    Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    ★★★½

    Sollima's version of Sicario does not come with the original's depth and ethical perspective. It is straightforward realistic yet impressive action. People don't talk too much but you assume that almost anybody in this movie is a badass motherfucker (unlike Blunt's character, a major drawback for me in Sicario 1). Sicario II, bleak as it was, it was also tons of fun. Loved the pacing, the acting, the photography, everything about it. It is not gonna go down as a modern classic but paying a ticket to watch it is the definition of a value for money proposition.

    Based on a true story, the Pursuit of Happyness, portrays the road from homelessness to success for Will and Jaden Smith.
    Is it i overly dramatic?
    Sure! But by focusing on the father and son relationship and good performances by the Smith family, the movie makes an interesting viewing.

    I think I could use a drink right now.

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★½

    It is almost impossible to call Villeneuve's "Blade Runner" a bad movie. First of all it accomplishes its major objective: It looks, sounds and feels like a sequel to the original film, which is no small task. , Aesthetically it is just brilliant. So good, it is almost too much of a good thing.
    But is it the masterpiece most people are talking about? Arguably not. "Blade Runner 2049" has no small shoes to fill. And while it tries to…
