Because you’d do anything for your dog.
On a post-apocalyptic earth, a robot, built to protect the life of his dying creator's beloved dog, learns about life, love, friendship and what it means to be human.
Tom Hanks stars as Finch, the last man on Earth. He’s an ailing inventor facing his own mortality, but because he has his priorities in check he builds a robot to keep his beloved dog safe.
If that’s not reason enough to see this movie, I don’t know what is.
Finch ultimately has to teach his creation to become "human" enough to take care of his adorable pupper, and for it to accept the robot as its new master.
I’m admittedly a sucker for any film starring Tom Hanks because he’s an incredible actor. And I love movies about robots and A.I., and then you throw dogs into the mix and it’s… it’s just everything one could ever want in a film.
The timing of the movie is interesting too. Back around 2017, Intel announced that after about 40 years, official support for the PC BIOS will be killed off in 2020, thanks to the arrival of UEFI a few years ago.
