Dune Movie Preview – all there is to know!

Next year, November 20th 2020, director Denis Villeneuve will release the first of two Dune movies. Dune of course is the magnum opus of author Frank Herbert who released the novel in 1965. Fans of the novel and its sequels have always wanted a film adaptation that would do it justice – the 1984 David Lynch version being particularly epic for failing to do so. But now we have Denis Villeneuve creating what he says is a faithful adaptation. To properly adapt the source material the book is divided into two movies. Filming for the first has started in February...

Blade Runner 2049 Review – A sequel that blows away the original

Blade Runner 2049 Review Finally after three and a half decades fans of Blade Runner have their sequel – Blade Runner 2049. This time directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Ryan Gosling as K and Harrison Ford as Deckard. Learning there was a sequel in the works gave me mixed feelings. On the one hand I wanted to experience Ridley Scott’s neon-lit dystopian world again. On the other I did not want the original to be diminished. That has not happened, in fact, I believe this movie blows away the original. No movie is perfect, just like the first Blade Runner this...

Blade Runner 2 release moved forward to October 2017

Blade Runner 2 release moved forward to October 2017

Blade Runner 2 release moved forward to October 2017 A few weeks ago I reported that Blade Runner 2 received a (controversial) release date, January 2018. The news came on the heels of the success of Dead Pool. Fans and industry insiders speculated that the studio was not worried about a off-season release. Perhaps they were signaling Blade Runner 2 was not meant to receive a wide release. Today, in total contradiction of that reasoning, and with joy, I can announce Blade Runner 2 has received yet another release date. The movie has not been delayed, instead it has been brought forward 3...
