Superb actor. Liked him loads from the moment I saw The Believer, and having recently loved and purchased The Nice Guys, I can safely say he's definitely an actor I'm pleased to see on the headline list of any upcoming release.

I liked The Nice Guys up to a point then it went a bit off the rails and out of Noir territory near the end.

Ok here is my problem.

Blade Runner 2049, which is getting incredible reviews all over the place (it's even been called a "miracle"), opens tomorrow in France. In Paris, it's only playing at regular 2D/3D theaters OR in IMAX 3D (or even in IMAX 4DX but that's only for future King Kong movies in my book). No regular IMAX.

I'm not an anti 3D bigot like some of you guys but I'm pretty sure this film wasn't created for 3D, but it may very well have been created for IMAX. So what the hell should I do?

Thanks all of you, I got my answer by Sir Roger Deakins himself:

Quote
We shot the film in 2D and in a wide screen format.

Quote
My preferred version is the standard 2D widescreen version. A problem I have with some viewing systems is their use of silvered screens. The image projected on a silvered screen lacks saturation as well as density as it falls off from a hot spot in the center of vision. This may not be so apparent for someone sitting in the optimum viewing seat but it is a compromise in terms of image quality wherever you are seated, though it maybe a compromise worth accepting if you are a fan of 3D.

Quote
Anyone who knows me also knows I do not like 3D.

Quote
We knew we were going to produce a 3D version down the line so we did have that in mind. But when you shoot in 2D you are trying to create depth when it is called for and also reduce depth when that seems appropriate 3D conversion or not. You could say, and some do, that we should have shot everything on an 18mm lens and with a constantly moving camera but that would have been another film entirely.

So 2D it will be, whatever that means down the line.

Really, really good. Flawed, just like its predecessor, but also colder (I know it was designed this way, but I would have liked to see a few more close up). It's incredibly well crafted, features some of the best photography I've seen in years: I wasn't convinced by the look of the trailers, but they managed to stay faithful to the aesthetics of Blade Runner in a more modern and Villeneuvesque way. The depth and the thematic of the first Blade Runner are still here, which was really what mattered the most to me. Very good performances all over the place (except for Robin Wright, which is weird since the role seemed like a perfect fit).

I don't know how they managed to get 200 millions dollars to do such a slow and personal movie in this day and age. It's very likely to bomb like the first one... but it's so great to see the studios taking risks these days I just cannot believe it.

Best film of the year by very far, now let's see what it becomes after 10 viewings.

Is it true that Ford is really only in one scene?

It isn't true, but he enters the film much later than the posters and trailers make you think. Also, it isn't a buddy movie. Gosling is alone or with women most of the time.

For you, CJ, an interesting twist from classic noir and neo noir lighting in Blade Runner 2049:

Quote
From German Expressionism to the 1940 Hollywood film noir, cinematographers have always done some of their best and most showy work when dealing with high-contrast, single-source light with no fill. “Blade Runner 2049” has created a future noir look and one of the remarkable things about it is how Deakins creates a futuristic, halogen-like light source — much different than the  direct, hard light source needed to create the classic shadows of noir — for his own twist on genre lighting.
