The critics raved about it. Rotten Tomatoes fans had it at 87%. There was “Oscar talk” for it’s leading man. The movie? “Her”. A small movie about Theodore Twombly, a quiet introverted guy whose job is to write beautiful poetic soulful personal letters for other people. He acquires a new phone with an operating system that he falls in love with.
One hour into the movie, we walked out. Mind you, this is long past our usual stay or walk cut off time. If a movie is boring or not capturing attention within 20 minutes of the start, OUT. And we ask for our money back, Which we did with this movie. But we did something different. Instead of a monetary refund, we took tickets to another film. This gem was “Saving Mr. Banks”. Ok so maybe this is my most recent movie that the critics and fans loves but I didn’t. Both boring as heck and I didn’t care about the characters one iota.
That’s a current personal record, ya’know. Two lousy movies in one day.
Well, off to the movies!
