Title: TAU - followup
Post by: Art on July 15, 2018, 03:58:08 am
TAU turned out to indeed be the Sci-Fi - A.I. - Thriller I had hoped it to be.
It had a good storyline, plot and some great acting especially put forth by the very talented, Maika Monroe.

The movie dealt with a lot of the issues we think there might be with an advanced A.I. -Whether or not humans seem to matter to it remains to be seen.

All in all, I quite liked it!

Let yourself sit back and be entertained for just a short while and enjoy this nicely done movie!

Netflix has it available for those subscribers. (

It may be the best Netflix Original I have ever seen.

Maika Monroe stars in this sci-fi thriller as a woman taken captive by a tech entrepreneur
and Tau, his cutting-edge, artificial intelligence system. Kidnapped by an inventor who uses
her as a test subject to perfect his robotic AI, a street-smart young woman tries to escape
her high-tech prison.

Starring: Maika Monroe,  Ed Skrein,  Gary Oldman

The Guardian's review is pretty funny :)

I actually thought their review was pitifully inept suggesting that the reviewer had/has little experience or knowledge about the workings of AI, except what he might have gleaned from using Siri, Cortana, Google Now or Alexa.

The drama and horror that might befall the victim was quite agonizing and enhanced the character and her situation, yet the reviewer called it "moronic".

His review tossed all the popular catchwords and hyphenated phrases in an effort to make himself sound credible.

Lastly was his final slam against Netflix who should really take issue with him.

Overall, I did not find humor in his review at all but a rather lame attempt to be a film critic/reviewer. His opinion, for what it's worth is HIS opinion, not the peoples'.  Just MY opinion. - Lastly, why doesn't The Guardian's reviewers have their names shown as the Reviewer of an article? Hiding? hmmm..
