The time has finally come! It took me a while to get to due to getting the chance to see ‘Downsizing’, ‘Pitch Perfect 3’, ‘Bright’, and ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’. Now, I can say that I am finally doing my favorite write-up of the year: Ranking my Top 10 films that made an impact on my movie-going experience! (Stay tuned for my 10 Worst films of the year!) Unlike previous years, these films are not specifically ranked by grade as much as to how I loved them. (even though, it is a major factor in my choices) With all that being said; on with the countdown!
In 1982, a filmmaker named Ridley Scott (‘Alien’, ‘Gladiator’, ‘The Martian’) took us to a world never before imagined by the human mind. In this world lied breathtaking sights, new and innovative technology, and ideas that would shape life as we know it for the future. No matter how many times this world has been revisited, it still manages to captivate all who visit it to this day, remaining a cultural phenomenon and an experience to witness; it was the world of ‘Blade Runner’! Now, 35 years later, Director Denis Villeneuve (‘Arrival’, ‘Sicario’) takes us back to that same world; only this time, almost everything has changed. The sights we saw have evolved into colorful giants of virtuality and 3-dimensional realism; and while some of the technology remained the same, the world itself has expanded into a bigger, fully realized city of danger and possibilities; The year is now 2049!
