More recent Netflix additions:


  • Tau sucks. Someone watched Ex Machina and wanted to make a film exactly the same, but obviously they couldn’t copy it too closely, so they just made a lamer version of it instead. The plot is almost identical: reclusive genius, brings someone in, mysterious and secrets, trapped in a house, teaching AI, becomes it’s friend, everything goes wrong, AI escapes.

    By itself, it’s a bit dull, zero actual creativity or plot. There’s zero twists, zero suspense, and a score of zero out of 10. Do yourself a favour and watch Ex Machina instead. It’s a much better film.

    Netflix is pouring money into shows and movies, but they mostly suck. There are a few here and there that are okay, but most aren’t.
