    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★

    Not quite the masterpiece that many had hoped for. And even if it was shit - which it's not - it would be worth watching for Deakins' cinematography alone.

    I'm not a big fan of the original and probably won't watch this one over and over either; but I think the story here (as hand-holding as it is) is much more interesting and flows better than the one from 35 years ago. This movie is a lot more interested in…

    You know the movie in Tropic Thunder they keep making fun of? Simple Jack. This is the type of movie they were making fun of. But it's still sweet and the performances are wonderful.

    Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.

    The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
