You read it. I though it was clear?

Blomkamp has no horse in this race, his horse ran away a long time ago. In fact I don't think he ever had a horse. 🤣   And yeah he really should be clear if he's being sarcastic or not.

Apparently he was being sarcastic in a follow up tweet.

Apparently I'm a dummy if I didn't realize his plain text tweet of "What a f**king a**hole" was just sarcasm?

Right ::)

Blomkamp has lashed out at people before on twitter, so it's very difficult to discern his so-called "sarcasm". More like he's probably just doing damage control after he got berated numerous times and cooled down a bit.

Villeneuve (unlike Blomkamp) did "get to play in Ridley Scott's universe". 2049 then proceeded to bomb at the box office and what happens? Villeneuve gets to make another big-budget film based on one of the best sci-fi novels ever written (that also happens to be Villeneuve's favourite book),

Now Dune is getting rave reviews and Warner media have assured Villeneuve that he'll still get to make part two even if Dune underperforms at the box office.

Whereas Blomkamp has numerous big sci-fi projects that never came to fruition, Halo, Alien 5, Robocop, D9 sequel and now his latest film is getting negative reviews.

So one can understand why Blomkamp would be feeling a wee bit jealous towards this fellow Canadian director. Still very bad form to lash out at him like that.

The first rule of the internet - you can't understand sarcasm or serious things without a smile. He don't put the smile = he can be serious.

He rip off himself constantly. But I agree, his futuristic perspective is so 2011. He must just let it go.

I just think the way he explores stuff's become tired because of so many imitators between his films. I got tired of that kind of chunky technology science fiction visual style back in 2011.
