I haven't heard of a single person that is excited for Blade Runner 2. In fairness I don't know that it is going to be bad. But I kind of do. The sequel to the legendary tale of replicants and the people who hunt them is rumored to star Ryan Gosling and will also have Harrsion Ford. I guess it's because he's revisiting his old roles before retirement. This abomination has gotten a release date. It will come out January 12, 2018. I can see myself treading through the snow to see this piece of crap and then being mad that I put on my snow boots to see it when it is inevitably terrible. Call me lazy, but I don't think it will be worth it.

Maybe I'm wrong. Perhaps it will be amazing. Director Denis Villeneuve is a good director and writers Hampton Fancher with Michael Green are talented and all, but sometime all the talent in the world can't improve on something that should never have existed. You can only polish a turd so much.
