Sure, 2013 had a boatload of good movies. But 2014 looks like it's off to a promising cinematic start. Here are five flicks to see this January.

Joaquin Phoenix stars in Spike Jonze's Her, which is about Theodore Twombly, a lonely soon-to-be divorced man who falls in love with his artificially intelligent operating system, Samantha, voiced by Scarlett Johansson.

Of course, she cannot offer him the depth of a human relationship. And his messy life needs tending in analog. Yet Twombly and others embark on digital relationships, platonic and otherwise, with different versions of the OS, which can tailor itself to the personalitiy of its user. The film gets a wide release Friday, January 10. Admission prices vary.
