Frankenstein [1931]

“We are about to unfold the story of Frankenstein, a man of science who sought to create a man after his own image without reckoning upon God.”

FRANKENSTEIN! #11, so getting into the really good stuff now. It’s a fusion of classic horror and sci fi.

Fave bits were when Dr Frankenstein was like I’M NOT MENTAL. NO REALLY. I’M TOTALLY FINE. And everyone knows the truth. (psst he’s mental).

It’s okay Dr. You can be who you want to be. Your friend however is killing everyone… so erm, might be worth sorting that out.

Just like the end of Godzilla, I felt very sorry for ‘The Monster’. Totally didn’t ask to be created. And then was killed very painfully 🙁

I would be super grouchy about people wanting to murder me too. So The Monster and I have SO MUCH in common. Watch it.

AI Artificial Intelligence [2001]

“Please make me a real boy!”

I thought this film was HEARTBREAKING. Observe: David: I thought I was one of a kind… **ACTUAL TEARS**

Basically the story of a boy trying to find love. Except the boy is actually a boy-robot. And he’s accompanied by sex-bot Jude Law.

Lots of references to Pinocchio, Tron and the Wizard of Oz. Questionnable ending. Very Spielberg. IT’S ALIENS. IT’S ALIENS. GUYS…

IT’S ALIENS. Overall, I give it a three & a half robot thumbs-up out of five. Worth a watch though some bits got my eyebrow raising.
