How has this movie not even made $90 million yet? Is it the length? I am so happy I didn't miss the chance to see this in theatres.
I think my biggest takeaway is how surprisingly affecting it was. I couldn't get enough of the scenes between K (Gosling) and Joi (great supporting performance by Ana de Armas). The 2nd scene in the movie felt like almost 20 minutes of just setting this up, and at the time i found it surprising to spend this much screentime on developing this sub-plot, but it sure paid dividends. It all sets up a highly impactful dramatic scene down the road that was worth the price of admission for me alone.
I loved so many levels of this movie, it was a joy to watch and to listen to. Villeneuve sure has fun using sound in his sci-fi films, and I find myself really looking forward to Dune. Also, easily the best use of CGI I have ever seen in a movie. It puts Rogue One to shame.
I much preferred this sequel to the original. There's a lot of sci-fi meat here for fans to chew through.
This had better get a cinematography nomination at the very least. i would love to see it win for that.
It certainly exceeded my expectations. Really happy I got to see it. Very powerful.
