I sorta just realized I should be posting trailers when I do these reviews…it’s a learning experience alright?!
 
So if you don’t know anything about this movie I’ll give a brief synopsis, but not too much because the movie is a mindfuck. (it’s one word spellcheck don’t you correct me)
 
Computer programmer Caleb Smith (Gleeson) wins a one-week visit to the isolated home of Nathan Bateman (Isaac), the CEO of a prestigious software company. The only other person there is Nathan’s servant Kyoko (Mizuno), who Nathan says does not speak English. Nathan has built a humanoid robot named Ava (Vikander) with artificial intelligence. Ava has already surpassed a simple Turing test; Nathan wants Caleb to judge whether he can relate to Ava despite knowing she is artificial.
Duh Oscar, computers and shit…
Thanks Wikipedia! I didn’t want to type all that out…
So the movie is an in depth look at what it means to be human and also why we should never, ever, ever build smart robots…I thought that was made clear from Terminator
Especially if it spawns something as awful as Genisys…

But maybe he saw Iron Giant and cried at the end like I did…I mean…got upset in a manly way?

I’m not crying…you’re crying…

But back to the film I’m suppose to be talking about…

The film focuses on the relationship between Ava and Caleb as Caleb attempts to determine whether Ava has a “soul” or not.
Despite the fact that he can clearly see her wires…

The movie is an interesting combination of science fiction and thriller that doesn’t fail to throw in an interesting twist or two. Speaking of twist, please enjoy this video of Oscar Isaac’s dance from the film.
