Ambiguity is Ridley Scott's paintbrush. He's savvy enough to know that a little controversy helps sell the film.

But I still think there's an argument to be made either way.

Yes, one may take either side of the argument. After all, it's about ambiguous points in a fictional movie about make-believe entities.

I think Ridley Scott is a great director (my favorite British director). Who else could have given us Aliens, Blade Runner, and the Macintosh commercial?

Somebody said, “Blade Runner 2049 is what America will look like after three more years of Trump.”

Oh wait. That was me.

Except the special effects will suck.

No, Deckard couldn't have been a Nexus-7.  He had already had a stellar career in the LAPD, and his retirement from blade running actually pre-dates the introduction of the Nexus-6 model.  That's made clear in the movie, because Bryant has to brief Deckard on what a Nexus-6 is, and why this model is so much more dangerous than anything either of them had dealt with before.  So if Deckard pre-dates the Nexus-6 (and it is indisputable that he does) then he can't himself be a Nexus-7 replicant.
Some people just can’t deal with the idea of implanted memories.

At least 122 anyway.

I did not realize, until I read it in Christopher Milne's book today, that a British soldier tasked with engineering tasks -- building or blowing up bridges, laying roads, airfield repair, etc. -- is called a sapper.

That's where the name Sapper Morton came from.

It had a somewhat different meaning in my day. Or should I say, in my war.

BR2049 comes out on Blu-ray January 19.

I have already pre-ordered.

That's it, actors are officially an extinct species.

Received the BRD of BR2049 in today’s mail, watching the various extras on the disc now. I think I may have an orgasm.

The sound design (on headphones) is just as layered and rich as the visual design.

On a disc you can stop and read all the signage, examine pens on the desk, stop street scenes and examine the backgrounds.

I finally watched the movie last night.

First thing is that I agree with Ridley Scott: “It was fucking way too long." They could have removed an hour of the flick and it would have been better. Actually, they could have removed two hours and forty-four minutes and it would have been much better.

As with all sequels, I expected to be disappointed, but I didn't expect anything this awful. I found nothing at all praiseworthy in the movie. It was slow and boring. It lacked an interesting story. Just a pitiful excuse for a movie.

It’s a given in this movie that Deckard is a replicant.
I disagree. I saw nothing in the movie to indicate that.

Of course they were hunting them. Rachael was a replicant and Deckard was supposed to destroy her. I don't believe it is mentioned in the first movie, but in the book there are laws against humans and replicants having sexual relations. although the enforcement is lax on the outer planets.

All in all, it was a major disappointment.

I will continue to read the book from time to time, and watch the original movie on occasion, but this will be my only viewing of 2049.

Too bad.

It takes a couple few viewings to tease out all the depth and subtle meanings. Oh well, pearls before swine.

I don't know that there is any depth or any subtle meanings in this flick. But I know what you mean about multiple viewings of movies. It's my opinion that you notice a lot more small things in movies when you are not running the "what's going to happen?" routine in your brain. And that what were previously just small items take on more meaning when you know how they tie in with the plot's resolution.

As for the pearls and pigs remark, I will consider it as something other than one of your typical snarky remarks   when you post a picture of your validated "Universal Arbiter of Taste" document.

Looks a lot like my aunt - or uncle: we were never really sure.

Closest I could find.
