13. “The Greatest Weird Scene Ever” – Ex Machina (2015)

Considering not a week goes by that someone doesn’t send me a .gif from this moment you all knew this would make an appearance; it’s completely coincidental that it’s lucky 13. I remember the sheer happiness and confusion at first watching this moment. Like any good mad scientist, Nathan (Oscar Isaac) doesn’t always have the sharpest grip on reality, if he ever did to begin with, and thus we get this deliriously off-base moment as delusion as it is amazing. Does it add anything to the plot? It’s both nothing and everything!
