Spike Jonze’s Her gives new meaning to computer love. Or does it? In the movie, Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), an unofficial divorcee, falls in love with his operating system, Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johanson). The film is poetically shot and the mise-en-scene is simply toothsome. Jonze’s genius shines through. Although hinting to the near future, the film speaks to an aspect of the current human condition: an existence inextricable to smart technology and digital mediation.

PFS Rapid Review – Walking with Dinosaurs

Walking with Dinosaurs tells the story of an underdog dinosaur that becomes the hero of his herd.  Spliced with informational snippets, the film introduces a variety of prehistoric beasts we hardly encounter in pop-culture. Thus, T-Rex doesn’t rule here. The voice actors aren’t the most pleasant to listen to for 87 minutes. Their performance adds a neurotic layer to the action. Yet, children seem to like it. And I suppose the 3-D experience is better.
