Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 ★★★★½

Normally I wouldn't write up something so short, but a film like this is too complex for a lazy sod like me to type up a full-length write-up of, at least for the time being.

That said, I'm quite surprised it took me so long to get to this, considering how much I love the original film, though I think the long runtime was somewhat put me off somewhat. While I agree it can be overwhelming, something about this film managed to suck me in until the very end. All I'll say is that it's a truly memorising and beautiful film experience from start to finish, that for me works as both a follow-up and a standalone film.

No, it's not completely flawless, and whenever or not it surpasses the original is debatable. However, something about this film clicked with me.
