I wouldn't mind a third film if it involves Denis Villeneuve in some capacity but if it doesn't happen. That's cool as I like the way Blade Runner 2049 ended.
    Yeah, give me Villeneuve. I'd be excited by that announcement where as not so much with Scott in director's chair. He really has some nerve talking shit about Villeneuve's direction. The dude has delivered some amazing films. Scott seems to have lost the touch.

    He's been losing his touch for years. The last film of his that I enjoyed was The Martian but he is often hit-and-miss. For every film like Alien, Blade Runner, and Black Hawk Down (I wanted to mention the extended director's cut of Kingdom of Heaven which I heard is a vastly superior film than the theatrical version), there's duds like White Squall, Body of Lies, and Exodus. He can deliver in films like Black Rain, Thelma and Louise, and American Gangster but I often think people put him very highly when I kind of think he's overrated at times. I'm one of those that doesn't even like Gladiator very much. I doubt he's even in my list of my 100 favorite filmmakers.

    Ridley Scott has certainly lost something, Covenant was a stain on his own franchise IMO. I really liked Prometheus, then he doubled down on the dumb shit that people didn't like about it (dumb scientists etc).

    I also think it's bullshit that Denis Villenueve didn't get nominated for Best Director.

    Villenueve should just do it after Dune, lol.

    I finally got a chance to watch the movie, in UHD, and I'm definitely kicking myself for not having seen this in the theater. What a beautiful film. On my second watch-through now.

    I wish I'd seen it in IMAX.
