As usual, Walter, you've posted another good 'un. I have not seen Interstellar, but as soon as my arrangements in life are settled, I certainly look forward to it. Ex Machina also is on that list. (So, I take it that my post still fits in this thread. But I am still reading the rest of it.)
I'd say the thread has mutated a bit, but I believe everyone posting is a big SF fan, so fine by me.
I think (and hope) you will enjoy both of those features. One other film that comes to mind of recent vintage is The Martian. The film closely hews to the novel by Andy Weir. (There are some changes that make sense, to me, in terms of adapting the work to the screen.) It didn't really grab me during my initial viewing; but it has grown on me over subsequent viewings (it is on cable quite a bit.) The production design and the overall execution of the film are quite solid and I think it is probably the best film that Ridley Scott has directed since 2001's Black Hawk Down. (Not really a fan of his revisitation of the Alien franchise.)
