Movie Reviews by Melody Fox (aka the Princess of Rock)

As much as I Black heart (cards) Music–which is also an important topic in my life, both as a Journalist and as a DJ–movie going is one of my going out hobbies. I don’t go to a movie just for the sake of it, or because it has received some Special award, nor am I someone who goes with the flow–to go see something on the big screen, just because there have been rave reviews, or because someone has told me it’s a *must* go see flick…

When I decide to go see something on the big silver screen, I choose it for a variety of reasons: it could be the title, it could be because of being based on a true story, the actor (and not necessarily the person who plays the leading role), the movie director. I don’t decide to see something just because someone (either a friend, or an acquaintence) has talked about it or seen it. Each individual has a different opinion: and what they may *love*, could be a total dislike for someone else. It’s difficult that I say, generally speaking, that it was a great movie…usually, I say, that I liked or disliked it, explaining the reasons when asked. It makes me smile when someone raves on how great a movie was for them: for me, or anyone else, it could be just a total flop… lol 

HER is a movie that left me quite baffled…

Now, why did I decide to go see *Her*?  I was interested mainly in hearing the way Scarlett Johansson handled her vocal performance, but also because I like Joaquin Phoenix, a great actor!    Someone who falls in love with an operating system…That’s crazy (and sick?) don’t you think?!  However, with a voice like that, no wonder! lol (~_*)  

Come on people, get a life…

Two things I did like about the movie, however,  were the landscapes/photography, and the soundscore by Arcade Fire, especially the track on the end titles, *SuperSymmetry*…symmetry it was indeed.  One crazy thing on my side:  when I heard the company for whom he worked (beautiful letters.com), I decided to look it up.  I am very good in writing letters and figured, if it did exist, that I would contact them to see if I could get an online job.  Alas, the title exists, and it’s a free domain in search of someone who will buy it!  Want to start a business? 

Please give me some feedback on what I wrote, and also, if you saw the movie, let me know your thoughts.
