Eve of Destruction (movie, 1991)

October 25, 2018

 

Eve of Destruction is a 1991 movie where a beautiful, but cold, woman scientist downloads her intelligence into an android, only to have the android experience a #MeToo rage fest with all those repressed feelings about the ex-husband and ex-lovers. An updated version would have the android going after her condescending bosses and co-workers as well, but I digress. The movie poses many of the fundamental questions about life and robotics: Why do Tony and Emmy award actors like Gregory Hines take roles in movies like this? Why is an experimental robot carrying a small tactical nuke in her thigh? Why do we keep repeating the Dr. Morbius in Forbidden Planet “it’s never a good thing to download your mind into a machine” mistake?
