'Blade Runner 2049' nearly matches the original film

(10/09/17 3:33pm)

Denis Villeneuve is no rookie when it comes to making movies. With a track record that includes “Enemy,” “Prisoners,” “Sicario” and “Arrival,” I wasn’t worried that he would drop the ball on the sequel to one of my all-time favorite films: “Blade Runner.” In fact, I was ecstatic that Villeneuve had been given creative control over the film instead of Ridley Scott, the director of the original “Blade Runner,” as Scott’s modern films have left audiences disappointed time and time again. Specifically, Scott’s discussion of Blade Runner in an interview where he incoherently expressed his love for "Beevis and Butthead” only served to reinforce my support for Villeneuve being in the director’s chair.
