If people are genetically "perfected" to the point you visualize, they
won't be interested in old movies whether they are violent or not. They
won't be able to conceptualize jealousy, and thus be unable to comprehend
the motivations of the characters. Would you enjoy watching a movie about
Chimpanzee family life?

AI like you see in the movies will be a reality fairly soon. Read some of
Michio Kaku's work on antigravity and teleportation for a reality check.
