Let's go see Spike Jonze's love story "Her" | 5:00 PM

Hello Chicago Film Lovers!

"Her" is opening at the Landmark on XMas day, so I bumped up the date to Sunday afternoon, January 5th. Look forward to starting the new year with all of you to go see Spike Jonze's love story "Her", starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson's sexy voice (which may get her an Oscar nomination :) ). Really good buzz for this film, great director, cast and a great soundtrack by Arcade Fire.

Have your tickets ready, we'll meet in the ticket/concession area and head up to the theatre at 4:45 PM for the 5:00 PM show. I'm pretty sure we won't all be able to sit together, but we'll reconvene after the film in the ticket/concession area for those of you who want to discuss the film afterwards.

Since Wilde Bar & Restaurant is so accommodating to our group I have made a reservation for 8 PM following the film. Reservation is under Rebecca. Some of you may want to drive there if you have a car, 'cause it'll be so cold, but it's not far of a walk for you public transporters like myself, just bundle up. See you then :)

Your proud to be organizer,

    If the weather isn't too bad, I'm going to try and meet you all at Wilde to discuss Her since I've already seen the movie.

    I really wanted to see this movie, but I'm out in the burbs and this weather is so bad, I'm just not going to be able to make it. Hope you all have fun and try to stay warm!

    Rebecca, et al: Sorry to say that I'm not going to make it. I'm feeling a bit under the weather and I don't want to expose myself to these ungodly temperatures. For those of you less wussy than me, enjoy the movie and discussion!

    I saw this film and have theater tickets for tonight, so I'm passing on this meetup. It's a fascinating film, visuals as well as content. There's an interesting parallel with a novel by Richard Powers, a writer in residence and professor at UIUC. Galatea 2.2 (1995) is about a writer who joins a tech team who are teaching a neural network to appreciate great literature. A personal relationship develops. Sort of a Pygmalion story. Has anyone read Powers' book?
