It was my second viewing, but I was able to understand that the content of the conversation and the meaning of the letters in the first half were connected to the second half, and I enjoyed it even more. The ups and downs of emotions that can be conveyed just by Scarlett Johansson’s lines are amazing. The casting was good, and the scene where Joaquin Phoenix’s face was shot with a hand-held camera, coupled with the lighting, was drawn into the screen.

The design of the AI ”Nozomi” sitting in a server room-like place is cool. Feeling like a fusion of rose-like flower petals and conch shells. I was conscious of “Godzilla vs Biollante” and thought so.
I was really relieved that Nanako Matsushima, who played the role of the dead wife “Nozomi”, didn’t fade. smile
Enjoying the convenience of AI and the coexistence of immeasurable fear. The pointillism from the point of view of the surveillance camera is quite different and interesting.

I don’t like the near future, science fiction, or robots, so I almost never watch them, but this one was good.

A greedy movie packed with action, sci-fi and romance elements. After all, America in this era has a very cool atmosphere, so it’s interesting to just stare at it. There are some parts that I think are a little bit in terms of video technology, but it’s worth watching. A thrilling movie.

There is a movie with AI as the scriptwriter! ?
So far, we have introduced movies with AI as the theme, but do you know that there is a movie in which AI is the scriptwriter ?
The next two movies are famous for being made by AI.
If you are interested in AI movies after watching the AI-themed movie I introduced earlier, we recommend checking out the “Movies made by AI” below.
Zone Out is an old film and a movie shot against a green screen. Produced in 48 hours.
The technology that exchanges faces with AI is used, making it a movie that seems to eliminate the church line between the real world and the fake world.
Sunspring is the world’s first sci-fi short movie scripted by AI. I didn’t write the movie script from scratch, but I let him learn past movie works and write the script.
It seems that there was an unnatural phrase in it, but it was made into a movie without modifying it. There is a song sung by a woman in the work, but the lyrics were also written by AI.
Among the movies dealing with AI, there are many movies that use AI-equipped robots and chips.
Many of the movies are popular, and with the recent development of technology, more and more people are interested in movies with AI as the theme.
Also, in AI (robot) action movies, there are many battle scenes where robots/AI and humans fight, which is very exciting to watch.
In recent years, in addition to using AI as a theme, works that have AI write scripts have also become a hot topic.
