  • Ex Machina

    Ex Machina 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 05 May, 2015

    For my money, Alex Garland's directorial debut is one of the most fascinating sci-fi films in a while. Garland, previously known for writing films like 28 Days Later and Never Let Me Go, has crafted a knockout piece of science fiction that tackles the oft-discussed topic of artificial intelligence in a different, provocative way.

    The story set-up of Ex Machina is deceptively and fiendishly clever in its simplicity: Domhnall Gleeson's programmer Caleb is brought out to the home of his…

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 22 May, 2015

    "What a lovely day" is Mad Max: Fury Road's most marketed phrase, but the one that most exemplifies it is "We are not things." This fourth film in the famous Australian franchise is a $150 million arthouse post-apocalyptic spaghetti western, and a fabulous one at that. George Miller is as good as he's ever been behind the camera with this intense experience that turns many elements of the action genre on its head. The acting is top-notch -- including from…
