Update: this fudge has to be seen to be believed.

Kingsman 2 wasn't as tight as the first but still a lot of fun. mother might end up being my fave of the year.

American Made is surprisingly good. Tom Cruise is awesome in it.

Blade Runner 2049 was excellent. Brilliant production and sound design. Loved how they continued from the original but expanded the world building. A very satisfying experience.

^ Gotta check the Gos out.

Saw Columbus and Beach Rats, recently. One contains one good performer (Haley Lu Richardson), the other one includes all-around good performances, especially Harris Dickinson. One has amazing architecture all around, the other one has creative shots and beautiful photography. Both very slow burners. Easily forgettable themes and screenplays. Sad state of the film industry if that has to be said about independent films in 2017.

... gotta check out the Gos, soon.

Blade Runner 2049 really delivers.

Gorgeous film, strong narrative and a nice expansion on the universe. No character/actor felt particularly wasted and even Leto being Leto was kept well balanced.

I got to see a screening of Brawl in Cell Block 99 last week. If you are a fan of the pacing and tone of Bone Tomahawk (slow burn punctuated by moments of total brutality) mixed with a sometimes exploitation-y vibe, this would be right up your alley. I loved it and Vince Vaughn totally nails the role; It was great seeing him in another non-comedic part.

Saw it at Fantastic Fest and loved it. Brutal film and VV is a badass.

If my wife has yet to see the original Blade Runner will the new one be confusing for her? She wants to see it with me, because she has some sort of weird crush on Leto.

Was asked this this morning. There will be some stuff she'll probably ask about, but I don't know that not seeing it would ruin the new one completely

Hmmmm. Personally I think it's essential to appreciate this one.

But you could get away without it.

I missed Baby Driver in the theaters. I saw the steelbook release for it, as I collect steelbooks so I was wondering if it is worth a blind buy
