BLADE RUNNER 2049
2017, Warner Bros., 164 min, Dir: Denis Villeneuve

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for decades. Nominated for five Oscars including Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Production Design. Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times said, “What’s remarkable about BLADE RUNNER 2049 is how good it is. The bottom line is indisputable: As shaped by Villeneuve and his masterful creative team, this film puts you firmly, brilliantly, unassailably in another world of its own devising, and that is no small thing.”


WAR DOGS
2016, Warner Bros., 114 min, USA, Dir: Todd Phillips

Todd Phillips (THE HANGOVER) directs this comedic drama based on true events. Oscar nominee Jonah Hill and Miles Teller star as friends in their early 20s living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. military contracts. The pair are soon raking in big money and living the high life, but they get in over their heads after landing a $300 million deal to arm the Afghan military—a deal that puts them in business with very shady people, some of whom work for the U.S. government. Costarring Bradley Cooper.
