Re: The 2048th sequel to Blade Runner

I don't know if Blade Runner 2049 will be a cult classic one day, but I think it will be remembered at least for being part of Denis Villenueve's career, I can see him being highly acclaimed for years to come.

Re: The 2048th sequel to Blade Runner

I think the length had to do with the box office problems. All the theaters around here only had a ~8 pm showing instead of the standard 7 and 9 showings due to length. This hurts. They try throwing an earlier showing but it tends to be before people are out of work so you don't get many people sho...

Trump is going to be president for the next three years. It sucks, but that's the way it is. The chances of him being impeached are incredibly slim, and the chances of him being removed via the 25th are even slimmer.

I'm talking about rational self-interest, which has nothing to do with optimism or naivete. If saner heads prevail, then they will negotiate in good faith.
