Anyone hyped about this? Initially I wasn't wild about the idea, but maybe studios have learnt from the Lucas-era Star Wars debacle and are giving directors free reign to pursue franchise sequels/reboots etc as art than merely paint-by-numbers box-office results. The reviews are so universally good that I'm salivating. Caught one 20 second trailer at a cinema, and I'm now awaiting the rapture.


  • I had absolutely zero interest or expectation in this since it was announced - mainly because of the end of the original's director's cut. Like, if you watched that... why is ________ in this movie? I know it was ambiguous, but I also know what was the more meaningful ending.

    But there's been loads of positivity around it, and what I've seen has not really been in the "it's comfortable for the hardcore fans" way, so I might give it a go.

    I love movies, I studied film and work on them, but I get cautious when things grow "fandoms", and when THOSE get sequels I get really cautious. I just want there to be good movies, I don't want subcultures based around fantasizing yourself into their worlds.

    I'm interested only because of the reviews. But Interstellar got raves too, and that movie was just two decent action films crammed into one.

    Anyone see that new Alien movie? Saw some people saying good things about that one as well, got me curious but I haven't checked it out yet.

    I doesn't suck.

    It's not the same as the OG, and without the otherworldy music of Vangelis it doesn't feel quite the same, but it is a thought-provoking film, full of great imagery. Still digesting just how good. For me it's 8 out of 10 territory. My only complaint is that it doesn't feel as emotional, which, given the subject matter is a shame - the thing I liked about the OG is that the fake humans were more human than the real ones. More vulnerable. Maybe the new film needs more suffering!
