A film that is being lauded as “the best sci-fi film of the decade” (painfully ignoring the genius, original, unsettling Ex Machina), is a 2 hour and 40 minute return to the Blade Runner universe of 1982. I have fairly strong feelings about the original, so it was only fair that I expected to have … Continue reading Blade Runner 2049: Nothing is safe from reboots
If you’ve ever mentioned 80’s sci-fi to me – even in passing – there is a 100% possibility that I then brought up Blade Runner – and not in a good way.

Finally a Batman movie that actually shows him for who he really is - and is actually a really fun time.
Was that a brutal title? I’m not sorry and I’ll never try to pretend I am. Obviously, as always, this is NOT SPOILER FREE. Not that you should care – I don’t want you to watch this anyway.
