The six best onscreen pairings of robots and the apocalypse
5) A.I. Artificial Intelligence
Steven Spielberg's A.I. Artificial Intelligence offers a more thoughtful, less violent but ultimately no less bleak look at the future of humanity and robots. In his movie, the robots don't so much kill us as do their own thing while we kill ourselves. At the movie's end, humanity is extinct and our creations have evolved beyond our wildest dreams. So, hey, good for them. Too bad for us, though. We really should have figured out that global-warming thing instead of fucking around with all those robots.
