Hello hello! Hope you had a lovely long Holiday weekend. It's quite a nice and relaxing holiday for me, though it ended up being a pretty busy one hanging out with friends.

Once in a while, a film you hadn't heard much about suddenly sneaked in and took your breath away. In 2013, that film for me was HER. In its simplistic terms, Spike Jonze's sci-fi drama is about a guy who falls in love with an Operating System. Yes, that alone is downright bizarre, which at …
