blade runner 2049
35 years after the monument of Ridley Scott – absolute reference for fans of science fiction, specialty robots – the visionary filmmaker Denis Villeneuve takes up this massive torch, and offers Blade Runner a sequel eagerly awaited by some, feared by others.
We follow the adventures of Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a Blade Runner tasked with tracking down and eliminating failing replicants that are dangerous to humans. At the end of this tortuous investigation, within a hypnotizing cyberpunk universe with sumptuous aesthetics, this solitary hero with a mysterious past crosses paths with the legendary Rick Deckard, alias Harrison Ford, protagonist of the original film.
Cradled by Hans Zimmer’s bewitching score, this vertiginous dive into the world of Philip K. Dick has something to reassure fans from the start, and get neophytes on board.
Considered one of the 15 best science fiction films of the decade 2010-2019 by DashFUN viewers, this too little known nugget, the first feature film by filmmaker Alex Garland (screenwriter of Sunshine and 28 days later), fascinated many viewers when it was released in 2015.
Carried by a trio of four-star actors – Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac – Ex Machina takes us in the footsteps of young Caleb, a brilliant coder invited to stay for a week with his mysterious boss, a solitary mad scientist and eccentric, with very nebulous intentions.
Dragged against his will into one of the strangest scientific experiments, Caleb will have to interact with the beautiful Ava: a machine equipped with a whole new form of artificial intelligence. Thus begins for him a disconcerting, hypnotizing, fascinating, and sometimes terrifying journey.
Love, Death & Robots
Originally envisioned as an anthology film, in which David Fincher, Gore Verbinski, Tim Miller and Zack Snyder would each direct a segment, Love, Death & Robot eventually became an animated series under the auspices of Netflix.
On the menu ? Suspicious yogurt, lycanthrope soldiers, rampaging robots, trash monsters, cyborg bounty hunters, alien spiders and bloodthirsty demons from hell: all this beautiful world is brought together in 18 not recommended animated shorts to sensitive souls in the first season.
Sometimes dark, sometimes colorful, the series digs into pop culture (manga, TV series, films) to distill a few winks and other references ranging from Blade Runner to Alien via Black Mirror. The result is really excellent, and a hit on the platform.
