Movie of the Week 10
Blade Runner 2049 2017 drama mystery sci-fi
Available for streaming on Prime Video
This is a cool looking, atmospheric action/sci-fi flick that is a sequel the classic 1982 Blade Runner movie. The basic plot is the same as the original; Special cops, nicknamed Blade Runners, are still killing replicants that go off the reservation. A few random thoughts - there was endless fanboy jibber-jabber about Dekkard being a replicant in the original 1982 film – this question is settled once and for all in the sequel. Poor Ryan Gosling cannot act his way out of a paper bag, or was he just trying hard to be “in character”, i.e. robotic. In that case, he succeeded. Rarely are the reviews so sharply divided – either a 1 or a 10, with few in between. Finally as in the original, I love the flying cars. Where can I buy one?
