Director Spike Jonze had a commercial hiccup with Where The Wild Things Are. It was a beautiful film, but it was a mega-budget movie ($100M+) that didn’t break even financially and that usually spells death for most directors working within the Hollywood studio system (and the audiences who enjoy something else than the latest tent-pole super hero movie franchise). Luckily for us Spike Jonze fanboys Spike isn’t most directors and he’s back on his feet with this new film Her. It stars Joaquin Phoenix as a lonely writer who develops an unlikely relationship with his new Siri-like operating system voiced by Scarlett Johansson. Here’s to the future!


Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
