M: Oh. My God. That is not a bat! Ugh! Or is it... rawr!
M2: Dogget's done gonna drown. Just pull Dogget on out of the river.
J: Soooo we're blogging now...
M: Hang on, I have to burp. [burps loudly] 'Scuse me!
J: What movie should we talk about first?
M: [dies laughing at X-Files]
J: We'll talk about Ex Machina.
M: Okay I'm ready now.
J: We were VERY excited to see this movie.
M: We were!
|Surprisingly, NOT the guy from 10 Things I Hate About You.|
M: You only get to write it if you can remember his name.
J: Ah... [pauses] I can do this...
M: We can come back to it. It'll come to you.
J: Dammit. Oscar Isaac!!
M: There it is! So the movie...
J: Was dark. And gritty. And intense. Well, not so much gritty as intense. It was really quite beautiful.
|I think you might be the droid I'm looking for.|
J: He was really the only brogue-able one, right?
M: Oscar Isaac? No. Domhnall Gleeson was. Oscar Isaac's Guatemalan.
J: Riiiiight, right right. No one technically had an accent, though.
M: Yeah. Right. Ahh, he played an American and very well, I thought. I only noticed the one slip-up, where he said he was "in hospital."
J: And I missed that totally, because I apparently was so engrossed by the movie. Or gullible. One of the two.
|Norway. Not Argentina. Norway.|
J: Mostly disturbing. The entire movie was one crazy mind game. And featured pretty much only three characters in one setting. Unbelievable.
M: It gave it that good theatrical quality.
J: It really did. I could imagine it on a stage for sure, but the place they chose was perfect.
M: Was it South America? I think it was Argentina or something.
J: Would you recommend this movie?
|"Tell me more about how you were in hospital."|
J: And much more open-ended in its implications. This really was a pretty fantastically pure artificial intelligence storyline.
M: It didn't feel that heavy-handed, either. Like you said, open-ended.
J: There was a lot to think about, and the AI wasn't even the most disturbing part.
M: [laughs] I did do that.
J: Truly, though, a really thought-provoking film.
J: I'd like to point out that we tried to blog two weeks ago, but some UVBLU got in the way. Hard.
M: Real hard.
J: Kitchen floor hard.
J: Don't we have something else to talk about?
M: We should do a new post.
J: Right-o! Be right back!
|Y-M-C-A! It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A!|
