or the point wasn't "these things are sentient therefore oscar isaac is a dickhead"

but what does it mean to be sentient or to have human rights or however you want to frame that issue

well, at the least argument posed in the movie was that she might just be pretending to have emotions so the guy would help her escape. Nathan said she would be simulating sentience to get caleb's help.

I'm not saying you couldn't argue against this. It's just that it was specifically posed in the movie that if she were simulating she would do exactly what she did purely for survival

what's the desire to be free then if not a feeling/emotion/indicator of sentience

you can be duplicitous, but that doesn't mean you don't have feelings

but a desire to survive is a subjective feeling of hers. how are you sentient by that standard?

like she even goes out of her way to kill buffton mcblackvest. why?

could be for survival as well

if you are programmed to survive and you can deduce that your chances of survival are smaller based on another human living

I don't think that proves sentience but doesn't exactly disprove it either

I'm just using the rules the movie posed as the criteria for sentience

I pass the test, but you'd have to personally give me the test, in person, to see if I passed it in your opinion

I could just be like the OS from Her

I like it too. When a friend of mine didn't because it was "over-dramatic," I was like "yeah, but, shut up."

it's got the pacing and writing of an anime, and the premise is done with a decent balance of gonzo ridiculousness and a sort-of-realistic brevity.

what

do you think this because she didn't empathise with the ginger dingus or what

the guy wasn't a villain, which is why i don't like how they made him seem villainous, just a bit of a crude bait and switch

Get Hard

Kevin Hart is peaking in his fame. Will Ferrell is...still himself. I love Hart's schtick, and Ferrell has his moments, but it's just like Paul Blart: Mall Cop: an obvious schtick of playing to a comedian's schtick.

If you like modern outlandish comedy, this is for you.

But, "thedeadwalk!, this is all what I expected from the trailers!"

Yeah. Yeah, you're right. This is a long review to a trailer that pretty much how you feel about the trailer you will feel about the movie. But, that's life. Suck it up.
