Blade Runner 2049
"I did your job once. I was good at it."
The Film Board Gathers! This week on the show, we’re gearing up to hunt some rogue Nexus 8s and save all humanity with Denis Villeneuve’s take on the Ridley Scott classic, Blade Runner 2049.

For Andy, Steve, and Pete, this film trods in the playground of our youths… did it really need to be made? Probably not. But since it’s here, what has it done to further the lore of the Blade Runner? We shall see…
