least it updates the 80s theme in a similar manner to Tron Legacy (which was also a remote control productions joint - and Zimmer was always rumoured to have been involved in that)
post #760 of 1173

Agreed with BaldRayo. I'd be that was Zimmer.

post #761 of 1173

I wasn't too impressed with the - one suspects corporate mandated - way Johannsson was shuffled off the project. But I have to admit that sounds pretty cool. Lots of sub bass BRRRRRMMMs in there so there's little doubt it's Zim.

post #762 of 1173
I like the updated theme, but it did start off sounding like Stranger Things.
post #763 of 1173

Just got my updated copy of Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner.

 

Found out something about BR2 that surprised me.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Sean Young will be reprising her role as Racheal in BR2. 
 
She spent 3 days shooting on set. So its probably just a cameo.

It screened last Friday for LA critics and embargoes are being held tight. Don't believe they're lifted 'till next Tuesday?

 

Heard... three of those reactions (and Gosling is apparently pretty good!)

post #765 of 1173

Social media reactions are hitting. Thus far, looking very positive.

post #766 of 1173
post #767 of 1173

I'm not really a fan of Blade Runner beyond its aesthetics, but I'm glad to hear someone say that the sequel is NOT the blockbuster that it's being marketed as.

post #768 of 1173

I'm seeing pretty much blanket raves. Like, Fury Road style raves. Dare I dream?

post #769 of 1173
Dream a little dream, Paul.

Can't wait!!

Pleasepleasepleaseplease oh please. I can't even imagine what it'd be like for this to be amazing.
post #771 of 1173
Ok, I've now reached unprecedented levels of excitement. Not sure that I've ever wanted a film to be great this desperately.
post #772 of 1173

everybody be quiet until the movie comes out!

 

DON'T JINX IT!!!

post #773 of 1173

Geek sites praising a geek movie on Social Media. 100% expected. Hoping for the best (especially with that team behind it) but not taking those reactions to heart.

The original was sold as an action movie, which obviously it wasn't. The people behind 2049 are, to their credit, not doing that here.

post #774 of 1173

"Masterpiece" is a word being liberally thrown around in these early reactions.  I have to believe that's just the byproduct of an "I saw the movie early!" high... right?

 

The universal praise for Roger Deakins is absolutely believable, though.

I think that this was a smart move as well.  Speaking for my wife, she's wanting to see this because it looks like it's NOT an action movie.  It's not that she dislikes action movies (she likes them if they're GOOD, like JOHN WICK), but she doesn't seek them out.

post #776 of 1173

It sounds like the reactions are dancing around some huge spoilers/reveals.  As such, I'm officially checking out until I see the film.  I'm glad to hear that it's good, but I was going to see it anyways.

Nobody ever knows a masterpiece until they see one for themselves. That said, do people liberally throw that around? If so, I've never seen it designated so casually before.

It's coming from the same geek bloggers who call every new Marvel film the best one yet. 

post #779 of 1173

It's true that early reactions skew positive, but I wouldn't say geek movies get lathered with the 'm' word by default and the kind of specific things being praised make me think it must be at the very least good, which wasn't a sure thing by any means.

I think this guy dictated his review to Google Translate in ancient Sanskrit:

@jasonosia
BLADE RUNNER 2049: The thrill of mood and extensional joys of self-reflection. Villeneuve’s slow-burn obsessions have never felt more SEEN.

Almost sounds like a haiku.

Saying something is "the best one yet" does not equate to "masterpiece". Find me an example, if you can. 

post #783 of 1173
Pacific Rim review:

@kylereesechud

Hunnam's the robot
jockey of my dreams. It's a
masterpiece. Uh-huh.

It does when you consider their refusal to even acknowledge an MCU film that is bad (Thor: The Dark World), let alone just OK (Dr. Strange). Both praised hardcore by these bloggers.

 

But the last case of the M word being dropped by these guys? Well.. we just saw it with Dunkirk this past summer. And damn near everything del Toro has ever directed. Pacific Rim got praised. The truth is... most of these people already had their reviews written up before ever seeing it.

I stand by my assertion that DUNKIRK is a masterpiece, and I think that time will prove me right on that one.

post #786 of 1173
Yeah, nerd film bloggers will absolutely shit themselves in praise of just about anything if it tickles the right receptors in their brain, especially in the lead-up to and first week of release, so I remain skeptical. But who knows?

Oh sure, I get that, and for me, Inception is his masterpiece. 

 

I even admitted I needed to see Dunkirk a second time and that would be probably improve on my first "EHHHH?!" reaction. And that was exactly the case.

Most Nolan films are growers for me.  DUNKIRK is the first one to absolutely blow me away on the first go.  MEMENTO and INCEPTION were good first impressions as well, but not at the same level as DUNKIRK.

post #789 of 1173

Best reaction says that this makes the new Star Wars movies "look like live-action Lego movies."

 

Next Thursday needs to be this one.

post #790 of 1173

That's what they said in 1982 as well.

post #791 of 1173

time truly is a flat circle!

post #792 of 1173
Oh, dear. I now have what the kids these days call hype.
post #793 of 1173
I probably bought my ticket already.
post #794 of 1173

I've got my tickets ...to a showing of the original (Final Cut) on Friday.

Third Short.

Almost every early screening for a geek property gets ejaculated on, no matter the quality.  I'm surprised people even pay attention to early reviews for these kinds of things.

It's Denis Villeneuve though... so, yeah it's probably good.

The fact they still do speaks volumes. That nobody ever learns from the past.
