“Why did you build me to die maker?" The Script Podcast is back! CHAPPIE is the latest dystopian sci-fi allegory from South African auteur Neill Blomkamp. On this episode of The Script we discuss the self-aware robot movie sub-genre, how all great stories employ surrogate family dynamics, and also how to spell anthropomorphize. Does this film suffer from “protagonist confusion” ? Is this a low end sci-fi thriller or a fancy coming of age drama? Will David cut Corey’s microphone on his first podcast appearance? Chappie’s got a bigger heart than Robocop— but not a bigger gun.
