While Straight Outta Compton was making bank this weekend at the box office, I cranked up the A/C, cozied up on the couch and finally got around to watching the year’s most talked about sci-fi thriller Ex Machina. If you’re into super life-like robots with ulterior motives, choreographed dance breaks, a sucker for good art direction and set design, or simply an Oscar Isaac fan-boy like me (or all of the above), Ex Machina is for you. It only gets better when you find out that the house Isaac’s character lives in is actually a hotel you can stay at should you find yourself in the north-west village of Alstad, Norway. Check out the trailer for Ex Machina below, which you can rent now on iTunes.
