In his directorial debut, Wally Pfister paints a peculiar and unsettling picture with Transcendence. The flick, which debuts today (April 18th) portrays Johnny Depp as Dr. Will Caster, a terminally ill scientist who downloads his mind into a computer. As Caster works toward his goal of creating an omniscient, sentient machine, a radical anti-technology organization fights to prevent him from establishing a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain.
Caster, whose name appears to be a play on words (“Will Caster”: one who “casts his will” on humanity) A genius scientist set on ruling the world?? A lot like Pinky & The Brain. Can you reproduce a human soul with a machine? Should you tinker with the work of creation? Whether you think of these questions as hackneyed or eternal – or both – may dictate how much you care about the story. If the film does not give you pause, perhaps the mindset of the commentators will. They appear to believe in transhumanism, even though they will most likely be denied the life extension technology.
Doomsday? Again? No. More like wicked Hollywood mind control at work. Yep, the entertainment industry is no stranger to government propaganda campaigns, and the latest Hollywood flicks are no exception.
A quick look at Transcendence trailer. (see below)
Transcendence reveals what appears to be another massive brainwashing campaign designed to prepare the American psyche for the next intentional release of something big….conveniently and subtly programming viewers into accepting the idea that it’s possible. (But I digress) This tactic is nothing new, of course. If you look back at the themes of major movie releases over the past several decades and compare them to what ends up taking place in the real world not too long after, it becomes eerily clear that Hollywood is deeply connected to the agendas of those that are now in control of various world governments, including the US government.
It’s not a conspiracy if it’s really happening, I’m just saying.
So, are you planning on catching this film? Have you already? Do share your thoughts below.
Is “Transcendence” any good?
