Don't worry, neither did I (except for the dove part) until I read some articles about it!

I thought Bladerunner 2049 had an interesting story to tell that was more engaging than the original movie, although parts of the script could have been excised without detriment to the narrative.

Visually it was ok. I found the visuals were rather sterile compared to the claustrophobia and decay of the original movie. I appreciate the look they were trying to go for but, at times it felt more like I was in Mega City One than I was in the Bladerunner universe.

I'd definitely have ended the movie about 30secs to a minute sooner than the cinematic cut.

Finally saw it this week. I've seen the original (twice, theatrical release only both times, and it was about 15 years ago, so I'm a bit fuzzy on the original).

I was spell-bound for the entire three hours. Visually stunning, the soundtrack is amazing and intense, and the performances were absolutely fantastic. Possible consideration for inclusion in my top 10 favorite movies (although the fact that it fails the Bechdel test is my one niggling issue).
