    Knew it would be good and it was! Any complaints one might have are surely nit picking. Love that Apatow can make a script that's not his own FEEL like his own. Will watch again.

    They say the worst thing to be is average. Mediocrity is a tough road to go.

    Citizenfour 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 08 Dec, 2014

    If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.

    Must see for anyone. Period.

    Ex Machina 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    I saw this alone so there was no moment to converse openly about the implications of the Singularity and what it means to be conscious and "alive" - worthwhile topics evoked by this.

    Rather amazing CG and great performances all around. I read a lot of reviews having issue with the machine being female and, thus, automatically a fetish object... Not so sure about that myself. It may say more about the reviewer than the film implies. Tho I guess that's another topic best wrestled when viewed with others.
