Villeneuve. I liked Prisoners, didn't like Arrival and hated Sicario and 2049. So I guess I'm not a fan.Just watched it today. I wasn't bored but neither was I impressed.
It was okay - visually spectacular in many scenes and some attempt at a twist at the end but the pacing is typical Denis Villeneuve - snail slow.
I didn't like the original. I hated this. There's a big reveal in the middle that Gosling is the chosen one...but I thought that had already been established a half hour prior? Then he meets Morpheus who tells him he's not the chosen one. Then he's trans and the chosen one again. Then not the chosen one after all. Who gives a f*ck? I spent most of the running time dreading that it would end with a sequel tease. If there's another sequel in 30 years, I hope I'm "retired" by then."
Some others reference its "glacial pace", etc.Laura Clifford said:There are no new ideas here, poignancy achieved by rehashing moments of the original film with dollops lifted from Spielberg's A.I. and Spike Jonze's Her.
Maybe with nothing around to pollinate they had to concentrate on making honey.And what's with the bees?
Probably Deckard's. Their hives are very close to the casino where he has elected to spend his last days, and he'd need to produce his own food in order not to run out of supplies. Anyone with a little military experience would tell you honey is perhaps the best survival food to be found in the wild.And what's with the bees?
Why is this experience special?Actually, I found the Joy parts one of the weakest bits of the film: partly because it didn’t make a lot of sense to me (does every Joy dream of being a real person like his version? If so, why is his experience special? If not, why does his particular version of Joy want this?)
