Despite my immediate thoughts on watching the trailer for Her as being very weird, over time I was hearing pretty good stuff about the film. The other night my wife and I got to sit down to watch it. My original thoughts reigned true. I found Her to be weird with zero entertainment value. I found Her to be pathetic prophecy. I hope like hell, our future does not look like what this film depicts.Currently Her is science fiction, but it teeters on reality and we could see this artificial intelligence sooner than later. Obviously Her was inspired by Siri. But taken to the next level of the voice having reason and emotions and Gawd forbid, feelings. I did not watch the whole thing mainly because it bordered to many times on being boring. Listen, most of the screen time is watching Joaquin Phoenix character face talking to disembodied voice. I did not find that entertaining, despite some of the intriguing ideas discussed.And an unexpected distraction quickly popped up that watered down any enjoyment in the film, which there was not. Jaoquin Phoenix character wears glasses. I immediately noticed his obsession of pushing them on his face. In my mind it was an obsession because he did it so much. It’s kind of like one of my co-workers here at work. He constantly sniffs. Mostly little sniffs, but constantly. Like every minute or so. It’s really just a nuance, but it’s so unusual, it just becomes ‘loud’. Same with Phoenix pushing up his glasses. Either it’s just a by-product of Phoenix character wearing the glasses and not use to them, or it was a very deliberate action by the actor or director. I tend to think it was the later, but have no clue why it was important.Bottom line… I found Her to be sad (pathetic), mildly boring and contained a distraction that just made me turn it off half way through. It’s not for me.
