Balloons on a Bookmark Scientific Evaluation:
Awesome Actors: 15/25
Brenda Song as a krazzzy girlfriend? You make me proud. Bonus points for former boy band-ers.
Utter confusion for the first 10 minutes, but it came together pretty quickly.
Ugly Cry: 0/25
Visual Appeal: 10/25
Dorms and offices? Non-offensive but not all that exciting. More sweeping views of Cambridge or something would have been appreciated.
Of all of the Best Picture nominees, The Social Network was one of two movies I was interested seeing, regardless of the challenge.
Lingering Thoughts: 5/10
Why would Erica get a Facebook account, regardless of how much time had passed or how popular it got?
Unexpected Expectations: 10/15
I had heard so many good things about the movie, my expectations weren’t quite met; however, they were pretty high to begin with. I’ll call it a wash.
Movie Poster: 5/5
PB&J with spinach and goat cheese salad.
General Viewing Experience: 5/5
Overall Thoughts: 30/45
I liked everything but the script, which is what the movie is getting the most kudos for, from what I can tell. I thought it was needlessly jerky and the ending was kind of abrupt. Other than that, not too bad.
