‘Chappie’ Review: Highly Artificial, Limited Intelligence

The technology in Neil Blomkamp’s movies is so fully realized and intricately detailed that it feels like another one of his characters. Now Blomkamp’s made Chappie, a film where that’s literally true in the form of a police robot given the gift of human consciousness. The result is one giant metaphor for itself; a story of the world’s first true artificial intelligence and how it is almost corrupted by violence, presented in a movie where any semblance of serious consideration of what it means to be alive is drowned out by gunfire, explosions, and macho posing.

We Wish Snopp Dogg’s Fake Nature Show ‘Plizzanet Earth’ Was a Real Thing

The late night talk show scene is lousy with fake gags, including plenty of sketches that center on fake television shows. This is fine! It’s fun even! But it’s not often that a fake late night show is so good, so strange, and so funny that we wish it were real. If only Plizzanet Earth was real.

‘Cinderella’ Review: This Old Fairy Tale Still Has Some Magic

The name “Disney” brings to mind images of fair princesses, charming princes, magical fairy tales, and simple happily ever afters.
