''Roger expressed his view point on the larger imager Alexa 65 in 2015 before they went into production on Blade Runner. It was clear he wasn't that interested in the new box of tricks because it added post workflow headaches and he didn't see the necessity of the larger, higher resolution imager.

Yet Arri claims the movie is shot with the 65 and so do the press releases.

Not that it's a big deal, but it's just an interesting side note because that would mean non-anamorphic, which is a staple of the Blade Runner and in my eyes, critical to it's look. It's clear the cinematography will be spherical on the movie, which is unfortunate. Deakins isn't really an anamorphic guy anyway, he likes things clean.''

I'm also thoroughly sick and tired of the orange and teal color scheme. Really, can't ANY moviemakers today break out of that trend????

I've avoided all trailers so far (l like going into movies I want to see as green as possible), but since these shorts seem to be designed to make the plot more coherent I'm wondering if I should check them out....

Did you see Alien - Covenant? If you did, then you've already checked one out, a long one at that.

lol, when I heard "that's the spirit" I felt nauseous.

I've been cautiously optimistic, now I'm not so sure...

yes, dolby vision and dolby atmos see here: https://www.dolby.com/us/en/cinema/t...-releases.html

BUT, whether your local dolby cinema is showing it is another story; there have been very strange release schedules at some of the dolby cinemas in the past for some reason...

my local dobly vision theater is also showing The FInal Cut the Thursday before, but I can't find if it is in dolby vision or not; it wasn't graded in DV for the UHD, but it was for the streaming link that was provided; so theoretically it should be, but who knows how these people work..

Come on cinema owners. Get your stuff together. Here I am - wanting to spend premium dollars on a movie and they're going to end up pushing me back to a matinee or even worse Redbox rental.

Stupid.

To me at least what's "stupid" is passing up seeing this on a big screen because of some missing sound or video enhancements. It's not like you'll be stuck watching a version of it in an 80's run down movie box theater like we had to do back during the original movies run. Even without the "enhancements" the movie should look and sound pretty darn stellar, much better than anything seen at home.

I think you're underestimating how crappy some of the non-premium theaters can be even now; it's hard to appreciate even good aspects when you are sitting there seething in anger.

One time I went to a "normal" screening and all the sound was coming out of only one speaker (front upper-right); I'm looking around stunned and no one in the audience seemed to notice or care (got a refund of course, but what a massive waste of time for us traveling to the theater, parking, waiting, and going home).

That's an extreme example, but there were just so many bad experiences (focus, bright rope-lighting in the theater, horrible sound, torturous seats--I have bad arthritis--, seats uncomfortably close to strangers, just awful black levels, on and on) I only go to Dolby Cinema or the best IMAX 2D anymore; damn expensive but at least the only thing I really complain about now is the quality of the movie itself!

Wow, that's a shame, I haven't had any of those horrible experiences since maybe the 80's when theaters we just ragtag setups. The theaters we have around here are awesome and I don't recall ever sitting in a theater "seething" due to a theaters display set up, or sound set up, must be horrible having to live like that.

Maybe much better than anything seen in your home

Yea no kidding. The only theaters that can match a good home front projector are the Dolby theaters. Most of the rest are using very low contrast projectors (like 2000:1 or so). Dark scenes generally look terrible on them. Blacks are grey.

OTOH, they do generally have good sound.

Yup the original in 4K on my 10' scope screen projected by the RS520 blows away anything around here picture wise (no local Dolby theaters ). The new Atmos setup is better sounding than all but a couple theaters I can think of and that's still pretty close

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/blade_runner_2049

Reviews are coming in and all but the moron at Forbes are positive. Several are saying this is a masterpiece and the best film of the year. I wouldn't call the guy at Forbes names if he didn't claim this and the original lacked substance. How do you get to be a film critic when you can't see any substance in Blade Runner?

Since when is an American Business magazine (Forbes) known for being a movie review outlet?

No kidding. And after reading that they probably should stick with what they know. If their film advice is that far off, makes one question what else they are off on.

I'm more a metacritic guy than rottentomatoes; looking very promising: http://www.metacritic.com/movie/blad...critic-reviews


I'm pretty shocked; I was kind of just hoping for some impressive visuals, but it sounding like it's actually a good movie.

With the Alien Series at Full Tango Uniform, I expected Blade Runner to be yet another dose of steaming BS.
Critics live to put our butts in the theater, so I'll take all this high praise with caution.

Wouldn't it be something if someone allowed a good one to creep through?
