Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 ★★★★

This was the most beautifully photographed film I've ever seen in my entire life.

Also it was perfectly paced, making a near three hour runtime scream by as it doled out questions and answers and more questions at an even keel throughout.

Unfortunately by the end, I had more answers that questions, both narratively and symbolically, which would be fine were the movie not called Blade Runner. And a few characters and stories from the original leave this film grately diminished. Not as drastically as Alien: Covenant, but enough that it nagged at me.
