About this deal

In actuality, after sitting through the credits I walked out of the theater speechless, in a stupor. Whether it’s the pores on K’s face, the fur collar of his leather jacket, the tiny details in the floors and walls of the furnace room where K has his apocryphal toy horse memory, or the vast piles of junk around the orphanage, this is 4K heaven all the way. While the quality is genuinely very good and provides an interesting look at the making of the film, you just know that there is more content out there somewhere that didn't make the cut for this outing. Carla Bruni's album is a rather unusual (to me) "easily listening" female vocal with many tracks to serve as audio show demo material :-).

That’s a very impressive sequence itself, and I would hope my comparison would tell you how amazing this mix truly sounds. K (Ryan Gosling) is a Blade Runner, an assassin assigned with tracking down and retiring late model Replicants who weren't pre-programmed with a built-in lifespan.

First, some of the external shots of the city in rain or smoke can look suddenly quite soft compared with the stunning clarity of the rest of the image.

The inclusion of the Yamaha CS-80 synthesizer from the original soundtrack gives a sense of déjà vu and keeping with the Vangelis legacy. The previous film dealt with coming to grips with the ideas of humanity and what it means, this one goes deeper and looks at different angles, while tackling the one thing that always felt painful (in a good way) about the 1982 film. Now, looking at this film from a visual aspect here, in terms of filmmaking, I have to honestly just first geek out.With decades of expectations stacked against it in addition to my personal bias, somehow Blade Runner 2049 emerged as an incredible sequel that not only proves its worth but expands and builds upon the foundations its predecessor.
