Chappie (Trailer #2) Review

FIRST TRAILER REVIEW OF 2015! I wasn’t really into the first trailer because it seemed to show pretty generic stuff for a first trailer and am a bit sore from Elysium (So disappointing) so I didn’t review it. Also no time. This I liked though, the idea of AI is fascinating and it’s always a good sci fi concept. The idea of replacing police with robots is giving me very vivid RoboCop flash backs. But I’ll wait and see. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

Robot & Frank (2012) Review

I wasn’t quite sure what I was walking into when I watched this film but now I know it’s a film about a lovable rogue and his uptight robot friend. Why hasn’t this been done before, it’s fantastic. Frank Langella did a great job in this role both with the dementia aspect and the acting with a robot for the majority of the time. The story has many aspects to it but the fact that the robot has no good or bad aspects to its involvement is really interesting. The characters are fun and the yuppies are just so asking for it it’s unbelievable. The dialogue and style is sharp and very funny at parts, with some theology mixed in for good measure. The visuals are really good for the most part with pretty impressive predictions for the tech of the future. I want a robot friend.

Frank: “Next time someone harasses you, just say ‘self-destruct sequence initialized’ and start counting down to ten.”

Real Steel (2011) Review

Just watched this film at the weekend and thought it was well good to ok nothing special, nothing even memorable but it wasn’t bad. It was basically Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots turned into a movie, but unlike the battleship being converted to a film they didn’t have fun with it, but instead decided to go more serious with a bit of a gritty back story and a bad father son dynamic. A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Tim’s Film Reviews: wait till it comes out on TV.
