The summer of 1982 was one of the most insanely awesome times ever to be in a nice air-conditioned movie theater. I can't remember how many times I saw the film that summer, but it was a lot.

At 163 minutes, this film is getting on for an hour longer than the first movie, but we are on a journey of discovery with K, with the same kind of questions raised about life and existence that were a vital part of director Ridley Scott's movie. "Blade Runner 2049" has released all over India.

Harrison Ford in Blade Runner 2049.

And he's come up trumps with this follow-up film.

Indeed, Ridley Scott in the past has suggested that there could be more Blade Runner movies after 2049. It's a movie that is almost impossible to top and it was doubtful that those ambiguous open-ended story threads could ever be tied-up to any fan's satisfaction.

Carolina Panthers report card: Grades reflect production, always a victor in Detroit
Matthew Stafford had played consistently well this season and I like the way the Lions defense is creating turnovers. GROUND GAINS: Detroit is slowly improving its running game, going from among the NFL's worst to relatively average.

Blade Runner 2049 is now playing in US theaters nationwide. I tried to keep it on a human level's point of view.

Blade Runner might not have been the finest piece of cinema (contrarian discourse is welcome), but sure has acquired one of the biggest cult followings cinema as a medium has known. She then began poking fun at Gosling, asking, "Did you get your knitting needles out [on the set] because I know you like to relax". Is it satisfying? Absolutely!

The standout performances in this film are by cinematographer Roger Deakins and the countless special effects artists who bring this past future to life once again.

Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) steps behind the camera for the R-rated sequel, which is based on a script from the original film's Hampton Fancher and Murder on the Orient Express' Michael Green.

A sequel to Blade Runner (1982), robots known as replicants with features of human beings, were created to help serve the goal of exploring new planets for human settlements. But assuming Warner Bros. orders a third Blade Runner, would Denis Villeneuve return in the director's chair?
