As a massive fan of the original Director's Cut version: Almost walked out. Yes, that bad. I'm just going to forget this piece of dung was made.

And this is being hailed as the best movie of 2017?!? Hollyweird is circling the drain. I will gladly jiggle the handle to ease the way to the bottom of the shitswamp.

I really liked it. But what I liked about it the most might have been the intense anxiety in the movie theater as all the middle aged Blade Runner fans were wondering when the hell Ford was going to show up. "I know he's in it! I've seen the trailers!". I could literally see people grimacing and fingers tightening on the armrests.

It's like making a Batman movie and having Batman not show up until an hour in. There would be riots.

Really telling that the movie got worse after Ford/Deckard arrived on the screen. In my humble opinion, of course. YMMV.

I HATED it!

... and then one night it was on HBO and I started watching it again. And it was pretty good. I guess i'd already shaken the connections to the original and was able to digest it as a standalone film and there was a lot there to appreciate. My only grievance is Jared leto's performance which I thought was lazy and dim.

Couldn't you just have said "My only grievance is Jared leto's performance"? The rest is understood.

Anyway, about half an hour too long but still good. One of those movies I'll want to see again but never will because I can't invest that much time in one sitting without moving heaven and earth.
