    Her

    30-something introvert (Joaquin Phoenix) falls in love with his computer's operating system. (Voiced by Scarlett Johansson.)

    The screenplay seems to have been written by someone in the throes of a breakup, who discovered Alan Watts during their quest for healing and self-discovery, and then attempted to say something profound about technology, human existence and relationships. On paper, it sounds like pretentious twaddle, right?

    But that'd be a reductive and dishonest way of describing this surprisingly touching gem.

    I half-expected a quirky romcom where "lonely guy meets manic pixie girl who brings him out of his shell and teaches him how to live." And initially that appears to be the case.

    But it's a beautiful, contemplative film that treats its characters as human beings, and portrays their relationships as living, breathing, believable entities. They ring true to an unsettling degree.

    Joaquin Phoenix is excellent, but Scarlett Johansson...!!! Oh my.
    Her disembodied voice somehow manages to be sexier than her actual physical self. I'm not even exaggerating.

    I haven't been this spellbound by an on-screen romance since WALL-E or even Lost In Translation.

    8/10

    Also, the film has tits in it.

    Anyone seen 'The Keep'? Everything about it is bizarre, but the cast is incredible. Very '80s.

    I've missed most of it and I'll not stay up for the rest, but is it worth catching up with?

    Size of screen doesn't normally make any difference with me (with a few notable exceptions like Gravity and Cloverfield, but I do like going to the cinema for the general atmosphere and social aspect.

    That said, I like poncey little cinemas where everyone is there to actually watch and enjoy the film, and they sell beer and artisan chocies and I can be the middle class film snob that I like to be in peace.
    When I do get dragged to the cinema, luckily I have a couple of Everyman cinemas near me in London - so I go there. You can drink beer during the screenings.
    Downside is it's full of snooty cunts eating olives and pizza off of chopping boards and guffawing over their glasses of wine, but at least they generally shut up during the film.
    Plus you get to sit on comfy sofas too.
    I like Everyman cinemas for the kind of films you can usually only see in non art-house cinemas like Batman or whatever. The prices are ridiculous but it is quite a nice experience.

    Phoenix in East Finchley is my favourite cinema.

    I watched The Thing again. Still my favourite movie. Even though I know what happens after seeing it so many times, I still love it. I doubt many horror films have such an effect after the first watch.
    I think it must be the combination of great acting, setting, storyline, and incredibly creepy soundtrack (they don't make them like that anymore), and the fact I still don't know when each member gets "Thing'd"

    I watched Her on a plane so my enjoyment of those scenes was hampered by the surprise of having tits appear on my screen in full view of the little children sitting next to me. It was a very complex emotion and I felt like a sexual deviant.
    I'll have to watch it again in a more private setting, I guess.

    Nothing worse than trying to crack one out on a plane next to a kid when watching porn.

    Safety Not Guaranteed - 7/10

    Really enjoyable, feel-good comedy. Aubrey Plaza is awesome. Can't wait to see what the director does with Jurassic World.

    Filth - 6/10

    It flies by, it's funny and well paced, apart from the last twenty minutes. Kind of a Scottish version of Fight Club without the fights. McAvoy is excellent. The end credits are awesome.

    Transcendence. Starts off okay, dips down dramatically in the middle, and the less said about the ending the better. Also feels like it evolved from a spec script for a Terminator reboot. I wouldn't bother.

    I was so looking forward to Transcendence when it was first announced. Sad to hear so many people didn't like it.

    I heard somewhere (Kermode, maybe) put forward the idea that the original script was very heavily edited and embellished at the last minute.

    Hypnotizing. I'm guessing its pretty polarizing but I loved it.

    The Three Muskateers (2011) - 5/10

    Wow, really bad film. The cast involved suggested a much better offering but it was awful with some really badly acted scenes.

    Oh, and Dartagnon or however its spelt was very badly cast.

    Working Girl - 6/10

    I love this very 80s sub-genre: The Capitalist Fairy Tale.

    When I was a kid I used to think it would be so cool to work for a big heartless corporation. Largely because of films like this. So yeah, I'm blaming my current career dissatisfaction on The Secret of My Success and Working Girl.

    It basically boils down to: dispense with ethics, no one cares who you are or what you do, as long as you make the firm money.

    The film is pretty enjoyable, but so dated.

    The Naked Island

    A family work tirelessly to eke out the barest of livings by farming on their isolated island that has little to no fresh water. Long boat trips are taken to fetch water from the mainland. Bleak yet strangely compelling and life affirming. There is almost no talking and it's filmed in documentary style. Harvest Moon the Movie it ain't.

    9/10

    Jay and Silent Bob's Groovy New Movie - 7/10

    Animated film which Jason Mewes wrote and produced as something to keep him distracted and away from all the bad shit he was throwing into his body.

    Anyway, it's exactly what you'd expect from this kind of film. Dicks, cum, sucking, fucking, in-jokes, lewd, crude and very rude homour. There's also a lot of recent pop-culture references.

    I found it very funny, but I like Kevin Smiths stuff. Cock Knocker is there as well as a character called Dick Head who's voiced by an Arnie impersonator.

    Some genuinely gut bustingly funny moments. It's only about an hour so doesn't overstay it's welcome.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Under the Skin

    Right up my dark & twisted sci-fi/horror alley. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    7.5/10

    Hadn't heard about this. Wasn't Jason Mewes wanted by the police a few years back, did anything come of it?

    Blu-Ray link

    Yep, but that was way back in 2002. He's been clean for over 4 years now.

    Saw then both last night as they were in Manchester at the Apollo showing the film. The showed the film, and did a live recording for their podcast and a Q&A and finished with "Let's fuck!" which is still giving me the giggles now.

    Posted in Episode 7 thread about what he saw when he went on set. Mewes talked about how fucked up he really was and it's genuinely uplifting to see he's beaten it all.

    They'll be doing the same sort of thing when Smith finishes his horror film Tusk.

    Knights of Badassdom
    LARPERs accidentally unleash a real demon.

    The trailer made it look awesome (so avoid it) but a lot of people have giving it middling reviews. If you go in expecting an 80's style straight to video action adventure along the lines of "Big Trouble in Little China" but with smaller budget you won't be disappointed.

    It has a few tricks up its sleeve that I definitely wasn't expecting

    Worth watching
