Blade Runner 2049 is a Sequel So Good it Makes The Original Better (Review)

This was in my top 5 most anticipated movies of 2017.   I could not wait to see it.  I discovered the original Blade Runner in my teens and loved it with that special love that hipsters have for their underappreciated favorites.  There was a lot riding on this sequel.  The trailers looked mouthwatering and I was all in for the crazy hype.  It isn’t easy to write a sequel, particularly for an older film whose fans loved it as much as I did.  Would Denis Villeneuve deliver like he did on Sicario and Arrival?  Or would this be another over-hyped cash grab?

Blade Runner 2049 is an Instant Sci-Fi Classic (Review)

Blade Runner 2049 is an Instant Sci-Fi Classic (Review)

When I walked into the theater to see Blade Runner 2049 on Monday, I had no idea what to expect. What was the movie actually about? Why is there a sequel to a movie that bombed at the box office and was later deemed a misinterpreted cult classic? As somebody who finds the original 1982 Blade Runner to be highly overrated, I write this review surprised by two things: first, that a sequel to a movie, viewed by many as a misinterpreted, neo-noir sci-fi classic, would be made 35 years later; secondly, (and more surprisingly) that this sequel, Blade Runner 2049, is not only leaps and bounds better than the original, but is also one of the best movies I’ve seen in recent years. Thanks to the movie’s mysterious story, memorable characters, gorgeous visuals, and unparalleled direction from Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 is an instant sci-fi classic and one which will be talked about for years to come.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2: Action Packed & Also The Funniest Movie of The Year! (Review)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2: Action Packed & Also The Funniest Movie of The Year! (Review)

I’ve been looking forward to the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel for a while now.  I loved the first one and the second one looked awesome.  And I’m here to tell you:  it was.  And that was even after the whole ordeal that comes with seeing something everyone else wants to see right away – we had long waits, the line cutters, the seat savers (actually that one was almost me), the guy with the crying baby who wouldn’t leave.  Even with all those, I still had a wonderful time.   Read more

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Lovable Characters Help Propel Robust Sequel (Review)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Lovable Characters Help Propel Robust Sequel (Review)

Three years after coming out of left field and becoming everyone’s favorite group of superheroes overnight, the A-holes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) are back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The first entries in these superhero outings from Marvel Studios are usually “fairly good.” But that was not the case with 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which is arguably one of the very best movies to date in the MCU. So, going into Vol. 2, the expectations are fairly high. Vol. 2 hits all the right notes as a sequel; it’s bigger in every aspect – from scope to characters and action. Bigger can be better in many cases, but Vol. 2’s plot keeps those bigger things rather slender and rangy at times. But still, director James Gunn’s usage of these characters we’ve all come to know and love help propel this robust, entertaining sequel.
