Review: Blade Runner 2049

Things were simpler in 2019. If a Replicant went rogue, LAPD would dispatch a specialist-you know the one I’m talking about-to “retire” them. Fast-forward 30 years later, what do you have? A Replicant who specializes in retiring fugitive Replicants at the behest of the LAPD. What has this dystopian society come to?

Denis Villeneuve takes the helm of Blade Runner 2049, picking up 30 years later from where Ridley Scott left his take on Hampton Fancher and Philip K. Dick’s sci-fi cult classic set in dystopian future Los Angeles.

Ryan Gosling stars as the protagonist of this feature simply lettered K. The film starts with K retiring a fugitive replicant who babbles about seeing a miracle almost 30 years ago. The assignment sets off a chain reaction of events that could send the world as humans and Replicants know it into frenzy, because it involves a frightening revelation that is practically game-changing and the human at the center of it: Rick Deckard, the Blade Runner who hasn’t been seen since his last assignment 30 years ago. K must find Deckard and get to the truth before anyone else finds him first, especially the new father of artificial humans Niander Wallace.

Blade Runner 2049 is a breathtaking and thought-provoking spectacle that captivates and doesn’t apologize for it! If you were a fan of the first film, I’m fairly confident that you will be satisfied by where Denis Villeneuve has taken the brainchild of Ridley Scott, Hampton Fancher and Philip K. Dick.

I’m fairly certain that this film will have Denis Villeneuve in the conversation for Best Director at the Academy Awards for this film blends the right amount of 21st Century cinematic visuals with a plot that has a firm hook in its audience and keeps them guessing about the macguffin of the picture, this secret born from an unburied mystery tied to the original Blade Runner himself. Villeneuve is certainly building an outstanding resume as a filmmaker over the past few years and Blade Runner 2049 is up there with some of the best film’s he has done to date.

Credit should go to Hampton Fancher and Michael Green for crafting a compelling screenplay that pays homage to the original film while also propelling the events and characters from the original plot into a new generation for fans to enjoy and wrap their heads around. What I love most about how this story was told is that once you think you have the mystery solved, the film still plays with you with one final suspenseful twist; it’s amazing.

This cast is superb. Ryan Gosling is great, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, David Dastmalchian, Sylvia Hoeks, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Lennie James, Barkhad Abdi and of course Harrison Ford, who is well into his tour of reprising his greatest characters, all deliver performances that spur this picture along into a resounding conclusion.

I would say that the true star of Blade Runner 2049: cinematographer extraordinaire Roger Deakins. The camerawork and visual appeal of this picture is exquisite beyond compare and I’m rooting for him in this year’s Oscar race (fun fact: he hasn’t won an Oscar [yet ;)]).

After Deakins, the score courtesy of Benjamin Wallfisch and one of my all time favorite film composers Hans Zimmer, was sensational. They will get awards recognition for this movie as well, I’m sure of it. Joe Walker’s editing, Dennis Gassner’s production design, the art direction, the set decoration by Alessandra Querzola, the top of the line visual effects and the costume design by¬†Ren√©e April, everything technical about this film was sublime to say the least.

Blade Runner 2049 is an awesome cinematic experience and I firmly believe that leading up to Oscar night 2018, you will hear it’s name called multiple times. Highly encourage to see in theaters right now!

Review: Dunkirk

The man who gave audiences Memento, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, The Prestige and Interstellar returns to take audiences back in time to a small, but not insignificant chapter in the history of World War II.

Nazi Germany has enveloped 400,000 French and British soldiers to the beaches of Dunkirk and the possibility of escape is practically perilous in every direction. Pinned to just one location, the enemy takes their time picking off their forces and destroying whatever hope of escape in their wake. Land, sea and air, the Allied Forces are in a bind, and the British government at the order of Prime Minister Churchill has little alternative but to requisition and commandeer civilian water craft to travel across the channel and bring their boys home.

Christopher Nolan’s take on these accounts is segmented into three perspectives on this account of history. The Mole follows a young French and British soldier navigating the beaches trying to find someway back home; The Sea features a father and son and a friend in their sea vessel crossing the channel upon hearing the order to rescue as many men as they can; The Air follows two fighter pilots soaring through the skies above the madness, shooting down German fighter planes bent on sinking anything that floats. These three perspectives all tie together to illustrate the power of the human instinct of survival. These three perspectives are the crux of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.

Nolan told this story in three parts; I will describe this movie in three words: elegant, explosive and unyielding.

Going into this movie, I was concerned that Nolan’s take on this war story would be too clean and that might hinder its appeal as a war movie when compared to a classic war dramas such as Saving Private Ryan, The Hurt Locker or last year’s Oscar winning Hacksaw Ridge because those movies truly captured the essences of war; the gore, the graphic imagery, the bloodshed, the need to illustrate that war is hell upon seeing it unfold all around the characters for the audiences to witness themselves. Dunkirk was my boom or bust movie of the year and after seeing it, in IMAX which is the way it was intended to be seen, this movie went BOOM! A loud, resonating BOOM upon the senses that did not let up in the slightest!

My concerns going into this movie? Decimated as I watched it unfold before my eyes! Just because Nolan didn’t go excessive on bloodshed, doesn’t mean he hindered this movie; you don’t need blood or grandiose practical effects to illustrate the horrors of war! Every time a bullet fired, I jumped. Every time I saw a bomb go off or a missile or a torpedo down a ship, I was jolted. Every time a dogfight happened in the sky, I held my breath! Every time the situation became more and more dire in these three arcs, the tension just kept building and building and the suspense was as remorseless like the wind and rain in a hurricane! Nolan just brought his strengths as a filmmaker and storyteller to depict a “back against the wall” situation where individuals had to use whatever resources they could to see tomorrow and the need for bodily harm or horror was not necessary in the slightest to accomplish that.

What’s more impressive about Dunkirk is that the enemy’s presence is felt rather than seen. From the first frame, audiences see the little fliers floating from the sky onto the soldiers saying “We surround you!” you don’t see the enemy, but the presence of danger is felt every second and the tension of this film feeds off that tension for strength.

Nolan intended for Dunkirk to be seen as a story of survival and he wrote and executed this core aspect of the picture with extraordinary distinction! The focus of Dunkirk was never about winning, it was about bringing these soldiers home from extreme danger and knowing that in surviving, they were victorious! I had my doubts whether or not he could pull this off but with this powerful script, impeccable execution, the stunning cinematography of Hoyte van Hoytema, the awesome music of Hans Zimmer giving this picture atmosphere where dialogue is scarce, the sound effects, Lee Smith’s editing which came together beautifully as the film went on, Nathan Crowley’s production design, Dunkirk is an outstanding achievement in filmmaking and should become the crown jewel in Christopher Nolan’s body of work so far.

This movie isn’t so much about the actors but what the actors do in the film, in these roles. The collection of Fionn Whitehead, Damien Bonnard, Aneurin Barnard, Barry Keoghan, Mark Rylance, Tom Glynn-Carney, Tom Hardy, Jack Lowden, Kenneth Branagh, James D’Arcy, Cillian Murphy and Harry Styles all do a solid job with the parts they have been given, but the true star of the show is the suspense and the tension that fills up the screen when all of the technical aspects behind the camera come together.

Dunkirk is elegant is how it is shown and heard on screen but the subject matter is brimming with explosive technical execution, resulting in an unyielding cinematic experience that should not be missed! It is the most phenomenal experience I have had this year at the movies!

Review: Hidden Figures

Everyone should know about the Space Race in the 1960s. The time when this country had a competitive rivalry with Russia to determine which global power could break through into the frontier of space travel; history gives us the general idea of what happened and who was involved but the film Hidden Figures peels back the curtain to show audiences who was really involved and instrumental in how America won the Space Race.

In a period racial segregation and gender stereotypes, in a time when the brightest minds of this country aimed to break new grounds in the fields of science and engineering, Katherine Goble, later Katherine G. Johnson, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughn played instrumental roles in how NASA was able to successfully send John Glenn into orbit. Director Theodore Melfi and screenwriter Allison Schroeder do right by honoring these remarkable and fearless women in a film the aptly demonstrates that intelligence, perseverance and grit knows no color or gender in a period that takes too much consideration into both.

I liked Hidden Figures well enough. As a film, it accomplishes what it sets out to do, it doesn’t take any unnecessary risks and it is practically well put together with firm direction, sturdy and noteworthy writing courtesy of Melfi and Schroeder based on Margot Lee Shirley’s book and spearheaded by three very fine performances by Teraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Mon√°e.

I believe this is worth seeing because I believe that the premise of this film is important for its target audience, particularly women and minorities because this movie has a message for those target audiences: that what you have to contribute can’t be taken from you because of who you are or what you look like.

Yet what keeps Hidden Figures out of the “great movie” category and firmly entrenched in the “good movie” category if you know what I mean, is that it just plays too safe; it goes where you would probably expect it to go and it doesn’t exactly take you by surprise. It’s not The Help, where you have that one eyebrow raising moment or a moment that takes your breath away but the effort to be in that company is there.

Again, this is a very solid cast. Henson, Spencer and Mon√°e all shine in the lead roles and the supporting cast of Kevin Costner, Jim Parsons, Kirsten Dunst, Mahershala Ali, Glen Powell, Aldis Hodge, Kimberly Quinn and Lydia Jewett are all solid as well.

Mandy Walker’s cinematography is fair, the editing of Peter Teschner is noteworthy, the score is distinct and credit must be given to the team of Pharrell Williams, Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer, the costumes of Renee Ehrlich Kalfus are appropriate if not striking, the production design of Wynn Thomas is practical; this was a film that is very moderate in its production.

Hidden Figures is a movie that doesn’t break new ground but it keeps its feet firmly on the ground with a message that aims high and that in of itself is as respectable as this movie is.
