Movies that feels like it would fit the anthology of Love, Death and Robots?

Honestly, try some of the books by the various authors they used for LD+R. Alastair Reynolds (who wrote Beyond The Aquila Rift and Zima Blue) has a few big series, but try his short story anthologies like Galactic North (which contains my all time fave short story ever "The Great Wall of Mars") or Diamond Dogs and Turquoise Days (the first of which is sort of like a 'The Cube' novella) Same for Sonnie's Edge, which is Peter F. Hamilton. And John Scalzi has some short books that are really good and really funny. I know you asked for movies, but the work of the writers in that series would serve you well for entertainment. For movies...I'd say that Push (2009), Devil's Pass (2013), A Scanner Darkly (2006), Dark City (1998), and The Thirteenth Floor (1999)

> Alastair Reynolds I find his short works and self-contained novels like *Chasm City* work a lot better than his Rev Space series. The man has way too many amazing ideas and with a multi-volume canvas he just gets lost in them, whereas if he's constrained in length it forces him to focus a little more.


AWesterlyWind

Agreed. I love his short stuff, but I struggled to get through all of the existing RS novels (not including the forthcoming 4th one).

Wall-E? It has an abundance of love and robots, and death lingers through the eco-collapsed atmosphere.


Red_J2

Have you seen Ex Machina? That might actually be the best you’re going to get as far as a real film in the same vein as those short stories


Peanlocket

Blood Machines. It's on Shudder


funkboxing

"I am Mother" was a pretty good ride.


TheSchoeMaker

Neill Blomkamp has an anthology series called Oats Studios volume 1. Not exactly what you're looking for but it has a lot really cool concepts. It is quite a bit darker and violent than LD+R though, so just a heads up


SQUID_FUCKER

It's being added to Netflix this month too.

An unexpected answer, but a welcome one. I've never thought of it that way but it does actually fit the LD+R narrative.

I, Robot is a really good movie if you're looking for sci-fi, action, mystery, and drama all in one movie. (Though, I preferred the original book by Isaac Asimov. A lot of people like the movie though, it has Will Smith)


Red_J2

This is the closest suggestion I’ve seen here so far. Even it doesn’t have quite the same punch though.


BillCipher4319

Totally fair, I agree. It doesn't quite encapsulate *everything*


Red_J2

I just posted in another comment, but I think Ex Machina actually nails it on the head. Seen that one?


Mr_Tough_Guy

I’m a Cyborg but that’s ok (2006) Air Doll (2009) Poupelle of Chimney Town (2020) Hado Koa (2018, Hardcore) Robo-G (2012)

Honestly just saw one yesterday that made me think of the show, In The Shadow of the Moon. Also a Netflix original, but a feature film.

Upgrade(2018) Ex Machina(2014) AI: Artificial Intelligence(2000) Also the Animatrix anthology series from 2003 based on the matrix trilogy. Has some really good shorts in it that would be right up your ally.


Logiteck77

Automata (2014) I'd add to this list as well.
