Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

Kind of an odd comparison. While both sci-fi, one is more of an action movie, the other more of a ponderous drama.

I like them both, but if I had to choose I would go to Minority Report because it's more watchable (in that I have to be in a certain mood for AI, but I'll stop and watch Minority Report when I come across it).

A.I. by a mile. I love Minority Report, but A.I. is a much better film.

AI, even though I find it so heart-wrenching and depressing I can"t imagine watching it again.

I'm missing something about Minority Report. While I think it's fine, I don't understand why Roger Ebert picked it as the year's best movie.

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

I absolutely loathed AI. It was a massive disappointment to me.

On the other hand, I thought Minority Report was really cool and interesting.

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

I couldn't vote because I find both movies to be equal in terms of enjoyment. I appreciate both films. They two brilliant films that I feel give a glimpse of our possible future.

Minority Report is quite enjoyable but I think A.I. is the better film. Much more emotional catharsis at the end.

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

Scott Frank wrote MR and I love his scripts and films but always hated the eyeball clearance part of it. Even in those days of the real world, once you're fired from a top level organization your clearance is revoked - you even get an escort off the premises. No way would Cruise's character be able to get back into the HQ building with the eye.

A.I.

One of the few movies you get lost in the world and enjoy the journey,

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

For re-watching, Minority Report.
The first time, A.I.

Part of the reason I was excited to see A.I. the first time was the because of the marketing campaign for A.I. I have a poster around here somewhere that has my screen name on it (with everyone else).

Same here. I even re-watched AI a few years ago, thinking maybe I was too young the first time I saw it. Nope!

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

Whatever idea Kubrick had with the premise of AI, Spielberg totally missed the mark or stripped most of Kubrick's POV out of it. I also watched it again earlier this year, I doubt I'll watch it again. I guess since AI and Minority Report are both sci-fi, that's why he's asking which is better? I never saw them in the same genre, but at least Minority Report was a fun, well paced flick. AI is close to the bottom of the Spielberg heap.

You misspelled "Hook."

That is true, Hook at the bottom and AI right above.

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

Minority Report for me, the plot kept moving at a suspenseful level. Plus it has a rewatchable factor.

Liked AI as well but I don't think I can watch the final scenes again. Some think it ended on a positive note with David getting what he wanted, but I found it very somber and depressing, topped off by John Williams' very haunting yet sorrowful piano music.

No way A.I. is in Hook territory.

B.F.G. could be below or at the same level as Hook.

It is that...which is why I think it is a great film.

I'm missing something about Minority Report. While I think it's fine, I don't understand why Roger Ebert picked it as the year's best movie.
I'm with ya there.

BTW, Ebert wasn't infallible.

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

A.I. was more or less Pinocchio with a more “realistic” ending. I’ve seen it once and felt like that was enough. I don’t hate it, I just didn’t find it fascinating.

The ideas in Minority Report are great sci-fi, and the movie takes itself seriously with those ideas. Perhaps that’s what Ebert liked about it so much.

The mom in A.I. was a bitch for dumping him in the woods.

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

I loved Minority Report.

While A.I. might have been a good film, the story was just not really my thing.

A.I. is the only movie I ever wanted to walk out of.

It's a total POS.

Re: A.I. Artificial Intelligence or Minority Report

I'm surprised it's as close as it is, AI was pretty divisive when it came out. I think if it ended under water it would elevate it, but I'd still prefer Minority report overall.
