justfornow: ([TSN] {Andrew} b&w - oh pretty thing)

A few days ago, Mark taught me how to play downloaded movies on my computer - and this was the first on my list. Needless to say, I am in love. I have to admit to rather brainlessly liking movies. I'm not much of a critic and it honestly takes a lot for me to hate a movie - but at the same time it takes a lot for a movie to truly move me and this did just that.

I thought I'd be a little freaked out by the premise, but this worked for me. And even though it was kind of scary, I was mostly just feeling the same fear that the characters were feeling.

Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan (and even Keira Knightley, who I usually greatly dislike) were fantastic. Just. Holy shit. I sobbed, ngl. This isn't a movie I am going to forget any time in the near future.

I also may have ordered the book off amazon about two minutes ago. 

Because this movie made me feel things and kind of got me motivated, here's a picspam of some of the most beautiful and moving film scenes ever.



Sorry about my lack of posting and commenting lately. Real life has been sort of a blur lately and I haven't spent much time on the internet. I love you all. <3

I watched The Social Network again last night and I noticed some things that I didn't notice the first time around. 

1. (And, yes, I realize that I'm probably the last person to realize this.) At the beginning when Mark is blogging, he is using livejournal. This amuses me for a couple of reasons: a) just simply because he's using LJ and that just makes me happy and b) people he knows in real life actually read his blog. 

2. I really, really dislike Sean. Not even just because he kind of weasels his way between Mark and Eduardo, but just simply because I think he's a bad person. That and the part with the cocaine (Is it cocaine? I can't remember.) at the end really freaks me out. 

3. Jesse really, really should have won the academy award.

4. I'm still hopelessly in love with Andrew.

All that being said, after I watched it, I dug into my "to read" Mark/Eduardo folder and ran across a really, really amazing fic that makes me feel all fuzzy inside. It's just... It feel so real to me. It has a hopeful ending, too, and so, so many emotions. It mostly takes place while they're still at Harvard, which for some reason I don't usually like. But this is amazing. And it's a longfic and everyone should read it. Really. 

crept out the front door slow by [livejournal.com profile] ymorton . [NC-17] Based on the kinkmeme prompt- Eduardo has this thing, where whenever he's drunk drunk, he basically makes out with whoever's around. -- but then it became a massively angsty love story. oops.

My new celebrity crush: Andrew Garfield. I really wanted to see Never Let Me Go, but now that I know he's one of the main characters I will probably hyperventilate until I get my hands on it. I mean, just look at him. So pretty. 

I also did the unthinkable and joined The Social Network fandom. There went the last of my free time. It has, however, helped me deal with my lost iPod. So. That's a good thing, I suppose.
