This movie was great. It was so good to see some of these characters back on screen again. If you are a Star Wars fan, go see it as soon as you can.
I kinda liked this film. It’s a little bit dark, and the super heroes are depicted as lonely people with extraordinary powers and the associated responsibilities.
Oh, and afterwards, I went to dinner and found some cool glitter art on the walls of the restaurant. Very timely.
The temperature hit just above 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Central Texas today, so I opted for a late evening walk with hopes of less heat on the path. I started off from Rivery Park in Georgetown, which you can see from the trail map photo is located in the middle of the Georgetown trail system. It turned out to be a nice walk along the paved trail, with gentle slopes to climb up and down, and some nice views of the San Gabriel River.
For fans of the original Blade Runner, they have done a great job of recreating this film series. The sci-fi world on screen is just magestic. The flying cars are flawless. Ryan Gosling is the perfect choice for the lead role, and Harrison Ford holds his own. My favorite character is Joi, a holographic companion, played by Ana de Armas. They could have based the movie on her and it would have been wonderful. Be warned that the running time for this movie is long – I was in the theater for 3 hours with previews and credits – and if you are like me, you may not find yourself a fan of the storyline. However, this is a must see for the local movie house or IMAX if you have one nearby.
I had the opportunity to join a Social Media Conference at the new Sheraton Hotel in Georgetown today. There were guest speakers like Erik Qualman, Natalie Zfat, Brian Fanzo, and Chet Garner, among others. Google them if you are interested and you will find a world of tips and advice for being your authentic self in social media. There was tons of food as indicated by the tower of Round Rock donuts. All in all, it was a great event!
I’m not sure who or what was most beautiful in this film – Charlize Theron, Sofia Boutella, Berlin, the rocking fight scenes, or the well played soundtrack. Everything was wonderful, and I recommend that you get to the theater for this one.
I have a suggestion if you really want to see this movie. Bring along some of your favorite music and a good pair of noise cancelling headphones. When the movie starts, crank up your personal jam session. That way you can enjoy the visuals on screen without having to suffer through the mind numbing plot and associated dialogue.
