    I interpreted the last “Joi” scene as K realizing she was just a program. She calls him Joe, revealing it wasn’t just a personalized thing between them, and the shot lingers on the “what you want to hear” tagline. To me that’s a pretty strong implication.

    Yeah that's a totally valid interpretation, but not the one I get from watching the same thing. Which is why I love this movie. Hopefully people will still be dissecting this in 35 years!

    This movie certainly stays with you for a few days after seeing it.

    I really wish the ending would have been a bit more upbeat. I really wanted [BLACKOUT]K[/BLACKOUT] to live after all he had been through.

    Also, Luv seemed to have a sadistic pleasure in doing things to humans.

    That was my interpretation of the scene also.

    This was the best movie I’ve seen all year. I’m not even a huge fan of the original, but good God this was great. I hope it gets a lot of nominations for awards; maybe that could lead to a re-release and more $$.

    BR2049 is flopping in China. It has abysmal audience ratings (the ratings for this movie basically equates to a 'D'/'F' CinemaScore) and it's OD was an appalling 2.4 million. It's was tracking higher than GITS at one point but GITS has left BR2049 for dead when it comes to final numbers. To further rub salt into the wounds, Geostorm is doing very well and it is curb stomping Blade Runner so far with 4XBR2049's figures and way better word of mouth.

    Good not everything needs to cater to Chinese box office. The box office splits are pretty abysmal anyway.

    Deadpool wasn't even released in China, so good on Deadpool.

    my ONLY complaints in the movie were the lack of music queues from BR 81, and the movie was so LOUD in some parts (mainly the music) my theater's speakers could not handle it lol (to be fair the theater is over 25 years old).

    At least the Chinese don't deny climate change. They could be a lot crazier.

    Probably a dumb question but I really want to catch this in theaters and because I've been terribly busy this month, I get a chance to see it tomorrow. It's been years since I've seen the first one and to be honest, can't remember much of it at this point.

    Is it a better experience to rewatch the first one or does it work as a standalone? Theaters in my area are already pushing it out and I'm thinking in watching the first one down the line.

    I actually saw this with my mom who'd never seen the original, and she liked it. I think it works just fine as a standalone.

    I can't believe this movie is doing THIS poorly. That makes me a sad panda. :(

    They spent way too much on it. I know they probably had to open up the checkbook to bring in Harrison Ford, but they didn't need to make it a $170 million movie.
