No Time to Die and Dune. Mostly Dune.

Tenet, No Time To Die and Dune. I actually wanted to watch Tenet at the cinema, but somehow during the timeframe when COVID cases were on decline, me and my friends opted for Blade Runner Director's Cut instead. Can't say that I regret this decision. Will probably watch Tenet a bit later at home.

Director's Cut or Final Cut?

Also you probably already know, but for anyone who doesn't, Blade Runner 2049 is directed by the same man who directed the new Dune (Part 1, and hopefully Part 2 soon).

I did see Tenet recently. I won't say it's not a techincally good movie, because it is well shot, very well acted and may be very well written (if I'm willing to sit through it again and hopefully pay better attention). But for my first time seeing it, I found it borderline unwatchable. Just too much Nolan for one movie to handle.

I meant Final Cut. My bad



 

Looking at the list of both 2020 and 2021 movies I am interested in that have received Covid caused delays:

Ghostbuster Afterlife
Fast 9
Minions: The Rise of Gru
Jungle Cruise
Morbius
Venom 2
Raya and the Last Dragon
Death on the Nile
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Jurassic World Dominion
Fantastic Beasts 3



I miss No Time to Die, since we still need that one to complete that James Bond thread we had going. Godzilla vs the world was also interesting as a popcorn flick. The rest of this year's movie lineup was going to be weak anyway, so I didn't miss that much.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Where does that cut fall in the Deckard is or is not a replicant debate?



Signature goes here!

It does not add anything to this debate. Also, this version of the movie was released like back in 2007 if I'm not mistaken, so most likely if you watched Blade Runner not so long ago, you've probably seen exactly this version. I personally never watched anything other than Final Cut, so can't say what is different in it compared to original and Director's Cut.

I almost got to see Tenet in the theater back in summer but it just never aligned .... otherwise No Time to Die and Dune are my choices.

I'm still torn on Godzilla vs Kong.

I am a massive Godzilla fan, but I don't want to support the film if they pull the same BS as the 1962 original and make Kong win despite him being by far the inferior monster.

I feel like that movie is gonna go one of two very cliche ways

1) they both beat the shit out of each other and walk away at the end with no real winner just so they can make everyone happy that their favorite didn't lose technically

2) they fight and then suddenly a bigger threat emerges that they have to team up for and end the movie as allies

i doubt there will actually be a "winner" in it tbh but then again I haven't seen the original like you're mentioning
