Transcendence [movie]

THIS WAS THE BEST SINGULARITY MOVIE IN A LONG TIME. THEY EVEN USED THE WORD. I THINK MAYBE I THINK AND TALK ABOUT IT LESS PARTLY BECAUSE I'M JUST OLDER NOW, AND NO ONE GETS INTO THAT STUFF AS MUCH AS WHEN THEY ARE 20. BUT I ALSO THING SOCIETY IN GENERAL ONLY COULD TALK ABOUT THAT IN A SHORT WINDOW, THERE WAS ONLY A FEW YEARS THAT PEOPLE TALKED ABOUT THE FUTURE AS WONDEROUS, GOOD OR BAD. PRE-1995 OR SO EVENTUAL NUCLEAR WAR WAS ASSUMED, POST 2001 SOME SORT OF GLOBAL WARMING/TERRORIST/POVERTY HELL FUTURE WAS THE NORM, 1997-2000 WAS THE ONLY TIME PEOPLE COULD WRITE ABOUT THE FUTURE BEING AMAZING, EVEN IF THE PLOT WAS ULTIMATELY THE SINGULARITY BECOMING A THREAT. BASICALLY EVERY SINGLE SINGULARITY STORY IS JUST THIS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJBleJJZixs

PS. 'WILL CASTER' IS SUCH A TERRIBLE PUN I'M REALLY HOPING IT'S NOT EVEN A PUN AND THEY DIDN'T REALLY MEAN THAT.
