Blade Runner 2049: Dystopia With a Happy Ending – Maybe

Blade Runner 2049 is still in the theaters and has a rotten tomatoes score of 88%. While long, it’s definitely worth seeing on the big screen. If you have never seen the original, please see it before you go. And, if you haven’t seen the original in the past six months, please-please-please watch it again…
