I don't care how much of a "cult classic" this is to some. I recently watched it for the first time. Maybe that's why there's no nostalgia aspect. What a garbage movie. I can't think of a recent film that has annoyed me so much from the characters absolutely stupid and pointless decisions, to fairly large plot holes, to the horrible acting. I could go on and on. This doesn't even fit into the so bad it's good category. It's just bad.
Blade Runner 2049 is a fantastic film in its' own right, creates an incredible world and is a great addition to the Blade Runner universe. With that said, however, I think a lot of things could have been improved. In my opinion, while great, 2049 doesn't hold a candle to the original who nails the noir feel while still keeping the pacing in great shape. 2049 just felt really slow moving. Too slow. And while it felt very faithful to the original, something just felt off. Here's to hoping the apparent next one takes it to an even farther level!
