A sequel 35 years in the making, Blade Runner 2049 builds off the cult-classic 1982 film, Blade Runner. The 2017 film brings forward the concepts of self-identity, life, humanity, and the soul. Although this film did not meet expectations in the box office, the key elements of this film make it worthy of being on ones “must watch list.” The first defining element of the film lies in the story (plot), while connected to the 1982 film, the story branches out with its own ideals and purpose. The second defining element is the characters and actors who portray them. Ryan Gosling is perfectly suited to his character, Agent K, where he embodies the warm-bodied robot of the time, joined by Harrison Ford, in his return role as Rick Deckard.
Glory: Directed by Edward Zwick, Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group, 1989. 122 Minutes Reviewed by Mike Edward Zwick’s Glory is a movie in which the balance between entertainment and history was perfectly managed. He uses the letters sent by contemporary Col. Robert G. Shaw to his wealthy family back in Massachusetts as the historical foundation of the movie while imagining conversations between characters. Through Col. Shaw’s eye, we are able to uncover the birth, the development, and the end of the 54th Massachusetts Regiment, the first colored regiment fought in Civil War. Just like any other war movie, Glory has several battle scenes that were unpleasantly bloody, yet they managed to stay authentic.
He does know how to play the bad guy as usual. Janson is a guy that is committed to finding a cure to the epidemic that is attacking the world as well. He is one of the most enjoyable characters in the whole movie as every time he appears we are reminded of what is really happening in the movie or mostly which way the director is taking us. Gillen should have more interventions in the movie he has managed to have a small success in television, but he should capitalize that on the big screen as he could be that bad guy that you love to hate. Wes Ball, the director of the film did want to have his vision on how the "Maze Runner" should look like and add his touch of adapting the source material, but sometimes complicating things only work against you and this is one of those cases as his attempt falls short and just makes this version so different from the world he try to introduce us in the last film.

Played as Charles Foster Kane, himself, Welles, unexpected fame brought breakthrough in the film history and student filmmakers of many generations had the chance to study this one-of-a-kind film.
I love the acting (especially Morgan Freeman) and plot. I love how this film builds slowly and takes its time, which allows you to become invested in Andy’s fate. Interestingly, the film is not told from the protagonist’s point of view, but rather through the eyes of his good friend. I love the friendship that Andy and Red share in this film and how it gives them both the strength to survive prison, and then freedom. The end of this film, beginning with Andy’s escape, is what makes it exceptionally great.
