It’s a super fun show this week for GeekScholars Movie News where the hosts share their thoughts on an animated Ghostbusters movie, Jared Leto being cast as the late Hugh Hefner, and the Fast and Furious spin-off film that will focus on Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson’s characters. After that GeekScholars Chris and Fox present their spoiler-free review of Blade Runner 2049!
Hello, my name is Michelle Alexandria, I hate Blade Runner. I know I’m alone on my island, it’s peaceful here. Despite numerous attempts, I’ve never been able to make it past the first 40 minutes so I promised myself to watch it fully before seeing Blade Runner 2049. I wanted to fully understand it’s tedious “plot” before going into the sequel. Turns out I really didn’t need to subject myself to that because this movie is everything that’s wrong with sequels – it is almost an exact clone of the first movie. From the look to the plot, the movie is both hamstrung and “covered” by its adherence to its past. If you liked or loved the first one, then you will feel exactly the same about this one.
