    District 9 and Elysium were alright. Overrated, though.

    My kind of flick, and i'll be seeing it.

    Although not quite the same, there are similiarities here that immediately brought back a few memories of the Outer Limits series that premiered on Showtime back in 1995 of the episode entitled - I, Robot starring Leonard Nimoy.

    Was going to post about this, but this movie looks pretty meh. I didn't think Elysium was all that great, but I fucking love District 9. This movie looks like it will be a cliche robot movie. I, Robot, mixed with Short Circuit. I'm sure it will be about the robot finding himself and a lot of "eyes rolling back" moments. But, there will be killing so, who knows.

    This looks fantastic! Neil Blomkamp always has a great political message to say in his movies while also staying uber creative in how he tells it so that it doesn't come off as feeling incomplete or boring as some movies seem to do. District 9 was about Immigration Reform, Elysium was about Universal Healthcare...now we have Chappie that may or may not talk about giving advanced science a chance.

    Whatever Neil Blomkamp talks about in his movies have always been more positive on subjects of discussion that most people are far too afraid or too ignorant to talk about, and I'm glad he's one of those great directors that gets you to think about topics and what you can agree on. Christopher Nolan does the same thing, but many can agree he becomes too pretentious and overbearingly ambiguous to be memorable that most of his work people seem to feel is over-rated.

    Long live Neil Blomkamp. Chappie looks amazing!

    They actually shot a version in the 50s as well with a really young Nimoy as a reporter. Can probably find it on youtube.

    Indeed. I remember them talking about that very thing when I was watching an Outer Limits behind the scenes bit around the time the new series was starting up. Good call.

    Blomkamp is finally getting to make something along the lines of the short piece that got him the District 9 gig to begin with.

    Tetra Vaal (2004)



    ...though he needs to be careful he doesn't become a one-trick-pony. Regardless, there's no way this thing isn't going to be waaaay better than the Wil Smith I, Robot. That film was a waste.

    Stay away from The New Outer Limits series from the 90's then. That very theme is heavily interspersed over 7 seasons.

    Movie was a little disappointing, but I still enjoyed it to some extent. It was entertaining and how Blomkamp chose to explore the AI was interesting and a bit more creative than other films. However the story sort of lost me towards the end with what ultimately happens with certain characters. You really gotta suspend disbelief with that, but whatever. I'd give it a low 7/10.

    That rating sounds about right to me. I was expecting it to be worse than it ended up being, although seeing such a similar concept in the vastly superior, "Ex Machina," definitely lessened the impact the film had on me. I loved the directors first flick, and was pretty meh on this and Elysium, but I still have hope the dude will deliver a kickass Alien film.

    I feel like Chappie is horribly misunderstood, everything was good and yes even the last part of the story goes all over the place but it still holds a consistent story and ties everything together by the end, I think it's a movie that has to be viewed more than once because it's story is a little more thought-provoking being sci-fi while also being realistic, talking about humanity in its whole how grim and sinister it can be but no matter what it has its optimism that becomes the gateway to how one can live forever...

    Taste is taste though and I can't fault everyone for not liking it, but it's worth more than the bad criticisms that it got.
