    Good point on the length and pacing. This was definitely a long movie, and it definitely felt like a long movie, but it never bored me–although I did have to take a heck of a sprint to the bathroom when the credits started rolling.

    I saw Blade Runner last night and it was stunning! Brilliant! I am disappointed that the box office is not as good as hoped for as this film really deserves to be seen. The cinematography, set design, direction, sound fx, and the acting were all superb. ,

      In the coming years, it’ll probably go down as a masterpiece. It’s too bad no one is seeing it! It might be the best movie of the year!

    Great review as usual!

    thanks for this review. I can NOT WAIT to see this film.

    • Nick Kush says:

      Enjoy yourself! Just know that it’s a very long, ponderous film. When you accept that fact, you’ll probably unabashedly love it!

        My husband and I both used to work in the film industry and if the production values are high and the film ( acting, cinematography, story etc) are good then we will love the fact that it is long and ponderous!

        Then I foresee that you’ll love this film!

    I’m going to have to wait another week for this one, but I know it will be worth the wait. Really, really looking forward to this one 😀 Terrific review….and with an A+, I could not get any more excited for this than I already am 😊

  6. Great review (as always). Hoping to catch it tomorrow!

    2049 is not perfect but neither is the original (although it is my favourite movie). It is a great, adult serious sci fi film (albeit as serious as Hollywood sci fi gets). The film suffers from pacing and a generic soundtrack, but it’s still a brilliant film and deserves box office success. Maybe awards too, you never know.

    • Nick Kush says:

      I would say that the original has more of a pacing issue than 2049. As much as I want to love the original, I’ve just never been able to get into it with its unbelievably slow pace

    Ok, I was already hyperventilating about this sequel to one of my most favourite films of all time, and all you’ve done is sent me running for a brown paper bag!!
    I don’t think there is any other sequence in any other film I remember quite as vividly as that last scene with Deckard and the nexus 6: “I have seen thinks you people wouldn’t believe …”
    If this sequel is anything remotely as good as the first one I might just implode as I sit in the cinema tonight and watch BladeRunner 2049.
    I am so f*****excited!!

    • Nick Kush says:

      This review is coming from a person that isn’t even that big of a fan of the original which shows how good this one is!
