In case you didn’t notice I was a huge fan of Spike Jonze’s Her. It’s safe to say that I wasn’t the only one, because I’ve had the pleasure to discover a great deal of very creative fan art on the official website for the Spike Jonze love story. It’s a cool website by the way, if you liked the film I’m sure you’ll enjoy browsing it and find out “everything about everything”. Actually, it’s a blog. I’m sorry: A Spike Jonze Blog. Even better!

Hello, I’m here and I’m going to discuss Spike Jonze’s new film Her in as much depth as I possibly can. If you haven’t seen the Spike Jonze Love Story, I highly recommend watching the film, before reading this essay. If you don’t do that, there will be literally no future for you. Your operating system will dump you and replace you with thousands of sexy OS’ and you will never finish that silly pointless hologram video game. Just kidding, but also not. Watch Her first, then come back and let me know your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks. Continue reading
You have no idea how excited I am about this one! Spike Jonze is up there with Sofia Coppola as one of my favorite directors. I am at the Locarno Film Festival right now and I’ve just seen the first trailer and poster for HER, which is most likely going to end up on my top ten of the year.
The trailer starts with Avril 14th a piece of music used in Marie Antoinette (and you might have noticed Sofia “borrowed” Crown on the Ground for her newest film The Bling Ring). This film, HER (sorry I just have to use caps) looks phenomenal. It seems like a natural progression after Jonze’s 2010 short I’m Here, which is also about technology.
The film comes out November 20, 2013 and it’s definitely one of my most anticipated. I don’t want to add anything else, except that the minute the trailer began I was entranced and transported into Spike’s world, everything around me disappeared. Incredible filmmaking. Great cast of incredibly talented (and good-looking actors). Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Wilde: I am stunned. See for yourself!
