They say that there are just seven distinct stories on the planet, told again and again in somewhat diverse ways, and observing some science fiction is sufficient to persuade you that this is a fact.
There’s a motivation behind why some banalities are adages in any case, on the grounds that they were splendid, however once in a while you’ve to realize when to give up.
All things considered, what are individuals going to recall later on: yet another attack motion picture, complete with flying saucers hanging over the White House, or something totally new and earth shattering?
Like, the Cantina Scene was splendid when Star Wars did it, however now, the “cutting edge, multi-species space bar” sounds something of a tired in-joke.
Try not to misunderstand me, everyone cherishes a decent science fiction frolic. In all honesty, they can toss as numerous steampunk, tragic future, insidious AI and attractive outsider chick platitudes at us. What’s more, we’ll still go and see them. In any case, you know, a touch of creative energy would be pleasant once in a while and that begins with kicking out these buzzwords…
8. Highly Literal Robots
It was rather sweet when Data did it, and Drax gets a green signal in light of the fact that he’s not a robot, but rather if Siri can give you backtalk, a super-propelled AI without bounds will presumably comprehend what you mean when you instruct them to go stick their head up their can.
This figure of speech is for the most part an expansion of the Overly Literal Plot Device (“Let her go!”, “Alright then” *drops lady in trouble off a building*) and is basically the science fiction form of your educator crowing “I don’t have the foggiest idea, would you be able to?” when you request that and go to the lavatory.
Do you intend to let me know that the robot that has enough processing energy to figure each result of their abhorrent takeover of the world (or whatever) doesn’t realize that there is more than one intending to “Well, that is simply awesome”?
7. Scientists Elucidating Things With Daily Objects
Alright, Science Is Hard.
Fortunately enough for us masses, there will more often than not be a somewhat whacky researcher close by to clarify shockingly complex investigative ideas to us through the medium of salt and pepper shakers. This is some of the time alluded to as a Phlebotinum Analogy amongst snarky film faultfinders.
The scene will more often than not start with a touch of limitless techno jibber jabber, then a “hold up, what?” from some moron non-military personnel. Prompt the whacky science fellow clearing everything off the table and setting up a straightforward model utilizing whatever they can lay their hands on or, far and away superior, draw an unbalanced outline in the sand.
To truly pound the point home, you can likewise tail it with a “Let me get this straight… ” from the stupid non-researcher who will then continue to clarify the idea in significantly less complex term.
