Get Ready Player One! The Future Is Not As Bleak As We Thought

Get Ready Player One! The Future Is Not As Bleak As We Thought

The long awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s classic sci-fi Blade Runner made its way to screens in 2017.

I think the film that it was paired with was Endless Summer 2 – a surfing documentary which was rated G and also happened to have boobs in it. What more could a nine year old want?
