Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

Director: Denis Villeneuve. Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Dave Bautista, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Hiam Abbass, Barkhad Abdi, Edward James Olmos, Sean Young. 163 min. Rated R. USA/UK/Canada. Sci-fi/Thriller.

Okay, too much to say, so just bullet points:

1. Materializes the original's mood by replicating its moments, but with renewed identity;
2. Impossibly provides new depth to and expands upon the original's plot points;
3. Villeneuve goes back to his Incendies 1+1=1 roots;
4. Reminds of Her: "GCAT .... or 1 and 0?", "Love ... or mathematical precision?";
5. Snow replaces rain for 'tears in rain';
6. Heart-melting Edward James Olmos cameo and Sean Young flashback;
7. Thirteen-time nominee Roger Deakins will finally win his Oscar;
8. Hans Zimmer fascinates again, while respecting Vangelis' masterpiece;
9. Worth every second of its 160 minutes.
10. To be marked as one of the greatest sci-fis of the 21st century.
