    I quit Her after about 45 minutes. I can't stand Scarlett Johansson or Joaquin Phoenix though so maybe with different people I would have watched the whole thing.

    Watched 20 Feet from Stardom on a plane, having missed it in the theaters. Enjoyed it.

    You might be right , but I got the impression that it covers several subjects well.
    Alienation by IT technology (JP's character profession is to write letters for other people)-how sad :) well its better than Hallmark cards.
    Identity and existential lonely-together business.
    Exclusivity in the relationship and how forced it is. The whole business of marriage (ownership) as a version of property-contract. etc.
    Commentary on partnership or marriage between people and how it is all in our heads, body or no body.
    And of course death and afterlife, it takes imagination to take on that subject without resorting to platitudes and old fairy-tales.

    My wife had the same reaction at 41 min :) I stopped watching and then watched it alone a few days later. Try it, you might enjoy it alone . JP was really superb in this.

    ive been hearing about people walking out for various reasons. an old man sitting near us got up during the phone sex call; walked down the aisle hurriedly with his popcorn in hand. then when the nude image flashed on the screen, he paused. then took another several steps before the sex scene turned into a 10-15 flash at which time he completely stopped, paused, proceeded to walk to the very bottom and sat in the front alone. finished watching the movie he did :nodding:

    Watched Dallas Buyers Club, thought Matthew Mcconaughey did a good job but nothing special, he is doing a much better job on True Detective which btw if anyone has not seen, check it out. Jared Leto was insanely convincing and i think he did a great job.

    I won't be surprised if MM gets the oscar for this but Christian Bale did a much better job in American Hustle for that category.

    What about it? It's boring. The only remarkable thing about it is its length.

    I said the same thing a few pages back. It's a masterpiece.

    I feel like watching la hain in the near future.

    I actually watched bad grandpa yesterday. Pretty good for that kind of movie.
