EPISODE 24 RECAP | This Week: Your hosts Audy and Elvin are joined by their friend and fellow movie lover Warren James to review the long awaited BladeRunner 2049. The film starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Jared Leto and Robin Wright is the 30 year old follow up film from the Ridley Scott 1982 sci-fi noir cult classic Blade Runner. The fellas really dive into things by starting off with a Non spoiler review which all three guys agree that this is technically impressive film led by strong direction by Denis Villaneuve and frequent collaborator cinematographer Roger Deakins but still felt collectively that the film came up short in a lot of other areas. Then they discuss Blade Runner 2049 underperformance in the box office. Next they do the spoiler review where they unpack a lot, and we do mean A LOT of the puzzling aspects of the film with its intended ambiguous and mysterious narrative. Lastly, Audy, Elvin and Warren ask the unanswered questions left at the end of the film and where the movie's franchise's next move in the story will go.DOWNLOAD HERE.
