Movie Reviews: Ex Machina + 4 others

Ex Machina (2013)
Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander star in this tale of AI. Caleb (future ‘Star Wars’ star Gleeson) visits his tech boss Nathan at his remote high-tech lair and meets android Ava (Vikander). Nathan (future ‘Star Wars’ annoyance Isaac) annoys. A female assistant lurks and is ill-treated. Nathan is mannerless. Caleb is uneasy. I don’t find any of them an engaging personality. A social evil is at work and there is ongoing danger. There is endless talk and provocative assertions and unsavoury implications. It leads to inevitable distress and bleak prophecy.

Best Lines:
“We’ve been flying over his estate for the past 2 hours.”

“What building?”
“Follow the river.”

“You may now enter the residence.”

“The ability to attach words and structure.”

“Synaptic tree structure.”

“An upright ape living in dust with crude language and tools. All set for extinction.”

Unstable (2009)

The Wiz (1978)

The Warriors (1979)
