Tonight I deemed it “movie night” because, well, I had the night off and really didn’t feel like being social.
First up was The Social Network. I wasn’t sure what to think of the movie going into it. I’ve heard glowing reviews of the movie and well, had high expectations. It didn’t disappoint at all. I’m not entirely sure how much of the story in the movie is factual to the actual founding of Facebook, but damn it’s a great story. I see a lot of myself in the Mark Zuckerburg character in the movie. Of course, now I also just feel like I’ve let myself go. We’re both brilliant nerds… He’s a zillionaire, I’m uh..well let’s just say far from that.
For the next 2 I decided rather than watch one of the new movies I’ve got waiting to be watched, I’d go into my back catalog. First up was Chasing Amy. For those who have never seen it, by all means watch it. I’m a huge fan of Kevin Smith’s films and I think this is one of his best in the Jay and Silent Bob series. (For those who don’t know already, Dogma is my favorite.)
The last movie I watched was Heathers. Yeah…you probably either haven’t heard of it or don’t remember it. It’s one those 80’s teen drama movies. Candace is the first person to have shown it to me. I bought a copy when I found it in the discount bin at Walmart a long while ago. I haven’t watched it in a while and figured that since Christian Slater is back on TV, I might as well break it out.
Wait. So were you like expecting movie reviews or something?
