LAMBCAST #356 EX MACHINA MOTM

by Jay Cluitt · January 11, 2017 · Featured, LAMBcast, MOTM, MOTM Champions, Podcasts · No Comments

It seems very fitting that the show upon which we discussed Ex Machina, a film about the testing and issues involved with Artificial Intelligence, was fraught with so many technical difficulties. Dropped guests, lost connections and dying batteries led to one of the more eventful recordings, and that can mean only one thing – more outtakes!

Jay Cluitt was joined by the film’s champion, Kristen Lopez, along with Nick Rehak, Sean Homrig and Nikhat Zahra to talk about Alex Garland’s recent sci-fi directorial debut, touching on everything from Jay’s apparent heartlessness, Nick’s inventive swearing vocabulary and Kristen’s secret love for Oscar Isaac that she’s never mentioned to anyone before, ever.

Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a couple of games of Last Lamb Standing.
