'Blade Runner 2049' Is Masterful Sci-Fi Cinema

04 October 2017

Blade Runner 2049 proves to be a particularly weird answer to that question.

Officer K is charged with stopping Wallace from building his army of replicants by Lieutenant Joshi (Robin Wright), which sets him off on a mission to track down the mysterious Rick Deckard, a former blade runner who went missing 30 years ago, shortly after the events of Ridley Scott's 1982 original.

Reprising his role as Deckard, a welcome Harrison Ford brings humanity to a movie peopled with grim synthetics.

Although the folks behind Honest Trailers usually focus on recent flicks, they recently went back to the dystopian future for Ridley Scott's original Blade Runner. 'Blade Runner 2049' was a tough shoot: Harrison Ford. And story-wise, "Blade Runner" was more layered than Scott's other sci-fi landmark, "Alien", three years earlier. It's the latest from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, who took the film world by storm past year with his bizarrely dystopian film The Lobster (about a man who, if he fails to find a replacement for his now-ex wife in 45 days, will be surgically transformed into a lobster). According to the first journalists to see it, you're right to be excited.

Why do we allow politicians to shush us on the gun debate?
When it did, NRA EVP Wayne LaPierre blamed violence in video games and suggested more guns would prevent such events. Sanders said "what we don't want to do is try to create laws that won't stop these types of things from happening".

"It's an existential story", director Denis Villeneuve said.

The look on Harrison Ford's face immediately after he punched Blade Runner 2049 costar Ryan Gosling in the face says a lot. And yet Deakins, who is considered one of our greatest living cinematographers and among the best to ever have done it, has never actually won the Oscar that he's been nominated for so many times.

As the stunning developments in K's investigation take him down an increasingly perilous path, Joi is the only one he knows he can trust completely, and she, in turn, gently guides and encourages him, giving him a perspective no one else could offer. At the birth of the first Blade Runner [Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?], the book that inspired the first Blade Runner, written [by] Philip K. Dick, had that very strong sense of inner paranoia, where people were doubting about [themselves].

What should be known is that with Blade Runner 2049, Villeneuve has outdone himself on a visual scale.

Mourinho: Man United Must Have Right Mentality Vs Crystal Palace
Fellaini is certainly winning over his remaining detractors in the Manchester United fan base. Crystal Palace rarely threatened the United goal and looked a side devoid of a spark.

That being said, the one issue that Blade Runner 2049 does have from a storytelling perspective is that of pacing.

Critics are also raving about the performances of Gosling, Ford, and Leto. "Other times, you don't really have to".

In the end, Blade Runner 2049 honors the legacy of its predecessor while also opening the franchise up to much wider possibilities for the future.
