Blade Runner 2049: A film that replicated the original and more!

Blade Runner 2047 follows on from the 1982 original, directed by Steven Spielberg. The films cast includes the han-some Harrison ford and Jazzy Ryan Gosling, along with others. The film is still in cinemas now if you decide to read this WITHOUT seeing it first. There will be spoilers, but if that’s what you makes you see the film, than my job is done.

The Plot

The plot (in short) followed a world in which human life was revolutionised. It was Blade Runners (played by Ryan Gosling) job to track down “replicants” (scientifically engineered humans) who had gone over their termination date. Older versions that had been replaced, by faster, stronger models that were no longer fit to serve in society.  There was a little deviation in the plot where Blade Runner to have his own adventure. It was emotional and insightful and without this, the plot would have been too “busy”.

We saw Blade Runner (Ryan Gosling) bloody and injured through out the film – mostly from being attacked by the older resistant models. He was pretty good in his role as Blade Runner – very fast and violent, yet oddly likeable and trusting. I would not normally put these together, but on this occasion it worked.

I especially liked the scene when Blade Runner met Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford). A stand off of wits and aim. And despite their differences, they still agreed to make up over an drink of Whisky. A great idea!

This version of the world was amazing though: humans were scientifically engineered, but they looked like any other humans. Houses were so kitted out that you could have a virtual wife hollogram where ever you went and memories seemed so real, despite not being your own. I do have some trouble imagining what this world would be like in 2049, I don’t see flying cars any time soon.

I would not describe it as an action movie per say. It was slow and very futuristic.  It was quiet in the monologue, then all of a sudden, it was fast and intense and exciting. This of course may not appeal to everyone. Like some people, I have a tendency to get bored during a slow film, unless something really catches my eye. Despite the mix of two completely different genres, I found that I before I could get bored, they was a scene of loud music or action and I was engaged again.

I understood it despite not seeing the Blade Runner recently. The way the plot was interesting to those who were familiar with the original AND basic enough for new fans. It is a very hard balance to get!

Star Rating

For me the movie was good. I enjoyed it and would see it again! I think it is worthy of 4 stars!



Thats it from me…

The finale series that had us glued to the screens! (Spoiler alert)

We had a lot of great telly this week with thrillers like the finale of Liar. We also said adu to the complicated but truly worth it, Rellik finale!

Liar (Finale on Monday 16th October 2017 BBC1)

The psychological thriller had lots going for it, and the built up was mounting, so much that the evidence was stacked against Andrew. Our opinion of Andrew as a character had become sour as the series went on, as more and more was revealed about his psychotic nature. The bluffing eventually got too real for Andrew! We just wanted him to go down for what he did, but instead the closing scenes panned onto a dead silhouette amongst the marshes.

His death was a surprise to all of us, but maybe for Laura it wasn’t. I wondered what really went on – if she had got to him and wanted to end it once and for all.

This series was engaging and has potential for a second. After all, what really happened to Andrew? Suicide or covered up murder?

Series star rating: 4 stars!


Rellik (Finale on Monday 16th October 2017 ITV1)

The summary at the start was there to help us, but in all honesty, it just showed us how much we had forgotten. It was like watching a show on X4 or X8 and not following anything.

The plot took a dramatic turn in last weeks episode, in which we saw Elaine (aka Helena Parides) kill the Dr Jonas Borner in his car. She later attacked Dr Isaac Taylor after revealing such a haunting revelation that made us think differently about her whole character and intentions.

The series took its time to build, and lost many viewers in the process, but trust me when I say, that the finale not only pulled it all together, but it also had you hooked on every word and scene. And all of a sudden hell is breaking loose and you don’t know where to look. Blood, car chases, gun shots and fire all in one episode. Brilliant! 

The episode, mostly focusing on Elaine and Gabrielle, ended with a little hope, but we are still not certain. Will Elaine return or it the hell over for him in series 2?

What a way to finish a series, which a first was so confusing! I had the time and patience to watch these episodes, and relished in the challenge of decoding it.

I liked the way the plot all linked in by the end.

Series star rating: 3 stars

What went down in Rellik and Liar on BBC and ITV1 this week!

A summary of some of the series that we took the pleasure of watching this week. 

Liar (Episode 5, Monday 9th October 2017)

It was a dramatic episode. We had a worried police officer who was spiked and sexually abused in her home, a big over reaction about Laura’s sisters affair with her colleague Tom and more evidence of Andrew’s sick truths hidden away in a wooden shed.

We also saw a more authoritative side to Laura. She put herself in such danger, only for it to backfire in his favour. Tense scenes of rookie mistakes – running backwards in such an isolated boat harbour – the flaws were just too much for her to pull it off.

A episode of nail biting and agonising silences. Twists and turns in all directions, so who really knows? Maybe next week the truth about Andrew will no longer be relevant.

Star Rating: 4 stars


 Rellik (Episode 5, Monday 9th October 2017)

So this week’s episode had its usual and highly complicated plot. I know that many people have given up on the series because it is too much to take in however we are starting to understand a little bit more about these murders.

In this episode, we were able to paint a clearer picture on Gabriel’s character, who before his awful acid ordeal was a catch for the ladies. His unethical views of marriage  and the meaning of commitment was very worrying.

For anyone who has not seen Rellik, you may want to watch it before you read this very disturbing spoiler.

Liar, Rellik and Dr Forster: The dramas that unfolded this week!

A series round up once again. We close the curtains on Dr Forster! You have made our Tuesday nights entertaining, but we bid you farewell! See you for series 3 (hopefully)…

Liar cover

Liar (episode 4 on Monday 2nd October):

This episode showed us bits and pieces – unnerving things about previous occurrences. Little snippets that made us hate Andrew.

I am not sure about Andrew. He puts his nice face on at work, but is out of control when he is off shift. Breaking into houses, planting evidence, drugging a female police officer… a side to a surgeon that you don’t ever want to be see and hope is true! His audacity to sue her over ruining his reputation shows how he feels he has gotten away with it.

I liked the little potential love story in it between Laura and the man she met at the hotel – that you may be able to recover from something horrifying and abusive. It gives women  (and men, sadly) some hope that it will get better.

Star Rating: 4 stars!



Rellik Killer seies

Rellik (episode 4 on Monday 2nd October):

If you are still watching Rellik, then I applaud you! It takes time to get your head around it, but you are half way. Two more episodes then you can give your brain a rest!

I have been waiting to see what he looked like before the attack and we eventually did. He looked normal, relaxed and calm and he is so different now. He is now dysfunctional, scary and revenge hungry and I don’t blame him!

An episode that is still losing its popularity compared to Lair, its rival show on ITV.

A backwards plot that leaves fans answering their own questions by the end of the episode, taking away any suspense and excitement that watchers expect when watching a “thriller”.

Star Rating; 3 stars!

Dr Forster s2

Dr Forster (episode finale on Tuesday 3rd October):

An episode that in my opinion went a little bit too far. A plot concerning two parents , in a rut, with a child in the middle – confused and sad. You could see it throughout the episode – the pain of not having a family that stands by one another and what it does to you.

There were moments where I thought she could “finish him off early”. She had an opportunity to hit him with her car and even gave him drugs to let him do it himself. But even with her hard cased character, she still loved him. The thought of him doing harm would be too much to bear and haunt her.

The episode was so dramatically farfetched, that it left us all broken with an outcome that every parent would dread. A moment where everything you fort over is gone. Yes, I thought Tom was hit by the car where he had watched his dad give up. I don’t know if him leaving was any better – at least you would know where he is and he was happy, you know?

A series that has come to a sad end, but has potential for a third – maybe Simon will get his life together or Tom will turn up. We hope so.

A series well worth your time!

Series Star Rating: 4 stars
