Saw Blade Runner 2049 tonight. Absolutely excellent. Looked awesome. Great story. Makes you think and confused, but in a good way. I also thought the 160 minutes went by fast.
There are things in the universe that are simply and purely evil. A warrior does not seek to understand them, or to compromise with them. He seeks only to obliterate them.

It's a gorgeous movie. See it on the biggest screen you can. Steps on its on toes a few times, but all in all, a fantastic movie that functions very well on its own as well as a sequel.

In a surprise, Netflix acquired Cloverfield sequel "The Cloverfield Particle" which was previously going to be released in theaters as God Particle.

It kind of sucks. I loved the first Cloverfield and loved 10CL but this was a mess, and definitely felt like a "Made for Netflix" movie. I guess it explains why Cloverfield happens, but then goes on to create more questions from there.

How did you see it already?

This blew my head off when I saw the ad, I had no idea they were doing another sequel and I thought it looked amazing. Please God, give us toys!  ;D

The movie was ok. Not as good as the others for sure. Worth a watch, but very reminiscent of Event Horizon and Life. Among others.

It was cruel to announce that film during the Super Bowl when I had to work the next morning.

The movie was up as soon as the Super Bowl ended, so around 9:30 CST. Still plenty of time to watch before bedtime. :)

Some of us eastern folks had to get up at early the next day for work.

I watched it yesterday.  It was pretty decent.  Some stuff didn't make any sense in the framework they set up.

I watched it last night, wasn't exactly what I was hoping for...nothing in there at all about the Tagruato Corporation for example. At least we got a Slusho reference.

I think I would have preferred seeing more of what was happening on Earth as opposed to the station. I guess they didn't have the budget.

I didn't really have a lot of questions afterwards, I felt like they pretty much tied everything up, at least as far as the first movie goes. Little harder to see how it ties into the 2nd movie though. Gonna have to think about that more.
