Okay... Everyone... Calm down.
It's very good.
It's not groundbreaking.
It's not masterful.
It's very good.
Look, I'm glad you liked the movie that much. Good for you, mate, really. But you need to admit something. You need to admit that this movie whose cock you're sucking to death has flaws. This movie whose trailers you've been ejaculating to has flaws. I'm not saying I don't respect your opinion. As I just said, it's a really well-executed film. But you may be taking the hype a bit far, and you may be delusional to the fact that Blade Runner 2049 is imperfect. So let me just get my issues out of the way first... One: Gosling's character is kind of dull. Part of it is the character, part of it is the performance. We follow this guy along through the entire movie, and yet we seem so distant from him, we never get the sense that we should care about his mission. The sympathetic side to his character was fairly well-handled but the emotional impact doesn't truly drive home. Additionally, Gosling just felt replaceable. I don't really think any actor could have made this role something unique or amazing, but it's an issue nonetheless. In general, I think he just could have been written more interestingly.
Two: The script is very mediocre. Compared to the original film, 2049 lacks the same deft philosophy and complex ideas. It's present, and sometimes it's interesting, but often times the movie simply comes off as assuming it's more intelligent than it really is. In fact, the best scenes of the film are those which are silent, and utilize remarkable visuals and deep imagery as opposed to bland, uninspired writing.
Three: Stop putting Jared Leto in movies. Jared Leto can not act.
So yeah, those are most of my big issues. The purpose of discussing these first was merely to point out that Blade Runner 2049 is flawed... CONTINUED IN COMMENTS⬇
@crystaltennilleirby & @aabhau are directing a poignant & amazing piece of work this weekend in collaboration with courageous community artists! Come out for transformative art!The Untitled Reconstruction Project is a performance based on the 1871 testimony of Spartanburg County residents who were terrorized by the Ku Klux Klan. The show combines historical text, original writing by the cast, and discussion facilitated by Speaking Down Barriers. Our ensemble is made up of actors, writers, poets, lawyers, and historians. "Untitled Reconstruction Project" asks, how can we trace the journey from 1871 to 2017? What is different, and what has stayed the same?
Join us in October at the Library Headquarters for the performance, and also to see the exhibit curated by the Library's Kennedy Room staff. This exhibit will explore the Era of Reconstruction in Spartanburg, as well as genealogical information about the historical figures in the play. Performances run approximately 2 hours including a 5-minute pause. —
