I did not look up anything about the movie producer, budget, etc. In fact, I may have
assumed it was a made for Amazon flick. Well you know, some movies don't do much
in regards to advertising. The main actor, I think is rather well known to some but I
was not familiar with his name. I can't say that I have or have not saw a movie with
him in it before this one.
If there is a movie I am really interested in watching, I don't do jigsaw puzzles at the
Often I will turn on a movie that I don't think I will like much while I do work on a jigsaw
puzzle. For a real example, 'The Dead' and 'City of the Dead'......my gosh do NOT watch
those movies! The only good thing about 'City of the Dead' was the main character as he
was a rather famous actor many years ago. There is absolutely no way that I could sit
and look at that movie. I listened to it, that was it.
Same goes when I turned it on 'Archive'. It wasn't anything I had heard of and I wasn't
sure I would be interested in it. Plus, it was a slow moving movie. No consistent action.
No real apparent drama. Just a guy running around making robots.
I guess the ending a few minutes before the ending of Archive. It flashed back so many
times of the car accident, I thought 'I bet it is him that is dead and not her'. It was a
super cool ending!
Yep, my same thoughts. The guys that did the visit 'Melvin' and someone else, must
have actually been the funeral directors!
He had invented something that I think he referred to as the 'box'. What it did was
allow the dead to stay alive for a short time after their death. The foolery here was, they
did not state 'how long' they would live after death. We know from the ending, he was
alive in the artificial state, for approximately two or three years. We know this because
after death, she was carrying his child for 9 months, and holding the child at the funeral.
The child looked to be maybe two or three years old. Perhaps as long as 4 or 5 years
he was kept in that state of existence.
The charade of Melvin visiting is confusing. Also, the case he was told not to open but
only when necessary. This all seems to have something to do with state of being and
the near ending of it.
I understood the robots to an extent. The one that drowned itself, was jealous. But,
here again, there was the robot that had the mentality of a child. So here again, it
makes one look back and wonder since his wife really did have a child after his death.
It was also confusing about the human looking robot. I guess he had perfected her
to take on the role of his wife but she did not have the entire mental capacity. He
then had to kill off her brain box (lol) and put the complete brain box into it.
I guess everything he was doing, was not reality. Kind of like being in a dream state.
And the real clincher is, he created it himself.
