    Slowed down by a lot of forensic political meanderings the film didn't always need, but a masterwork nonetheless.

    Technically pretty good, and I liked that it did something a little different - but was left a little underwhelmed; wasn't feeling the tone.

    Effortlessly and exquisitely cool.

  • Her



    There's not a single authentic moment in this movie and it strains so hard for poignancy. It veers so wildly from goofy/sitcom-esque set-pieces, to then supposedly moving moments. I couldn't believe how horribly miscast Scarlett Johansson was; her voice as the AI was like nails-down-a-chalkboard.

    Half a star for Joaquin's 'tache.
