Dial M For Melissa

Review: You'll Fall In Love With 'Her'

Falling in love is uniquely human. Or is it? Could you teach a program to love? Writer/director Spike Jonze doesn't attempt to answer this question, rather he simply follows the man who falls in love with Her (an advanced operating system).

In a future where technology has become even more commonplace, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) has a job where he writes "handwritten" letters. At one point he reveals that he's been writing letters for a man to his wife for a number of years. He's written hundreds, maybe thousands of letters, all seemingly intimate. He's lonely, as he's separated from his wife (Rooney Mara) who accuses him of not being in touch with his emotions. Perhaps it's quite the opposite, he feels so much emotion at work, that he doesn't know how to express it personally anymore.

Second Screen Live: The Nightmare Before Christmas - Would you do it?

Beginning October 18 in select theaters, The Walt Disney Studios invites fans to join Jack Skellington for a spooktacular special engagement of Second Screen Live: The Nightmare Before Christmas, an interactive moviegoing experience.

Honestly, my first reaction to Second Screen Live was pure disgust. I am entirely against texting during a movie, and this seemingly would be an extreme violation. However, upon watching the ad, I realized that for movies you love, this would be the ultimate fandom. I attended a Lebowski Fest once, and absolutely loved watching it with a group of people who spoke with the movie. It brought us all together. I've also love special features and trivia tracks when available on DVDs/Blurays. So bring it on. I may not make this one, but I look forward to ones in the future. What do you think? Would you enjoy this?
