[#136 in 100 Films in a Year 2017]

this week on 100 Films

2 brand-new reviews were published to 100 Films in a Year this week, and they were...

Antz (1998)
it’s a funny old film. It feels more aimed at adults than kids: star Woody Allen is doing a version of his usual schtick, and the plot riffs heavily on political systems like Communism, a combination which means most of the jokes will soar over children’s heads. That’s before we get on to the brutal war sequence against monstrous termites.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
This is a movie with a lot to think about. It doesn’t do the thinking for you either, instead leaving space for the viewer to interpret not only what themes they should be thinking about but also what they should be thinking about those themes. This seems to have been a little too much for some viewers... It’s definitely a long film — a shade under 2 hours 45, though obviously there’s a fair chunk of credits... It’s not a mile-a-minute thrill ride of a movie, but I think it’s the length it needs to be. It leaves room for ideas to sink in.
