meh, if you remember the overall plot, then no. I wanted to do this, but didn't have time and felt fine. Plus, I watched interviews after seeing it and the director said they made the movie to stand on its own OR be linked back to the original.

I've got to say that I'm surprised by how badly Blade Runner underperformed this weekend. It never made a lot of sense to me that they chose this particular moment to make a sequel, but I figured it would do better than it did.

This is a great trailer. Doesn't give too much away, shows a bunch of the action, great song choice... I want this movie to work so badly.

It'll depend how much Snyder stink they got off of it.

Blade Runner 2049 might be the most beautifully shot film I've ever seen. It's right up there with The Tree of Life in my mind. It also might have the best production design ever. If Deakins and Gassner don't win Oscars this year, I will give up on the Academy Awards. As for the film as a whole, I really liked it, but I'm not sure I loved it. It was a cold experience. I need to see it again this coming weekend before I can really evaluate the film.

I also saw Stronger and Chasing Coral recently. Gyllenhaal was absolutely superb in Stronger, and Tatiana Maslany and Miranda Richardson were equally great in their supporting roles. And Chasing Coral was an eye-opening, scary, and beautiful film all wrapped into one. Check it out on Netflix.

I want/need to see it again as well. The way they blended the technology they used for Ryan's love interest blew my mind and I love how they kept you on your toes by throwing odd situations into the scenes.

I saw The Florida Project last night. Really a special film that shines a light on a slice of Florida residents that I certainly was not very familiar with. The kids are exceptional, especially the main little girl.

The mom is played by a woman the director just found on instagram and she knocks it out of the park.

Willem Dafoe is perfect. Check it out if you get the chance.

So my mom wanted to see "The Mountain Between Us" this past Monday, so I took her. The movie was decent. I'm a big fan of Idris.

Yea, it's kind of your standard "survival movie with romance", but I agree that I like the cast.

which version did you watch? The directors cut or the one that sounds like Harrison Ford did a voice over with a gun to his head?

The version that Comcast offers on their OnDemand service. I'm assuming that is the original version?

You have to remember that this was made in the 80's, but it was hailed as a director masterpiece - doing things that had never done before.

Plus, it really was ahead of it's time....We have evidence that we are on our way to Superintelligent AI now that we have faster computing. The latest movie explores where the lines are blurred in what is considered to be human after this time of Superintelligent AI has become the norm.

Some generation will have to deal with this topic, but those of us in our 30s might get to witness the beginning of it when we are in our 60s/70s/or 80s.
