Yeah the artwork on the 4K/ 3D steelbook is absolutely awful but it's the content that matters. Great to have both discs in one set.

I have the steel next to me right now and I think it looks beautiful, so that's definitely subjective...

I think it definitely looks worse in pictures than it does in person.

Joi looks like Janice form the Dr Teeth and The Electric Mayhem band.

On the plus side, if you tilt it at just the right angle you can barely see it

Yes opinions do tend to be
"Still in all, every night we does the tell, so that we 'member who we was and where we came from... but most of all we 'members the man that finded us, him that came the salvage. And we lights the city, not just for him, but for all of them that are still out there. 'Cause we knows there come a night, when they sees the distant light, and they'll be comin' home."

The audio is definitely mixed too loud on this disc, to the point of harsh clipping in places, which is so nice when you use headphones and you get that in your ear(mostly the right side)

When I saw it at the cinema the screen was rippling. Like that cup of water in Jurassic Park.

Yeah, I just looked it up again - been a while since I had seem them.

The most obvious difference is the front cover. The first editions feature the "neon" colouring, whereas the second edition has the plain-style cover (same as the standard Blu).

I've got #73 of the first edition, but I am curious as to whether the second edition featured anything different besides the cover - perhaps some alternate images in the booklet?

Same here - 2D Digital IMAX viewing (with the best PQ I've ever witnessed theatrically), and a viscerally tactile and LOUD sound mix that in conjunction with the large, bathed-in-colors images provided for a sensual experience quite unlike anything I've seen before - a very pure cinematic "language" indeed.

I'm glad to read to Sony/WB(?) Blu-ray sound is mixed loud as well, certainly insofar that it represents the theatrical/IMAX experience fairly accurately, and as long as it doesn't mean the sound is clipping.

Has anyone made some comparison between the WB and Sony Blu-ray editions, to see if there's any meaningful discrepancies in the picture quality between the two? Moreover, would the 16-bit sound from the Sony, given the number of channels to been the same, be inferior to the WB 24-bit due to the reduced bit-depth alone?

Blade Runner 2049 CD Soundtrack Limited Editions
The booklet is the same one with both limited editions both using the front artwork of the second edition CD digipak

Booklet content is also the same in the standard jewel case CD soundtrack and that has the front artwork of the first limited edition


I have the second edition of the limited edition CD soundtrack and IMO looks lot better than the first edition as that's the same artwork as the standard jewel case CD soundtrack

Iím picturing you wearing dark glasses indoors a la Anna Wintour!

Iím always uncomfortably aware that people who make unboxing videos are judging the quality of the graphic design, packaging etc. and the world at large is judging their table, their wallpaper, the penknife they use to remove the shrink wrap...

This forum reminds me of Mean Girls.

Totally blown away by this film. Didn't see it at the cinema (I've boycotted my local for years) so naturally I kept Monday evening free to watch it. Now I haven't seen the making of Blade Runner docs for a while, or flicked through the pages of Future Noir by Paul Sammon, but unless I'm mistaken wasn't the
[Show spoiler] opening scene with the spinner landing next to the shack and the pot boiling away on the stove almost exactly the same as the original story boards for Blade Runner which were later discarded with all the re-writes to the script?

It was meant as a little homage / Easter egg for the fans.

More than a homage IMO, much of it was the original start for Blade Runner that Ridley had planned as covered in the Dangerous Days doc.

Itís also perhaps worth seeing the short 2048: Nowhere to Run - before watching the film IMO.

The blu ray has a great transfer (although glad I saw it at the cinema) and sound, have a dts x virtual soundbar and it sounds superb.

Now the documentaries, well Designing the World of Blade Runner is a good watch and they cover lots in 21 mins, but it was so fast paced.

I can hope that a fan made documentary is in the works, thatís pulls content from the docs, YouTube and audio and we get a 2+ in-depth documentary on Blade Runner 2049.

Just finished watching this so some non-spoilerific thoughts...
The Good:
The visuals were amazing.
Performances were great, in particular Ford.
If you told me a couple of years ago that the Blade Runner sequel would have Vangelis replaced with Hans Zimmer I would have been appalled and yet... the soundtrack was very effective...
The not-so-good:
While the film looked amazing, there is something about the claustrophobic atmosphere of the original film that is completely lost when broadening the environs in this film...
Some of the nods to the original felt like (admittedly clever) fan fiction.
I was not a fan of the Ana De Armas holographic character.

This is probably as good a film to follow in the Blade Runner universe as we could have hoped for, I shudder to think about the way sequels could have been made to this. And yet there is something so unique and singular about the atmosphere of the original film that despite how incredibly well made this one is, it canít hold a candle to the first film. Having said that I will certainly be revisiting Blade Runner 2049 many times in the future.
