In this episode, Steve is blown away by “Blade Runner 2049″ and Jeremy D. Johnson offers his usual fascinating insights and observations – plus a short but flawless Harrison Ford impression (around the 55 minute mark), as we return for the last Deep Dive of the summer and to dig into both “Blade Runner” movies!
Here is a link to the film review Jeremy wrote in for Blade Runner 2049 in 2017. This was the piece I stumbled across in cyberspace that led me to reach out to Jeremy as an early guest for What’s Your Theory?. So, it was the impetus for everything else we’ve done together since – Deep Dives into “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and every episode of “Westworld Season 2.”
In many ways the 2 Blade Runners put the perfect cap on our long running discussions on the past, present and future of A.I., the nature of mind, soul, and consciousness… and what it all means for the evolution of consciousness for our planet and our species.
It’s also a personal favorite of mine, maybe because it took me 2 viewings to really “get” how great Blade Runner 2049 really is.
Meanwhile, since Star Trek Discovery has delayed the release of it’s second season, we’re having a change of plan for the fall. Jeremy Johnson will be back again in few weeks for another Deep Dive, this time into season 3 of “The Man in the High Castle.”
The show starts streaming Oct. 5th on Amazon Prime, so we’ll be digging into it shortly after then. It’s based on a 1962 novel from Phillip K. DIck (there’s that man again), and I’m guessing it’s a little scarier and more on the nose for the problems of today than Amazon suspected when they started production before 2016.
What’s it all about, you ask. Well… it’s kind of like this…
