    At work last week :
  2. Blade Runner 2049

    Seen it on release day in IMAX 3D and can't stop thinking about it two weeks later. Still constantly feeling its atmosphere ( listening to both the Vangelis and Hans Zimmer scores doesn't help ). Might have to see it again this weekend. Too bad they don't show it in IMAX anymore.
  3. Blade Runner 2049

    Way to ruin your experience of one of the only movies worth paying for and supporting in the last few years...
  4. Blade Runner 2049

    This is what I don't get though. I have massive respect for the cinematography, the mood, set pieces, soundtrack and atmosphere of the original Blade Runner but I can't see what was so amazing about its plot though. I mean sure, the setting and the general intrigue was interesting but the plot itself ? There barely is an investigation in there. Some of the dialogues are kinda awkward ( the scene where Deckard pretends to be an inspector from the commitee on moral abuses with a dumb nasal voice ), the scene when Deckard is reminded what a Nexus 6 is by his former boss despite being a Blade Runner... While not amazing, I was way more captivated by the story of 2049, simply because it took the time to establish good emotional connection between the audience and K so the theme of loneliness worked rather well to explain most of the character's actions and reactions. I understand that Deckard's grumpiness and darkness was supposed to be a throwback to film noir male characters but I felt way more connected to Ryan Gosling's character. While the plot-twists ( if you can call them that ) were not amazing in 2049, they worked well enough to keep me engaged throughout my first viewing, which is way more than I can say for the original Blade Runner ( during which I was, as I said, way more impressed by the visual experience ).
  5. Blade Runner 2049

    It made 50 millions in three days and the week-end as just started. While not as amazing as they should be the numbers are not bad either. Not yet at least. Let's have some hope as most viewer reviews are pretty good, unlike Alien : Covenant for which they were mixed at best. And yes, a Villeneuve version of Dune would be amazing. Probably miles better than the masterpiece in the making that was Jodorowsky's version would have been. Fingers crossed.
  6. Blade Runner 2049

    I really like the OST. Sure there are no memorable songs like Rachel's song or Tales from the Future from the first Vangelis score but the dark ambient mood and the sound design ( loved that aggressive slider taking off sound they added ) really fits with the bleak scenery. Absolutely loved the interaction between the music and on-screen shots of K's slider flying over Los Angeles in the rain for the first time, that long slow shot when you see the streets from way above and can only make out the neons. Really builds up the anticipation and you know you are in for a visual treat.
  7. Blade Runner 2049

    That is what I thought too especially after seeing specific articles about the fact that Imax cinemas would stop showing 3D movies starting with Blade Runner 204o but Paris la Villette is showing it in 3d Imax and oh boy is it worth it.
  8. Blade Runner 2049

    I've just seen it in 3D Imax. Probably the best cinema experience I have ever had. Bleak movie but with so much beauty in its decay. Fantastic cinematography, solid script and killer music. Beats the first one in all departments ( save for the technical prowess of directing it during the 80s ). Loved it.
  9. At this point it sounds like a high school talent show
  10. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Them and the people of Seoul who are only kilometers away from the border with North Korea, well in range of conventional weapons. No need for nukes. So unless Trump has a magical idea to wipe North Korea clean within minutes, he can kiss the South Korean capital goodbye with his genius plan...
  11. You can't sound like that and not have Dj Ashba by your side, man...What a missed opportunity.
  12. The Boxing Thread

    That's important in the fight game though. There is a reason Khabib Nurmagomedov, who has a perfect MMA record barely gets enough money to pay the bills, not to mention doesn't even get a title shot : because he is boring as fuck and constantly whines outside the octagon. Superstars are byproducts of both their skillset and the way they portray themselves. I'd say the charisma part is even more important because charismatic people are remembered while uncharismatic talented people, unfortunately, aren't.
  13. Alien: Covenant

    What this franchise needs is a reboot that focuses on suspense and horror. The creature has so much potential to be more than just a space-bug...As much as I love Aliens and the Queen design, I think it did the series a disservice in the long run because it made it okay for sequels to be less scary than the original masterpiece. I don't care about bug-hunts. Please bring back egg-morphing and the androgineous / rapey creature that has no dumb origin backstory.
  14. The Boxing Thread

    Boring and rather awkward on both parts. That being said, McGregor did better than most expected. 87-84 before that tko. He was completely gassed though in the last round so maybe showing up at 170 pounds was not such a good idea after all... Ah well. He is a rich man now so props for having the balls and the mouth.
  15. The Boxing Thread

    I don't know, there were several occurences of McGregor making both him and Floyd Sr. crack a laugh and they weren't laughing at him ( when McGregor called the guy from Showtime a weasel to his face, when he stroked his bald head from behind, or when he called Sr. a fan of his ). That's a pretty good sign you like someone when that happens despite your best efforts to remain serious. I mean when you watch this, it's pretty clear that despite what they say there is no real rivalry between both camps :
