GEEK OUT! CHAPPIE: A MOVIE ABOUT A.I. THAT IS ARTIFICIAL AND NOT VERY INTELLIGENTGEEK OUT! CHAPPIE: A MOVIE ABOUT A.I. THAT IS ARTIFICIAL AND NOT VERY INTELLIGENT

chappie

DIRECTED BY NEILL BLOMKAMP
WRITTEN BY NEILL BLOMKAMP AND TERRI TATCHELL
STARRING SHARLTO COPLEY, DEV PATEL, JOSE PABLO CANTILLO, HUGH JACKMAN AND SIGOURNEY WEAVER.

A movie about a sentient robot is nothing new, of course. To the credit of its director, Chappie starts out as a distinctive and unique take on the subject matter. Despite early lapses in logic – why is it so easy for rival engineers Deon Wilson (Patel) and Vincent Moore (Jackman) to mess around with their employer Tetravaal’s assets – there is a certain naive charm about Copley’s Chappie and its relationship with the colourful gangsters (Ninja, Yolandi and America). The sequences where Ninja and America teach Chappie to commit crimes is frankly hilarious.

But the moment Moore activates his diabolical plan, Blomkamp throws logic to the wind and the convenient plot devices stack up in the manner that was too prevalent on Blomkamp’s last movie, Elysium. The movie then no longer makes any sense – again the utter lack of security at Tetravaal is ridiculous – with the added silliness of the whole consciousness transfer being the last straw that reduces this initially promising scifi flick into a steaming pile of crap.

The thought of Blomkamp screwing around with the Aliens franchise next is an extremely disturbing one. Sigh.

GEEK OUT! THE WALKING DEAD – SEE NO EVILGEEK OUT! THE WALKING DEAD – SEE NO EVIL

What’s going on? Why are our intrepid gang of survivors acting like the bad guys? How am I supposed to feel about Carol threatening a young child in order to conceal a secret? Are Rick and company totally unable to adapt to normal life and trust anyone now?

These questions and more will plague you as you try to understand the fundamental changes confronting our favourite characters on The Walking Dead. Despite the apparent peace and calm of Alexandria, Rick, Carol and Daryl are expecting the worst and are acting accordingly.

This will all end in tears. It is guaranteed.
