    Gary Oldman at first glance was unrecognizable as some guy badly done up like Churchill. Then once you recognize who he is , he just looks like Gary Oldman in a fat suit trying to do Churchill but doesn’t look or sound like Churchill. The semi regular character on Doctor Who was a hundred times better.

      Funny how there’s a Churchill industry, lionising this man as the epitome of The British Bulldog, when in reality he rounded up and killed as many as Hitler (GODWINS!!). Millions starved, put in concentration camps, and just outright killed to keep order in the Empire.

      If he’s a hero to people, they need to take a long, hard look at themselves.

    Bit harsh on Blade Runner. Thought Villeneuve did an incredible job – looking forward to his vision for Dune.

    Leto is not a patch on Joe Turkel though.

    I really liked Blade Runner 2049, but it needed some editing. It was too long and some pacier editing really would have helped. It also felt quite a lot less populated (with character and extras) than the first movie which increased the sense of dettachment for the audience maybe. It was interesting to hear what Ridley Scott felt about it.

      It was definitely a half-hour too long, and used misogyny as a set dressing without doing much with it or addressing it. Unlike the original Blade Runner it had some strong female characters, but all relegated to the background when any one of them might have been an interesting protagonist, even poor domed resurrected Rachel. And prioritising angsty main-pain as a sign of growing humanity when murder-replicant’s rage and violence are far more indicative of emergent human emotion seemed to overlook the bleedin’ obvious. I really liked the film, by the way, but its flaws run deep.
