When I interview artificial intelligence researchers for Tech Insider stories, the conversations almost always turn to science fiction.

I’ve seen a few movies about artificial intelligence (AI), like the “Terminator” and “The Matrix,” for example, but I hadn’t seen “2001: A Space Odyssey,” considered by many I’ve spoken with as the pinnacle of sci-fi. (Marvin Minsky — one of the pioneers of AI — was even an adviser to the movie’s production team.)

So I decided to spend a weekend binge-watching every acclaimed AI movie I’d missed. Taking tips from colleagues and The Guardian’s list of the top movies about AI, I lined up seven films.

I didn’t begin with any expectations or criteria, but by the end — red-eyed and suffering from a little bit of cabin fever — I realized that one movie on my list offered the most realistic vision of the future of AI, and it was a cartoon.

Read on to see how these iconic titles jibe with modern science. (Warning: Spoilers ahead.)
