Blade Runner 2049 – Will it win any awards?

Blade Runner 2049.

I wanted to like this movie, and on some level I did. It hit a lot of points in a movie that I like. Likeable actors, intriguing story, and I was entertained. But now that the newness has worn off I find myself going back and asking myself: did I really like this movie? I loved Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, Sylvia Hoeks, and Ana de Armas. Of course it was awesome seeing Harrison Ford come back to this role. But after watching the original again, I just didn’t feel like he was Rick Deckard. Instead it felt like he was Harrison Ford playing Harrison Ford. The big surprise in this movie, for me, came from Dave Bautista. That guy really set the tone for me and I really enjoyed his performance. I definitely underestimated him. The movie is definitely worth a watch and overall I am happy I saw it in the theater. It will be interesting to see if this movie is up for any awards, considering the first one was pretty much ignored in its time.
