Disney brings its nostalgia and freshness in one movie.
So basically it had princesses, castles and musical numbers and still I enjoyed it a lot and this is coming from a 20 year old guy.
Mostly because the whole Disney classic 'damsel in distress' thing is avoided and I got the movie that i expected Pixar's Brave to be. Also since I watched it with my cousins (aged 7-12) I could see that they enjoyed it 10 times more than me which implies it wins over its target audience completely.
The whole movie has an epic feel to it which I loved. My only complaint though is that I wanted more ice-princess-power-packed action The funny snowman character Olaf is in itself a major reason to watch.
Its like a funnier and more developed version of Tangled emphasizing on sisters' relationship. Very Enjoyable 1.5 hours.
Smart writing, an incredible performance and relevant themes make it worth a watch!
The Big Bang Theory made fun of this concept while Black Mirror explored its potential terror and now we have the perfect director to give us a serious and quirky yet grounded take on it. So its much more than 'a weird guy falls in love with his OS' for sure but did it give me the emotional high I hoped for? Ummm yes and no...
I am a huge Spike Jonze fan, I have watched all his features. While I appreciate all the themes he touches upon, his style and just the overall engaging quality about his work, I have not loved the rest of his movies. I liked all of them just not enough. They are unique and I admire them but that doesn't necessarily mean they're great.
Same experience here. There were moments that hit me and then there were 'You gotta be kidding me?!' moments.
Kudos to the movie for not creating a sympathetic character, the lead is flawed which make us empathize much more with him The soothing music, beautiful visuals and Joaquin Phoenix's layered performance helped me believe a lot of the things that happen in this 'not so near future'. Amy Adams is great as always and there were couple of genuinely funny scenes which were cleverly written.
Also when your OS sounds like Scarlett Johansson, who can blame you for falling in love with it
Overall I did like it, its just that I have seen some movies recently which I enjoyed more than this ( be it Dallas Buyers Club or The Wolf of Wall Street) . Watch it for the numerous technology and relationship themes it touches upon and for the sheer enigma of Jones' work.
Its like a painting which I couldn't stop looking at even if I wasn't completely awestruck by it.
