I'm going to go out on a limb and say I didn't like Bladerunner 2049 all that much. I enjoyed it but I doubt it will stay with like the original. Or at all.
Crucially, it didn't do that weird semi-religious futuristic dystopia intrigue thing to me like the first film. It just looked like a very pretty modern sci-fi flick starring 'strong but silent' hunk Ryan Gosling. The first wasn't gorgeous, it was moody and ominous and grotesque.
It was too respectful to the first but lacked it's realness.
