"Blade Runner 2049" was an exceptional movie-going experience. The film is 3 hours long, but it pulls you into it futuristic world and you become immersed in the story and it's beautiful, haunting landscapes. The movie is slow. But seeing the director's last movie masterpiece, "Arrival", I knew to expect that. Seeing the 3 short films featured on YouTube was fun as well. As a fan of the first Blade Runner movie, I liked the way this movie cleverly keeps Deckard's true identity a mystery. All the cast members do a fine job, though it would have been fun to see the director's original choice to play Wallace, David Bowie, in that role. I saw the movie in it's regular format, and because of it's length it is not a movie I would run out the next night and see again. But I hope to see it next time in an IMAX theater. I owned the original "Blade Runner" soundtrack featuring Vangelis, and though I won't be downloading it this soundtrack is equally as haunting and atmospheric.
