I know I've scoffed at "The Singularity" before, but it sure seems movie-wise like we've achieved something like that. Someone has created a 10 minute compilation of a Russian dubbed Indian robot clone movie that... well... Those Indian filmmakers have more awesome in their left nostril than Michael Bay ever will.

I think this is the trailer, Shankar's The Robot. Here's the first 10 minutes of that compilation. And I mean "awesome" in that 13 year old sort of way.

But, really, why do people even bother with effects films any more? This shows that it has been done. Period. We have reached the effects films and awesomeness singularity.

Admittedly, having been stuck in countries where the only thing on the hotel TV room are Bollywood hits, I have developed an affectation. They are a bit like old USA musicals, larger, shinier and more colorful than life.

This looks more like a Saturday morning cartoon parody..

This trailer for Shankar's Robot promises "The Biggest Spectacle Ever". Summer blockbusters are over. Period.
