Movie – Her: A-

While the story flowed along the normal lines of a relationship drama, the film was really more of a philosophical treatise. Using such an archetypal approach was probably part of the point, actually, and the obvious parallels to contemporary relationship issues fell into place easily, but it lingered at times and failed to stay consistently engaging. Everything was visually stunning and beautifully shot though. I’m also into The Singularity as of late, so this approach to the concept pleased me, as most are more anti-AI.

Movie – The Master: C

With all the competent film technique and acting prowess this film flung at me, you think I’d like it more. But alas, nothing significant caught my attention. I think I wanted a harsher attack on scientology. Not that it portrayed the subject lightly. It just meandered a bit too much for my tastes.
