I believe their the same people, so it doesn't really matter which one Wedge was referring to does it?

Also, Joshua Lucas didn't seem very comfortable with playing the role of Flash, either (he did way better in A Beautiful Mind).
That's an interesting way of discecting A.I. Although I didn't find anything original about that movie. And the kid, Haley Joe or Joe Haley (whatever), seemed to me to be trying just a little too hard.Originally posted by Pedro
Reasonably original 1 hour special
Really cheap Blade Runner rip off
Insanley Cheap 2001 rip off

It wouldn't have. If you watch the Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures documentary you will know that Kubrick gave the project to Spielberg quite willingly. AI was not something Spielberg picked up after Kubrick died, it was a movie Kubrick tried to do for many, many years, and finally decided Spielberg was better suited for it.Originally posted by mpanty
I wonder how the movie would have turned out if directed by Stanley Kubrick (it was one of his last projects after all). Darker probably...
I see. I did read that the two directors talked about the movie a lot and worked together on it, before Kubrick died, but I didn't know Kubrick had left the project to Spielberg for him to direct...Originally posted by Quarto

However, I do think that the guy who played Dallas did a really great job, and should have been left alive at least until the end of CD2. He played the nervious inexperienced rookie really well, as well as getting across all the emotions of someone who signed up to make money, and suddenly found out that getting shot at was a part of the deal. Hell, they should have killed off someone else entirely and kept Dallas alive all the way to SO.
Pedro didn't exactly explain it very well, but there are some meaningful similarities between Blade Runner and AI, as far as the subject matter goes. Both films deal with the issue of how humans would react to sentient robots (well, Replicants weren't robots, but they were man-made), and the question of how the robots' emotions affect this judgement. The two films even have the same answers to these questions - like the crowd in AI's Flesh Fair scene, Dekkard in Blade Runner has no moral qualms about killing sentient robots, until he encounters one which displays emotions.Originally posted by Frosty
It shares no meaningful similarities with Blade Runner. We can't just call a movie a Blade Runner ripoff every time it has fake people, and it certainly doesn't share any meaningful similarities with 2001. IT TAEKS PLACE IN TEH FUTARE!! So what?
