Oscar Review: Her

Oscar Nominations:
Best Picture
My Review:
1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10
I wasn't very excited about seeing this movie at all.  I am not a fan in any way of Joaquin Phoenix.  Not entirely sure why, but I just don't like him on the big screen.  I'm also not really very into technology.  At least not the kind of technology present in this movie.  So going into this one, I was only watching it as an obligatory check off on my Best Picture nominee list.  Knowing that, I didn't totally hate the film.  It held my attention most of the time even though I thought much of it was quite strange.  I mean, dating an IOS (your phone/computer) is bizarre to me.  I just couldn't really grasp it  though it was more interesting to observe than I imagined.  Overall, I wouldn't recommend this one unless you love technology and all the possibilities it provides.
Have you seen Her?  What did you think?

  1. I'm a big Joaquin Phoenix fan, but I really had no desire to see this movie. The whole premise was very strange.

  2. One of my girlfriends saw the preview for this and immediately called me (on the way home from the theatre) to tell me how ridiculous it was and how disappointed she was with him as an actor to be picking up this! Its just weird...and not weird in a "well that is strange" way, but in a "what the hell are they thinking' kind of way.
