For Denis Villeneuve, there are two versions of the original Blade Runner (1982) movie despite the seven alternative cuts: The original cut is the story of a human being that is falling in love with a replicant and the final cut is a story of a replicant that discovers its true identity. As for Blade Runner 2049, with Villeneuve's own words, it is made from the tension between those two versions. See more »
When Sapper Morton is in the pool checking on his grubs, it doesn't look like they could swim, so they'd all be on the bottom of the pool and he would be crushing them under his boots as he walked. It would be easy enough for the pool to have a metal grid, supported a few inches off the bottom ; on which he could walk., but reach through for the grubs. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

Plenty of raving reviews, but I do not agree with the masterpiece verdict by many reviewers. The original was complex, but yet simple to understand, and as the plot unfolds, the story engages you through the film. This sequel looks fantastic , and the performances are great, yet something is missing. A straight forward plot, with a flowing script would have a made a huge difference. Sitting through 150 minutes of drama, yet struggling to make sense of it, seems to me that the maker failed in the business of screen story telling. I was disappointed and found the first film so much better than this big budget fare. Dalton trumbo please help us as today's science fiction big budget films are in the main failing to be anything like as entertaining as they should be. Better script writers & screen story tellers are so important,yet it seems that simplicity is being substituted by muddled messy big budget effects, all for the sake of being so much cleverer than the dumb audience. Alfred Hitchcock knew how to make a film, a pity a few of these over hyped directors, don't have a rethink on what it takes to entertain an audience . I am more than ever mistrusting so called master reviewers !!!!
