BLADE RUNNER 2049

Blade Runner 2049 is a sequel to a groundbreaking, legendary, sci-fi epic film that interprets innovative worlds of the interconnected weaving of man, machines, and the vastness of space and time. The film was an ambitious attempt to replicate the original (Blade Runner). But I doubt that people grasp the understanding behind the effort and genius it takes to pull off a film like this. Also, those most benefiting from this experience would most likely be Gen Xers, serious film connoisseurs, or sci-fi fans because the first film was made in 1982.

BATTLE OF THE SEXES

I often wondered what all the hubbub was about concerning Battle of the Sexes. This film is a great introduction to history, while explaining the importance of a new era of women’s civil rights in sports as well as off the court. Often the best stories are derived from real events and tell a more intriguing perspective.
