I found the entire child labor camp unnecessarily long tbh.
It is known.
I know it's supposed to be a blockbuster movie in terms of box office returns, but when viewing it from a non-business perspective...
It'a too bad Ridley Scott feels it's too long. But let's not forget that he was heavily involved in Prometheus which was riddled with issues; pacing being one of them.
I still feel that the pace and runtime in Blade Runner 2049 are perfect. I'm glad he only consulted on the story.
Runtime ddnt bother me in cinema. I liked this film. But had issues with storyline and script. Might have had something more daring if riddles stayed away all together
The film was unnecessarily long for me, it didn't help that dave battista's you've never seen a miracle line was repeated 16,000 times for the dumb dumb's in the audience, then there was the grating dialogue, one of my favourite lines being "i've never seen a tree before", "it's dead", very deep i must say. The sex scene contributed nothing to the story and only seemed to slow things down but i guess it added a non important plot element, if it had lead to K finding deckards daughter it would have been understandable but the fact is the whole thing was telegraphed when seline said "i put my own memories into the memories i create" or something along those lines before breaking down for about half an hour and crying uncontrollably, i almost expected rick moranis to show up and say
The fact K didn't get this earlier i find nonsensical and the fact the penny only drops after he's taken by the resistance i found immensely stupid, at least i felt that way about the character. By getting rid of the resistance part of the story you wouldn't have needed the prostitute market scene either, plus the resistance basically want the same thing jared leto wants anyway which ultimately leads nowhere, then again what was the point of jared leto's character? He wanted deckard but then decides to send him off world after capturing him whilst risking K coming after him, why would K do this? because he's been looking for the kid himself the whole movie and for some reason Luv kept leaving him alive while laying waste to everybody else. The whole thing was a mess the more i think about it. Also what the hell was the scene with the bee's about and what was it for? i'm pretty sure bee's need plant life in order to keep doing what bee's do but yet they seem to be thriving in a radiation filled wasteland. It was more then likely a scene added by villeneueve to be arty. The more i think about it the more it reminds me of prometheus.
after how many of them in 75 pages?
The next one will be 90 minutes long.
...an actioner by Zack Snyder.
Finally saw this! This FELT like it was in the Bladerunner universe unlike Prometheus and Alien: Covenant. Which makes me wonder if some other really visual film maker with respect for what makes a really good Alien film should take those reigns.
I really enjoyed this movie. Yeah, it was unusually paced for a modern film but I'm glad they took their time and let things stew and boil around a bit. There were a few things that didn't seem to lead to anything of consequence story wise but I chalked it up to artistic world building and metaphorical red herrings.
I'd don't really see where they could go with the story without it departing from the investigatory Bladerunner formula and descending into full blown political/uprising film.
And if JOI isn't an actual thing in 10 or 15 years I'd be surprised and a bit disappointed.
Found both issues of Marvel's adaptation of the original movie at a local shop.
You mean this?
agree storyline and script the weakest aspects of this film, keeping it from being truly amaze everything else was done well
Ash Thorp + Maciej Kuciara
Why aren't those Blu-ray covers?
Just came back from Target. Picked it up. This one alluded me in the theater, so I am chomping at the bit to watch it. I may wait until this weekend and do a double feature with Alien Covenant, which I've yet to re-watch since picking it up.
