    Saw Blade Runner 2049 on Monday and loved it. :)

    Visually it's sumptuous, a really immersive experience, and very much in the style of the original. The camera lingers to let you soak in the sets; the composition of shots, the sets themselves, everything creates the same detailed, believable world, just one that has moved on a little.

    The plot continues from the original, developing without damaging it, and explores similar themes while expanding them to new areas.

    Downsides? I thought the score occasionally drifted into Vangelis pastiche, and I found the villain a rather unconvincing cartoon, rather than the amoral but understandable Tyrell from the original.

    There seemed to be a few loose ends to me, but I'd like to see it again to be sure, as at 2 hours 43 minutes there's a lot to take in.

    Was just discussing this one in the office with a work colleague the other day, and they suggested the need for a remake...

    ...so, after refraining myself from giving him the honourable death brought on by a 1000 paper cuts, I offered that a sequel would definitely be welcome - Oh to see Jack Burton, and the old Pork chop express back in action again.

    It came in the form of a comic book series a year or so ago. It wasn't very well written.

    'Big Trouble...' is one of my favourite movies from the 80's (along with 'Ghostbusters'), but MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN, the comicbook just sucked.
