    K (Joe) smiles exactly once in the entire film. And it’s near the end after Deckard asks him why he helped him. Unless people are projecting Gosling’s natural flat smirk throughout the story.

    It’s an interesting theory. I’m perfectly happy with the idea of whether being a Replicant vs a Human even matters, since pro-creation is on the table. There’s a shift after K realizes he’s not “the one” where he encounters that giant Joi hologram and determines that one’s actions for a cause truly define what it is to be human.

    Just completed the entire RLM oeuvre a week ago and have to disagree.

    RLM is all about Star Trek (Mike), Sci-fi, horror (Jay), and shlock; whereas FJ eschews tasteless movies, low-budgets, and doesn’t go out of their way to bash other podcasters/vloggers/entertainment venues.

    Could you imagine Mike Stoklasa being in a room with Reed for three hours?!

    Besides, RLM collaborated with Honest Trailers, which they now regret considering that Andy Signore was ousted for sexual misconduct. Check their latest Nerd Crew ep for a quick mention of the incident.

    Don’t think RLM will be looking to make new podcast friends anytime soon.

    But, aren’t you taking in what others think of a film when you’re with the FJ crew? Or, don’t their opinions count?

  • ReelJunkie

    I was coming more from their film discussion in Half in the Bag/re:Wind. I feel like that would be a good fit for FilmJunk, as they too are good at dissecting the films they are reviewing.

    Reed has to be on more episodes. He’s gold.
