The skies are pitched black, darkness has fallen across the land, and the only form of light comes from countless flames; always burning fiercely with no sign of dying down. Amid the blaze lies a figure shrouded in shadows, traversing the fires unfazed, unmoved. In their hand lies a small round figure, otherwise unrecognizable from the sheer dimness of the scene. They move closer to the flames. It’s a man. He is still covered in shadows, but a red light can be seen from his left eye. Before anymore can be perceived, the scene cuts to a city, with the camera panning across the metropolis. read more

(Spoiler-Free Review)

The fact that this shoft anime film exists is somewhat of a small miricle.

It all begins with Ridley Scott's 1982, cult classic sci-fi film, Blade Runner. A film derived loosely from Philip K. Dick's novel titled "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?". It explores philosophical issues related to the over-arching theme of the impacts that technology has on society, i.e. designing robots (Replicants) that are visually the same as humans, and progressing them to a point where they themselves believe that they are human.

And now, thirty-five years later, writor, editor and director Denis Villeneuve continues the saga not only with a sequel read more

This coming October will see the release of probably one of the most anticipated sequel release in recent memory,Blade Runner 2049.It's been 35 years since the original and the fans had quite the wait to once again delve into the mastercraft world that Ridley Scott built and who else could do it better than probably the best director of this generation Denis Villeneuve.Before the film is released 3 prequel shorts are being released to let the viewers know what awaits them and the final short which is an anime is directed by one of my most favorite director Shinichiro Watanabe.
First of all lets get this read more

To explain Blackout 2022 I best start out this quick review explaining what Blade Runner actually is. Blade Runner is a 1982 Hollywood science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott. Set in 2019 it depicts a dystopian Los Angeles under the influence of the Tyrell Corporation, who manufacture advanced human-like androids known as replicants. These androids were designed to work in the off-world colonies although a number have escaped back to earth illegally. Those that do so are hunted and ‘retired’ by a special police force known as blade runners.

Blackout 2022 serves as a bridge between the original 1982 movie and the upcoming Blade read more
