2001 is probably the only movie that places the audience in space. I mean realistic space.And that has been unsurpassed. Space is huge and things don’t go fast.No Director has learned that lesson yet. Amazing!
Interesting! I have a question, I’m astrophotographer and when I see trough a telescope eyepiece into dark sky, I think I see “grain”. Besides, your eyes change a lot in the night after half hour with no white light. You see the structure of the Milky Way in the sky. And after a while, some nebulae trough telescope.
Easy; a Producer with Scissors! Too many scenes in the first hour that add nothing to the story. And they feel disconnected. Big mistake because it took my interest away. Perhaps later is better¿? Besides, the original is too good so you soon feel is not up to that. The original has a live swirling futuristic amazing world full of people with lights moving all the time, atmosphere, smoke, vehicles, costumes, biciles, music, sound, etc. You can’t take your eyes a second out of the screen. Even apparently unimportant scenes are awesome! I recall the scene Deckard picks up a serpent scale from a bathtub.The lighthing is fuking amazing!! The elevator of Deckard apartment, the door, his kitchen, etc, etc. Such a huge level of detail! This one I would say is empty. And I’m sorry about it.
I’ll give a critical view: Blade Runner original is an amazing visual experience with an espectacular fictional world construction unique in film history. Lighting probably the best in filmmaking. However, the story is poor and dialogues very dumb. But the film places you in a futuristic world like no one before, but 2001. The new Blade Runner 2049; I walked out the teather after 50 minutes of boredom.Great deception.Frankly, I expected something better.
