At one point, the prostitute Mariette remarks about K's holographic girlfriend Joi, "Oh I see, you don't like real girls." Ryan Gosling starred in Lars and the Real Girl (2007), about a man's relationship with a sex doll he ordered on the Internet. See more »
After the scene where K finds the wooden horse inside the furnace, we cut to Joi and K back at their apartment. During their conversation, Officer K's arms change position, from resting on his lap, to his clenched fists being used to support his chin, between shots. See more »
I hope you don't mind me taking the liberty. I was careful not to drag in... any dirt.

These are my opinions, but many around here agree with me so please hear me out.
I am not going to pose or be pretentious. I am going to be honest and simply lay it on the line.
The good: I am a Blade runner fanatic. The DVDs (yes, more than one edition) are sitting to my right as I type this. The original was just that: original and deep. The futuristic vision, the subplots and the theme were fantastic. Vangelis' score was once-in-a-life-time. I really liked BR2049's graphics and how big the effects were. The colour palette was impressive and made us feel in awe. I am a man so I like women's skin. beautiful women do it for me. My girlfriend knows it, I know it, my friends know it. Beautiful women make me happy.
The bad: we just do not need any more sequels, prequels and spin offs. We really do not. yet, that is all you are releasing. Even a general favourite like Blade Runner does not need its own sequel. Yes, granted we went for it, but seriously get a grip. We do not believe positive professional reviews anymore. We learnt that lesson with The Force Awakens. Not one professional reviewer mentioned that it is an inferior reboot. Finally, your films are becoming longer and longer. What is with the 2-hour plus movies that have become longer? Couple that with the twenty minutes of commercials (didn't I just pay you? why do I have to pay more with my time?) you force on me I am tempted to stay at home and skip the cinema.
Think about it.
