Episode 18 - Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
< 1 day ago
This week we get around to Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049, the most expensive arthouse sequel ever! I was suffering from a sore throat and had no voice after a night out; don’t worry, I edited out most of the painful coughing I had to deal with.
We try to remember what the Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner was about (something something what is humanity), talk about whether or not Harrison Ford is a replicant (it’s probably just his character), and trail off to a Dutch play about sex robots that none of you will know (it was good though). Before I could get to the issues of ableism surrounding Jared Leto’s role and behavior, mom brought up the pronunciation of 2049, another hugely important matter of social relevance. Spike Jonze’s Her begs to be brought up as well in conversations about artificial intelligence in films, so we graciously comply.
We also briefly discuss the other three movies we went to see that day: Ruben Östlund’s The Square (set in Stockholm, we almost guessed right), Andrea Arnold’s American Honey, and Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. This episode’s trailer time showcases Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, prompting us to share our memories of the franchise.

A delightful series with likeable hosts
Eli and his mother are intriguing people, and their film reviews are only overshadowed by the obvious closeness they share. Even when they disagree philosophically, they approach it civilly with humor and heart. This is a very fun show, and I hope it lasts a long time!
