It's so through-provoking.

Haven't had so much thoughts for a while ever since Ruby Sparks.

Somehow it seems like a message that one day computers that can really behave like humans may actually take over the world. I wonder how that would turn out. It's pretty much a movie that makes you wonder how some people's life could be happening right now and you wouldn't even know it.

With the creation of Siri, and the ability for her to be able to crack jokes and make insinuative retorts back at your suggestions makes it all the more so likely that Samantha could happen. Though somehow, I always think that movies are a depiction of what has happened in the past, or what could happen in the future, and that's what makes it so good; relate-ability.

Whether fact or fiction, as long as a part of it can be related to how we feel, or what we want to be, we attach that thought toward it and try to project it out for the world to see. The very same heroic feeling you get when you come out after watching Avatar, half in awe of the great effects and the other half; how, maybe in another parallel universe, you could also be living out that life.

This movie's a pretty simple illustration of many people's lives, whether we like it or not. The world has around 43% (I read somewhere) of the population of SINGLES. Another part of that sum, looking for their partners, and if you've been in love, you'll know that finding the right one is not as easy as that dream couple that you see on television, or that lucky bastard of a friend you have that was able to find one.

Most people don't call it a destination, but a journey, because the only time your wife is really your wife, is when she's in the grave. Any other time, she could leave you for another person, or grow tired of being with you. The highest probability of happiness, would be in your own decisions, because if ever it should fail, the fault lies in you and you only, thus the hurt would be lessened.

I guess that's why many people (myself included) get sucked into the magical world of gaming, where your only commitment is in your decisions. The fantasy world, where it's all not real, but when you're there in the spur of that moment, it all feels so palpable. All the more if you have an OS that actually can have feelings, that actually caters to your personality, what more can people ask for?

Now I know why I really got addicted to gaming. No commitments, no need to deal with shit from the world, and at the same time, we called the shots, because we pretty much were the "best". People catered to us, rather than us having to sacrifice and accommodate. Heh, but it's all over now I guess. 

"I don't know... I'm not in it"
"I can over-think things and find a million ways to doubt myself"
"We're only here briefly, and while I'm here, I want to allow myself... joy"

All in all, it's great, one of the movies that I think are better lately, that wasn't action or fantasy (Avatar/Star Wars-like)
