I personally prefer the slower pacing of Denis Villeneuve's film, as it allowed the opportunity to really take in how well the shots are constructed and I just really love slow-burn films, but I still absolutely adored this version. This is basically what the film would be like if Ridley Scott took over in the editing bay, since he wasn't a fan of the running time and pacing. Everything I already loved about the original Blade Runner 2049 is still present here, and as much as I dug Roger Deakins' gorgeous cinematography (he absolutely deserved the Oscar, in my opinion), I did enjoy how the editor made it look closer in style to Scott's 1982 original. Excellent stuff.

I rather enjoyed this edit and I have a feeling that if this had been the version released in cinema's, then the film would have done better financially and we would be getting sequels right now.

I share the editor's opinion on the cinematography and pacing choices that the original film suffers from. I therefore had pretty high expectations on the subtle cuts and visual clarity tweaks. After viewing, I was not disappointed. The overall effect is that you don't even notice the differences, it's just less taxing to watch. Very deft hand applied to this project, it would have been so easy to go overboard and substantially alter the mood and feel of the original. Great job!

TM2YC has done an amazing job of editing a film in a way that makes you wonder how the original version was 13 minutes longer. Seriously, Blade Runner 2049 was wayyyyy too long and the fan editor helped shorten it without changing anything besides tightening up the pace. The audio and video are flawless, and my only wish would be to see TM2YC further hack away at the fat in the rest of the film. Getting it down from 163 mins (2 hrs 43 mins) to 150 mins (2 hrs 30 mins) with just speeding up the pace is impressive enough. However, 1982's Blade Runner was a much tighter 118 mins (1hr 58 mins) and I believe there are enough overly-long investigative scenes that can be further trimmed or entirely excised to get a follow up fan edit down to under 2 hours.

I heard recently that Ridley Scott wasn't happy with Blade Runner 2049, apparently the pace was too slow and the film over long. Well Mr Scott I think you are going to be seriously satisfied with TM2YC's Aerodynamik, not only has he created a shorter version but he hasn't had to cut any scenes...proving that the film was unnecessarily long. The new colour grading was satisfying to the eye and more in line with the original -the colour palette is not so garish in Aerodynamik. I would still like to see the first Rachel reveal (Deckard's memory)removed along with a few snippets of LUV's dialogue but I understand that the point of the edit was to quicken the pace only. The 11.7gb MKV looked fantastic on a 120" projector screen for which I was pleasantly surprised. This is the version I will watch from now on. Highly recommended
