Siri Will Give You Her Snarky Opinion When You Ask About Robot Movies [Image]




With iOS 6, Siri gained some new super powers – like the ability to check on sports scores, make restaurant reservations, even find out info on movies. With  those new powers she also has some opinions about movies too.

For instance, ask Siri, “What’s Blade Runner about?” and she’ll shoot back by saying “It’s about intelligent assistants wanting to live beyond their termination dates. That doesn’t sound like too much to ask.” She does it for other robot movies too.

We asked Siri what 2001: A Space Odyssey is about and she told us that “it’s about an assistant named HAL who tries to make contact with a higher intelligence. These two guys get in the way and mess it all up.” She also says that Wall-E is “about two inarticulate yet intelligent assistants who compact trash and fall in love and save the world.”

Try it out on your iPhone to see for yourself. Have you found any other new Easter eggs like this with Siri?
