Re-watched June 2018: a picaresque that journeys through childhood, the world of adult sexuality and violence, and death, with varying amounts of thoughtfulness, but what makes this seem a little better than I remember it is the understanding that the question of "real AI" is not whether it can have "feelings", but whether it is capable of dreaming new dreams of what has never existed. Some of the narrative mechanics are a little clunky, but it also develops some poetic and affective power.

A flawed but fascinating minor masterpiece from Spielberg and Kubrick. It blends classic sci-fi themes with fantastic visuals and exceptional performances to create a beautifully haunting experience. The much-debated final sequence is far darker and more profound than most people realize.

My score for this one might have been somewhat inflated by Jonathan Rosenbaum's insightful review, which brought me to think of this film as a flawed yet poetically resounding work; a particularly oedipal Pinocchio-meets-2001: A Space Odyssey. Still, how sad that Kubrick didn't live (until 2001, perhaps, which would have been something...) to direct this himself, maybe with Spielberg on board as a sentimental navigator. Something about it just feels like it failed to meet its full potential.

The best thing about Spielberg is he'll always make you forget you're watching a movie; he'll always engross you with storytelling and filmmaking that looks so effortless. But what probably keeps A.I.'s head consistently above water is Haley Joel Osment's performance. It's the best of his I've ever seen, he just embodies David so remarkably. The film has its flaws to be sure, and maybe the last half hour stretches the suspension of disbelief even in the sci-fi setting, but I wouldn't change it.

Though flawed, attempts to ask one of the true questions of scifi as literature. Child as the protagonist in a movie is not a new idea, but still explored. When that child is a simulacra himself, we are on the new ground. Spielberg just had the guts to make some suggestions, never with a full sentence and in the foggy realm of fairy tales. Multiple endings arise from the sentencelessness dillema. It would have well been over 40 minutes earlier.

One of the most unjustly chastised films in Spielberg's ouevre. "Sentimental" ending aside (a charge both highly contentious and equally reductive), this is a magnificent fairy tale, wedding influences such as Pinocchio and The Wizard of Oz to the philosophical and humanist inquiries of Solaris and Blade Runner. It boldly wears its emotions on its sleeve, but the tone always suits the material. The final sequence runs a bit too long, but the rest is wonderful. Spielberg's best.

Maybe the best directed film of Spielberg's career - which is not something I say lightly! An astonishingly ambitious work that plunges headfirst into the darkest depths of existentialism, whilst co-starring an anthropomorphic teddy bear and a love-bot played by Jude Law.

This movie refuses to end. The narration is corny and Jude Law is uncomfortably bad to watch. Spielberg's commitment to the Pinnochio thing becomes jarring I wish he would've abandoned it cause it does not work at all. You are a robot dumbass, you can't be real...isn't he supposed to be intelligent? If I hear Haley Joel Osment say mommy ever again I'm going to kill myself.

My favourite Spielberg. I find the ideas it explores fascinating (and very relevant) and the manner in which it explores them to be both highly compelling and incredibly affecting. It's a film that is not without flaws but personally I find so much rewarding about the film that the flaws can't really stop me from respecting and loving it. I adore the ending which is deceptively sentimental and remarkably dark, leaving David in the same situation Monica was in at the beginning.

Kubrick in its pacing and awe, Spielberg in its intimate emotional punch and lighthearted fantasy. The combination create a singular motion picture experience: it goes beyond what any other movie has, into the personally profound where, if you view it properly, it will both disturb and touch you; amaze, crawl under your skin and make you think. A shockingly relevant and criminally underrated masterpiece.

This movie holds special interest to me as it explores many philosophical concepts of intelligence, what it takes to be human, and what it means to be 'alive.' It's one of the most underrated movies ever.

Grossly underrated. As years go by and AI advances this movie may get even more relevant but it's not all technology. It's also an unorthodox view of the childhood itself - the clash between the call for adventure and the need for security shown through the eyes of a child of the technological age. You can clearly distinguish Kubrick's and Spielberg's parts but I would argue this separation is more of an enhancement to the overall experience than an obstacle.

Starts out pretty good: David is an unsettling presence and the dynamics of how he relates to his "family" is intriguing. Things go wrong in the second act, which is mostly adventure story and CGI jizz-fest. The third act seems promising, but it ends too quickly and takes us to the most contentious section: the epilogue. Spielberg milks it for sentimentality, reducing it to a simple theme. In the end, it's a movie that raises a few interesting ideas but squanders a lot of its potential.

A lot of times people will say, oh, you didn't get it. Correct. I did not get it. What I did get, is that it ends twice, and the half hour before the second ending is pretty useless. Spoiler alert: he's a robot.

"This is not about the shadow of Stanley Kubrick but the bright, burning light of Spielberg's filmmaking genius. Difficult and challenging, it is also profound, extraordinary and visually astounding. Tally it up and you've got a very unusual masterpiece."

Confused, the film like a little robot boy stumbles around in awe of the ideas it wants to chase and explore, yet never quite able to grasp any of them. Whispers of Bladerunner, of maternal horror, of world-building in a post-human world. In the end AI seems mostly unsure of its mission but a spectacle with enough going for it to warrant a watch.

Probably the easiest to watch 2 and a half hour long movie there is. Jude Law steals the show in my eyes, he owns that character. Also, Teddy has to be one of the best characters in any movie, I want my TV series based around him.

A.I. starts off well, and continues to be a very good film for most of its runtime. It has a perfect moment when it should have ended, but didn't, instead continuing when it shouldn't, taking a direction that it likely should have forgotten about. The lead actor didn't make me believe, but the side actors made up for that. The visuals are great, and the world created is awe-inspiring. It just doesn't hold together when you look at the way it ends.

Perhaps I'm in the minority here, but I really liked the last twenty minutes. Such an abstract turn isn't too far-fetched for me in a film that's ultimately about humanity itself. The biggest issue is that each act of the film feels like its own distinct movie, with the Flesh Fair sequence being ultimately blunt and stupid. A film about Gigolo Joe could be fascinating, but here his inclusion seems to stem from Kubrick's liner notes. There is a masterpiece within this concept, but not here.

More ambitious than successful. It reaches to be a sci-fi masterpiece and the definitive film on defining humanity. While it doesn't succeed, it's still one of the better explorations of the blurred line separating humans and machines. Also, let's all just agree that the film ended in the ocean and ignore the rest.

There are a bevy of interesting ideas and visuals here, but the execution leaves something to be desired. It's nauseatingly sentimental, with a lot of cheesy dialogue delivered in sappy whispers. There's also something awkward in its pacing, which feels too stilted to support such an epic scope.

A cool visually appealling movie about the future. The robot rally thing was an awesome way to portray rednecks in the future. The teddy bear was absolutely horrifying. Jude Law was absolutely perfect. But the whole story has just been done before, and I kind of thought the ending was just stupid.

For the most part, I really enjoyed this movie. I loved the first half, liked the third quarter and wasn't really sure exactly what I felt about the last quarter. The visual effects were really great overall. I thought Haley Joel Osment was good. Two things I really disliked were Chris Rock's and Robin Williams' cameos - tacky and took me right out of the story. But all in all, a touching, well-made film with an epic scope. Also, I loved Teddy.

Was there a chance in hell critics weren't go to spooge all over Kubrick's pet project? Mankind's brillliant first A.I. duplicates humans in every way, but someone forgot to program him 2 not be monstrously creepy & stand over u with a pair of scissors while ur sleeping. He could've also used some kind of warning sticker 2 not let him near any bodies of water lest he drag u 2 ur death after he falls in. As for that ending? Apparently it's meant 2 b advanced robots, but how the f-ck can we tell?

This film really wrestles with me. It seems like such a magnificent masterpiece that's HUGELY flawed with massive bugs. The moral and thematic conceptions are interesting to me, but their worn on the sleeves on this film so largely rather than be driven by a storyline; which is why I like Jude Law's section (middle act) more (and as always Jude Law rocks). But some of the moments in the start and end feel amazing, but forced, which is ... an unusual position to be in.

A strange combination of Drama and Science Fiction that mirrors the story of Pinocchio. There are a lot of strange cameos, my favorite being Meryl Streep doing the voice of the Blue Fairy. Jude Law was especially good in this as Joe the Gigolo. It's a really long movie and takes a really strange turn at the end, but it is mostly enjoyable. The one thing that this movie teaches is that humans better not create real living A.I. because we'll treat them worse than we treat each other now.
