Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049 (2017) *The New Masterpiece Tops The Old*

Ryan Gosling and Ana de Armas in Blade Runner 2049
Despite not being a fan of the original Blade Runner, I completely acknowledge its importance to science fiction film making.  It’s undoubtedly a seminal work in the genre.  Blade Runner 2049 surpasses it on every level.  It is the rare sequel to a seemingly standalone film that takes everything good about the film and enhance its predecessor while simultaneously telling a better directed, better written, better acted, and visually superior installment.  Blade Runner 2049 isn’t just another Denis Villenueve masterpiece; it’s arguably the best film of 2017.

Blade Runner 2049 Trailer #3 “The Future of the Species is Finally Unearthed”

I have never tried so hard to like a movie in my life and failed as I have with Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. I have watched it FIVE times, and every time I walk away thinking it’s boring dreck. HOWEVER, I have loved every trailer I’ve seen for Blade Runner 2049, every still, every shot, every line. I think it’s awesome that Harrison Ford in the last years of his career is revisiting his legacy characters and giving them glory moments, and the audience a reminder of why he’s the one of the greatest actors of his generation: the everyman, instantly relatable and always entertaining. Director Denis Villeneuve has never disappointed me, and I don’t think he’s about to start here. For a full synopsis, read below.

Robin Wright’s 10 Best Movies

Robin Wright
Robin Wright has a stellar resume of quality films stretching from 1987’s The Princess Bride to 2017’s Wonder Woman.  Stellar roles have kept coming her way because she, along with Kevin Spacey, brought their star power to Netflix and House of Cards.  The series’ resultant success has made quality TV roles vehicles for actresses to continue to showcase their talent past Hollywood’s ageist bias against experienced actresses.  She’s created memorable characters, been an anchor in any ensemble she’s entered, and even managed to stay married to Sean Penn to an improbably long amount of time clearly demonstrating some kind of supernatural patience.

Movie Review: Wonder Woman (2017) *DC Makes Something Absolutely….Wonderful*

Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot

Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman.  Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman.  Patty Jenkins’ 2017 Wonder Woman.  DC’s trinity of chief superheroes all now finally have a film that will define them forever.  That’s not overstatement or hyperbole.  I’ve been skeptical about the DC Extended Universe of films, though hopeful at recent developments.  I honestly didn’t know what to expect from Wonder Woman going into the theater.  I’ve read a lot of comics, and there’s the Lynda Carter TV show, but if you asked me yesterday I couldn’t have picked out a defining Wonder Woman story and said THIS is the character.  I can now.  Wonder Woman is one of the best (if not THE best) films of 2017, one of the best comic book movies ever made, and the best ANYTHING Wonder Woman ever written or filmed.  It’s.  That.  Good.
