I can’t overstate how much I liked Her, which avoids so many flaming-barrel-like dangers in portraying love in the near-future that it’s like a live-action Donkey Kong kill screen attempt.

It’s been slowly rolling out to theaters and is only arriving in Austin this week, so I think it’s a movie that people are going to be talking about for a while as they catch up to it. It was what was on my mind for much of the holidays (I was lucky enough to see it in December).

I wrote an essay for my place of work about the movie, comparing it to a British anthology TV show called Black Mirror that Pablo and I both got our panties in a bunch about when it aired on DirecTV. I’m surprised we haven’t done a comic about that. Hey, I just had an idea for a comic! To the comicatorium for a bull session!
