Me and my robot
28 April 2013 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

In the future a child is given a pet robot by his warring parents. Before long the neglected child grows tired of Blinky the robot and begins to play unkind games on it. It all ends in tears.

This was a decent enough, if unremarkable, little short. The robot is easily the best character, although the child actor is incredibly convincing as an annoying little brat. Mostly, this is a showcase for the animation of Blinky. We also get to see an unusual scene where Blinky and the boy pass by another android in the street, with a future city-scape in the distance. Although it isn't a sequence that has much relevance to the plot-line it's probably the most memorable moment in the film. As short films go though, this isn't too bad. The ending is quite amusing as well.
