This is one of those movies that DEMANDS the cinema experience, no matter how good your home theatre is. I haven’t used my Theatre room this year at all, until after I saw this. It brought the enjoyment and fun back.

good to hear, but we feel are doing better than gold class here :) and  enjoyed more movies have seen at home than say at crowns setup.

 

but yeah we do still get out and about to the movies but more as asocial experience, night out and such :)

Saw it yesterday. One of the better sequels of the last 20 years. It's a classic in its own right. 

Definitely worth seeing at the big screen.

Saw it a couple of days ago, one of the best movies Ive seen. Quite long but it went so fast, I would have been happy for it to be longer a fantastic cinimatic experience.

Long but very good sci fi.

I never expected to be cheering for Replicants against humans.

Extreme session at Chady has to be the loudest ever setup, it was ear splitting.

Are you able to elaborate on why you feel this way about the film, without spoilers? :)

Thanks guys . Going this Wednesday. After the news it flopped on release it is great to hear almost unanimous praise here. I am really excited now.

When I first saw the original film I fell in love with the soundtrack as I guess a lot of people did. I have watched it probably a dozen times in a variety of "cuts". I introduced it to my son, who is full on into Star wars, LOTR, etc, to it last year (he is 21) and wasn't sure if it would take given its age and relative lack of action. He loved it for basically the same reasons I do. There is something about the whole mood that possibly makes the film better than it might otherwise be. Even played the PC game which was a dud but had a great part where you could stand out in Deckards apartment balcony and listen to the music and just look at the scenery.  :huh:

I went with my 18 year old on Saturday and we were both blown away.

 

Seriously considering going again

Nothing worthwhile is added to the original ideas. The plot is close to non existent. 

The atmosphere / feel of the original is gone .   

There is little subtlety just an attempt to give you more of everything. 

There seems to be 30 minutes of content dragged out into over  2 hours .

Overall it was just boring . I would estimate 25 % of the audience left before the end. I barely made it through the last 30 mins without screaming out loud in frustration. 

 

The only interest I could find would be spotting the references to the original and other films but this isnt why I go to the movies.

Cheers Mike

Were you in the right cinema? I'm struggling to believe you are saying that about the movie I saw. Without wanting to spoil it for others, the plot direction taken was jaw dropping moment for me and a pretty big NEW idea! So glad no trailers or early reviews gave it away.

I think so . I understand that I will have a minority opinion and I wish it was different. I was looking forward to watching this many times over  like the original but this wont be happening.

I agree there was one new idea . It and its obvious ramifications provided the 45 mins  content I mentioned. For me the other nearly 2 hours was pretty much just  filler .

Cheers Mike

 I too struggle to believe we saw the same movie. Did you not wonder at the end of the original Blade Runner that Deckard could be a replicant? For the very least, this tied-up the story neatly. The new one is slow moving and nothing but beautiful, atmospheric film noir. The beautiful camera work and close-ups, took time to linger on the beautiful sets and lighting design, it was a visual feast for me. Many people thinks Ryan Gosling is wooden but I think he is perfectly cast and I love his understated performance. A lot of the scenes were the beauty in subtlety...

 

Sure if you expect it to be action packed with loads of fight scene and special effects you would be completely disappointed. Yes it’s long and slow, if you don’t have patience for this sort of movies then it is definitely not for you..

 

If there’s a recent sequel movie which is better than the original, this is the one!

 

I love it so much I am going to see it again in IMAX 3D as my friend said it offers better sound, I have also found the dialogues were difficult to follow in Vmax.

Here are reviews and ending explained if you have seen the movie and want to know more.

I watched it tonight. Funny you say that, because he was pretty wooden in this film. But then, the guy is a replicant. So maybe they are meant to be wooden like that. 

From memory off the blade runner original, I think there were difference specs of the replicants.  The one's used for 'entertainment' were more bubbly in nature.  As he's supposed to be a 'cop', there is no need for emotions.  I think he played the character well or as well as he could anyways.

All we needed was a single tear in the final scene... or is that too predictable? I hope most people recognised the music in that scene from the original.

 

I also have to say I enjoyed the fact that the central question from the original remains ambiguous in the sequel, despite my own views on the topic.

I don’t think that is answered at all, IMO you have made an understandable conclusion, but it is never definitively answered.
