Wow this movie was so sad, and funny, and happy at the same time. This is the kind of movie that puts a smile on your face one second and breaks your heart the next. The ending really made me upset, Samantha and Ellie, Amy's BFF OS, just went away into the web one day, and they had to live with that grief. I was almost in tears to be honest with you, but I did love the ending.
- The colors were so vibrant throughout and really nice to look at throughout.
- The concept of the film was really cool and obviously based sometime in the future where we have AI, WR Video games, and cool AirPods things to talk to your OS.
- The character development of Theodore was great in the sense of he finally learned how to cope with his emotions and feel true love with Samantha right before she let him go.
- I liked how most of the film had little music, and the convo's between the OS and Theodore were so cool and like she was actually there.
- Samantha's character development was super cool, and how she transformed into basically a super human computer by the end.
- I liked this part don't get me wrong, but the fact that Samantha was in love with like 650 other people really got to me because he was falling in love with one while she was falling in love constantly with other people because she is a program.
- Some of my favorite parts of the film where the time lapses of their developing relationship like: Going to the beach, going on a picnic, people watching, going to the fair, etc.
-Too long for what the concept was. I believe that an hour and 50 mins would have been enough.
-Felt dragged on at times where I just felt like I needed a break from it because there was no filling if that makes sense.
- I felt some of the sexual scenes were too much and not needed throughout.
Overall: 3 1/2 out of 5 Stars

Spike Jonze movies are usually always beautiful, thought provoking, unintentional funny and charming. This is all of those, but for me it's also just a bit flat and dull
In a near future, a lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with an operating system designed to meet his every need.

My favorite film ever. Joaquin’s best role. The coloring, the design, the costumes, the soundtrack, it’s such an aesthetically pleasing film to watch, but it is also a sweet, yet heartbreaking story with amazing performances from Joaquin, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and of course the voice of Scarlett Johansson. It will fuck you up mentally, but you will still love it.

Thought provoking movie about love, technology, AI and the boundaries between what’s real and not. It will tear at your heartstrings - cute and heartbreaking at the same time!
Beautifully filmed and great dialogues between Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson!
Fell in love with this movie
