Fan­tas­tic fol­low-up

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE TICKET -

Blade Run­ner 2049 (15)

De­nis Vil­leneuve has man­aged to cre­ate that rarest of beasts; a se­quel that sur­passes its pre­de­ces­sor.

Ryan Gosling shines in a chal­leng­ing role, Sylvia Hoeks makes for a chill­ing vil­lain­ess and a re­turn­ing Har­ri­son Ford adds old-school charisma.

The film looks and sounds fan­tas­tic but, cru­cially, also de­liv­ers plen­ti­ful emo­tional beats.

Bat­man: Gotham by Gaslight (15)

The Caped Cru­sader tak­ing on Jack the Rip­per is one heck of an in­trigu­ing sto­ry­line that, for the most part, leads to an en­ter­tain­ing watch.

See­ing Bat­man in 19th cen­tury Gotham is fas­ci­nat­ing and Bruce Green­wood voices the hero with pathos. But this an­i­ma­tion’s story strug­gles to fill even its slight 78-minute run­ning time.
