Blade Runner 2049 and the Hard Problem of Reality

Denis Villeneuve’s critically acclaimed sequel to the 1982 Ridley Scott Classic is officially a box-office disaster. (Apparently you have to rake in a half a billion these days for a big movie to be considered a success.)

But don’t worry. That won’t slow us down in spending a full GEEKOUT episode of the World Transformed exploring the many dimension of this bleak and fascinating vision of the future.

Listeners beware: this one is all spoilers all the time. We also spend some time reflecting on the original Blade Runner, and on War for the Planet of the Apes. Plus we throw in a mini-review of Thor Ragnarok!
