Blade Runner 2049. Film Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Edward James Olmos, Jared Leto, Mackenzie Davis, Lennie James, Barkhad Abdi, Sean Young, Loren Peta.

The dystopian feel of our lives is always there, humming in the back ground, playing that sad song of regret whilst understanding it is our own folly that has bought us to such junctures in time. It is a genre of writing that has existed perfectly well and in many ways is arguably more suited to our own thoughts of humanity’s future than the clean, sanitised and off kilter imagination of many science-fiction films; for even they soon revert to the realisation that not all is good where humanity treads, even in space.

Take the worst of the worst, the real depths of humanity’s struggle with itself and watch the fur fly, the angst become riddled with pain, glory and sabotage and you have the comic book film of the summer, Suicide Squad. A film that carries on the expanding D.C. universe and which at the back of its mind arguably sees it wanting to desperately take on Marvel at its own game.

The Dallas Buyers Club, Film Review. FACT Cinema, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto, Steve Zahn, Dallas Roberts, Michael O’Neil, Denis O’Hare, Griffin Dune, John Tabler, Jane McNeill, James DuMont, Bradford Cox, Kevin Rankin, Lawrence Turner, Matthew Thompson, Adam Dunn, Ian Cassleberry.

A lot has been made of the fact that actor Matthew McConaughey lost an incredible amount of weight to portray foul mouthed, bull riding cowboy, AIDS sufferer Ron Woodruff in the film The Dallas Buyers Club that it almost seems to have detracted from the real point of an exceptionally made film. The redemption of a man from completely unlikeable, homophobic and intolerant person at the start to somebody you would be able to sit down and have a conversation with without wanting to take to task.
