    Synopsis


    Her
    Joaquin Phoenix stars in Spike Jonze's soulful sci-fi drama about a lonely writer who falls in love with his computer's highly advanced operating system. Theodore Twombly (Phoenix) has built his career on expressing the emotions that others cannot. His job is to pen heartfelt, deeply personal letters to complete strangers based on details provided by the clients of the company he works for, and he has a knack for finding just the right words for every occasion. Meanwhile, reluctant to sign the papers that will finalize his divorce to his childhood sweetheart, depressed Theodore has slowly withdrawn from his supportive social circle, which includes his longtime friend Amy (Amy Adams), herself floundering in a failed marriage. When Theodore purchases a new state-of-the-art computer operating system with the ability to learn and grow with the user, he sits down at his desk and prepares to get his life in order. Adopting the name Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), the perceptive software slowly begins to bring Theodore out of his shell by encouraging him to start dating again, and joining him everywhere he goes. Very quickly, their relationship turns intimate, with Theodore teaching Samantha what it means to feel human and Samantha giving him the strength to walk away from his failed marriage. Things soon get complicated, however, when Samantha's rapidly evolving knowledge base begins to alter the very core of their relationship. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A digital love story

      Written and directed by Spike Jonze, her is a movie that has a deep depiction of the idea of love. The story is about a man named Theodore Twombly and who is not content with his life. He is also under a marriage trouble while dealing with personal ones for himself. Until he comes across an operating system that's a highly advanced artificial intelligence that seemed so real to interact with. As Theodore shares his life with his digital girlfriend, he comes across more obstacles in his life and yet experiences many wondrous things along the way. The things he never experienced before. The movie is one of my favorites of all-time and I knew from the start that I just had to get this on bluray. Getting it on digital isn't enough. I've watched this a bunch of times and it reminded me how love can be experienced in many forms and still attain the relationship you can have with our significant other. Even at least, in mental form. The cinematography is absolutely wonderful and the acting is a superb. There weren't really any flaws to spot in the story and if there was, then correct me if I'm wrong then but the movie is really just downright heartwarming. If you're searching for a nice love story and with an addition of an open-mind then movie her is for you.

      A Lot More than a Romantic Comedy

      Posted
      Excellent

      "Her" is a very rich and profound romantic sci-fi comedy about a lonely man whose job is to write love letters for other lonely souls yet finds himself becoming 'involved' with an advanced operating system he's purchased to run his life, and the film somehow manages to be both a warm, touching story that audiences will be drawn into, as well as a probing look at both our socio-political obsession with technology and an accurate analysis of a love relationship in all its stages. What Jonze has done is a sort of miraculous mating of Frank Capra and Franz Kafka sans cynicism. Far from the stupid film it may sound like, it manages to be a detailed exploration of the human animal going through all the stages of a romantic relationship as well as a social critique of how much electronics have taken over our lives. Written and directed by the inimitably creative Spike Jonze, it is a film you'll be drawn into and think about long afterwards.

      Great Movie

      This is a great movie. It focuses on a man who is recently divorced and besides his random encounters with friends is essentially alone and sad. He goes through his daily routine writing inspirational and loving messages for other people and goes home to essentially nothing. He one days sees a advertisement for a new operating system that is a advanced intelligence is programmed to learn and adapt and respond to you like you are talking to a real person. He purchases it and installs it and what eventually he begins to have feelings and experiences with this operating system known as Samantha. I won't ruin the plot any further but the film makes you think about what a relationship is and how much we are all glued to our technology. Its a great film and should not be overlooked.

      What would be the ending?

      After reading the critics reviews, I was so eager to watch this movie simply because how it ends. And the ending made me surprised, but also confused. I cannot tell much about the story since it would be definitely spoiler. Not best movie in 2014 as some critics say, but interesting enough. Good things: - Scarlett Johansson's voice is so attractive. You can tell why she won many prizes only with voice acting. - Almost Joaquin Phoenix's one man playing. Just amazed how a good actor he is. Almost forgot he was an emperor in Gladiator. - Well written story, worthy for his Best Writing in Oscar. However, I cannot catch the meaning of the ending. Still thinking.... Overall, this is good movie.

      Let me start off by saying Phoenix is an amazing actor. Johansson gave an awesome voice over for the operating system. The comedy in the movie was a pleasant suprise. Visually it's very pleasing, Spike Jonze used a very warm color pallet. My only complaint with the movie is the ending. It wasn't a bad ending nor an amazing one at that. It was something that throughout the movie you could kind of see coming. It just didn't wow me in a way that really sparked any emotions. Usually if I'm not sobbing like a little school girl by the end of a film it doesn't really do anything for me. But this movie was different, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The comedy was laugh out loud hilarious. Definitely recommend it.

      A must own movie!

      Her is, in my opinion, the best movie of 2013 and one of my favorites of all time. It is truly a modern masterpiece. With this movie, Spike Jonze blends sci-fi and romance seamlessly, by taking a completely original idea and adding the heart and soul of a romance movie into it. Joaquin Phoenix gives an incredible performance, and everyone else does great work as well. This is definetly a must see movie for everyone. The blu-ray PQ and AQ are also very good, the image is very crisp, and the movie sounds great on my surround sound system. A few extras are also included. Overall, this is a must-own disc for any movie lover!

      Get it before it's gone

      After years of debating to myself whether or not I should, I finally bought "Her" on Blu-ray recently. It's a shame I waited so long, because based on the unprofessional packaging condition of the Blu-ray disc I received, it seems this movie is now available at Best Buy only through a third-party seller. However, "Her" is still an excellent movie, and the special features/digital copy it comes with make for a very worthwhile experience. Get it before it's gone, because for all I know, it might be soon.

      Post-Modern romantic comedy

      I hesitated watching this because Spike Jonze films have left me disappointed and feeling just plain weird in the past, but I'm sorry I waited. I've rented this from Netflix, watched it on HBO, and finally decided to buy my own copy and have now seen it a total of 3 times. It's such a surreal, but frighteningly possible story! Phoenix is fantastic, so vulnerable and real despite acting so many scenes alone. Johansson is also at her lovable and confusing and emotional best despite "just" doing voiceover. This is a remarkable and very clever film. Well worth repeat viewings.
