Siri is strongly opinionated when it comes to movies
We all know that Siri isn't always the humble personal assistant that Apple portraits it to be. Besides answering your questions about the distance to the moon and the score from last night's match, she also appears to be quite opinionated when it comes to movies.

It turns out that Siri is especially fond of sci-fi movies featuring exciting stuff like A.I, cyborgs and... you guessed it - intelligent assistants. For example, here's Siri's description about Blade Runner: "It's about intelligent assistants wanting to live beyond their termination dates. That doesn't sound like too much to ask." Entertaining stuff, right? Check out the following gallery for more funny responses by Siri to questions about other sci-fi movies. By the way, if you've also witnessed Siri come up with unexpected answers to your questions, feel free to share them in the comments below!

Stupid Siri, she'd better concentrate her efforts on looking for stallions, that's much more fun LOL

Imagine that! An assistant that falls asleep during one of the best movies ever made - Inception is definitely not intelligent!

totally agree bro. its not even cute. its actually one of best movies ever made but on the other hand really tests your brain to understand it. what else can you expect from apple.. P.S. - Chris Nolan is a genius.

Wow. You guys really don't know how to take a joke. I'm pretty sure the "falling asleep" part was a joke because the movie dealt with dreams.

lol Why do I think it's REALLY Apple's opinions not Siri's? Ohh & Siri is wrong, I think she meant Ex-Governor of California.

Isn't it more accurately Wolfram Alpha's opinions?

Apple has a good bit of preprogrammed responses.. grab an iPhone and ask it what the best phone in the world is ;)

Summer Glau, also of Firefly/Serenity fame, as well as a few other things. Played a very short-lived character in Dollhouse.

Very giMMiCky ....... as always. The only response SiRi ever gave me was, "that is a conversation for another day."

One of the reasons I like Google Now more than Siri, just answer the question without the sad comedy tacked on. More information, less fluff please.

A few lines from IMDB. Oops did I gave a point to Apple Developers?

IMDB... Amazon owns that. Oopps. I guess Apple has to start their own movie database from scratch.
