It seems that almost everyone loves Her (Blu-ray release 2014-5-13), in which the protagonist falls in love with an artificial operating system.  People seem to like its in-depth examination of love and relationships, but this is not what I care about, since there must have been many other excellent movies that explored these areas as well.  What made this movie unique is obviously the human-computer relationship, which clearly does not work in the real world (with current technology).  Although it is rather common in Japanese anime, it should still be potentially fascinating in a live action movie.

[SPOILER]

However, at the end the movie rejected this type of relationship.  The way I look at it, the movie rejects its own premise, and therefore it rejected itself.  I think it is rather pointless to show the audience that it does not work, because we already know it cannot without the need to watch it.
