Suffice it to say, the tech stuff is pretty cool, quite believable and hopefully just a few years away. The emotional attachment? Maybe that can wait a little while, but you know it could and probably will happen someday. But since this is a love story, it becomes a challenge to keep the conversation, between a guy we see and a girl we don’t, interesting. The good news is, it’s handled masterfully. In fact, it makes you wonder if a relationship like this could actually work. Spike Jonze certainly makes a compelling case with this engaging, thought-provoking, futuristic film simply called “Her.”...

Some might argue with the science of the movie, but Spike Jonze’s allegorical tale is a marvel, with a great script and thought–provoking story that is not as far–fetched as it might sound. It took several awards during awards season, and deserved every one of them. A bit outside the norm of traditional entertainment; if your tastes run toward the adventurous, give it a try...

I decided to take a chance on show just because the idea of falling in love with a man made artificial intelligence that I saw on the trailers really intrigued me. I knew this was R rated going in but i was hoping it might be only a single use of the F-word... (like in the King's speech) but in the first 10 minutes of this visual AND verbal PORN film (if that long!) that word was repeated by cute little animated video game characters and orgasm craving women's voices...more times than I even wanted to keep track of! And then with the nudity of a pregnant woman i had had more than i was willing to put up with before I even got to the love story, and I walked out. In my opinion Love stories don't need to be wrapped around that kind of trash. ...I went to see this on "Dollar night" at my local theater and I felt like it was a rip off at that price!!! If you have any moral standards at all don't waste your money or your time on this garbage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!April 11th, 2014 · Details

Many a tech fan, over the years, may have casually declared his love for this or that cutting-edge gadget. But all would have to take a backseat to Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), the main character in the quirky romantic drama "Her" (Warner Bros.)...

Jonze’s story may be set in the future but it is an ancient one, going back to the original Greek myth about the sculptor who fell in love with the statue he made and whose name became the title of Shaw’s play. It is an eternal story because it is a more extreme version and thus a powerful metaphor about the risks and pleasures of intimacy. Jonze tells that story here with great sensitivity and lyricism, the kind of artistry that machinery can never replace...

An austere film of heartache and self-assessment, it has an aching loneliness about it that only a movie about a man who falls in love with a sentient computer-generated voice and mind could manage... See Full ReviewClick here to read the full review
