Blade Runner 2049 Speakerhat review: I guess I wear music now

I’m a sucker for cyberpunk, and this thing was screaming my name.

Living in a world where nostalgia is practically weaponized against young adults with functioning wallets, I’m used to skipping over the latest quick attempt to make a buck.
