Director Denis Villeneuve was the one aspect that most solidified my faith in this revelatory sequel to the beloved 1982 Ridley Scott-helmed classic, Blade Runner, and I couldn't be happier that it lived up to - actually, even exceeded - my already extremely high expectations.

I find Napoleon Dynamite to be one of the most entertaining movies about basically nothing, ever.
