Saw it yesterday. I was very happy how well it turned out. I'm a huge blade runner fan and was scared that they wouldn't capture the "soul" of the original. I think they really did an excellent job overall. The pacing was slow but so was the original. It never got to be boring and I always felt that things were happening. It just shows that you can have an entertaining sci-fi movie without shaky cam.

I think casting Gosling was a great choice. Without him, I don't think the movie would have been as good.

I also thought they did a good job with the music. Original but still meshing well with what Vangelis did in 82.

Can't wait for the blu-ray to be released so I can do a couple of viewings for more easter eggs and study.

If you haven't seen it yet, I would highly recommend it.

Sounds like you've "heard" a lot of stuff that may not be true. It has not done great at the box office, but reviews are actually very good. Both by critics and viewers: http://www.metacritic.com/movie/blade-runner-2049

My personal opinion of why it is not doing well is because it's not mainstream Michael Bay, huge explosions, shaky cam,... sci-fi. It's for a more mature audience. The original Blade Runner did not do well at the theatres at its release and now it is considered one of the cinematic masterpieces of the last 50 years.

Again, I recommend you see it yourself and form your own opinion.

I would rethink this. It truly is one of the most unique and beautiful films in the last few years.

Just listened to the latest one on Laserdisc based games. Another great episode. He really puts in the effort and it shows. A very high-quality product. I really hope it keeps going.

A soundbar is certainly going to be a good upgrade from the speakers in the TV. If you have two regular speakers (you mentioned using rear's with the soundbar), you may want to ditch the soundbar and go with a standard 2.0 setup. All things being equal, a 2.0 setup is better than a soundbar.

I really like some of the classic sci-fi stuff. Forbidden Planet was really good in my opinion. I own two versions on LD. Cool Stuff.

Don't listen with headphones at home but I do at work.

I use a Grado sr80e. Cheap, durable, and good sound.

A little late to the party,... but as an audiophile I figure I would chime in. As others mentioned, nothing really bad happens with using higher power amps with speakers rated at lower max watt ratings. You can blow a speaker (any speaker) with enough power. However, this would only happen if you were playing beyond the maximum volume. So unless you are absolutely blasting the speaker at crazy high volume (at which you would get massive distortion anyway), you can use any power amp with any "power rated" speaker.
