Ask Siri about your favorite movie



It turns out Apple's voice-activated personal assistant can do more than find you the closest Vietnamese restaurant and crack jokes about opening your pod bay doors. Siri's also an amateur film critic, The Verge noted yesterday.

Ask her, "What's the 1999 movie The Matrix about?" and she might tell you, "Something about reality, and black clothing." She apparently really liked the performance by the USS Enterprise's ship computer in the 2009 Star Trek reboot, and warns that Pixar's Toy Story has people in it — "but they're just animations."
