For 65 we go from 1997's story of genetic engineering and human determination GATTACA starring Ethan Hawk and Uma Thurman to the latest movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas.

For 64 I look at two smaller, recent (2015) science fiction films that have a lot more to say that any 250 million dollar blockbuster you could name. First Alex Garland's AI film Ex Machina starring Domnhall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander and then Jennifer Phang's tale of the future of work, women and humanity Advantageous starring Jacqueline Kim and James Urbaniak.
Both fine movie, both well worth watching.
This time around Grant Watson and I recorded live at Continuum 11 - the Melbourne annual science fiction convention. Nominally we were supposed to talk about The Age Of Ultron but we ended up at Adam Sandler, Orson Welles and other subjects of interest. Also, I presented Grant the box of goodies he won by being part of the Patreon Campaign.
Grant's own Patreon campaign for his movie writings is FictionMachine so go and support him too.
