TNTM: Blade Runner 2049 review

Blade Runner 2049 is set 30 years after the original movie. It is a sequel to the original and a few of the characters from the original are mentioned and/or seen. It recaptures the gritty noir feeling of the original.

The story also makes you answer the hard questions concerning artificial intelligence, souls, and morality.

****Spoilers may follow *****

Blade Runner 2049 is centered around a bio-engineered human (replicant) named K. Replicants have been integrated into society as servants/slaves. K works as a “blade runner” for the LAPD. His job is to hunt down and retire rogue replicants.

During one of K’s investigations a buried box containing the remains of a once pregnant female replicant is found. The rest of the movie is focused on his search for the child of the pregnant replicant.

Jack thinks Blade Runner 2049 is one of the best science fiction movies he has seen in some time. I on the other hand felt indifferent towards the movie. I recommend any fan of the original Blade Runner movie to see this sequel. I do not hate the movie, but I won’t be buying the Bluray when it comes out.

Blade Runner sequel will star Harrison Ford

Jack and Troy discuss the 1982 version of Blade Runner and the upcoming sequel.

Blade Runner is a 1982 American neo-noir science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos.

The screenplay, written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples is a modified film adaptation of the 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

The film depicts a dystopian Los Angeles in which genetically engineered replicants, which are visually indistinguishable from adult humans, are manufactured by the powerful Tyrell Corporation.

The use of replicants on Earth is banned and they are exclusively utilized for dangerous or menial work on off-world colonies. Replicants who defy the ban and return to Earth are hunted down and killed (“retired”) by special police operatives known as “Blade Runners”.

The plot focuses on a group of recently escaped replicants hiding in L.A. and the burnt-out expert Blade Runner, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who reluctantly agrees to take on one more assignment to hunt them down.

Blade Runner initially polarized critics. Some were displeased with the pacing, while others enjoyed its thematic complexity.

The film under performed in North American theaters but has since become a cult film. Hailed for its production design, depicting a “retrofitted” future, it remains a leading example of the neo-noir genre.

It brought the work of Philip K. Dick to the attention of Hollywood and several later films were based on his work. Ridley Scott regards Blade Runner as “probably” his most complete and personal film.

In 1993, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

Blade Runner is now regarded by many critics as one of the best science fiction films ever made.

Seven versions of the film have been shown for various markets as a result of controversial changes made by film executives. A Director’s Cut was released in 1992 after a strong response to work print screenings. This, in conjunction with its popularity as a video rental, made it one of the first films released on DVD.

In 2007, Warner Bros. released The Final Cut, a 25th anniversary digitally remastered version which is the only one on which Scott had complete artistic freedom and was shown in selected theaters and subsequently released on DVD, HD DVD, and Blu-ray.
