because his holo-wife is just a product and the name was a marketing plug. there was a clue to this when the hooker lady says “there’s not all that much there” as a dig to her when she left after the sex scene, and then is confirmed when the giant interactive billboard calls K "Jo[e]", again assuming it's part of a behaviour routine

and all of that is supposed to tie back to and retroactively hint at K thinking he's special and have independent thoughts through like a third of the movie then SURPRISE he's notToggle Spoiler

Gosling's hologram girlfriend is named Joi. The acronym JOI in porn stands for jerk off instructions. If you don't know what that means, Google it.

Movie was great. Hit all the notes I wanted and more. Robin wright was pretty bad. Glad to see that that was already covered. The rest was exceptional.

I saw it in 3D in one of those luxury cinemas with recliners. The best. Would recommend not waiting for DVD if anyone's hemming and hawing.
are you not entertained?

Really enjoyed how much this movie meandered into plotlines and characters that didn't 'have' to be there
It feels like it kind of has the relationship to the original that movies like The Long Goodbye or Harper had to the Sam Spade era of noir: everything's a little more goofy and mean-spirited, and the main character isn't solving a mystery as much as he's just gamely wandering through a big shaggy-dog story that he only cares about part of

I agree with part of that, effectively I wish (sort of how others said) that this movie was two hours longer but with less bad dialogue/exposition/leto

If I remember correctly, Leto has two scenes in the whole movie, and they're more than an hour apart. How could that possibly annoy anyone that much?

have we talked about how the scale on the missile strike in san diego seems completely off? it'd be one thing if it was just a couple dudes, but it's instead the scavenger army out for one guy, and a full-on war scene.

as someone who loves Pale Fire more than life itself, I still haven't figured out any reason for it to be in this movie? like, thematically?

such a dumb scene on so many levels. Air to ground missiles are completely out of whack with this and the original movie, it gave away that Gosling was being followed which he paid zero attention to, no mention is giving to the dead scavengers when he enters the orphanage, no mention is given to his ruined vehicle and how he gets out of thereToggle Spoiler

I don't know if never glorifying the original made me more or less susceptible to liking this as much as I did, but it was the best time I've had in a theater for a non-comedy in quite awhile and I guess I'm surprised to be typing that.

I vibe with most of the criticisms being leveled against the plot itt but I took the incoherent causal chain as something of a depiction of or commentary on the seemingly eternal impossibility of constructing coherent personal narratives, because the interplay between memory and emotion, action and gesture can continually blur and redraw the line of who we conceive ourselves to be from one present moment to the next. also think I have less of an issue waving a lot of the plot stuff away when I thought the plotting was a weaker element of the original (which I've only seen once fwiw).

This was ok. Everyone I've spoken to whether they liked the movie or not has mentioned how badass the soundtrack was so that's going to be my takeaway. That and the sex scene
