I was extremely critical of Blomkampf after Elysium, and no less so in preparation for this film. However I actually really liked it. He has redeemed himself in part to me anyway. Chappie has a message or two that really work. It’s not about the danger of AI, it’s about how dangerous humanity can be when faced with change. Or how innocence can be corrupted? Its got like five messages floating round. Just pick one and go with it.
I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.
FIRST TRAILER REVIEW OF 2015! I wasn’t really into the first trailer because it seemed to show pretty generic stuff for a first trailer and am a bit sore from Elysium (So disappointing) so I didn’t review it. Also no time. This I liked though, the idea of AI is fascinating and it’s always a good sci fi concept. The idea of replacing police with robots is giving me very vivid RoboCop flash backs. But I’ll wait and see. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

Were back to the top ten’s and this could be the last of 2000-2010, so let me make it a good one. Kid’s films, mainly animations which let’s face it are the best. So many films missed the cut off date, for example A Bug’s Life (1998), Tarzan (1999), The Iron Giant (1999) and Toy Story 2 (1999). Good year for kids films, but I am unwilling to change the almighty rules of the top ten. For I have spoken my gibberish! Ok so if you didn’t see the part 1 go do that and vote for favorite film from part 1, then in part 2 which you are reading now do the same, then after a while I will post the results.
With the release of Prometheus this weekend I have decided to take a good look at its director’s past films and have decided that these are his top 4 films. Ridley Scott has made some of the best films ever made and four of them are below, so please check them out to get a good look inside of Ridley Scott’s mind.
Don’t forget to vote for your favourite Ridley Scott Film at the end.
