I agree normally, but that's why I think the term is appropriate here.

I loved this, but it's weird that the one shot that sticks with me more than anything else is Robin Wright's head bouncing off the desk.

I'm reading Future Noir right now, and I'm kind of amazed how much I didn't know about the early stages of optioning Blade Runner.

Like, the dad from Flipper was one of the executive producers?

Great movie that was fighting to carry the weight of the original. I liked Joi and gosling was fine. I loved the holographic Elvis shootout. But I would have been happier just cruising around in the spinner over the landscape, checking out San Diego, the tide wall, the solar arrays etc. and getting a better sense of the structure of society and the geography with no dialogue or plot, chilling with Zimmer.

I want to see thousands of miles of solar arrays over the deserted flatland of middle America. I want to see the supply chain for the grubs at the protein farm and how they are produced, processed, distributed and consumed. I want to know what the daily life of LA inhabitants who aren’t police officers looks like. We got a few well-designed images but no sense of the social structure writ large.

There was more world building in the two 1 minute scenes in T1– robot tank crushing skulls and dogs barking at terminator disguised in tattered clothes infiltrating the underground bunker— than in this entire movie.

Every day I like this movie less and less.

Not a good film. Unimportant and unnecessary.

such a dumb scene on so many levels. Air to ground missiles are completely out of whack with this and the original movie, it gave away that Gosling was being followed which he paid zero attention to, no mention is giving to the dead scavengers when he enters the orphanage, no mention is given to his ruined vehicle and how he gets out of thereToggle Spoiler


this made perfect sense to me. my assumption was that some sort of tactical drone defense net is ubiquitous, particularly in the incivilized wastelands. these dudes were just hanging out with a grappling hook waiting for an aircraft to shoot down, I don’t think a missile barrage is a real out-of-the-ordinary event for them. seems like an appropriate update on the sort of ubiquitous, incontestable state control you see in the original, which looked like flying cars, searchlights and massive machinery roaming the streets in the language of its time; now it’s fleshed out with bunkerbusters and k’s hovering watchdogToggle Spoiler

forgetting all Seamus' complaints, which being an apologist for this film I'm apt to do, without looking at it too closely I mentioned earlier in the thread I really dug that scene, because it was so brutal and butchery and a technicolor presentation of what is happening daily(?) in warzones with drones etc. but we're only used to seeing it through black and white IR cam

I dunno it struck me, the cold brutality of it, anyway

but yes I did wonder how he got home

on cars,I think I felt more of a gutpunch when Deckard's spinner was exploded than when Joi got crunched

maybe because the Joi getting crunched thing had been telegraphed way early when he loaded her onto his USB stick

I find it odd that people feel like the sex scene was worth mentioning when it was the sex scene from Her, like, verbatim.

I guess it seems "cooler" in a violent drama than it does in a depressing rom-com?

i maintain that the best part of this was when the water came out of the damn

or maybe when that car flew past a monolithic cement pyramid while the soundtrack went "WRRRNNNNGGGGHHHHHNNNNGGGGGGGNNNNNNN"

I think it's more interesting because K is a replicant and the scene places a much greater emphasis on the visual overlay. Also don't think there is anything odd about valuing execution over originality sometimes.

I don't remember any visually arresting sex scene which was a landmark argument for the artistic credentials of CGI in 'her'

I didnt but it's just weird to call it "the sex scene". How about "the suggestive of sex scene" or "the foreplay scene" or "app and replicant makeout scene"

saw this last night on a big beautiful screen

i thought it was a pretty dang good sci-fi movie if not considered the sequel to blade runner, which it was never going to approach. take out most of the third act, omit entirely the war between replicants and humans, take out harrison ford (who has, now, imo, tarnished all three of the roles that made him famous), get rid of that awful fucking zimmer score, and ya got a great-ish flick. it was definitely a much better than average popcorn movie that bungles the profundity of the original films themes and villaneuve is never going to do anything better than "leaner" /bro intellectual nolan fare now that he's shown he can be trusted with a budget. loved seeing snow in los angeles/climate disaster. loved seeing the wacky technology. loved gosling's baseline tests. this is definitely worth your twelve bucks if you like to see futuristic shit on a big screen and not be pandered to too much.

did anyone else think the set design was really good until ~las vegas, and then the lazy washes seemed like shitty takes on millenial pink. like i was watching hotline bling
