Confession Time… I’ve never seen Blade Runner…
I know, I know… I’ll do better in life… especially because I want to see this!
1 LOVE – SPECIAL EFFECTS
I know I haven’t seen the original Blade Runner, but I did see both Robocop and Total Recall originals and reboots. Some films can benefit from the advances in technology. I love that they not only will be able to do that, but also work it as a continuation of the cult classic original, not just another reboot.
1 HATE – DATES IN TITLES
Minor, minor gripe here… but all I can think about is when we (the A-holes of the film reviewing internet) hit the year 2049 and look back at this film and think about how we didn’t have [insert whatever future technology appears in film]. See Back to the Future for reference.
1 SURPRISE – FORD, HARRISON FORD
This movie was rumored FOREVER! The only thing that made this seem SLIGHTLY possible after a while was the fact that Ford seemed to be dusting off all his classic roles. Indiana Jones, Han Solo, and now this! Can’t wait for the Con Air sequel!!!
OVERALL – YEAH!
Harrison Ford is back. Ryan Gosling is leading. The shots look beautiful. Ridley Scott is back directing. I’m all in for this… as soon as I find a copy of the first one… Grade?
