Diehard fans waited more than 30 years for it, and now it’s here: the sequel to Blade Runner, Blade Runner 2049, a long, thoughtful, gorgeous film that both nods to and exceeds the original. Director Denis Villeneuve’s film is challenging, thoughtful and ambitious, but it’s also far from perfect. We dig into it (and there’s plenty to dig into).
Also, we look at the plane-crash romance The Mountain Between Us and the much-praised indie The Florida Project. Then, in our Reboot segment, we look back to 1988 and the beloved teenage classic Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Whoa.
