Her Synopsis

Set in the Los Angeles of the slight future, Her follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.

From the unique perspective of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze comes an original love story that explores the evolving nature—and the risks—of intimacy in the modern world.

This Week In Home Entertainment: Her, Eastbound And Down And More This Week In Home Entertainment: Her, Eastbound And Down And More
The future is frequently shown to be a less-than-idyllic place, but in Spike Jonze’s Her, the future is a place dominated by technology, filled with new fashions, and portrayed as a time that is very clean. It’s not the look or feel of the world in Her that is the important part, however. Instead, an unconventional relationship is at the heart of Her.

While the status of Her being a comedy or a drama is one that could be argued, apparently the films dramatic tendencies were enough to help the movie shake any comparisons to its doppelganger. The whole case becomes clearer when you read the further details provided in an earlier report TMZ provided when the case was first filed.

I saw Her a couple more times, and each time, it was a new movie for me. Jonze’s film is soft but not quiet, funny but not uproariously silly, kind but not sentimental.

My argument is that the category should have shifted from five nominees to three. That would increase competition. Imagine how tight this year’s Oscar race would be if Academy voters could only choose between Gravity, 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle? Now THAT’s a race!

The jokes are obvious in spots, picking on the high-waisted fashion of Spike Jonze’s futuristic love story, or lampooning the inherent creepiness of Hill’s character – and, by extension, Joaquin Phoenix’s character – having sex with an operating system.

This is one of the better years, however, particularly considering at some points the category would have only two to three nominations overall. That wasn’t the case in 2013, as the voters truly spread the wealth, resulting in five very diverse, unexpected selections.

Every year, the Academy Awards and its voters honor screenwriters old and new by handing out the statue for the Best Original Screenplay, often while employing a lackluster script of its own. While it remains to be seen what kind of material host Ellen DeGeneres will be given, you can bet than the stage direction “This is the part where you dance” will show up more than a few times. Probably in between jokes about Christian Bale’s gut, or his beard, or his hair.

Last year was a pretty fantastic one for movie music. Directors like David O. Russell, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino and Ben Affleck made not only fantastic films, but also beautifully crafted soundtracks that blended perfectly with the story and visuals on screen. As a result, 2013 had a lot to live up to, but looking back on the last twelve months reveals that this year’s crop of filmmakers were more than up for the task.

Nominations for the SAG Awards never match nominations for the Academy Awards completely, but there is usually quite a bit of overlap. Last year, for example, both of the male categories matched 4/5. So, while the average person might not even watch the ceremony when it’s aired on TNT and TBS in January, if they’re into the Oscars at all, they should take a long hard look at the nominees that were released this morning

The American Film Institute tends to play a little more fast and loose with its annual end of the year best movies list when compared against other organizations. Usually, there’s at least one selection odd enough to cause a double take. Last year, for example, more than a few heads were turned by the surprising selection of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.

In the film, Joaquin Phoenix plays a heartbroken man who enters into a relationship with the bodyless voice of a new computer operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson) that isn’t just artificially intelligent, but is also interesting and seemingly capable of emotions. Now I’m not trying to say all of the girls I talked to in my teens were comparable to mindless robots, but the trailer evokes the same feeling of “anything can happen here and now.”

Well, that ended quickly. Just as buzz was starting to finally build for Scarlett Johansson thanks to her much-hyped performance in Spike Jonze’s upcoming Her, the starlet’s hopes for one of the movie industry’s biggest awards has been dashed on a technicality. Because she doesn’t actually appear in the film, like as a physical body, she doesn’t qualify for any of the acting categories at the Golden Globes.
