I soon found it wise not to check my watch while viewing director Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Hoping that a sizable chunk of time was bringing me nearer to film's end, I inevitably learned that scant milliseconds had passed between inquiries, which only added to the despair and boredom. Admittedly, there are a few good moments.

But then a true optimist could probably say the same about a stay on Devil's Island. So the short review is, unless you're a diehard fan or video games are your second language, save yourself.

It was in a diner late at night in a time long, long ago, after the bars had closed, when, opining about current events and the perceived circumstances of my reality, a waitress pressed her hands onto the counter, peered deep into my eyes and asked, "Who's to say what's real?"

Oddly, while he was doubtfully privy to said event, writer-director Alex Garland nonetheless expounds on the waitress' provocative query in "Ex Machina," his hypothetically enticing foray into artificial intelligence. It's the best science fiction to come down the cinema pike in a

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — French artist Henri Matisse once said "creativity takes courage." In the case of a new Berkshire County endeavor, some courageous and creative minds have come together to solve a pressing problem.

The problem? The lack of safe, fun, convenient places for single people to find potential partners. The solution? BerkshireFlirt, which seeks to connect Berkshire singles through events and social networking.

The creative minds behind BerkshireFlirt are, not surprisingly, creative people. Noel Henebury and Stephanie Mendoza both work at Barrington Stage Company. Julia Dixon is managing director of Berkshire Creative. And Jenn Gomez works for College

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — In the first part of the 20th century, Claude Flight and his disciples were doing some cutting edge work.

Literally.

Flight is an innovator and leader of a short-lived boom of linocut printmakers that thrived in London in the 1920s and '30s.

He and his contemporaries are celebrated in the Clark Art Institute's exhibit "Machine Age Modernism," on view in the Clark Center through May 17.

The show features colorful, intricate and often highly abstract images of everyday life in England between World Wars I and II. It also gives a sense of the political sensibilities of Flight and artists he mentored at London's Grovesnor School of Modern
