This week we get around to Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner
2049, the most expensive arthouse sequel ever! I was suffering
from a sore throat and had no voice after a night out; don’t worry,
I edited out most of the painful coughing I had to deal with. We
try to remember what the Ridley Scott’s original Blade
Runner was about (something something what is humanity), talk
about whether or not Harrison Ford is a replicant (it’s probably
just his character), and trail off to a Dutch play about sex robots
that none of you will know (it was good though). Before I could get
to the issues of ableism surrounding Jared Leto’s role and
behavior, mom brought up the pronunciation of 2049, another hugely
important matter of social relevance. Spike Jonze’s Her
begs to be brought up as well in conversations about artificial
intelligence in films, so we graciously comply. We also briefly
discuss the other three movies we went to see that day: Ruben
Östlund’s The Square (set in Stockholm, we almost guessed
right), Andrea Arnold’s American Honey, and Christopher
This episode’s trailer time showcases Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, prompting us to share our memories of the franchise.
