Ex Machina (2014)
Describing his house/research facility, Nathan says that there are so many fibre optic leads that you could "lasso the moon".
Nathan mentions this show and Captain Kirk at one point.
Not only is Captain Kirk mentioned, but there are several close parallels to this episode specifically.
The plot is about the creation of female robots. Ava has a selection of floral print dresses to wear, and long floral dresses were a noted costume feature of Stepford.
Referenced in dialogue by Nathan as he asks Caleb "Who you gonna call?" and then describes the film.
The final shots of both films feature a figure framed among reflected figures in a city street into which they abruptly vanish
The shaving foam Caleb uses is the same brand (Barbasol) and can design as the fake can used to transport the stolen dinosaur DNA in Jurassic Park.
Ava bears striking resemblance to the A.I. in Ghost in the Shell. Also, one of the bodies hidden in Nathan's room resembles the body Project 2501 used when it was brought to Section 9.
Ava's journey into the world echoes Anthy's.
Similar title, plot and female robot named "Ava".
