Thursday Movie Picks #293: Love in the Tech Age

Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share your movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.


This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Love in the Tech Age


Here are three movies that immediately came to mind.

Her (2013)
A man falls in love with his OS. feels soo long ago since I saw this. I remember liking it a lot and would love a rewatch.

Newness (2017)
Two millennials hookup when they swiped right on a dating app and start a relationship but they soon get bored and decide on an open relationship. This is my fourth Doremus movie, and I think this is at the bottom with Equals. The couple in this is bored by monogamy and I'm bored with them. 

Sierra Burgess Is a Loser (2018)
When the most popular girl in school as a prank gives a boy the number of a nerdy girl, Sierra, he starts a text message relationship with her thinking he's chatting with the popular girl. Sierra Burgess is a Loser...I mean really. The movie started sort of cute and silly but the whole mistaken identity went on for too long and gets too weird. Jamey still being interested in Sierra in the end was just so outrageous; the catfishing was bad enough than there was the whole invasion of privacy thing when Sierra got stupidly jealous and malicious and posted someones private was he able to get past all that?

  1. We match on Her! I love that movie. I haven't seen your other picks, this is the first time I'm hearing of Newness.

  2. I also have Her on my list! I didn't like Sierra Burgess, and I haven't seen Newness.

  3. We match on Her and Sierra Burgess. I wasn't a fan of either but I truly hated the latter.

  4. I expect Her to be popular this week. I haven’t seen it and want to. The other 2 I haven’t seen and that’s ok by me

  5. I picked Her last week so I couldn't mention it again so soon but of course it's a perfect pick here. Anyway, I have seen Sierra, it's awful. I hated it so much. All these "physical insecurities" Netflix movies are so offensive.. people can be insecure about themselves without being awful people. Tall Girl was also quite bad... Haven't heard nor seen of the middle one tho..

    1. I haven't seen Tall Girl...I saw the trailer and it looked like a budget movie, so I didn't see it.
