Alright, Alright, I’ll See It Already, Calm Down


I thought this was a photoshop joke at first, but I’m pretty sure it’s a real poster for Spike Jonze’s “Her,” a movie I was going to see anyway but now apparently I ABSOLUTELY MUST. LOOK AT ALL THOSE PALM FRONDS!

On a related note, I wonder if Scarlett Johansson could get a Best Supporting Actress nod for doing voicework alone in a movie. Has that happened before? I can’t remember the last time a disembodied voice played such a pivotal role in a film, so probably not.

I’m glad Joaquin Phoenix stopped pretending to be crazy and started acting again. Or just channeled his craziness into crazy roles like this one and The Master.

    This one seems interesting, but I also think I would sprain my eye muscles from all the eye-rolling I would do throughout it.

    Pass. I wrote a short story similar to this idea back in the 80’s.
