I’m having a hard time finding a good book to top Ready Player One. I may have found one, but we’ll see.
Until then, I thought I’d switch things up a bit, and talk about Blade Runner 2049.
I’m not familiar with the franchise—well maybe a little bit. But I haven’t watched any of them until now.
It was decent.
The plot was good, and it wasn’t over saturated with special effects.
At first I wasn’t sure as to what was going on, but it steadily gained momentum, and I enjoyed it.
The only issue was the length. It wasn’t short in terms of run time, but I felt like it was still missing something.
It’s Been a While
It’s centered around K the replicant, synthetic humans made to assist humans.
He works as a blade runner, persons who hunt other replicants.
Things take an odd turn when it’s discovered that replicants can reproduce, at least one can—could.
K goes searching for Rick Deckard, retired blade runner, to discover the whereabouts of the replicant child, and the mother’s origin.
The action scenes were great, there weren’t too many casts to drown out the lead, and the acting was top notch.
If synthetic humans were real, I feel that’s exactly how they’d be, emotionless and distant.
But the issue I said I had, was that the movie didn’t feel complete.
Luv, one of the main antagonists died, but Tyrell, the villain, should have at least made an appearance at the end.
I appreciate a nice cliché from time to time.
Everything else was spot on, and I won’t take that away from it.
Movies that make an impact generations later, are some of the best.
Hopefully, I can get back on track with my writing. Inspiration has been limited lately.
There’s enough content, especially in fiction, but it’s not hard to lose your appetite.
