The movies on AI, which have been made over the years, explore our relationship to technology. They range from tragic to romantic. This movie often leaves us with interesting questions and self-criticisms.

10 Best Artificial Intelligence Movies to Watch

These are the top ten movies that deal with Artificial Intelligence in thoughtful and interesting ways. You can watch them on weekends to get over the lockdown blues.

1. A.I Artificial Intelligence (2001)

A.I. A.I. is based upon a short story by Brian Aldiss. It tells the story about a young robot boy (Haley Joel Osment), who is abandoned by his human parents and sent on an adventure to find his purpose. This film is a long journey that asks questions about human nature and provides few comforting answers.

2. Ex Machina (2014)

This is an interesting approach to artificial Intelligence. It plays out like a horror movie, isolating characters and posing danger to the world. Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander both give unexpectedly strong performances.

This claustrophobic game of chess explores how we might handle something that is so similar to us, despite having more horror elements. This is a fascinating reference to Kubrickian storytelling, with morality and sensuality at the forefront.

3. A Space Odessey (2001)

HAL is given an interesting personality despite his quiet and soft-spoken demeanour. HAL’s quiet demeanour contrasts with his ruthlessness. HAL is able to read lips and refuses to unplug his computer.

He also thinks critically about how to ensure his survival. It’s not clear if HAL really wants survival or continuation of his tasks, given his pleas in the death scene. His aggression could easily be attributed to human programming, which also gives him immense power. These concepts have influenced every AI movie since.

4. Blade Runner (1982)

This Ridley Scott classic is one of the most beloved science fiction films ever made. This fantastic adaptation is set in a grimy, neon city. The Replicants only care about their survival. The antagonist’s every move, while violent and thematically sympathetic, is not for them. Artificial intelligence brains are given fascinating rules to follow. It is a world-building exercise that is both combative and stylistic.

5. Transcendence (2014)

Evelyn, Will Caster’s companion and wife, uploads Will’s consciousness to the quantum computer when Will’s life is in danger. The plot centers around Will’s decision that he will live in his virtual body. Transcendence may seem clichéd, but it’s one of the best films ever made about artificial Intelligence.

6. I am Mother (2019)

I am Mother is a dystopian tale in which a robot raises an adolescent girl to help repopulate the planet after it has been destroyed by a virus. The daughter becomes aware of abnormalities after the Mom robot is destroyed. This sci-fi thriller features AI technology. The plot begins when the daughter meets another woman.

7. Singularity (2017)

The film is about the creation of a supercomputer for a robotics company to help end global conflict. However, things go wrong when the AI robot believes that humanity is the greatest threat to the world and wants to kill all people. Only a handful of humans survived 97 years while running from the robot army. This film is not recommended for everyone because it has a slow pace.

8. Wall – E (2008)

This Disney picture was quite rich thematically. It doesn’t portray humanity in a positive light. There is the possibility that humanity has left Earth because it destroyed its ecology.

Humans rely on AI to perform monotonous tasks and survival. WALL-E is taught to love EVE by his father, but we are essentially mindless robots without any contact. This film is a good contrast with lots of family charm and humor.

9. I, Robot (2004)

It is understandable that the protagonist has animosity towards artificial Intelligence. Instead of following a woman, a robot saves him. This robot is a perfect example of logic-based life: it lacks empathy.

The antagonist, Sonny, is a fascinating guy who is puzzled by why he stands out from his peers. The film covers a variety of topics including friendships, murder, and judgement. The old models we have so casually forgotten about save the protagonist.

10. Her (2013)

This video shows how disconnected we are as species. The protagonist’s relationship with AI Samantha is charming, unlike other romcoms. It is interesting to explore the idea that personal data might be a way for us to create our perfect connection.

Although the movie portrays human relationships as unfulfilling and sleazy, it is impossible to deny that our relationships with AI are a fabrication. This is a clear statement about the problem with AI relationships. AI is beyond our understanding, which results in total unpredictability.
