    The Empire Strikes Back


    Still the absolute best in the trilogy. The first 37 minutes alone are better than the prequels combined.

    Ex Machina


    We fear what we don't understand, and the more we don't understand, the less we ask questions.

    Alex Garland's directorial debut has the above statement running through it's veins. Caleb, a bright and prodigious young computer software coder, wins a competition to spend a week in the company of Nathan, the CEO of large technological corporation - who's idiosyncrasies aren't too far removed from those of Tony Stark's - who has been playing deus ex machina in his spare time:…

    Lindsay Anderson's 'If....' Could quite possibly be the unofficial prequel to Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange'
