a) Beforehand: Having ideas about going to see the movie "Her" today. He might just about get there in time.

b) Afterwards: "Her" almost had the feeling of a Canadian scifi movie without Canadians. It was quite pleasing enough, generally sweet and maybe at times cruel. Probably a movie to watch once. It also brought Wmm to consider various things going on in Nymphomaniac Part 1. However I think these days that if a software company came up with an artificial life form and it was capable of using your private information, you might not want to get as close as that to it, but the naive perspective of the situation was the only way to make a fun and unusual movie and it wasn't as if the artificial life form was going to start trying to sell you health insurance, or whatever it was you were innocently browsing for about five minutes on Amazon or Ebay for the six to eight weeks. There are questions though about what you would share with an AI that had access to every file on your computer and even a way of looking further.

a) Beforehand
Had better get going into central London. Will I get to the cinema in time to see the new movie that stars Liam Neeson that takes place aboard a plane and has a title which Wmm can of course not remember, but is by the same director as Unknown which Wmm thinks of as Total Recall remake. I wonder if this new Liam Neeson movie will be like a disguised remake of another science fiction movie, but is not wondering as much as that. I'm prepared to accept all if today's plans disintegrate while sitting on the train.

b) Afterwards
1) The new Liam Neeson movie Non-Stop was wonderfully mind bending stuff but became disinteresting once one found out who was doing what and why and then mercifully it quickly finished. Explanations were not ultimately worth knowing about and how whoever was doing what and when was not ultimately explained. I'd would like some sort of a rumour about some sort of an alternate ending to float around.
2) Looks as if there are a good few disappointed by the ending
3) well, I suppose they bring in money, just wish the ending was a bit better, the cinematography was nice, it had possibilities. It might have been nice if he did Spielberg's movie about Lincoln but Spielberg left it too late and he felt too old to play the role
