blade runner 2049 review

Blade Runner 2049


When the Star Wars prequel was heard , it would be about two years old. I could not understand by then what the fans (and the general public) might have felt about such news, but I felt it would be something like what I felt when I first heard the name iptorrents "Blade Runner 2049" : joy, excitement and , of course, fear. Fear because loving does not always mean doing good to what you appreciate, fear because, sometimes, loving can be more selfish than altruistic. Paul WS Anderson claims that the key to Resident Evil films is his love of the saga , but that does not imply knowing what makes it unique. Returning to Star Wars, a name does not guarantee success even if you walk the long mile to offer something different. Lucas wanted to expand his universe and, in the process, mutated its essence by turning a futuristic western with medieval knights into a second-class political thriller . Loving, though indispensable, is never enough, and less so if nostalgia motivates your actions, but very occasionally occur "miracles", small flashes of light in a sea of darkness. And one of them is called Blade Runner 2049.



The first frame of the film is the first plane of an eye. One might already think that what comes next is a nostalgic rehash as Trainspotting 2 , but then the scene shows something completely different. Anyone could assume that the presence of Harrison Ford does not go beyond the fan service , to go to the easy, but if before talked about love, now I speak of respect. This is something that everyone has already said: Dennis Villeneuve understands that he was and is Blade Runner, and unlike so many others, goes to the essence of the original work, to the concepts that define it, and internalize its universeinstead of just copying names from here and there. The references to the past are just to make you see that we are in the same place but in another time and the role of Deckart in the film links with his speech, without neglecting the affection and nostalgia.



 But let's get back to the Blade Runner universe . If the original film gave small brushstrokes of its world (center Los Angeles in particular), the Canadian broadens the radar to other zones and does not spare in expenses or time to recreate in the experience sublime so characteristic of the science fiction , which for endless research work. The key, however, is that our director understands the values of silence and subtlety. Moreover, considering his filmography, he is the ideal filmmaker for this work and does not have to go very far: in The arrivalthere is that ip torrents transcendental tone characteristic of Dick's work and of classic science fiction; his preciousness for the image, his wonderful visual narration Compare the first bars of Sicario with the beginning of Blade Runner 2049 and you will know what I mean.

It may be the fault of the excessively slow pace of the play, especially in the early stages, where it can become somewhat redundant. Perhaps because of this I feel that the message is diluted more than normal, but at the end of the day, the great virtues of this work clear the clouds of my mind. Blade Runner 2049 takes advantage of its condition of reboot sequel , in an almost metafiction exercise, to reflect on the past and the memories . This is what I ask of the return of the classics: respect and love for their predecessor, to know that they intended more than to absorb without a lore that is not understood. I am glad to see that, to this day, my skepticism can be cured at last.


Blade Runner 2049 [2017] Movie

Blade Runner 2049 [2017] is a 2017 science fiction film and is the sequel to the 1982 Ridley Scott film Blade Runner(at least, one or more of its five official versions).  The colossal task of directing this follow-up falls to Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), while Ridley Scott produces on a screenplay penned by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green. The movies123 free stars Ryan Gosling as Agent K (the titular Blade Runner), Harrison Ford as the returning Rick Deckard, Jared Leto as the enigmatic Niander Wallace, and Ana de Armas as Joi. The cast is rounded out by Robin Wright (The Princess Bride, House of Cards), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Mackenzie Davis (The Martian, Black Mirror), Lennie James (The Walking Dead), Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), and Carla Juri (Wetlands).



Rising is single word for it. In this present reality where Star Trek has turned into an activity establishment and resilience for systematically paced sci-fi has apparently achieved an unsurpassed low, Blade Runner 2049 is nothing not as much as a present; gave to a crowd of people that could conceivably be thankful to acknowledge, similar to a youthful kid who unwraps another combine of socks on Christmas morning. "It's awesome, Mom." But that swarming felt that it could've been another computer game waits culpably on the inner voice. For some, be that as it may, Blade Runner 2049 might be precisely what you've been sitting tight for. It tries to achieve the impossible and, in almost every regard, rises effortlessly.



35 years later (30 in-universe), we extend an eager if uneasy second gaze into the sleazy declension of whatever Los Angeles has become.  True to the original film (or at least the aptly color-corrected Final Cut), legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins not only manages to frame the dark mise en scene and low-key contrasts that were so prominent in the film’s predecessor, but lends an entirely new perspective to fresh settings that feel no less true to the universe of Blade Runner.  Against the weathered neon cesspit that is Los Angeles, a cool grey, but no less grim, isolationism litters the junkyards of San Diego; and in Las Vegas, a hellish yet erotic romanticism extends across its orange wastelands.  In this dauntingly epic sequel, I walked away feeling profoundly blown away by some of the best cinematography ever put to film, and immensely satisfied with the expansion of the story.



It remains to be seen if 2049 is the self-contained sequel it presents itself to be or if Hollywood is banking on franchise potential.  If the film’s disappointing box office earnings thus far are any indicator, perhaps this epic is destined, for better or worse, to be the end.  Like Villeneuve’s previous film Arrival, this film reaches back to a different era of science fiction.  Unfortunately, this immensely beautiful piece of filmmaking may not be what general filmgoers are looking for.  Is that a shame?  In a word, yes. My only hope is that more films like Blade Runner 2049 can continue to be made in today’s world… and perhaps a more meditative form of sci-fi movies will reign supreme again someday.  For my part, and I’m sure it’s not an empty room I proclaim this to, this is one of the finest sequels ever made and one of the best sci-fi films of all time.
