Harrison Ford has been awful for a very long time and TFA did nothing to change that opinion for me.

Maybe he'll actually not be terrible here. Or maybe his character dies soon into the movie. That would be the preferable option.

Oh cool. The trailers made it seem like more of a traditional action movie than I would've expected, but the impressions and reviews certainly quelled those fears. Excited.

Saw a critic on Twitter (Matt Singer) sum it up as: "Blade Runner is a sci-fi movie that looks like a detective story, 2049 is a detective story that looks like a sci-fi movie."

Exciting.

You have time to watch the original with her before seeing this one. Based on the trailers it seems it's heavily connected to the original movie, not like that movie really has much of a plot, it's more of an audiovisual experience (for me), but it's better to having seen it I guess.

Careful, dutiful, and beautiful, Blade Runner 2049 cannot achieve the sublime slipperiness of Scott's masterpiece. Whether it even needs to is up to you.

She hates any and all "old" movies. It's just her thing unless it's come out in the last decade or so she isn't watching it

At the helm and in complete command of his movie with dark, ambient magic, Denis Villeneuve crafts a mysterious noir thriller the pushes existential boundaries, and nails the essence of the "Blade Runner" spirit.

But, it has to be said, it never comes close to the transcendental heights of the original; atonal rather than thematic, supporting rather than elevating the material.

Now this is very cool. I always thought the detective aspect of the original is kind of whatever, so itís great to hear theyíve embraced that angle more.

Just tell her Blade Runner came out in 2007, and Harrison Ford was De-aged with CG, like Kurt Russel in Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Final Cut has a very 2007-ass color grade to it, so you might be able to get by on this.

Yeah, I'm just skimming the reviews, trying not to read too much. Here's what the Hollywood reporter says about the music.

There was controversy and displeasure in fan quarters when news leaked that the original score by Villeneuve's regular composer, the unorthodox and deeply inventive Johan Johannson, was being replaced by music from the more conventional team of Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer. In the event, the pair's work here is in a more impressionistic, experimental, wall-of-sound mode than is customary from the Zimmer factory and, in the event, is extremely effective and mood-enhancing.

Seems decent at least

... Not trying to be condescending, but how old are you two? Seems weird to be of wedlock age and only like the last decades movies. Surely she likes stuff from her childhood.
