Trivia

Director Garland has stated in interview that the recurring musical theme for Ava is not intentionally a play on the tones used to communicate with the visitors in Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), as asserted by many; though even the producer noted the incredible similarity upon hearing the theme.

Robots will take over the world
16 June 2015 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

This is the kind of movie I really enjoy when I think about science fiction. Movies that make you think if we should continue trying to progress even more. Are we not already smart enough with everything we have? With all our daily gadgets that we can't miss for one second. Do we really need artificial intelligence? Because let's face it, once that will be concrete then we won't do a thing by ourselves anymore. We will send our robots to our job, we will chose and model our life partner like we want them to be. The story of Ex Machina might be futuristic but I certainly can imagine it like that in the future. All actors were good in their respective roles. For a movie that is filmed at the same spot all the time you certainly don't get bored for a second. Nice science fiction like there should be more of them.
