(of Netscape fame)
does not like “Blade Runner 2049”.
I'm not sure if I hated it as much as he did,
but I don't disagree with anything he said.
He also brought up a point I forgot to mention in my original review—the score.
I loathed the score,
and I'm sure if that's because I don't care for the Hans Zimmer horn—you know,
that deep horn BRRRRRRRAAAAAWWWWRWRRRMRMRMMRMRMMMMM that is omnipresent in every one of his scores,
or the fact that the theater had the volume cranked to 11 which was threatening to blow out the speakers.
there were moments when you could
(which added to the neo-noir atmosphere of “Blade Runner”),
but such moments
were overshadowed by
Hans Zimmer's score
I did not like that,
And I'm still conflicted if I liked “Blade Runner 2049.”
