Eavesdropping at the Movies – Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 is something else. You simply must see it on the biggest screen you can find. Do not listen to us if you care about the film because we go heavy on the spoilers. (We always go heavy on the spoilers, but this film is good so it actually matters.)

I’m not very good in this one but Jose more than makes up for me so it’s okay.

  1. I loved the film. I found the ending one of the most poignant scenes. Like you said, Joe is introduced as a lonely shell, he has almost nothing in his life. By the end, his boss/friend is dead, his job is gone, his computer girlfriend is gone (and as Mike says her artificiality is then rubbed in) but arguably his entire motivation throughout the film, his memory was also artificial – at least for him. With that goes the belief that he was born and that he has found his father. It should have been devastating (not a fan of the ‘resistance’ scene). So when he lies back on the steps at the end, he has nothing, but he himself is finally content with what he has done for Deckard and the meaning behind it.
