    Me: Hey, Hollywood, write great characters, let us marinade in their world, and have the patience to let us care. THEN bring the crazy-fun-violence.

    Hollywood: Meh.

    Me: One Star.

    Escape from Tomorrow

    ★★★½

    This is the very definition of ballsy filmmaking. While not everything worked for me, I can't help but marvel at the film and its Lynchian approach to a day at the "happiest place on Earth". We need more filmmakers taking risks like this.

    Her

    ★★★★★

    Spike Jonze's Her hit all the right notes with me. A small sci-fi romance that casts a long, sturdy rod into the deepest puddle of our fears and insecurities. With baited hook it dangles and bobs in the blackness, wanting answers as to what it is to be a bumbling flesh bag of emotions...and to share your terrifying jelly sack with another.

    I could go one with more pretentious metaphors, but I'll keep them to myself. Locked away until my artificial lover taps into my head and exposes them.

    A beautiful, humorous and oddly terrifying film. More cinema like this please.
