Blade Runner 2049 has been met with generally good reviews and smaller than anticipated audiences. Find out why two of the Regular Joes are among those enthusiastic about this long awaited follow up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic, and the third…not so much. Does the film stand on its own, or is it a sequel in the truest sense? Can you recreate a world crafted with old school practical effects in the age of CGI? And, how does 2049’s attempt at digital actor replication compare to other recent examples? While this show, shockingly, contains no discussion of Star Trek Discovery, a commensurate amount of time is given to the most recently announced Star Wars film title. WARNING this episode does contain SPOILERS, particularly if you haven’t heard the next “A Star Wars Story” film is named after a plastic beer cup. All this plus What’s in the Box/Show and Tell. Thanks for listening!
