FLM, OMG, GMH

To really say that I have a favorite Jay-Z or Eminem song would be lying to myself, but if there’s a song that I can say really caught me off guard it would be “Space Bound,” a song about the hopelessness of finding love. I was just going through a very tough break up and I started listening to this and before I knew it I was crying in the bus in front of strangers. I knew what Eminem felt when it came to love and it was the first song I ever heard that really made me cry.

My first movie review: The Social Network

The Social Network or better known as “The Facebook movie” is a drama film based on the book The Accidental Billionaires. Even though no employees or staff members from Facebook (including creator Mark Zuckerberg) had any part making this movie it is still as entertaining as a movie based on a website could get. The movie starts with Mark Zuckerberg (played by the excellent Jesse Eisenberg) in a bar with his girlfriend Erica Albright (played by Rooney Mara) and even though she was in the movie for about ten seconds, she played the most important role in the development of Facebook. Without any spoilers if she did not do what she did Facebook would have never happened. David Fincher (Seven and Fight club) tells the story of Facebook origins by focusing on the uniqueness of Mark Zuckerberg and his gift of computer programming.
The movie is a blast from beginning to end with no dull moment or cheesy love scene in between. Some of the most important parts of the movie take place in two different court hearings but David Fincher never lets the movie become a court drama, in fact some of the movies best take place at the hearings. Everyone in the movie gave their best and that includes Justin Timberlake. Justin Timberlake is introduced in the movie about halfway in and took the movie on a whole other direction by playing Sean Parker the creator of Napster and the reason why Facebook lost the “the.” I am purposely leaving the movie’s story out because I don’t want to ruin anything for the reader but it’s a very good and well done movie. I highly recommend watching this and trust me if you have a Facebook page or have a friend with a FB or just have two hours to waste then by all means go see it and well worth the price of the tickets. A solid movie with a solid cast that maybe talked about when the award season comes along.
