    ★★★★

    Strong performances from Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx help propel a story that’s unfortunately all too familiar.

    ★★★

    As far as Alien ripoffs go, this isn’t horrible. Kristen Stewart is certainly giving her all to this performance. I also have to give the movie credit for diving right into the chaos of its premise. It just fails to deliver much of anything beyond “Alien, but underwater!”

    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    ★★★★½

    The Lonely Island hits the big screen with the viciously funny Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.

    ★★★★★

    On the surface, the story of Her sounds a bit silly: a man falls in love with a highly advanced operating system. As it turns out, though, director Spike Jonze has created a love story that’s incredibly relevant for today. The film’s central message: learning to live through heartbreak and coming out better for it. It’s a message that should resonate with anyone who’s ever experienced a bad relationship, romantic or otherwise, and in Her, it’s told with warmth, humor, and not an ounce of cynicism.
