Blade runner (final cut)

I watched this a couple of times about 15 years ago, I really did not enjoy it. I don't know which version I watched originally, probably the director's cut. It is a movie I have been meaning to re-watch for awhile now. My wife and I decided we were going to watch the new one this weekend, and she hadn't seen the original yet, so we watched it the other night.

I was only like 18 or something the last time I watched this movie, so I figured I might enjoy it more as an adult. It is, after all, widely considered one of the best sci-fi movies of all time. I went in with an open mind, really expecting to like the movie this time, but alas, no.

It is a beautifully shot movie, more than I remembered, I expect this latest version got some re-mastering. But Jesus, this movie kinda sucks. The acting is bad. The dialogue is bad. The character development is painfully bad. There's a scene when Rachel goes to Deckard's apartment. She tells Deckard she is not a replicant, he tells her she is, in fact, a replicant. She gets sad. He feels bad. BOOM, character development. Deckard is now pro-replicant for the rest of the movie and he is in love with Rachel now too. The script just kind of jumps from scene to scene. Things aren't really explained at all. I don't expect to completely have my hand held by a script, but a little bit of direction would be nice.

I know a ton of people love this movie. I don't think I've ever had such a huge disconnect from the public and critical perception of a movie. I'm watching 2049 tonight.

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont

It's not nearly as good as a movie like Ex Machina, but Ex Machina was handcuffed by being basically on one set. That's a movie that needs to be a trilogy or something, with a hero instead of a super-nerd as protagonist.

Ex Machina was perfect. The machine was the hero.

Blade runner 2049

I thought this was awesome. Much better execution of an interesting concept. Absolutely gorgeous movie. Wish I could have seen it in theatres.


Wonder

Shameless crowd pleaser, but pretty well done. Good characters and all around enjoyable, but forgettable. Was a nice change of pace after the grimness of back to back Blade Runners.

Deadpool 2

I liked the first one a lot and this is more of the same, which is a good thing in my books. entertaining all the way through, which is more than I can say for every other superhero movie I've watched in the last few years

Only the Brave

Annihilation

Solid concept, piss poor execution. They demanded increasing levels of suspension of disbelief in order to allow the characters to do things or situations to unfold they way they needed to. The climax was Signs-esque its moronic simplicity. The "twist" ending was something they ripped off from the thriller video.

I would recommend the book. Aside from the base concept, the movie isn't really very similar to it. But only the first book; the rest of the trilogy isn't as good.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

I suspected it got the I Am Legend/I Robot treatment (minus Will Smith).

It was fine. I thought it would have made a really great story arc on star wars rebels.

It wouldn't surprise me if they did a few more with that same cast, but the problem is that it's getting crushed by the media for underperformance. Hopefully, Disney is willing to risk it, because I would love for it to connect (or at least get closer) with A New Hope in a similar fashion as Rogue One (which I loved).

Unpopular opinion: Rogue One is probably my favourite Star Wars movie.

I loved Rogue One. I like it more than anything not in the original 3, and maybe more than ROTJ

I recently told someone that I view it on-par with the original trilogy. I'm glad I'm not alone.
