BLADE RUNNER 2049 | Moustache Trailer Reaction



We have another trailer for Blade Runner 2049. Once again it's filled with interesting characters, absolutely stunning visuals and a lot of mystery. As much as we get to see more of the world first seen 35 years ago, and a lot of work has been done to authentically recreate this dystopian Los Angeles, once again we are left with more questions than answers!


Front and centre is Ryan Gosling's 'K' and his investigation, what he's investigating we don't know. It involves his search for Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who - for some reason - has been on the run for 30 years. This search may or may not be the reason K crosses path with Dave Bautista, an encounter that results in a broken wall. One person who's not happy with what K is doing is his boss, played by Robin Wright, she's convinced that his actions could start a war. But how does Joi (Ana De Armas) figure into things? Is she K's connection to the Tyrell Corporation or just someone caught up in whatever's going on?


As I said, Deckard has been on the run for 30 years. What's he running from? What happened to Rachael? And does the fact that he's still alive finally answer the question of whether he's human or replicant? No doubt that last one will be left open to viewer interpretation.


What are Neander Wallace (a sort of Jokery sounding Jared Leto) and the Tyrell Corporation up to. Is it possible they're the reason Deckard has been in hiding. "I had the lock, and he has the key." A sentence uttered by Wallace during the trailer, who is he referring to? And will that "key" unlock Wallace's ability to create a new generation of replicant? He's definitely coming across as the big bad of the movie, but is that just a decoy at this point?


I told you there were more questions than answers. One thing that I can say without any hesitation is that Blade Runner 2049 looks more amazing with every trailer we see! Will it live up to the hype? Well we'll have to wait and see, but with a 6th October release date we don't have long to wait.
  

One final clue left in the trailer is what I'm assuming is a date carved in wood. What it means is anyone's guess. But given it's roughly 2 years after the events of Blade Runner, is it a bread crumb left behind by Deckard or Rachael? What do you think?

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 



In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

Anthropoid: Average Guy Movie Review

On the 27th May 1942, Jozef Gabcik (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubis (Jamie Dornan) put into effect their plan to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich. Heydrich was the architect of the Final Solution, third highest ranking Nazi and head of German forces in occupied Czechoslovakia. Gabcik and Kubis were Czechoslovak agents working for the government in exile. 'Anthropoid', which means "resembling a human being in form" was the operation's codename. It's interesting to note that the agents were trained by British Intelligence. One of the men responsible for training them was Sir Christopher Lee.



The movie begins with the two agents parachuting into Czechoslovakia and covers the entire operation, including the bloody aftermath in which 15,000 Czecholslovaks were killed. Anthropoid has been praised for it's historical accuracy. Shot entirely in Prague, many of the real locations were used.The assassination scene plays out in real time, accurately depicting the movement…
