Ok, a bit early but better late than never today.
Time to start the (semi) reviews of #blackpanther
#ReadyPlayerOne #PacificRimUprising and #Bladerunner2
First off, I will always love the first #BladeRunner always.
It put a lot of things in perspective...and had callouts to culture etc, etc.
The second movie was hurt immensely by the lack of new stuff Japan did over the last 30 years.
You cant say the same for #ReadyPlayerOneMovie
As a movie with a feel and a look #ReadyPlayerOneMovie is leagues better than #BladeRunner2049. This was the big mistake of the latter movie because even if it was more coherent than the former, its look and references were lacking killing the vibe.

Storytellers need to finally start taking responsibility for the world they are inventing. #BladeRunner2049 #GhostInTheShell2017
We aren’t just doing movies, games, TV, VR. W SciFi narratives, we are creating cultural visions of the future that will bleed into reality
This shit becomes real. Look at Minority Report’s surveillance state dystopia. Ohh cool, you have world-built that?!?

Oh joy. I see #BladeRunner2049 has kicked off another round of “it’s not misogynistic! It’s COMMENTING on misogyny!”
Say it with me, kids: much like satire, commentary via depiction requires specificity of intent & execution, otherwise it’s just reification
If you think #BR2049 is commenting on misogyny, then what is it saying about it? Depiction isn’t criticism, any more than it is endorsement.

1. No one‘s saying it but while #BladeRunner2049 is beautiful, interesting & richly realized, the reasons it is failing are abundantly clear
2. First, it’s hugely self-indulgent. As an iconic white male director, Ridley Scott‘s convinced his work is CANONICAL for today’s audiences
3. Which means he condescendingly doesn’t bother to explain, scene-set or contextualize ANYTHING for new eyeballs. “GO WATCH THE ORIGINAL”

#BladerRunner2049 is visually impressing and a great movie, but character development was quite weak on all female characters :/
First, no actress was named in the opening and ending credits. Even though @Ana_d_Armas has more screen time than Harrison Ford.

Here are the female stereotypes of #BladeRunner2049
