Review: Blade Runner 2049 Takes Itself Very Seriously, Is Far Too Long, And I Still Loved It

4 out of 5 stars.

At a time when we're inundated with a seemingly endless barrage of mediocre sequels and reboots, Blade Runner 2049 felt like an idea doomed to disappoint. Surely, in following up such an iconic, landmark film, it would have to sacrifice something, right? The tone? The giant scope? The philosophical underbelly? A compelling story? As it turns out, the sequel lives up to its predecessor in all these ways and also manages to stand on its own.

More Speculation Whiplash: Did Patty Jenkins Just Confirm She’ll Be Directing Wonder Woman 2?

The will she/won't she of Patty Jenkins' involvement with the inevitable Wonder Woman sequel has been going on for a few weeks now. First, it was definitely happening; then the movie was happening, but Jenkins wasn't attached; then she was maybe writing it? But the way Jenkins is talking now is pretty darn encouraging.

Rob Marshall Calls His Upcoming Mary Poppins Film “an Extension”

In an age of remakes and reboots, sequels and prequels, it's easy to be skeptical about our most beloved properties. We know, for example, that Disney has Rob Marshall directing a new Mary Poppins movie...and it's easy to give it huge amounts of side-eye, because it looks suspiciously like a sequel. Well, Marshall himself is attempting to clarify.

Hollywood Financial Analyst Says Sequels and Remakes Are on Their Way Out

As fans, we've been feeling this for a while now - asking ourselves and each other, "Why can't Hollywood come up with anything new? I'm tired of them rehashing the same-old same-old!"

Sequel Is an Art Show About Those Follow-Up Films We’ll Never See

No sign of Super Mario Bros. 2.

My friends, we are never going to see Natalie Portman as a grown hitwoman taking bloody vengeance on the mafia that failed to protect her mentor and guardian the moment he talked about getting out of the game. We're never going to find out what might have happened if the Goblin King returned decades later. And yes, we're probably never going to see a Hellboy III.

Hopefully Mrs.Featherbottom won't be too threatened.

Great news for '90s babies who were alternatingly charmed and horrified by Robin Williams' memorable role as a divorced Dad with an unconventional way of getting close to his kids.

New Mario Kart 8 Trailer Shows off Anti-Gravity Tracks, Is Basically the Same as Every Mario Kart

Are George Clooney and Sandra Bullock playable, though?

Yes, Mario Kart 8 looks very pretty. Does that really matter, though? Nintendo's entire business strategy for two generations now has been to push a graphically underpowered console that offers something new and different. No matter how many hang gliders, motorcycles, and anti-gravity tracks you throw in, Mario Kart's age is starting to show.

Rumor: Pixar May Be Making A Star Wars Movie

This is not the money mill you're looking for.

Since JJ Abrams confirmed on Monday that Episode VII is a real thing and not just some intricate smokescreen designed to lure grown men out of their mother's basements, we've had a lot of emotions to explore.

Rejoice, Disillusioned White Dudes! Fight Club’s Getting a Graphic Novel Sequel

I am Jack's innate sense of cynicism.

If the Star Wars prequels taught us anything, it's that people love it when their favorite film universes get rebooted with annoying tiny kids in them, right? Of course they do! That's probably why Chuck Palahniuk recently revealed that he'll be returning to his 1996 novel Fight Club to tell the story of Jack and Marla's son -- but from the point of view of Tyler Durden. Yay?
