    Old

    ★★★½

    Old. Directed by M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village, The Happening). On a tropical getaway, a group of people find themselves rapidly aging on a hidden beach, that they can't escape from.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Blade Runner 2049. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario, Enemy, Arrival), follows the story of a new blade runner, Officer K, as he unearths a secret that sends him on a journey to find Deckard, the old blade runner from the original film. I don’t want to bring up more of the plot because the plot is literally a spoiler and this film is best experienced when not knowing anything else at all.

    Going in I had HUGE expectations. The…
