    You are definitely not getting it.

    They created human (not clones) slaves that are genetically superior to their creators. Knowing that these super human beings could be a problem, they are prohibited from being on Earth and owning any sort of replicated creature is borderline illegal as well. The creators put a very short life-line on the replicants, to prevent them taking over, should they find a way to do so. And that's what set off the events that unfolded in the 1st movie and the 2nd movie appears to be about what the creators feared would happen.

  3. I'd buy that for a $1.

  4. Either I'm having some wicked deja vu or IP is trolling by copy/posta -ing some shit that was said here years ago.

  5. IronPlant, I support you in your push for equal rights for replicants.

    Definitely wasn’t artful, it was a shit relationship. Another reason why I would have rather they left those characters in the first movie.

    This is not proof I'm not getting it.

    You're lost in the details. My summary is valid. Its 2 hours of commentary on capitalism run rampant. Humans by Monsanto.

    Maybe the two of you don't like that the franchise can be boiled down into two or three sentences, but that is on you. It doesn't mean there is anything else to get. The movies are dumber for the changes they made to the source material.

    The question of "what is human" is far more interesting when they are part machine and part human. When they are humans grown in machines with slight alterations to DNA, much of that debate vanishes and instead you're left with a boring dystopia where a company can hold ownership over humans because of copyright and ambiguous interpretations on what constitutes citizenship. Stories about the Ship of Theseus are far more interesting than "hey, capitalism is dicks"

    Of course it was a shit relationship, they were both (mostly) emotionless constructs. That doesn't preclude it being *interesting*.

    Couldn't be something along the lines of "anytime a source of human capital can be exploited, it will be, and denied human rights until it demands them by force?"

  10. I thought it was interesting that "K" didn't care about the woke replicants at all one way or another, he just wanted to finish out his quest.
