Saw BR today. Totally worth it. Went to see it in IMAX. Also totally worth it. The sound was amazing. I won’t spoil it. All I’ll say–the solar fields of Los Angeles are sad and breathtaking all at the same time. Well done. It might surpass the original in cinematography alone.
So good! If you appreciate science fiction and detective novels, go see it.
One more thing, all the actors are superb IMO.
Ok, last thing, the script is masterful.
I cannot wait for Blade Runner 2049. I’ve seen the two mini movies (<– that’s the first one, here’s the second with Bautista, who is great!) they released and I’m stoked. I really hope it lives up to the hype.
I have watched the first BR over and over. I tried to read the book, but it was challenging and different and had to be back to the library before I could finish. Embarrassed to say that, but it’s true. The movie seems to be entirely different. Based on, right??
The ending scene in the director’s cut of BR is perfect. “…tears in rain.”
So much Christian/Jesus influence with the dove, and the nail, and sacrifice/salvation. Love it.
When I was a kid, I didn’t understand and was completely bored by this movie. There are many quiet moments that would be lost on a child. In 1982, I was 9. I probably didn’t attempt to watch it until it was released on video. So maybe 12 or so. It was boring though.
“When’s Hans Solo going to do something??”
My daughter has even seen the movie several times and is excited for BR 2049. That’s. Cool! We are definitely going to the movie theater to see this one.
Lilli and I joke, when Pris puts on her black mask of spray paint–
“Trying to even out your eyeliner!”
I would wear this look. 🙂 Would it be weird to dress up for the show? LOL I’m sure people are somewhere!
