Matt Reeves is apparently aiming straight for my heart, because Batman and Nirvana would've been enough for me to fall hard but then there's everything else that goes into this wonderful creation. The Bat-film we needed, whether we deserved it or not.
Director Denis Villeneuve was the one aspect that most solidified my faith in this revelatory sequel to the beloved 1982 Ridley Scott-helmed classic, Blade Runner, and I couldn't be happier that it lived up to - actually, even exceeded - my already extremely high expectations.
