Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 ★★★★★

Say what you will, this is a masterpiece in my eyes. After only my third viewing this has really cemented itself as one of my all-time favorites. Visually stunning from start to finish, gorgeous set design throughout the film, even the sound design is amazing. The performances are all amazing, the score is so soothing to the ear, and of course Denis Villeneuve's direction is about as good as it gets. Not many sequels can top the original, especially not after a 30+ year difference, but this film surpassed Blade Runner by a mile and then some. And I love Blade Runner, so it just goes to show how much I love this film. I began 2018 with this film, now I'm ending it with it. Happy New Year everybody!
