I so want this to be good.
I want to trust in Villeneuve because Arrival is apparently really good (I haven't seen it yet, myself)...
... but this movie is King of Unnecessary Sequel Mountain.
I want it to be good, I really want it to be good, and the trailers are promising, but... but... I just don't have a lot of optimism for it.

I think that critic’s take is utter bullshit. Bladerunner 2049 probably has the most anti-corporate plot of any movie I’ve ever seen. So it’s hard to buy a narrative that it follows the corporate script in any way. It’s set in a lawless future ruled by corporate oligarchs. No citizen believes or even acts like they have rights to speak of. The police department’s stated purpose is “to maintain order.” Full stop.
It could be more heroic? Are fucking kidding dude? It’s a fucking dystopian horror piece.
