Best movie. Soundtrack fits perfectly and I love it all so much.
Flight to LAPD
Digging: Joni Mitchell - Song to a Seagull
People give this movie sequel a lot of flack. It's really good, and the soundtrack is great.
Digging: Gojira - The Way of All Flesh
Do they? I've heard a lot of people claim that this one is better than the original.
Digging: Jute Gyte - Perdurance
Digging: Thinking Plague - Moonsongs
Well, I haven't seen this one, but yeah, I've seen a good amount of people saying this one is better.
Never seen anyone say this is better
Well, I have. Don't ask me why they think that, I never asked.
"one of the best sequels in recent movie history"
it's far better than the original in almost every way agreed
Digging: Strange Ranger - Remembering the Rockets
Don’t be silly
Album Rating: 4.2
2049 is better in a lot of ways imo, for one thing it feels like a much more ambitious and complete story than the original, which has multiple versions with different endings none of which are particularly satisfying.
There's also like no character development to be found except maybe the villain at the end, which is an amazing scene (the Tears in the Rain speech). I find it genius in more aesthetic ways like the atmosphere, design of the world, visuals/special effects, the music obviously.
Ridley Scott's later assertion that Deckard is a replicant is also dumb, so I'm glad someone else took the helm this time and let the viewer decide for themselves if it's true or not while not really treating it as that important in the grand scheme of things.
Digging: Bon Iver - i,i
It's the perfect sequel for an already perfect movie, that's for sure, I love both.
Digging: Cross Record - Cross Record
ya,ll people are crazy. Anyway Brazil is better than both (;
Album Rating: 4.5
The inception/adaptation and mostly the execution of the first movie puts it above all (potential) sequels, end of story. That being said, 2049 is an expertly crafted sequel.
Love both of them to bits. Brilliant movies, with great soundtracks. I think the sequel was superbly done.
Album Rating: 4.5
I think they both complement each other well, I don't compare them like that at all
never understood how people sit through the middle section of the original and not think that movie is supremely flawed at best
yeah it starts and ends well (in the better edits) but jesus fucking christ
I’ll second what rock said.
The first one is a pioneering effort bettered by few, the second one is incredible as it mines the origional source.
