Your life feels different on you, once you greet death and understand your heart's position. You wear your life like a garment from the mission bundle sale ever after -- lightly because you realize you never paid nothing for it, cherishing because you know you won't ever come by such a bargain again.

The Social Network


The Social Network is a movie about the evolution of Facebook, how Marc Zuckerberg came to be the youngest billionaire in the world and how you;
"Don't get to 500 million friends, without making a few enemies.".
I found this movie seriously interesting, and it made me want to start something on my own - a web company, thing is... i think this movie instills this feeling in most of us, when we see how Marc came to his huge amounts of success. Sure, there's ups and downs - but in the end, he had Facebook, the single largest site in the world.
I must say that i'm amazed at the entire story, and i can see how Zuckerberg could think that this should not be allowed to be a feature film. I think, however, that it does not necessarily make him out as the bad guy.
I was pretty much positively suprised by this movie.
Much of this movie is actually the music, as there's not really alot going on on the visual side - it's mostly a "thinking" movie, and it has alot of subtle hints in it.

Over all, this movie was a solid 10 out of 10 for me.
It's a definate watch!

By the way; a quick update for you guys:
My media commercial is due for handing in around monday, meaning that i'll be able to modify it after that point, and possibly put it online for you guys to watch! Thanks for all the positive interest :)
