    This one Sartorius Mons has an intriguing premise and is fun to read, if a little over the top.

    Really? The only thing good about it was the better movie it could have been.

    Fortunately for those involved in the film, the weight of serious criticism doesn't agree with you.

    Ex Machina would have been much better if Gleeson's character ended up as the AI being tested. Machine uprising has been done to death.

    Just finished watching Netflix reasonably new series SPACE FORCE with Steve Carell

    As per the reviews not funny and I resent Steve Carell pretending he produced THE OFFICE

    THE OFFICE (UK) was / is a masterpiece by Ricky Gervais (not exactly my style of a comedy) completely stuffed up by Steve Carell

    Best joke - S01 Ep09 towards the end

    To make it a winner US should stop producing SPACE FORCE and hand it over to Ricky Gervais. Compensation for stuffing up THE OFFICE

    As far as sci-fi films go, I'd recommend A Quiet Place, starring Emily Blunt. A Quiet Place II is out now in theaters (also on Amazon Prime for new releases) which I have yet to watch, but planning on it, soon. There's something about the film though that I didn't like; there was a predictability about it perhaps, but the tension/suspense is very good. Imagine having to live the rest of your life in complete and utter silence, in order to stay alive. I'd say it borders on horror, so be prepared for some jump scares.

    It's not out, yet, and it may even be rubbish (I highly doubt it, though), but I am going to recommend "Dune"... only so that more people go to the box-office to watch it, and thereby ensure that the 2nd half is made - which bizarrely isn't yet guaranteed!!!
