Movies are the number one escapist entertainment. Some people watch it for its sheer ridiculousness and entertainment value; others watch it for the sake of art; while others watch it for the thought-provoking messages. There is this one trope in Hollywood or generally in movies that you either love or hate; and that is a Deus Ex Machina. A Deus Ex Machina is an unexpected power or event saving a seemingly hopeless situation.

Take the “Top 10 Deus Ex Machina Moments” as WatchMojo list down some of the most notable scene in Hollywood movies where the deus ex machina is so conveniently used (or more likely abused). What do you think of using the deus ex machina in films or specifically the titles featured on the list? Was it justified or was this lazy writing at its finest?
