A. I. Artificial Intelligence

Friday, July 10, 2020

A.I. Artificial Intelligence came to theaters in 2001.Another Steven Spielberg movie, with Stanley Kubrick (of 2001 Movie fame) pushing the limits, as usual. I really wanted to like this movie, but I found it confusing with a hopeless ending. OK, plot: In the 22 century, global warming has caused flooding of coastal cities & loss of human habitat. For some reason, various companies make Mecha (high functioning robots). Mechas can be servants, groundskeepers, etc. They follow orders & have some ability to pass as human, but they don’t have emotions. A married couple lost their child who contracted a rare disease, & put in suspended animation. They are given a prototype child sized Mecha,David, with the ability to love. Monica, the wife, activates the imprinting - he will be her little boy forever. Some time passes, & their real son, Martin, is cured from his illness. Sibling rivalry has Martin telling David to do things like cut Mommy’s hair (scaring her to bits).She takes him out to the forest & left him with his old talking teddy.




Meanwhile, in another story,Gigolo Joe, another Mecha (guess what he does) , is accused of killing his client (the husband did it,) Joe runs off, finds David in the forest. They are swept up in a raid by humans, that make entertainment for “real” people” by destroying the Mechas. Joe & David escape. Back in the good old days, Mommy read the Pinocchio story to David. He now wants to be a real boy. He’s searching for the Blue Fairy. Yada, yada, yada, they find their way to ?Manhattan, & the man that created David (& lots more identical David’s & parts) There’s a helicopter, he’s underwater in it. Joe is pulled away. 2000 years go by, David’s eyes were open & he could see what he thought was the Blue Fairy. He’s frozen, finally defrosts, goes to the Blue Fairy - the only survivors are evolved Mechas. She tells him she cannot be made real, but they have the technology to trace anyone’s genetics from something of her’s. Well, fortunately, Teddy had picked up the hank of hair David had cut off way back when. They can reconstruct her for 1 day (& not a 24 hour day). She would go to sleep & never wake again. David asks for that day. Mommy falls asleep, after telling him she loves him. David, who never slept before, falls asleep also. Teddy is still “alive” with the advanced Mechas.


(Please, please, make me
into a areal live boy)


When You Wish Upon a Star (Disney version. It wasn’t in this movie)




When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.



If your heart is in your dreams
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.



Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing


(as artificial flowers have to flowers)

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true



When a star is born
They possess a gift or two.
One of them is this.
They have the power to make a wish come true.



When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you,



If your heart is in your dreams
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.



Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing.



Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.
