Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

I really liked it. Visually and sonically stunning and lots of stuff to take in, enjoy and then unpack later on. 24 hours later and i am still asking myself a whole bunch of questions about elements of the film. I will definitely have to see it again on the big screen.

I did a solo Saturday morning session at the local multiplex in VMax (biggest screen and sound in town) and was surprised there were only about 5 other people in the 200+ seat cinema.

Surely Roger Deakins for the win (finally) - oscar for cinematography :notworthy: . No other film will come close to looking as beautiful as BR2049 this year.

With respect to other films in Denis Villeneuve's back catalog i think Incendies is a must see and will stick with you a long time after the film has finished

So pretty disappointed with the 3D showing. Was an XD theater.

Post converting is fine, but this can't hold up to The Martian or Prometheus. There's such a flat feeling to any background lighting that isn't there in those 2 films.

Just happened to see this article just before I read your post:
http://www.indiewire.com/2017/10/roger-deakins-blade-runner-2049-dont-watch-3d-1201886963/
Will probably go see it again in IMAX or XD next weekend, but no 3D.

Villeneuve directed Peta on the soundstage alongside Ford. "But then he got to direct it again when we did all the CG work," says Nelson. "All of those little moments of the mannerisms that we drilled into from the original movie, we incorporated those into the performance digitally." One thing Nelson particularly is happy with? "I'm really proud of those flyaway hairs," he says. "Digital hair is really beautiful but sometimes it can be too perfect. So we made flyaway hair the way it would in real life." One particular "super secret" Saturday in Budapest, both Sean Young and Loren Peta were put in a facial motion-capture rig and filmed, with both women saying Rachael's dialogue from the film. It greatly helped the animators later on in the complicated human-building process. "Only a couple of places could do it," says Nelson of the visual effects company MPC that worked on building Rachael's face from model to skeleton to human.

Finally saw it.

An absolute masterpiece of a movie from beginning to end. Every second of the running time is masterfully crafted. It would take a lot for me to say that this is better than the original but having walked out of it an hour ago, I say it with confidence. Time will only tell if that feeling sticks.

Words can't even do it justice.

Cinematography and Music deserve the praise it is getting, as all expected, but that's just the beginning with this film. The writing and performances here are among the best cinema has to offer. Just incredible.

The details, Joi's character, the crash landing in the junk yard place, the beehive area, the fight taking place in the crashing waves at the end. GOD, ugh. Jesus. Just everything, there is too much to list. It all just works, each little detail individually and the entire thing working as a whole.

and Ana de Armas might be the most beautiful woman on the planet

^Well said!
An extraordinary follow-up to one of the 20th century's most important films. But to your one preference, I'm more partial to Carla Juri's Luv. :wink:

Prisoners rules but Enemy is the tits.

Agreed.

wanted to see it again in IMAX but already ousted by Geostorm. Has anyone seen it in 3D? I generally am not a 3D fan, but wondering if it's worth it to try to see it again that way, or just on the next biggest screen I can find since IMAX is no longer an option.
