Blade Runner 2049 (3/10 stars)

Blade runner was not an enjoyable movie for me.
People are praising the atmosphere. They are correct to do so, however there is more to a movie then atmosphere.

The movie was really slow, even boring. I think it really comes down to three things. The atmosphere was dark and depressing, the plot was very slow to develop, the main character was unemotional.
Any one of those things, or even two and it could still have worked, but with all three makes the movie slow and plodding.
And that is besides the fact that the thing the bad guy was after just did not make sense, and they covered it up by making him not wholly rational even though he was a CEO of one of the largest companies on Earth.

The original movie was good in large part because of the gray, because of the unknowns in it. Were Replicants machines or not? Was Decker a Replicant or not? Was what he was doing right or not?
The new one has a more cookie cutter plot, there are bad guys and good guys and they make clear early on that the Replicants are human.
