Ruby Sparks Reviews
To be honest, I had no idea what to expect from this movie but since there was a nice cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, it was really neat to see Paul Dano playing the lead for once. Indeed, even though the guy is definitely one of the most talented actors of his generation, he seems terribly underrated. Anyway, in this movie, he gave another strong performance playing a smart and really interesting character who was also at some points, a rather anti-social douchebag, but it made the guy even more interesting. Concerning the story itself, well, even though it was fairly entertaining, I can't say it really blew me away though. Basically, they came up with a decent gimmick but that's what it was, a gimmick, but not much more than that, I'm afraid. I mean, it's not that I needed some kind of explanation or something more realistic but I never thought that the concept was really fascinating. Actually, you could compare this movie to 'Her' which had a similar gimmick but the big difference was that Spike Jonze really managed to go beyond this gimmick delivering a fascinating character study. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, even if I wasn't completely sold, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
