The Realists Take

A Day in A Future AI’s Life

At the end of this journey, we’re left with that monstrous tingling of existential dread. Dubbed as “Breathtaking, a Masterpiece and the best sci-fi of the decade”, ‘The Creator’ makes us realize that those morning brushes with Alexa might just turn into fully-fledged philosophical debates. Who knows, the AI future foretold in this sci-fi thriller might just be around the corner, so make sure to order your robot-translation manual in time!

Ex-special forces agent turned robo-hunter, Joshua is the stuff of every sleep-deprived engineer’s dreams. Although we’re slightly dismayed at the absence of a green screen and motion capture suits, Gareth Edward’s choice for realism gives a whole new meaning to “It’s a small world after all”. Vehicles turning into sentient beings? Outdated! Edwards’ movie magic proves there’s a lot more to Disneyland than cheerful singing animals and magic carpet rides.

As much as we’d love to belly laugh at Edwards’ ‘backwards’ approach to filmmaking, we can’t help but admire the audacity. Shooting first and designing later? That’s as counter-intuitive as getting Donald Duck to play Darth Vader – and it works!

Revolutionary lightweight camera or not, watch out for the next time you get into an intellectual conversation under the moonlight. Edwards’s camera could be filming you in your most profound moments of life-altering philosophies. In short, ‘The Creator’ isn’t just a chirpy goody-goody Disney tale. If anything, it’s an intriguing blueprint of mankind’s future relationship with tech, wrapped with a quirky sci-fi bow. Chilling, right? Yet, delightfully exciting!
