  • Ex Machina 2015

    ★★★½ Rewatched 28 Jan, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Plot holes! Plot holes, I say!

    If Kyoto was a fully-functioning AI capable of stabbing her master, why did she wait until now to do it?

    If Nathan is so obsessed with documenting everything, why did he wait until when he did to place battery powered cameras in Ava's room when they were getting power cuts?

    If Nathan goes into Ava's room constantly, why didn't she do anything to kill/injure him? Like, she had a pen. Just stab him.


  • Upstream Color 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 27 Jan, 2015 3

    A metaphysical, surreal and incredibly poignant look at the way we interact with each other as a species, and how we're connected.

    It's science fiction, but not in any way I've seen before. It could possibly be a new genre entirely. I won't lie and say I understood everything, but there's a certain mood and atmosphere of warmth and transcendence that has only ever been matched by Blue in terms of experience. In that way I can't give it anything…

    I don't get it.


    I don't get it.

    At least give it a rating.

    But I don't get it.

    Was it good?


    Would you recommend it?

    I don't know.

    How does that work?

    I don't know.



    Just give it 2 1/2 or something.

    I can't.


    Because it's good.

    Then what's the issue?

    I don't know.

    For fuck's sake.

    I don't understand it. It confused me.

    Just your plebian mind.

    Fuck you.

    Fuck you.…
