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

I think Harrison gets a bad rap. He’s one of my boy heroes but he’s never been a great actor, he sorta works within his repertoire of expressions. Only nowadays he’s got to play old world weary dudes and that comes off as phoned in. Or maybe he’d just rather be flying planes. Either way I thought he was a lot better in BR than TFA, and did a decent job of expressing pain over Rachel’s loss.

This is a good summation except I think you're kinda apologizing for a lot. I wish there was more weird shit like the baseline test, which was legitimately disorienting and cool and less of the pandering Ford shit with Rachel clone, Leto's dumb dialogue, etc.

i hear ya antoine but i guess i feel like this was a good movie that needed stuff taken out rather than a bad movie that need stuff added in. like, one scene of leto would have been fine or even good. take out cgi rachel. etc.

The baseline was cool, if I was in a industrial band I’d sample it

I thought this was "not bad" but far too long and stylistically frustrating in the way chairkicker described. This is a problem I have with the vast majority of films but there was not nearly screen time enough time without music. The music is great but it comes relentlessly and I was tired of it by the end.
Also, I watched it here which was cool

pale fire is one of my favorite books and both whatever issues the film and that medium piece are trying to raise in it are dreadfully beside the point because pale fire is 1) a satire of criticism and 2) a solvable puzzle and an aesthetic achievement that goes completely against the spirit of the original blade runner imo

upon an IMAX rewatch, I thought this was by far the best of the 3 Ford performances of late. the soundtrack did less for me than before, Joi was more compelling, and the visuals were a real treat to experience

the las vegas set design was pretty cheap but i assumed that was the point. still they missed a chance to dazzle, i guess.

the baseline tests are actually the thing my mind keeps coming back to the most. the one at the very beginning, coming at the heels of flying over the concrete hellscape, gave me a real feeling of euphoria

You should watch the original but if you know the general premise and see 2049 you might actually enjoy it more; my main gripe with it was it didnt feel like a spiritual sequel in anything else but general narrative.

Liked to quite liked but didn't love this. Jared Leto, as much as I hate to admit it, was wildly miscast. Christian Bale should've played that role. In seeking grandeur lacks the intimacy of the original. Also not good enough to justify its own existence. Still some spine-tingling astonishing moments in the film, but that's to be expected with Deakins.

Villeneuve is like Nolan but not shitty.

Tyrell was cool caus he's just a normal reasonably likable mega rich dude. His immorality wasn't reducible to him just being a nutter. Leto's character was (like) a batman villain.
