163 minutes is a long time to sit through a movie. Especially a movie like Blade Runner. If you watch some of the trailers you can see scenes with Sapper Morton (the first replicant K meets) that weren’t in the theatrical version. That doesn’t surprise me though. I’ve read the first Blade Runner was over four hours long.
Movies like these should really just be made into two separate parts. It’d flesh the story and characters out more while also giving me a chance to pee.
I thought I wrote this to everyone. Apparently not. The first thing I said is that it reminded me of “The Dark Knight”.
I needed a new paragraph because I saw Dark Knight 3 or 4 days after the Colorado shootings. When the movie starts up, there’s a shoot-out (my memory, not always the most reliable) and it is rock concert loud. Then the movie blew me away.
Back to Blade Runner 2049. I wrote that it was like Dark Knight with the soundtrack and the cinematography. Sometimes with these movies it bugs me that they’re so darkly lit. The measure of light needs to include some light to measure.
I loved Blade Runner 2049 for the first 2 hours. I could’ve done without the last 30 mins or so. I hear that it’s an American thing but rarely does a movie need to last more than 2 hours, especially a thriller/adventure/sci-fi thing. I loved how it was part of the original story.
(Briefly) I LOVED the GIRLS! It was part of the original movie and these girls worked this time too.
