While I eventually became uninterested in the original X-Men movies, X-Men: Apocalypse now has me excited and curious to see where this franchise might go, how screenwriters will weave the storyline into recent history, and how its talented cast might reinvent and deepen their characters.

With two voices or instruments, it's easier to hear what each is doing separately as well as the sum total: melodies and countermelodies, synchronic and diachronic, horizontal and vertical. Which is all to say, some pretty cool duo recordings have crossed under my lintel of late.

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.

As the film's title implies, there's a fair amount of violence in this movie, but it's not the kind of bloodbath we're used to seeing in modern movies. Instead, there's a feeling of danger that hangs over every scene right from the beginning.
