Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 ★★★

I'll be honest, I got bored during parts of this film. Maybe I was too tired to constantly engage with the philosophical and ethical questions for hours on end, maybe it was genuinely a boring movie. In any case, it's the truth; I nodded off more than once.

Barring the distractions of fatigue, the movie caught my interest fairly well. I am pleasantly reminded of similar themes in other movies like Ghost in the Shell, the animation, and, oddly enough, the most recent Tron remake.

I liked it. The people I saw it with, however, did not, and it's quite possible I am being contrary as a Freudian betrayal of my exhaustion of them.

good luck to us all.
