I liked both.  I'm an anomaly!   :roll:  ;)

I am just happy someone in Hollywood is still willing to make and produce movies like these these days!

One thing I've noticed is a lot of people who really love 2049 don't feel the same way about the original. 

That's my view of Tron, but I like both Blade Runners equally.

I just took a date to see it. I loved the original and she said she enjoyed the original as well. We made it to the orphans, looked at each other and walked out. I've only ever walked out of one other movie .. Gods and Generals.

I dunno.. like I said i just think it's different people like different things. I know the Internet is blowing up for 2049 but it also blew up for District 9 and as stated previously The Arrival.

I thought The Arrival was watchable but man I absolutely hated District 9.. once again for the similar reasons.. the script.

I honestly had a tinge of should we just go? towards the 2 hour mark.

Last movie I walked out of was I think The Thin Red Line which is also slowly paced with little actual story.. or at least the part I saw.

The thing to reiterate is that movie underperformed at the box office from day 1 which tells us that people were largely not interested in the movie or it's subject matter.  Ex Machina is a better comparison to 2049, similarly had very high ratings and similarly didn't blow up the box office considering 2049 has already out earned it by a long shot.  That tells me the interest in full-on scifi flicks is lagging, as we all know 2001 or even the original Bladerunner would also falter at the box office.  It takes X-plosions to get people into theaters.... cerebral stuff is left for the critics.
