Hi Em­pire, I’ve re­cently got­ten home from the cin­ema af­ter hav­ing watched Blade Run­ner 2049, and all I can say is WOW!!! Even though the run­ning time was close to three hours, I was riv­eted the en­tire time. The vi­su­als were noth­ing short of breath­tak­ing through­out (If DOP Roger Deakins doesn’t take home an Academy Award, I’m boy­cotting the Os­cars forever­more), the cast were uni­formly great (Ryan Gosling was bril­liant, Sylvia Hoeks was straight-up ter­ri­fy­ing and Har­ri­son Ford has put in one of the strong­est per­for­mances of his ca­reer) and the story was chock full of won­der­ful twists and sur­prises. So the big ques­tion is: why isn’t any­one go­ing to see it?! In my opin­ion, it equals — and in some ways bet­ters — the orig­i­nal.

JULES M, VIA EMAIL We’re with you, Jules! We think the film is ter­rific and should make ALL the money. Peo­ple, eh?
