Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Ex Machina

Ex Machina

I used the German movie poster because it was better than the others I found.  Besides, the film isn't just about Ava.  It is -- but, it isn't.  It's about Isaac's character just as much - the foil being Gleeson's.

I liked this film a lot.  It's shot beautifully, artfully.  The script doesn't allow for idiots, which I particularly admire.  It's got a great feel to it.

It is still completely predictable for someone who has read a lot of Sci-Fi like myself.  I imagine for someone who doesn't really delve into hard Sci-Fi that it would be creepy and awesome all at the same time.   I didn't see any stretches here in this story - but it didn't need any.  It's a tight compact tale and it's effective.  

I'm still waiting for something to wow me.  Ex Machina didn't - but I'm a particular audience.  I'd still highly recommend it.

Mad Max Fury Road - yes, it's as good as the hype
