The director of Blade Runner 2049 Dennis Villanueve last four movies he made were Arrival, Sicario, Enemy and Prisoners. Of those four the only one I didn't like was Enemy. But I loved the other three. Based on that he's one of the reasons why I'll see BR2049.
Now take Ridley Scott, he has Alien Covenant, the Martian, Exodus and Prometheus as his last four. The Martian was great, the other three, garbage. Going forward I'm going to be a little more hesitant with his films
Just listened to the first 15 minutes. Very sorry to hear this Chris, but taking care of your family is the most important.
I've mentioned before but CGS was what got me into comics. That being said I rarely buy single issues. I stick to trades. I'm not sure if I'm part of the problem but I see no justification in spending 3-5 dollars on part of a story. Whereas I can spend 20 and get a complete story.
