    Aside from the involvement of a ton of people whose work I love, the thing that struck me about 2049 compared to the original is that it is explicit about the nature of its characters' humanity (or lack of). Also that the replicants in this movie seem to have more emotions and a greater need for love and purpose than their human counterparts. Looking forward to seeing this again.

    Wow. Holy shit. That was like Full Metal Jacket: The Musical. J.K. Simmons is electric as a hard-ass Jazz band conductor and, while I didn't like his character, Miles Teller really puts it all out there as his ambitious, young student.

    ★★★½

    Deeply unsettling and not at all what I expected. Stewart carries the movie, whose supporting cast has surprisingly little dialogue. It has a bit of an Under the Skin vibe to it, though not nearly as bizarre.
