It’s a week of weird and yeah... just weird. The sexual side of the science world takes the reigns, as in the red corner we have the absolutely mad, and aptly named, ‘Weird Science’ (1985). The tale is as old as time: geeky boys want cool girls. Yet Weird Science has a twist, as these teenagers create a virtual woman using a computer and pick all their favourite ‘aspects’ of women they fancy in order to make their very own dream female.
While in the blue corner, Ex Machina (2014) follows Caleb, a programmer at a search engine company. Caleb is tasked by his billionaire boss to assess whether his humanoid robot is sentient. Cue – you guessed it –Caleb falling in love with the robot woman.
