That excites me more than the live action sequel...

The social media embargo just dropped and the early reaction is extremely positive. I'm getting pretty excited for this now especially for Roger Deakins' cinematography.

I just want to know, does Vangelis actually do any score in the movie?

No, Vangelis had no involvement in this. They were going to hire a goofball named Johann Johannsson to do the score but did away with him; now the film is scored by Hans Zimmer and Ben Wallfisch.

This is just one reason I'm cautious regarding this movie. Vangelis's score helped make the original film.

I get the impression that Vangelis is kind of a recluse today.

I really liked it. Itís impeccably made, beautiful to look at, and it feels like Blade Runner. Itís a real movie too. The script doesnít read like a little golden book, and itís not just set pieces strung together with shot/reverse-shot exposition.

Just saw it. Definitely an entry on the "best sequels of all time" lists in the future. I did miss Vangelis a bit, but the soundtrack was perfect for this film, so it was fine. Plus, when a Vangelis piece did show up, it was done powerfully. Like that last scene, which legitimately had me choked up a bit.

I put it off for a bit until the reviews came in, but once they were glowing, I made a point to. I think we're going to end up being the minority until it hits DVD or Blu-Ray, though. The film's ended up with a bleh opening and probably won't do much more than make its money back.

It kind of irritated me at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I understood. The promotional campaign for this film was kind of garbage. It relied entirely on nostalgia, assuming everyone had seen the first film and went "look, it's Deckard". The trailers told us nothing about the film ahead of time, to the point I didn't even know what the movie was supposed to be about going in, aside from "more Blade Runner". I can imagine that enticing the more casual theatergoers among us.

I'm glad that the marketing for this movie didn't spoil it, there are things that happened in the movie that would be difficult not to spoil.

There's a point where you're keeping a film so close to the vest, no one cares or wants to see it because they don't even know what it's about. You don't have to spoil anything to talk about K's search for meaning and identity. Even if they did spoil it a bit, well, they need to sell the movie and this movie has enough twists to sustain itself. I mean, hell, did they really need to act so tight lipped in the ad campaign about what K is? It's addressed up top, maybe five minutes into movie that's about fifteen minutes shy of three hours long, so matter of factly it was never meant to be a secret.
