I’ve been such an old lady lately and keep complaining that they don’t make movies like they used to. But the new Spike Jones movie—about a man (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his computer—looks really weird and great. I’m crushing on the juxtaposition of Scarlett Johannson’s throaty/non-mechanical voice set as the computer voice-over.
The movie also wins bonus points in my book since one of my fave bands, Arcade Fire, wrote the original score for the movie!
I’ve a bit of a confession as well… I think I may be in love with computers, especially after getting my new smart phone last week. I’m hooked! Now if only I weren’t so absentminded, and could keep track of all the apps without getting confused. D’oh!
Anyway, I’ll be staying warm, cozy, and out of the rain this weekend to catch this movie.
Have a lovely weekend!
