Do originals dream of electric sequels?

This is one of the rare occasions when the question is actually worth being asked: Is the sequel better than the original?

It probably is, but given my lack of enthusiasm for the original I won't see it. More reasons not to see it include: Grandpa Ford rehashing yet another roll.

But it's so good!

It is also disconnected enough from the original that you can see it pretending it's a standalone movie.

smirnoff wouldn't make it past the ninety-minute mark. To his credit.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

The subplots of BLADE RUNNER 2049 detract a lot from the main storyline. Ryan Gosling's acting is pretty bad too.

The original all the way.

I'll get to 2049 eventually.  Not in any hurry.

Bumping this up in the hopes oldkid has now watched the movie and seen the light.

Feel like 2049 is a movie that only 25 year-olds love.
