I don't know what to say.

Yes I'm aware that we have a youtube thread and this would fit under there, but I feel it would be missed by so many people who'd appreciate this.
I felt the whole spectrum of emotions watching this video.

I don't know if this was intended to be an innuendo or not, but I'm tempted to sig it regardless.

EDIT: Done.

got 2 minutes in and almost passed out from boredom
If a mortal stands before us
Strike him down with sleight of hand.
And if heaven rides against us
Then God himself must be damned.

We all saw it coming from the very beginning. Has there ever been a film about robots and humans living in harmony?
I will admit that even though it was predictable, it was still creepy. The thing that bothers me is that someone actually designed a household robot to have the ability to kill.

It had the ability to think, not necessarily kill. Hence why it could figure out how to make meatballs with a child, rather than from the tender, juicy meat of a particular bovine.

I would have thought the programmers would add some sort of preventive measures. Also, why would it understand the word "kill"? That's an accident waiting to happen.

Though it heard the mother say "I'll have blinky clean and cook you if you don't clean it up"

The robot made the leap to cook him it seems, what from the kids telling him to kill everyone.

Fucking child got what was coming to him.

i enjoyed it
Catch me,
heal me,
Lift me back up to the Sun
I choose to live
#21
It would have been a lot more powerful, to me at least, had the film ended with Blinky closing the door. Still was pretty good, if a bit predictable as pointed out by others.
#23
I thought it was advertising the invention of an actual house helper robot..then I read the comments.

Haven't seen it yet, will now.

I'd totally treat Blinky better if I had one.

Well that totally fucked up my day.

I like what he did with the kid though, he deserved it AND it counts as recycling

Spoiler alert!

Not sure I like the idea or how it's exectuted. Initially it was slow as hell and boring to watch, then the "twist" came which there really was no build up to. It just sorta happened and I think you're supposed to think "oh wow, didn't see that one coming, I guess if you looked at the clues I should've known" but it was just "uh, ok... guess he killed a bunch of people for no apparent reason, besides from the kid treating him poorly. Whoop de doo, he's a robot. The actors were quite unconvincing as well and I had a hard time "feeling" any of them.

In conclusion: While being aesthatically pleasing, the clip did nothing for me and the end didn't make me feel anything but "that was just stupid".

Seeing as how he'd serve you as dinner if you didn't treat him well I think we can all agree that treating him well is the best course (ololol) of action.

SPOILERS!!!


The robot was malfunctioning from being left in the rain (which the second advert for blinky seen in the clip said not to do) and being given conflicting orders, causing the murderous rampage (which was mentioned at the begining during the news reports, although that could be a different blinky as it was said later on in the clip that there would be a line re-call and a full refund for any malfunctioning units)

He didn't kill them because the kid wasn't treating him well.
#37
Well didn't the kid tell him to kill him (the kid), his parents, and everyone else. Then the robot broke and had to be restarted. So that's probably why he killed them all imo

a robot would not ever harm a human being because of the three laws of robotics:

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

they were devised by Isaac Asimov for science fiction purposes, but if they ever came into existence, those rules would definitely be installed, so that film, although is realistically in the future, is incredibly unrealistic. i doubt robots wouldn't be waterproof in the future also, so that's not a very good plot line for the future either.

but i did enjoy it in the long run. reminds me of the scott tenorman episode.

That's why the reset was an important plot device. Its likely that these laws were installed, which is part of the raisin that Blinky didn't start his massacre immediately, but once he was reset, the data cluster where the laws were ended up being corrupt or some such nonsense.

too bad robots would be programming and programming something like that isnt easy and easily hackable
