I'm hoping for good things, but I imagine the budget is pretty tiny. :faceoff:

No matter how promising, this stuff is nearly always disappointing. That said, this appears amazing.

It's about sexbot in particular,
There's no apparent moralizing.
The actresses are extremely hot.
There's no indication of the usual of the "wait, they will get free will and rebel!" trope or any of the usual let-down tropes.

But then again, I don't need open panels, malfunctions or overt robotic behavior.

Edit: This review, visible only in webcache, gives an overall run-down of the movie. The conflict in the movie seems to be "will the man become emotionally stunted" or something. Which is just the premise I'd like. If the only conflict is "can handle an honest-to-god working sexbot", well, I'm willing to suffer and try.

So I've following the film. Not much more information but they claim they'll be in theaters this Valentine's Day (the 13th, five days from the day of this post). They've announced several theaters (in Boston, NYC, Baltimore and Houston).

Anyway, folks near those locations might check it out. I'm hoping there are more locations.

So the movie is out in a very few theaters (more or less one at a time, NY, LA, Baltimore).

Here's a review

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgaGMDBs16Q

Summary: No twist, no "robots want their freedom" moment. The women play the robots as empty, robotic lovers. The plot is about what the men experience, basically. No indications of malfunctions or open panels.

For me, this sounds still pretty amazing, depending on how much screen time the robots get.

Continuing my obsession, here's another review:

https://www.thatmomentin.com/2050-review/

I'd quote a bit but selection is broken for me on site. But it again gives the hint the basic plot as "here's your robot lover, be careful of what you wish for".

And just adding more news. The movie has apparently been commercially successful in that it was held over a week in it's limit run in LA.

Naturally, it's had mixed (poor to middling) mainstream reviews.

One quote that gives makes me interested is:
As for the “e-mates,” Holt does well to ensure they always feel artificial despite the human characters being quick to fall prey to their overt deception. This isn’t Blade Runner where people want the robots to look and feel imperceptible. No, this world instead seeks to know definitively that they aren’t. 2050 is about us as a species right now and how we’ve detached ourselves from humanity with smartphones and the internet. These “e-mates” are thus positioned on that same level of entertainment, research, and experiential tools with janky motions and unfeeling eyes programmed for compliance. They’re nothing without their user and provide an escape precisely because they’re fake–a distinction that allows those users to see just how good and necessary the “real” truly is.

Since it appears this film is ONLY being shown in select theaters (no digital/physical release), I've emailed the director requesting a digital copy of it. Fingers crossed.

So, this is a pre-order page on target.com Unfortunately, it won't fill the order unless you buy $25 or more. I'll wait till this gets closer. But still, seems to be coming along.

I just saw you can now preorder on Amazon and I believe iTunes if you prefer over Target.

OK,

So this tweet claims the 2050 movie is now released. Anyone with Amazon Prime have a look? The DVD I ordered from target was tagged as delayed.

I pre-ordered the DVD on Amazon, and it should be coming tomorrow. It looks like it's also available digitally on Prime Video to rent or buy.

So I obtained the movie through the torrents, though my DVD should be here soon too.

The fembots are hot. There are no malfunction scenes and only one maybe shutdown in my skim.

Fembots are in about 1/3 of scenes. The fembots are nicely "Stepford-ian" for those (like me) who are into that kind of thing. Quinn seems to sit around blandly smiling until her owner asks her for something.

The film seems to be actually "robot-positive" with the motto seemingly being "live with them, take them to your significant other and have a threesome" or something. I skim past non-fembot scenes. The plot of this film literally could fit perfectly into the stories section here.

We stumbled on this amazing thread, and even posted about it on our Instagram page, trying to find anyone who could track you guys down so we could thank you for your interest and enthusiasm! And for the fact that you actually purchased the film, we are pleased and thankful for your support! We are glad that our film somehow checked off many of your personal, nuanced preferences for the genre, which is very difficult for any publicly released piece of art to do. We thank you again and hope that you continue spreading the word. If there is anything we can do for you let us know!

With gratitude,

Team 2050
;)
