Blade Runner 2049: Film Review

With sequels, there is always that concern about whether the second instalment with tarnish the reputation of the first, especially one so well-loved as Blade Runner. It was certainly a risk with Blade Runner 2049, which comes 35 years after the original, but luckily they have waited that long to make sure they have created something that is loyal to its predecessor and builds upon its success. No easy feat.

Looking back over the past year, there have been some pretty damn good films. But I still had trouble picking my top ten – finding the first six was easy, but the remaining four were not as convincing. So many films I liked at the time, but over the passing months have left little impression. I finally managed to bring you my annual list, which is presented in no particular order.

The hype surrounding Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens has been insane and the original franchise is so well loved that making a worthy new edition was always going to be a challenge, but you can all breathe a sigh of relief because J.J. Abrams has done the franchise justice and has made a loyal film that should please avid fans.

Now I’m sure you’ve all seen the overnight pictures from the insane Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens Los Angeles premiere. What a production!

Top Films for December

dec1

Another month, another upcoming preview! It seems most releases have done the sensible thing and steered clear of December and the super anticipated release of Stars Wars – The Force Awakens. Of the films on offer, there are some dreadful-looking comedies and the critically panned Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie outing By The Sea – so there isn’t much I want to see. Here are the picks that scrape by:

Comic-Con highlights: Suicide Squad, Batman V Superman, Deadpool & Star Wars

con1

This weekend in film news is ALL about the San Diego Comic Con because so many panels have been held to promote TV shows and movies, and it is pretty hard to keep up with all the news. Basically, for me, the biggest news is the latest trailers for the upcoming superhero films Suicide Squad, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Deadpool. And while it has no new trailer, I was so psyched about the Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens panel that I simply need to talk about it.
