Hello, My name is Ric and I am a friend and patient of Dr. Packer's. He and his fantastic staff have asked me to write short reviews on movies since all I do is play golf and see 2-3 movies a week and I really don't have anything else to do! I have always wondered what qualifies a person to be a critic. I read the movie critics comments from the Austin American Statesman, San Francisco Chronicle & The Dallas Morning News primarily and some I agree with and some I don't. So, I thought what the heck, I will try and write reviews from my perspective. You may or may not agree with me but I am going to have fun doing it. (Hopefully)
***Rating (0-5): 4.5 stars***
After seeing the trailer I was not really interested in seeing this movie at first, but after prodding by my wife and her hairdresser, I reluctantly went. I think by far it is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. Very innovative, creative and something that is possible in the near future. The relationship with Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson is so unbelievable being that she is an Operating System ("OS") and as an OS is constantly evolving over time, becoming better & more powerful. Therefore, as with human relationships, their relationship is also evolving, for better or worse. I highly recommend this movie.
Fun Fact: A big portion of this movie was filmed in Shanghai to appear as a futuristic LA.
Also, love the men's pant style and Joaquin's safety pins on his shirt
