Hot Mess Mondays: I’ve Been Enlightened

One of my readers sent me a very interesting article about the fictionalized nature of The Social Network. Of course we all know that Hollywood exaggerates the truth in all of its movies, but the question is by how much. As someone who does not personally know Mark Zuckerberg and can only go by what I read in the media, I must admit that I was persuaded by the film to believe that he his life was/is borderline sad and depressing. However, after reading “The Social Disconnect – How Hollywood Misread Facebook” by Jose Antonio Vargas, I see that maybe I rushed to quickly to judgment.

Granted Vargas’ article is more focused on how The Social Network didn’t explain the significance of Facebook well rather than on how much of a mess Zuckerberg potentially is. So, if anyone knows Mark, please tell us what is either true or not true  in The Social Network. Curious minds want to know. 😉

Regardless of any comments, however, Zuckerberg will stay at the top of my Hot Mess List, simply for changing my Facebook profile and privacy settings numerous times without MY consent! lol I don’t care about how “open” you want the world to be.

Hot Mess Mondays: Have The Celebs Been On Good Behavior?

Of course not. lol With that said, it’s not Hollywood that made the number one spot today. It’s…

1) Mark Zuckerberg – For having a being a hot mess.

UPDATE: I have to change my hot mess description because maybe Zuckerberg’s life wasn’t all bad. With that said, he’s still a hot mess and has made some hot mess decisions without the consent/knowledge of the ones most being affected by them.

**Original post: That description might sound a little harsh, but if a fraction of the The Social Network is true, then Zuckerberg is a hot mess personality, who made hot mess decisions.

With that said, he’s the youngest billionaire in the world. BUT, we all know that money does not buy happiness.

2) The Situation – For being absolutely terrible on Dancing With The Stars.

Last week, Jersey Shore‘s The Situation had his second go at the dancing competition, and from what I saw it wasn’t too good. We all excused him for the first week when he didn’t have as much time to rehearse as the other contestants. Saving him for a second time, however, might have been a bad idea America. The kid doesn’t even know what musicality is…

I do kinda like his haircut though. lol

3) Angelina – For being the least liked member of the Jersey Shore.

Living in a house full of characters, both good and bad, how is it that you manage to become the least liked cast member? I don’t know, but that’s the question I want to ask Jersey Shore’s Angelina. Even though Angelina’s departure was supposed to be the highlight of Thursday night’s episode, I think I was more entertained by Pauly D and the boys’ “It’s TTT-shirt Tiiiiiiime!” than with anything involving Angelina…

4) T.I. for possibly getting his probation revoked.

Earlier last month, I reported that T.I. and his wife Tiny were arrested in West Hollywood. Now, it looks like T.I. will be facing a federal judge next Friday. He better get down on his hands and knees, and beg not to have his probation taken away. Geez…

5) Calvin Harris for making a big deal out of nothing.

On my last Music Tuesday, I posted a link to Chris Brown’s new single “Yeah 3x,” unaware of the controversy surrounding it. If you go on YouTube and read the comments under “Yeah 3x,” you will see a lot of support for UK singer and DJ Calvin Harris. Apparently, Mr. Harris accused Chris Brown of stealing his beat from “I’m Not Alone.” Now, I listened to both singles, and it’s true. Chris’ beat is beyond similar. With that said, the beat is not Harris’ original work. If you do a little research, Mr. Harris took his own beat from The Chemical Brothers. Honestly, who cares about any of this stuff anyways? ALL music is sampled nowadays. Smh…

All Facebook Users Should See ‘The Social Network’

Hi boys and girls!

I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend as much as I am. As planned, I saw The Social Network today, and I have to give David Fincher a lot of props for directing a pretty good movie. Beginning from the days when Mark Zuckerberg was still a young sophomore at one of the world’s most prestigious institutions, Harvard University, The Social Network is both dark and comedic.

If this movie is an accurate portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of Facebook, then I don’t know what to think. All I can say is that I now understand why Mark Zuckerberg is pissed. In the movie, he’s a social outcast with a serious cry for attention. Not to mention, he’s also a backstabbing friend and thief.

Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg, and Andrew Garfield

Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Zuckerberg, was genius at maintaining the overall tone of the film. While watching The Social Network, I really felt bad for the guy. I mean, how can anyone live with tons of knowledge and money, but with no friends? As far as the other actors, I thought that Justin Timberlake held his own as Sean Parker, the founder of Napster and part owner of Facebook. However, the stand out performances in my opinion were from Andrew Garfield and Armie Hammer, who played Eduardo Saverin (Zuckerberg’s ex-best friend) and the Winklevoss twins (“originators” of the Facebook idea) respectively.

Armie Hammer

Side note: It’s so funny how the movies can still trick us. During the movie, the other girls I was with and I commented on the hotness level of Armie. At the time, we had no idea that he was only one man! lol Not to mention, Armie Hammer is apparently the heir to the Arm and Hammer fortune. Say whaaaaat?! Where’s my Armie!  lol jk

ANYWAYS, if you haven’t seen The Social Network, go check it out. I think it’s worth the 12 bucks. As for all the Oscar buzz surrounding it, I am not completely convinced yet that the movie should take home any awards. With that said, we know how Hollywood and the Academy are. Once they’ve chosen their favorite front runners, it doesn’t matter what any of us think. Sad, but true.

Film Fridays: Mark Your Calendars for The Social Network

Well folks, another week has ended.

Ever since moving to LA, I feel like my life has completely flown by. Where did my college years and summer go?! Lol Anyways, I blame movies for allowing my summer to go by so quickly. With a new movie release every weekend, my sunny weekends all blurred into one giant movie fest.

Anyways, there’s not too much being released this particular weekend, but one movie  to look out for in the near future is The Social Network, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Brenda Song, Rooney Mara, and a few other younger stars.

The Social Network has been getting a lot of Hollywood buzz. People are very excited to see this film in Tinseltown. With that said, now that I’m living in LA, the very place where movies are made, I can no longer tell what the buzz is across the rest of the country. However, I do know that everyone is practically a Facebook user. And, with all of the controversies surrounding Mark Zuckerberg, the social networking site’s founder, who wouldn’t want to see the story of about how Facebook came to be?

p.s. Apparently, Mr. Zuckerberg is not too thrilled about having a movie based off of his life in theaters. What’s wrong Zuckerberg? Afraid we all might learn the truth? lol

The Social Network comes out October 1st. 🙂

Side Note: The Town, Easy A, Machete, The American, and even Inception should all still be playing in a theater near you. 😉
