My somewhat overdue appraisal of AI will come tomorrow night... finally going to see the damn thing.

No, I thought so too.

Ok, NOW I have seen it!

First of all, I should say that the beings at the end are definitely robots and not aliens; it's part of the entire thrust of the fillm anf their lines give it away as well.

Next, I disagree with some pervious statements about the ending. I could very esily see Kubrick having come up with, if nmot exact;ly that ideea, then something very similar. It had a certain amount of his detatched weird feel about it.

As for it feeling tacked on and sentimental... in many ways, yes, and in many ways it seems an absurd plot convenience introduced just to get some closure, and all athat space-time talk really DID seem out of place.

On the other hand- and I didn;t realise this before I went to see it- AI is a modern day Fairy Tale in the classic sense. A sudden, unexpected, even unbelievable occurrence to set things right at the end is the meat and drink of such stories. All those Pinocchio referecnes weren't just to provide a parralel between David and the puppet; it was to provide a parrallel between fairy tales and this film (rather like those patronising vocieovers done in fairy-tale style). So the ending HAS to be happy (of a sorts, anyway), and for it to come out of the blue like that is very in keeping.

Of course, it doesn't mean you have to LIKE it... in fact, I would be sympathetic to the idea that the whole Fairy Take theme was a mistake, though if nothing else it distinguished it from Asimov's work in the same area.

I did like the film, though it was a little long and laboured and some bits really did stick out like a sore thumb. And Jude Law was cool...

Jude Law was the only saving grace of the film. Saw it on Saturday with Mrs.MM and was bitterly dissapointed, I had a numb arse by the end of it and all I could think about was the trailers at the beginning cus I wanna see "Lord of the Rings" sooo bad.

I liked A.I.

And, like I said before, it is a movie meant to be watched a few times. I need to see it again. I just assumed that the beings were aliens that had come to earth, thousands of years after the world had ended.

i've seen it now, and i think it's a great film. spielberg is, in my mind, an underestimated director, many see him as just a money-making guy, but he really has made many great films.

Yes, AI really was great movie making. Too bad it was considered a flop by Speilberg standards, only made $80 million in the US. They were predicting that it would beat Titanic roll eyes (sarcastic)

I generally don't listen to critics. A movie is not good or bad by it's box office number. Look at "The Shawshank Redemption". No one saw that in the theator, then it came out on video, and everyone loved it!

Speilberg is not an underestimated director. He is probably the most acclaimed of all film directors! When Speilberg attaches his name to a project, everyone wants to see it!

And he has made some of the best films around these days.
Schindler's List
Saving Private Ryan
Raiders of the Lost Ark
E.T.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Jurassic Park
just to name a few

God I love this movie, however I had almost forgot about it. But I must say the ending, while drawn out was beautiful. I almost cried

Cool

Good Jedi Ben, now you can List it on the other Thread; what movies made you cry.

big grin big grin

I really Liked the Teddy bear in the Movie. He was way better than Jar Jar.

Infact, I could have probably been more interested, If the main Character was the Bear. Infact, I bet that idea, would've have the movie a Oscar contender. Just look at Babe.

Whew!!!

I know this is old, but I just heard that AI is coming out on DVD in March.
I can't wait!!!! I wonder how I will feel about the movie 10 months after seeing it!?!?
I didn't like the ending, maybe I'll like it better now!
It's going to be a 2 disc DVD set, with lots of special features!
I cant wait!

Yeah, I didn't like the ending at all.

It's going to be kewl to be able to pause the DVD and get a good look at the excavation work the advanced mechas were doing. That last scene goes by so fast, and there so much to see, that you have to pause it and take it all in.
