All of us on HCF who have seen Blade Runner 2049 have so far agreed with the general critical view that this is a more than worthy follow-up to the 1982 classic, but it seems that this hasn’t translated to commercial success, as its opening weekend wasn’t too great, the film earning only  $31,525,000 in US cinemas which is around a fifth of its massive budget – though it’s still at the top of the box office. And those of us who enjoy quality sci-fi shouldn’t be too disappointed. The original film was an outright flop back in the day and didn’t even have a lot of critics singing its praises.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
