Movies often offer a glimpse on the future. At times that vision is bright, while other times it’s gloomy. Then there are cases in which it’s absolutely hilarious and yet deep and thought provoking. The concept of video games showcased by Spike Jonze’s film “Her” definitely fits in this category.
The movie tells the story of a lonely and geeky writer developing a relationship with the new and quite talkative operating system installed on his computer, and provides a vision on video games that looks like the Xbox One brought to futuristic extremes. It even has something similar to Kinect and a pseudo-snap feature.
