Comment By Dr. Loomis

Keep calm! That’s what I keep saying to myself as the days count down to the new Blade Runner film.  Actually I’m slightly conflicted over the upcoming sequel, on one hand I love the Blade Runner universe it looks absolutely fabulous and the original film is on of my all-time favourites.  That said I’m kind of worried they won’t make great film and it needs to be or what was the point?  Why bother!

You can probably deduce from that that I intend to watch Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Harrison Ford alongside Ryan Gosling.

The Mountain Between Us starring Idris Elba & Kate Winslet does little to entice me into going to see it so I won’t.
