Bladerunner 2049

   23 October 2017, early evening

I used to be good about writing about every single movie I watched, no matter what or when. I’m behind: I watched two films at TIFF this year I haven’t written about. And they were both great. Anyway, this is about them. I watched the new Bladerunner film with Mezan last week. I had high hopes for the film. It looked like it would be amazing, but a sequel is a sequel. The movie opens with Ryan Gosling, playing another bladerunner, retiring a replicant played by Jose Bautista. (I think it’s amazing Bautista is this legit actor now.) The opening of the film is really strong, and sets the stage for everything that follows. The films score is incredible. The films visuals are even better. It’s been shot beautifully. It’s a long film. I wish these things were edited more aggressively sometimes. I don’t think they needed the two and a half hours to tell the story they wanted to tell. Regardless, this is a film to watch. I saw it in IMAX, and think that’s the way to go.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
