Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 164 freaking minutes?!?!?!?
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

If you're going to see this, take a nap first.  Then drink about six cups of coffee.  Then buy the biggest caffeinated cola the snack bar sells, the one with the refill.  Okay!  Now you're ready to be bored out of your mind while watching super impressive visuals.

There's a decent story here, but it could have been told in 100 minutes instead of 164.  And the majority of the crowd seemed to be less than impressed with the ending.

mother! (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 120 min
tesg's Rating: Zero stars (out of four)

This movie is perfect for those who:
  • Really hate religion and love to mock it
  • Really hate women and love to both mentally and physically abuse them
  • Really really really really love the male ego at its worst
For everyone else, this movie is a disgusting, sickening abomination that should have never been made.

Wind River (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 110 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

Beautifully shot in the desolate snowy West.  The plot unfolds nicely with the resolution coming abruptly, yet perfectly weaved in.

It could end up being my choice for movie of the year not so much because it's that good, but because the competition this year has been that weak.
