Thanks to my lovely friend B who “borrowed” this movie from the internet so I could satisfy my needs by watching it. The book is one of my all time favorites and made me cry multiple times. This movie adaptation managed to touch my heart (almost) equally as much. 
With that said I recommend you to read the book and/or watch the movie.

Might have had one of those guilty pleasure nights witch include being wrapped into blankets in the sofa with a big cup of tea in my hands. 
Fancy yourself a good amount of tears and some romance movies? Those  might be for you. And yes, this was my frist time watching them.

Matrix (1999) 
The plot:
Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a hacker known as Neo. Neo has always questioned his reality, but the truth is far beyond his imagination. Neo finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus, a legendary computer hacker branded a terrorist by the government. Morpheus awakens Neo to the real world, a ravaged wasteland where most of humanity have been captured by a race of machines that live off of the humans’ body heat and electrochemical energy and who imprison their minds within an artificial reality known as the Matrix. As a rebel against the machines, Neo must return to the Matrix and confront the agents: super-powerful computer programs devoted to snuffing out Neo and the entire human rebellion.
My thoughts: 
How could I not have seen this before? *Facepalm*

In time (2011) 
The plot: Welcome to a world where time has become the ultimate currency. You stop aging at 25, but there’s a catch: you’re genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it. The rich “earn” decades at a time (remaining at age 25), becoming essentially immortal, while the rest beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day. When a man from the wrong side of the tracks is falsely accused of murder, he is forced to go on the run with a beautiful hostage. Living minute to minute, the duo’s love becomes a powerful tool in their war against the system.
My thoughts: 
One of my classmates ranted about this movie for weeks and said that 1) Timberlake is in it and 2) the concept is unique and 3) the pace of it is breathtaking. Since I’m rather tired of dystopian-ish movies and books I was sceptic to watch it but after much convincing from her side I did. And it was just excellent! 
I’m no expert to talk about what quality a movie has or hasn’t but in my personal opinion I loved this movie overall, the acting was superb, the plot was unique and fast paced and breathtaking. Lastly the concept was unique and interesting since I haven’t stumbled across anything alike it before.
I really loved this movie and it is one of the best movies I’ve seen during 2013, and I’ve seen a lot of them this year. So if you’re into some Timberlake hotness , unique concepts and fast paced breathtaking movies well this might be for you.

Oh yes, the past can hurt.
But, you can either run from it or , learn from it.

Battle Royale [2000]
After hearing fantastic things about this movie and book I had to (after much convincing) check it out. This must be one of the most twisted movies I’ve ever seen. I’m still unsure if I loved it or hated it, because it was so… unique and brutal.

No subject is terrible if the story is true, if the prose is clean and honest, and if it affirms courage and grace under pressure.

As a bookworm I’ve not had the energy to read for fun with all the heavy university literature there is to read instead I’ve been watching more movies than ever. I blame it partly on my new relationship with Netflix. Here are a few favorites I wanted to share. If you haven’t seen them you’ve been missing out! 

  • Breakfast at Tiffany’s 
  • Safe Haven 
  • Iron Man (the trilogy) 
  • Extremely loud and incredibly close.
