Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is a day late and a dollar short -- actually, make that several seasons late, for anyone who watches the outrageously funny animated series, Archer.

Ex Machina Movie Review: Should We Be Scared?

There are many reasons to be impressed with Ex Machina, the recently released, exceptionally well-done sci-fi thriller directed by Alex Garland, starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander. Most notably, however, is its ability to be both ordinary and unique at the same time.

What makes a mind come alive? And how will you know when it's happened? Two new films -- one about the death of the factory school, the other about the dawn of artificial intelligence -- attempt to answer this question from radically different vantage points.

Marshall Fine

There are so many questions we don't seem to be asking right now about the arrival of these potentially intelligent machines. And that is the genius of Alex Garland's film Ex Machina, a must-see that is one of the best, smartest, and most elegant films about artificial intelligence ever made.
