There's this movie I can't remember the name on.
It's about a family of three, a woman and two children ( the father died in a war)
The two children have this rare disease called Xeroderma pigmentosum ( wich means they can NEVER go outside into direct sunlight, nicknamed "children of the night") so they're inside all the time.

Strange things starts to happen in the house and blah blah blah, they think it's haunted or something. But then, plot twist, THEY are the ghosts, and the people they're seeing and the strange things that's happening are the new owners and them renovating.

What's the name of the movie?

I don't want to build up hype for this movie, but I really enjoyed it.

The Machine is about two computer scientists (Toby Stephens and Caity Lotz) who are working on developing artificial intelligence for military use. I'll save further plot details for the spoilers section, because it does get difficult to say too much about the film without giving away plot points. I think that's a good thing though, and I highly recommend seeing the movie. It may feel a bit predictable to some (there's one scene in particular I'm thinking of), but it poses a lot of moral and ethical questions, and I was really captivated throughout the movie. Caity Lotz gives an especially strong performance for reasons I'll give via spoilers. It's well-paced too, which is definitely a plus. I give the film a 9/10.

If you've seen the movie, or it isn't really your kind of movie, I'll be talking more in-depth about the movie below.

So Caity Lotz gets to the facility where everything is going down, and she meets Sam Hazeldine. All of the test subjects are soldiers who experienced brain trauma and wouldn't have survived without the implants they're receiving. Sam warns Caity about the facility, and the big boss, Denis Lawson, doesn't like this. He assigns a Chinese agent (the film takes place during a Cold War with China) to kill Caity. Her likeness and mind is transferred to a machine, who is referred to as Machine. There's then a struggle to see if Machine is "alive," meaning that they try and see if she has a consciousness, emotions, and can act as a human would. This is the case, which can be seen through feelings of regret and disobeying orders, something that conflicts with what she was made to do. Denis and Toby start hating each other, and Denis orders Toby to take out the "human" aspect so Caity can kill without remorse. Toby fakes an operation by rerouting a new chip or something to the original consciousness ...

Continued in next comment.

... and Caity just pretends that she's been de-humanized.

There's also this subplot where Toby's daughter has a disease, and he tries to use some of the tech to save her consciousness should she die, which she does as a result of an infection and not surviving surgery. This comes into play.

Toby didn't want to take out the human aspect of Caity in the first place, but Denis put him up to it by saying he'd delete the backup of his daughter's consciousness if he refused to cooperate. Then the predictable scene I mentioned happens, where Toby "does" the operation, but Denis says he's going to delete the daughter's consciousness anyway. Caity is then ordered to shoot Toby, but it's revealed the gun is empty and it was just a test to see if she could kill anyone, even her maker. Caity then saves Toby and orders the other machines to side with her, as they had been starting to grow against the humans by speaking in secret, something that the humans thought they couldn't do due to the implants.

Anyways, Caity goes to save the daughter's consciousness because she can't be shot with bullets. Toby and Sam go to shut down the computer responsible for developing the A.I., and they are successful. Caity says she won't kill Denis, but she does lobotomize him, as that's what he was going to do to her by making Toby do the surgery. Caity, Toby, and another machine featured prominently, Pooneh Hajimohammadi, escape, although Pooneh is injured, having been shot earlier by Denis for overriding his commands and aiding Caity, as well as preventing him from disabling more of the machines (he had disabled four of them prior to Pooneh's intervention).

In the closing scene, Toby is seen talking to his daughter via a tablet-esque device. Her consciousness had been saved to it, and she can speak (before her death, she suffered from Rett syndrome. I don't know exactly what that causes, but it was severe).

As I mentioned earlier, the film brings up a lot of moral and ethical dilemmas. What does it mean to be alive? How is something like that determined? Is it right or wrong for the military to employ these potentially great machines, which could have the capability of "being human," merely as entities to kill? It's definitely interesting to think about.

Caity Lotz gives an excellent performance in the movie as Machine. She conveys emotions, but sort of in a way that's hyper-exaggerated due to the fact that a machine that's just learning to feel emotions can only experience these emotions in extremes. If you don't know what sadness is, and then you're exposed to your first sad experience, it's going to feel extreme, because you have no reference for something being more or less sad than what you're experiencing for the first time. That's definitely not an easy task to accomplish, but Lotz seemingly does it with ease.

Sorry if that seemed a bit jumbled. I tend to write in a sort of stream of consciousness manner.

Also, that's not to say the rest of the cast does a bad job, because that's not the case.

Is Korra season 2+3 actually good?
User avatar #24850 to #24839 - aamann (09/06/2014) [-]
2 is debatable. Some people don't like it. I thought it was good, but definitely not as good as the first or third.
3 is just fucking great.
User avatar #24833 - flameblaze (09/04/2014) [-]
Aight guys, Now that Korra's done for a while, what's some good shows to watch right now?

Most Epic or Emotional TV Moments:Beware Spoilers, read at own discretion, watch clips at own discretion

1. Spartacus Season 1 Finale - Spartacus leaps into the audience watching from the villa in slow motion, with sword at full swing ready to kill his masters. Crixus, down below in the arena yells "Kill them all!" to his fellow gladiators that charge at the now unlocked doors to slaughter all the Romans. Plenty of other epic moments in Spartacus, like the entire finale of the show, but this was is the best for me.

Spartacus - Shield Jump

Kill them all - Crixus - Spartacus [ORIGINAL]


2. Fringe Season Finale - Walter sacrifices himself to save the world and rewrite time. Nice visuals, a scary roar from the portal, a slight breeze, beautiful music and a powerful performance by John Nobel without him uttering a single word.

What Dreams May Come, especially with Robin Williams just passing away. I'd be surprised if you can watch it start to finish with dry eyes.

Bran and Hodor will not appear at all in Game of Thrones Season 5.

User avatar #24814 to #24813 - suddenk (09/04/2014) [-]
That's surprising. Maybe they filmed there scenes last season.
User avatar #24816 to #24814 - eight (09/04/2014) [-]
They caught up to GRRM. Bran and Hodor are pretty much where they're at in the latest book, so they've decided to wait till season 6, presumably after the new book comes out, to continue Bran's story which will span until the very end. Should be in season 6 and 7.
User avatar #24817 to #24816 - suddenk (09/04/2014) [-]
But I thought they would show him looking at the past with the weirwoods

Anyone else in love with "Legends" with Sean Bean?

Not in love, but I am enjoying it. Its weak point is Ali Larter, she just can't act.

Agreed, but it isn't as horrible as in Heroes
User avatar #24827 to #24823 - eight (09/04/2014) [-]
I've never been more conflicted about a show than when Heroes was on. So bad, but many elements were really good.

Unfinished costume for comic-con new york. It's Malcolm Merlyn/dark archer from the show arrow, in case you couldn't tell due to the shitty photo quality. any tips to make it better would be cool.

Finally saw How to train your dragon 2. Great on all fronts. Best epic movie i've seen all year and it's a dreamworks flick, surprising.
User avatar #24805 to #24803 - eight (09/03/2014) [-]
I love the series too. I hope they continue those movies. And I'm not generally a fan of animations, at least not the newer stuff, but those two impressed me.

Hemlock Grove renewed for third and final season!

Gutted it will be the last season next year, but I'm also glad the series has a set end point and they'll wrap up all the plot lines.
