The Weekender: God Bless the ‘Child’

Movie of the Week

Ex Machina
This one’s intrigued me for awhile. Alex Garland’s delivered something akin to Her meets The Island of Dr. Moreau. And my word, that cast. Oscar Isaac! Domnhall Gleeson! A robotic Alicia Vikander! This is one I don’t want to read anything about because it should be an unsettling experience.

Blu-ray Pick

The Babadook
