Science Fiction Romantic Drama Film
I’m not often one to hyperbolize a sentiment, or go out of my way to make grandiose statements about a movie that I just watched or a book that I just read. If I enjoy something, I try not to toss around words like “classic,” or “awesome.” These kinds of adjectives are so over-used that they’ve practically lost their meaning. Besides, most movies aren’t instant classics. It takes time to build an audience, and it takes time to impact the audience in such a way that the movie becomes revered; hell, it takes time for anything to even fit the definition of “classic.” Spike Jonze’s Her has the potential to become a classic. At times, it’s even awesome. Awesomely classic. Classically awesome.
