Chappie fans can't help but see some resemblance between Tom Hanks's latest film Finch and the older film. Both employ an impressive CGI robot prominently and a future setting. It was only going to be a matter of time before the jokes started populating on social media.

I hope it doesn't suck as bad as Chappie. I couldn't even make it through the first 30 minutes of that horrible movie.

What happens when a real-life global disaster strikes while you’re making a post-apocalyptic film? For starters, you take another look at your ending...
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movie ... 235033236/



Director Miguel Sapochnik discusses the making of the film, his epic road trip with Tom Hanks and changing its ending after finding himself in the unforeseen situation of telling a dark post-apocalyptic tale amid a real-life global tragedy

"The surprising thing was that I've done a lot of dark stuff and doing something that's not dark is so much harder," Sapochnik says in his first interview about Finch. "It's harder to do something with any sort of hope or lightness for many reasons"

Sapochnik wanted to lean into a line in Finch about how hope keeps people alive: "The world's been going through a lot of turmoil, and we realized we didn’t want to add to it, we wanted to somehow find some meaning in all the chaos"

Tom talks about doing a talk show again, being the only human in his movie “Finch,” acting with a dog named Seamus, the idea of going to space, hosting a 60’s radio show called Songs from the Back of the Station Wagon, doing a lot of local radio morning shows at the beginning of his career, the passing of his dear friend Peter Scolari, and he shares one of his favorite scenes from their time working together on “Bosom Buddies.”

Agree, watchable, Hanks is good as expected, CGI on Jeff was excellent but the story needed more. Maybe explore a more balanced side of AI as humanity around it keeps failing.

I thought it was ok, but no great. The robot was kind of annoying.. got better though. Also didn't take long to figure out the twist end the end (which I guess isn't really a twist).
