    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

    I was a little worried that the home viewing experience may take away some of the magic that the theater/IMAX experiences gave me, but luckily I was wrong. Sure, it's ideal to see and hear it on a massive screen with a huge soundsystem, but it still works in a home setting.
